     On Friday night, I finally got to have my belated Valentines celebration!! On February 14th, I was supposed to have a dinner and a movie with two of my fellow single girlfriends from my former college. But due to all of that crazy snow that Charlotte got hit with, our plans had to be postponed a weekend. 

     The plans were well worth the wait!! I will blog more about that tomorrow, but one of the highlights of the evening was a little photoshoot on top of the Target Metropolitan parking deck! The Target closest to Uptown Charlotte has a parking deck with amazing views of the Queens City. We went up there in the early evening, and the light was absolutely stunning!

     This beautiful dress that I'm wearing was sent to me by DressLily. They have a large online store that sells tons of reasonably priced (and very cute!) apparel. They are based internationally, so it did take me a couple of extra weeks to receive this item. (I will be honest and say that there were a few days that I doubted that it would ever arrive.) But- sure enough my dress did show up, and I was very pleased with it once it arrived! This dress is simple and chic enough on its own, but it's also the perfect type of dress to be dressed up or dressed down. Since it's a solid deep navy color, the possibilities to accessorize it are endless! For this look, I decided to go with some bright bracelets and large statement earrings, and then a classic pair of nude pumps. And I think that this adorable clutch purse that I got on my trip to the UK was just the icing on the cake! Thanks again to DressLily for sending me this beautiful dress! 

     On a different note, it's just two days until my friend Shara arrives from Maine! And just eight days until I leave with my dad for the Dominican Republic. Spring Break is coming way too quickly! I just have to get through these last few days of school. ;-)
