What I Wore + Thank You!

Hi Friends and Happy Friday Eve! It's hard to believe my birthday has come and gone but it was fabulous, nonetheless...and the party isn't over! I plan on celebrating right on through the end of the month but, I promise this will be my last post about my birthday! I have to say, all this celebrating hasn't allowed much time for blogging so, today I thought I would bring you an outfit post featuring what I wore on my birthday.

I saw this dress at Fab'rik and had to snap it up. I love the cut and the color was perfect. Not to mention, I adore flutter sleeves. So sweet and feminine. I just couldn't resist them! They also had this dress in black and I may or may not have purchased one of each. (Stay tuned...)

I planned on pairing this dress with a long tiered necklace however, about an hour before we left for dinner, I checked my mailbox only to find a gorgeous birthday surprise! My blog friend, Andrea, sent me a birthday care package all the way from Texas and inside was the sweetest card and this beautiful necklace! I thought it was the perfect contrasting piece for my green dress. I have no accessories in this color...until now...and look forward to pairing it with other outfits in my closet. Yay!

Here's my outfit and accessories...

I wore my favorite MK nude sandals, a cuff bracelet and subtle earrings, both from Francesca's, along with my new necklace, also from Francesca's. What do you think? Do you like the contrasting necklace with the green dress?

We went to dinner at one of our favorite places right around the corner. I had the seafood entree which was PEI Mussels in a ginger beer broth, giving them a really unique flavor. I know you aren't surprised that I ordered the mussels! I can't even begin to tell you how good they were! Mmmmmmm...

For dessert we shared a Rocky Road Whoopie Pie. I didn't capture a picture but I can tell you it was the perfect birthday dessert!

It was a lovely birthday indeed and I am so thankful for all of your blog comments/mentions, Facebook shoutouts and sweet emails wishing me a Happy Birthday. It means the world to me and I can't thank you enough! Cheers to another year of blessings, surprises and lots of love! XOXO! :)
