I was the girl that went to the birthday party had a blast, ate some cake and then headed out the door with the "goody bag". Remember those? Every girl left with a little bag saying "thank you for showing up to my birthday party! Here's some candy and maybe a few fun girly trinkets". Not even two steps outside the party I would dig into the goody bag. Eat the candy and play with whatever trinket was given (maybe stick-on earrings - those were the best!)
Since my childhood I haven't changed much. I purged the closet, traded some clothes at Crossroads and immediately wore the new dress.
My day was filled with two things - work and a backyard dinner party at our home. The new dress turned out to be perfect for both!
The New Dress - WORK
I paired the dress with this with tank, peep toe black heels and a "Carrie Bradshaw Bun" to make it a little more "work conservative".
The New Dress - PARTY HOSTESS
To change the dress up and make it a little more festive I layered it over this pinstriped button down and tied the blues and greens together with the belt and blue shoes.
Now its time to move on to the other new dress... mmmm... what to wear it with?
