Polka Dot Blouse


Do you ever start a home project and then don't finish?  

Weeks ago (while the kids were still home for summer vacation - what was I thinking??) I decided to paint our kitchen and living room.  I wanted it back to a bright white.  When I start a project like this, I dive right in.  Two days of non-stop painting.  Laundry got backed up, the kids had all their stuff out and about and then we left for vacation.  We had a blast and returned with 5 suitcases of more laundry.  Just try to imagine what the house looked like!  The paint cans are still on the kitchen counter begging for me to finish the last section that needs re-touched.  I ignored it the last week of summer vacation and had fun with the kids and tried to dig myself out of the laundry hole I was in.  But now I need to go get a new paintbrush and finish.  This is the week!  Then it's on to the task of redecorating those rooms - new curtains, coffee table, accessories, etc.  It's been well overdue.  


So I've been on a black and white kick lately.  
Polka dots are a happy print and this blouse from Express makes me happy!  This blouse comes in 28 solid colors and a huge variety of prints and patterns!  Right now they are on sale for BOGO 50% off.    This is a closet staple!

  6. I do the same thing with home projects. I will decide in a day I'm going to do something, get started, then everything get chaotic! But on the bright side, it's going to be beautiful and crisp when you're finished! Love the polka dots.
