Sunday Night Dinner

Happy Spring, ladies!

Today is my friend Mackenzie's birthday and we are going to celebrate with dinner on the deck at Duke's this lovely evening.

I'm a little old-fashioned in that I like to dress up when I go out to eat.  Aw heck I use any excuse I can to dress up.  However I am biking to the restaurant which could make wearing heels interesting...better put a spare pair of flats in my basket.

My ride for the evening

One piece of advice I have for you ladies today: If you are going to splurge on an item of clothing, make it a classic that is versatile and fits you perfectly.  For me this piece was my black blazer from LOFT.  It cost almost $50, and for a thrifter like me that is painful.  However, this looks professional at work and can go with jeans or a casual dress over the weekend.  It has more than paid for itself with the amount of times I have worn it.  There are a few pieces like this that every woman should have and if you need to spend a little extra for just the right cut or quality, do it.  

Blazer - LOFT $48

Scalloped Shorts: H&M, $16  Belt: Forever 21, set of 3 $12
Shoes: Forever 21, $20

Feathered Earrings:  Forever 21, $6.50

Nail Polish: H&M, 3.50

Also, I wanted to share with you two of my secret weapons from the makeup bag:  Bronzer and Highlighter.  The Bronzer is by Hoola and the highlighter is Urban Decay in "Sin".  Both from Ulta, and I use them for HAC (highlighting and contouring).  To learn more about how to do HAC, check out this video tutorial via maskara.

 Have a great day friends!  Til next time,
