What I Wore: Pocahontas

I am so sad that another great weekend has come to an end!
I swear the funner my weekends are, the more depressed I get when I have to start the work week. Speaking of fun, my weekend was one of the best I have had in awhile. It was birthday extravaganza. On Saturday my bestie turned 3-0 and her husband, mother in law and sister in law through her an incredible surprise party. Good friends and family, amazing food and open bar...let's just say that I had my dad pick me up (30 going on 18? Or Super smart? SMART...DUI check points are everywhere on holiday weekends. My dad really is the best!). On Sunday I had a friend in town so we went to lunch and then shopping before heading out to Newport Beach for another friend's party. Dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, getting to see my sissy and staying at an incredible villa was awesome. Monday included brunch overlooking the ocean and a BBQ with great friends. Now you can see why I am sad for it all to end!

I want to wish my BFF, Sarah, a very HAPPY Birthday! She is one of my biggest supporters and has been with me every step of the way. She was the person who really pushed me to start a Style Blog! I am lucky to have her on my side! Wishing you the most amazing and blessed year! Love you!

I wore this exact outfit on Saturday night and the skirt again on Sunday night after I switching up my top and shoes. I was called Pocahontas more than a few times due to the awesome, sequin tribal print skirt. I am in love with it! I first saw it on The Fashionable ESQ and went out immediately to find it! I wanted to play down the sequins to make them more wearable. A basic tee, grandpa cardi and sandals gave me the casual look I needed. I really like how this look came together.

How was your Memorial Weekend?
Do anything fun??

I've seen it around but had no clue it's from Express. Might have to try and hunt it down! Love how you paired it with a more casual top. Looking great as usual!! :)
