Checkerboard & Polka Dots are a Wonderful Match

I wore this for dinner and grocery shopping on my first full day back in Athens. I've decided these prints are supposed to be paired together. Actually pretty much anything goes with polka dots in my book, but this is my newest experiment. I like it! The black and white prints look really good together. 

You guys. These shoes are so comfortable. So I'm sorry but you'll be seeing them a lot since I actually have to walk places now that school is happening again.

Matt took these pictures for me. Didn't he do a nice job? I'm teaching him well.
In related news, cohabitation with Matt is going well. I'm glad we get along so nicely. I guess that makes sense since we've been dating almost 6 years. (Holy crap, has it been that long? Where is the time going?)

Well, I've survived the first two days of class. I'm thoroughly stressed out with the thought of work-to-come, but taking last night to sit back and read some blogs helped me relax. Also getting more sleep helps. Luckily I get to sleep in today! 

Also, I want to thank you guys for still reading my blog even though I've been so behind on reciprocating your comments. You're da bomb.

Have a great Wednesday!

I may just be a bit silly because I read 'Athens' and immediatly started thinking why the hell have I been reading this blog and didn't noticed you lived in Greece haha sometimes I'm just so up in the clouds!

This is a pretty slammin outfit. Those prints were totally made for each other, the stores just didn't get the memo!

I absolutely adore these two prints together, they look perfect. Those polka dot shorts are so great.
I can't imagine living with a boy, but you guys have been together for so long it's no surprise it's going well :)

You remind me of a deck of cards here, hee hee! And it's so cute! You're a cute deck of cards. I'm seriously loving that top--the print is so fun!

It's nice to have cute comfy shoes that you can walk around campus all day in... those are adorable!

Oh, I think these patterns are great together. :-) I really love the detail of the black hair bow, though. <3
