Good morning, chambray; Monday says hello. You polka dot above us, and there’s polka dots below.

Okay, I’ll stop now. Kudos if you know what lyrics I’m spoofing.  Anyway, yes, it’s a polka dot chambray sort of day. Why? Because Two Birds gave us this Inspiration Monday photo and while I could have gone with a plain chambray over my lace dress I decided that double polka dots with a chambray shirt and my pleated skirt were better.

Why better? See, today I am meeting Jen from Librarian for Life and Style for the first time! And since she’s one of the reasons I bought this skirt (she has an adorable twirly pleated skirt I love) I thought it appropriate that I wear it for our very first meeting.

Tucked in or knotted? I couldn’t decide.

There are lots of other fun things going on this week! First, today and tomorrow I’m also doing Sarah’s Real Life Pin to Real Life Pinterest challenge. Why only today and tomorrow? Well, Wednesday I’ll be posting my June shopping summary and then Thursday and Friday I’m out of the office for the Fourth of July holiday.

Never fear, though, if you need a Loop Looks fix later this week I do have some non-outfit posts coming up. Consider it my Fourth of July holiday gift to you.

P.S. It was really windy on the roof.
