Happy Friday!! It’s summer time – if not by weather or even by the calendar, at least by mentality. Summer time at the beach means dressing up cute, going dancing, and showing off that incredible tan!

In the absence of a tan (my lot in life), two out of three isn’t so bad.  In celebration of a friend’s birthday last Friday, I headed out to my beloved honky-tonk.  While I wasn’t feeling the boots, I couldn’t go too dressy without looking very out of place.  So, I opted for some strappy heels (a Ross find – Nine West, I think?) made more casual by pairing them with shorts and a wide tan belt.  My top is actually a dress from Forever 21 (sorry for the blurry picture), but it was too short to wear by itself (you never know when you’re going to be dancing with a dipper) so by belting it, I could keep it in place at shirt length.  I completed the look with a bright green clutch, some simple dangly earrings, and bracelets that tied everything together. And judging by the number of men who asked me to dance…I’d say I pulled it all off pretty well. 🙂

Have a great weekend, everyone!
