Birthday dress!

I actually went out for lunch with friends for my birthday!!  Three of my work friends (we don't really do anything outside of work except for lunch a couple times a year) took me out today.  Since I was coming from home, and not the office, I decided to wear a fun dress that I've been wanting to wear for a while.  But it is a tank-style dress, it is still a little cooler here, and this was still a bunch of people who see me at the office, so I put a simple cardigan over it.  Here's the outfit:
I'm so glad I finally wore this dress!  The detailing on this dress is amazing.  That geometric pattern is created by sewing together individual pieces of fabric - it's not a print!  Hopefully now that I've worn it once, I'll wear it more.  But I've found the main disadvantage of more expensive dresses is that I worry about getting them messed up if I wear them with the kids around.  I probably shouldn't - they're not exactly in the spitting-up stage anymore! - but I do.  Anyway, I'll have to get over that mental block, but one step at a time.  :)

I wanted to keep the dress on forever, but since my afternoon will mostly be running errands (a birthday treat over doing actual work :) ), it didn't seem quite right.  So I changed into a more casual dress with ballet flats instead.
