A Dress that Calls for a Celebration!

This week I celebrated my birthday and while the actual day of my birthday didn't feel much like a celebration because I was at work, at least I was able to celebrate somewhat properly the weekend before! (To be fair, my husband did cook me a lovely dinner on my actual birthday!) The weekend celebration of my birthday included trying a new restaurant in town, finding this lovely park that features some gorgeous tiles, and then seeing a play afterwards. For this celebration, I wore this new striped maxi dress because it just feels like the type of thing one might wear to celebrate a birthday or any fun occasion!

Although this dress may appear to be more formal, it can definitely be dressed down a bit for a more casual look. The dress originally came with a wide blue belt that I ditched because it made the dress look more casual, however, I'd definitely add it for a less formal occasion. Also, if I were going the casual route with this dress, I might also add a denim jacket (because that's basically my solution for making anything casual!) and maybe even swap out the gold sandals for some espadrilles or even some white sneakers.  So, all in all, it's a pretty colorful and versatile dress! Also, in case you were wondering, the dinner and the show were great, so it was the perfect dress for the perfect evening!
