This was my outfit last night to go to a play with my best friend.
Thought these car photos would be cool. Too bad we were in a under ground parking lot and in a very tight spot to get a good angle...
This dress is new but was bought months ago. It is very light weight and could look dressy or very casual depending on how you style it.
This was at a spot we stopped for happy hour and appetizers before the play:
I added blue and silver accessories for a punch of color:
The ornate bracelet was one of the gifts my husband had brought from his business trip to India. I layered it with my other 3 bangle set and it went so nicely together.
The soft cardigan is the same one I wore the other day. Adding black accessories or white would have been too predictable for this outfit. Going with cream was just the tad of unusual I was going for...
These wedges are super cool and comfy but my got are they unstable to walk in. I almost sprained my ankle twice last night!
Dress - Forever 21
Cardigan - Ruche.com

LAST NIGHT: So, at first I was doing great getting ready myself and the kids and their swim bag etc... Then all hell broke loose when my son announced 'THERE IS A HUGE MESS'! My daughter is in this horrible stage of not potty trained but also not wanting to wear pull-ups (or diapers). So she had pooped in her pull-up then decided to take it off and got it all over herself and was crying. Of course this had to happen on my son's white carpeted room! I was sweating like crazy trying to give her a bath (before swim class!) washing the night gown, disposing the diaper, and cleanning up the carpet.
Nothing like wearing a silky dress and putting on make-up and then cleanning up poop! The thought that I would be sipping a cocktail and chatting with my friend in total bliss in an hour was what kept me going.
I was the dressiest person at the pool even though I wore flip flops and ditched all the bracelets for now.
My husband was great and showed up even earlier so I could leave right away to meet my friend.
We had a nice happy hour outdoors and made it just in time (actually a bit late) to the play.
The play was called 'Peer Gynt' It was quite an odd story but very good acting.
She had gotten these tickets at 50% off so that part was great.
Here is my best friend at the happy hour spot:
