Spotted

Denim Jacket- Vintage
Vintage Tee- Gap
Pleated Polka Dot Skirt- H&M
Black Wedges- Payless
Initial Face Watch- Urban Outfitters

     I have been dying to wear this skirt since holiday time. For some reason, I kept thinking I needed a fancy place to wear it. But it was so hot the other day, and I am currently obsessed with my denim jacket, so I decided to play it down in a big way. I threw on an old Gap t-shirt and I was sold! I love the look. I am going to try to start incorporating my "fancy" pieces with my basics, they need to see more then just the inside of my closet! 

     And lets talk about this clutch for a minute... it is so gorgeous! Madison Elizabeth has the best handmade clutches on Etsy. They are so well made and the lining inside has huge polka dots which is just the kinda sweet surprise I love to know is hiding inside! There are all different color ways but I was smitten with the grey and teal. As a treat to you guys (and I don't see her codes very often!) Madison is offering 10% off of your purchase for The Weekend File readers!

     We went and tried out our newly opened Umami Burger on this evening. I have to say, I was disappointed! I loved Umami Burger in LA the time we went, so much that I have been claiming it is the best burger ever, but ours didnt seem to have the same perfection. It was pretty greasy and thrown together, with that being said the OC location just opened, and they seemed a little "off" in the kitchen so I will give them a few months to work the kinks out and go back! Have you tried Umami Burger? Where is your favorite burger joint?

  1. I LOVE this outfit. I also like to pair 'fancy' stuff with a t shirt or jean jacket...or keds! :) I bought a skirt ALMOST identical to yours at a thrift store and wore it with black tights and boots on Sunday to church. :)

    1. Umami is a delicious burger chain in LA. It is supposed to be like perfectly crafted ingredients going together to create the perfect taste.

  6. I've never been to Umami Burger. My favorite burger place is The Butcher Shop. It's a local place and they are DELICIOUS. So good.

    1. Yeah I don;t buy too many expensive things, I feel too guilty! It is from holiday time though, but I have seen plenty similar ones right now at F21 with pleats and polka dots.
