I buy a lot of random dresses. I’m not going to lie to you. Most of these dresses are for occasions that don’t exist or haven’t been planned. This dress I had my eye on since December in the cutest boutique, Apricot Lane, nearby. It had a hefty price tag for a dress that had no plans, so I held off until there was one left in my size in February ON SALE. Cue the hallelujah chorus. It sat in my closet with tags on because I knew it’d be my birthday dress. It’s quintessentially me. Check the color and the back. I wore my hair in a messy chignon to really show off the amazing pearl detailing. Plus paired with the nude pumps, it makes my legs look so long and I’m only 5’3″. I don’t know when I’ll wear this again, but it’s one of those really special dresses that you just want to wear everyday. Did I just get sentimental about a dress? Yep, I did.
