It's My Party And I'll Dress Up If I Want To

{Necklace, Bracelet, Dress - F21; Shoes - Colin Stuart}

Like I said before here, I will use any excuse to dress up, but I am pretty sure my birthday would be considered a good excuse!  We kept it pretty low key yesterday, with a romantic enchilada dinner for two and delicious cupcakes from Rae's.  However, since I took the liberty of extending my birthday from just the 11th, to the whole month of July, there is still much more celebrating to come; especially since our anniversary is this month as well!  So here I am, all dressed up as queen of the day and lovin' every minute of it!  I realized when scouring my closet for a birthday suit, how few fancy-shmancy dresses I have.  I have tons of casual, easy dresses and a few on the more sophisticated side, but none that really scream, I'm here and I'm ready to party like it's nobody's business.  So that is now my mission for the summer; find great party dresses for Sherry.  But rest assured, once I find these dresses, they will not be reserved just for parties; oh no, any dress fabulous enough for a party must be seen and not stored!  They will definitely be making appearances at grocery stores, gas stations and fast food restaurants.  It is always better to be overdressed than underdressed anyway, right?!

PS  Thank you all so much for your amazingly sweet birthday wishes yesterday!  I appreciate every single one of them so much!
