What I Wore: Drinks & Dinner in Laguna Beach

A “new” outfit for $70 does the trick

So I had all kinds of plans to splurge on a birthday outfit for Saturday night, but when it came down to it, I decided I’d rather buy a piece of furniture! Sad, after all that build up, right?

I did end up finding these super cute shorts on clearance at Urban Outfitters, so had no guilt about buying shorts at the tail end of summer for $20. Paired with a silk Joie top from last year, a JCrew chunky gold chain necklace from a friend, some (really) old fave KORS wedges and Tom Ford sunglasses, I was able to pull something together that was somewhat fitting for the night’s festivities. Since I had been wanting one of those blog-ified American Apparel leather pouches forever, I got one of those too in taupe so that I’ll get plenty of use out of it for the Fall. The end result…

The night ended up being a blast despite some major service issues at the restaurant — but a party of 16 can be a tad chaotic. Luckily, I have fantastic and adaptable friends!

And thank you all again for hanging with my guest bloggers last week in my absence. It was a nice break, but funny, I did feel kinda bad that I wasn’t contributing to all the fabulousness going around in blog-land last week. (I have problems, I know.)
