Dressed to Dine

Last night some wonderful friends of mine had me and Kelsey over for a dinner party. They are making a tradition of it! Margaret (you should probably check out her blog Hello, Cherie) made some delicious pizzas for us, and Ryan put together a great Caesar salad. I don't even know what all was on the pizzas, I just know they were full of flavor and love! We enjoyed a lot of laughs, great conversation, and a wonderful Beach Boys station on Pandora. I feel so lucky to have such great friends.

While the pizza was baking, we spent a little time out in the sweltering humidity getting some pictures. Margaret is my outfit photo buddy, but we never get photos with both of us in them, so I was really glad we were able to do that. Since it was a party and all, I wanted to wear my new skirt that I got at Forever 21. I never shop there anymore because it's so overwhelming, but I did manage to find a couple of things I loved. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite frumpy sweaters and some thrifted sandals. I have to address these shoes real quick. I found them at Goodwill for only $5. I very rarely find shoes that I like at thrift stores, especially in my size. Guess what else? They are Frye! I have always wanted a pair of Frye boots, but they are way out of my price range, so these sandals have satisfied my desire.

sweater, sandals- Goodwill
skirt- F21
necklace- Urban Outfitters (old)
bag- vintage from Starr Crow (more on that later)

And here we are together, out of focus because self-timer is a butt. I really love these people. I think having good friends close by is so important to keep my sanity. I was afraid Margaret was going to move away from me, and she still very well could, but for now I'm overjoyed that she is staying put. I'm looking forward to many more dining experiences and maybe some photo projects together (hint hint).

Thanks for the great dinner, friends!
