Checkerboard Print Top, Pink Tights, & a Bouffant

I wore this outfit downtown on Saturday. I wore my silk checkerboard print top I thrifted a couple years back underneath my little black dress. I'm convinced every blouse looks good layered underneath it! Especially crazy prints like this! The bouffant was a necessary addition too, I think. They kind of make every outfit better.

I allowed myself a break from school stuff since I'd never been downtown for the Twilight bike race before! Matt and I caught some of the race and had a couple drinks. This certainly wasn't what everyone else was wearing downtown, but I'm not into being cold and looking like everyone else. Seriously, do these girls ever check the weather? They were all in shorts and bodycon dresses in 50 something degree weather. Dumb.

Matt took these pictures for me! Didn't he do a good job? 

I hope you're having a happy Monday! I need to get back to work!

Hahaha! I love how straightforward you are. "Dumb." Yeah, I often wonder if people ever check the weather, especially considering how much they complain about it. ;)

Gosh, I love this outfit. Your checkerboard top is INCREDIBLE and I love those pink tights. Pretty, pretty lady!

Absolutely stunning Jamie. I am really starting to love checker board print at the moment, I am desperate to own some myself. It looks perfect with that dress and red tights. Every time I see this hairstyle I so wish I knew how to do it.

Twilight bike race? Sounds neat. Athens always has interesting things. I never get when girls wear really short, tiny things on cold days. I loed watching sorority girls on their way to frat parties on campus in December. SO FUNNY. Anyhow, your dress is adorable - I love that it ties in the back!

Your bouffant!!! It's so cute. And the checkerboard pattern is fun for a race.

I didn't end up going downtown for the races this year -- I had a bad allergy attack and slept in. Also I knew the weather would be so-so and I didn't feel too bad. Hope you had fun!
