{Outfit}: Porsches and the Panama Canal Expansion

Polka Dots OOTD Polka Dots OOTD

  Sunday May 5, 2013

If you follow me on Instagram (find me @thejoyoffashionblog), you probably know that I went to a Porsche event this weekend. We had the wonderful opportunity of driving over to see the expansion of the Panama Canal!

I went with a triple pattern mix outfit today combining my polka dot dress, my ladybug polka dot purse, and my new zigzag flats!! I know its a lot of print, but somehow I like how it looks together :)

For those of you who don't know, the Panama Canal is ongoing an expansion right now to add a third set of locks. This will double the capacity of the Panama Canal by allowing larger ships to go through. Its estimated to be ready by 2014.

It is soooo exciting to see history in the making and I am just so proud of Panama :)
