Birthdays & Pretty Party Dresses

{CARDIGAN: CALVIN KLIEN, DRESS: MODCLOTH, BELT: VINTAGE, TIGHTS + SHOES: JOE FRESH}

I’ve been on a down-time binge this week, but alas, all good things must end. I had to forego the top knot & comfy clothes, and get dressed for my girlfriend’s birthday party. Happy Birthday, Tracey! However, this is a good thing because my closet has been giving me the evil eye all week. But “closet's” mood did improve dramatically, once I pulled out this little number -thank goodness!

I happily wore my new ModCloth dress over the weekend and I'm absolutely smitten with this silhouette. I decided to pair it with my skinny vintage belt, which is a nice change from my usual wide go-to belt. And I’m love, loving dresses lately; they are easy to re-mix and appropriate for all seasons -it’s a definite win-win in my fashion books! I'm also still enjoying "tights weather" in my hemisphere, and decided to wear my purple ones, to shake it up.

I also attended my first blogger meet-up this past weekend. Yay! I met some pretty terrific gals; we gabbed blogs and life. And of course I took pictures, which I can’t wait to share with you guys. xx veronika
