"...And it's not even my birthday!" --Rhianna

I wore this dress on my birthday when two of my friends and I went out to celebrate.

It went PERFECTLY with some strapy southwestern printed sandals I came across, {right on trend for the summer might I add}, that I decided fit the occasion.

We took pictures indoors. But unfortunately the lighting was awful and no matter how I edited, they could not be helped.

I was determined to take some pictures in this dress, but I was NOT going to traipse  about in heels on a Sunday afternoon only to go and do some schoolwork.

So I dressed it down with some flat sandals and a utility vest.

Just as I completed the look, I remembered this AWESOME clutch, which added a bit of pizzazz to the look with the animal print, a pop of blue and by pulling together the neutrals I chose.

It was soooo hot while I was shooting these photos so I eventually ditched my vest {only putting it back on when I was safe in an air-conditioned environment}.  I will Definitely be pulling this baby  out to wear again this summer.

Even if it’s not my birthday!
