Blend on the Water

Happy Friday!  These pictures were taken exactly one week ago on a much needed outing with my coworkers.  We had dinner and drinks at a restaurant called Blend on the Water and had such a great time!  This dress was the perfect thing to wear for dinner by the water, don't you think?  And how amazing is that view?  Both day and night views were absolutely gorgeous - the pictures do it no justice!

I bought this dress last year and it is by far my most favorite purchase from Zara.  I love the artsy but not over the top feel that it has to it.  I actually bought it because it reminded me of an art piece my mother used to have back in the day.  I don't remember the original price but I do remember waiting and waiting until it went on sale for $20.  Twenty bucks.  For those of you that go shopping at Zara, you know that a dress like this will run for at least $60 so that was a major score.  And boy have I gotten my cost per wear!  I wore it last year for my friends birthday, this past April for a night out in Miami, and recently to dinner with my coworkers.  

I finished my look off with some sexy t-strap sandals and skipped the jewelry altogether so the focus was completely on my dress.  The white nail polish is also a nice contrast against the dark fall-like colors.  The dress looked just as good with a pair of navy and yellow sandals just in case you're in the mood to play with color and texture.  Chunky heels are always your best bet if you're not a stilettos kinda girl.  I'll post a picture of how I wore it last year on my Instagram so you can see.  :)

I hope you enjoyed todays post.  Don't forget to write your comments below telling me what you think.   Have a great day and always thank you for reading!
