Polka Dot Dress

Would you believe this dress had been sitting in my closet for years, purchased sometime in college and never worn? I had forgotten about it until the polka dot trend started. It was this weird in between length, past knee length but shorter than a maxi. Finally it dawned on me that if I shortened it, it would be perfect. (Duh! Why didn't I think of that years ago?!). Thanks to my mom's sewing skills, I feel like I have a brand new polka dress.
Luckily the weather was sunny and warm this weekend, giving me the chance to wear it. It hit 82 degrees yesterday (the warmest it's been all year). Naturally this meant I wanted to cram in all the summertime activities I could into an 8 hour span...eating Chipotle burritos al fresco, walking the dogs along the beach (Jinx swam in the ocean), sitting on the porch with a friend, and barbecuing. The only hitch... the grill was out of propane so we had to settle for boiled hot dogs instead. Perfect weekend in the perfect polka dot dress.
