Doesn’t this dress just scream:  FALL IS HERE!?

Gawd!!  I fell in love with this on the hangers at Tatyana Boutique – before they closed their Toronto location – which means up to 80% discounts on all their gorgeous frocks.

So I picked up this bad boy…and have been patiently waiting for my birthday to wear it. 🙂

Not like I ever need an excuse to treat myself to a new frock …teeheee 😛 ….

But if you’ve got a looming birthday on the horizon – that is an EXCELLENT excuse to treat = a new outfit!

At the time of purchasing this dress, I didn’t really have any plans to celebrate my birthday.  All I knew was that this dress needed to be mine.

Just look at the fun and sassy lace embellishment around the entire neckline ….. ❤

This dress came with a sweet little deep green ribbon belt…. which I chose to wear in my hair instead of around my waist.

Now Toronto’s still pretty lucky with the weather we’ve been getting.  So for true birthday purposes wearing this dress solo was perfect!!!

But with Fall officially here now, a girl’s gotta come up with ideas to keep cute + warm.

Here’s my plans for this dress into cooler temperatures….until the snow hits, that is:

What I Did

September babies are the best!!! Turns out several of my peeps are fellow September babies.

So what better way to celebrate ALL of their birthdays than by one big ol’ party doing all the things we each love:

Day Drinking – Patio Potlucking – BBQ’ing – Cake Eating – Dancing – Pole’ing – Hot Tubbing too!!!

Birthday OOTD

Sooooo I recently celebrated yet another birthday 🙂

This year it fell on a FriYAY!  Which meant, this chick wasn’t gonna stay at home…and I definitely wasn’t gonna cook for myself. 354930d80c4d86043826cca1d0968a74

AND of course,  I needed a new birthday outfit.  Here’s what I came up with:

It wasn’t a milestone birthday or anything.  Plus its tough trying to round-up the troops after a long work-week to celebrate on a Friday night.

So the plans were simple Triple-D:  Dinner – Dessert – Dancing! 🙂

Which meant, I wanted to keep my new bday outfit simple too:

BOTH the Jacket and Floral dress were from Old Navy! Booties are last season from Reitmans.
This was a fairly cool evening, so the sweatshirt material of this jacket was just enough warmth.  And with minimal accessories with hair pulled back – it would be easy to dance in too!

This dress was super discounted. I really liked the key-hole button up in the back. And it had an interesting dropped waist situation too.  I belted it to help break up the floral pattern a bit.  Plus, it ties in nicely with my brown booties.

 Special Thanks to the handsome owners of NighOwl Toronto who treated the entire table to a round of free drinks … and this birthday girl to post-dinner libations too –> SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS! 😉

AND to the lovelies of Bean & Baker Malt Shop who stayed open extra late for this rowdy gaggle of hooligans I call friends.  And for the extra special cake surprise – it was DELICIOUS!!!

AND to Lindy Hop Revolution for all the ‘birthday girl’ paraphernalia, glow sticks, wine and BIRTHDAY JAM. 😛

And to all of my friends who showed up to dinner – stayed for ice cream – continued on to swing dancing – and karaoke/car-eokee late night.  You guys are the greatest!  And sure know how to make this girl feel special and loved!   xo

Thanks for reading friends!  Until next time…
