Worn Dress: Urban Outfitters, open cardigan (similar) & belt (similar): Banana Republic, grey tights: Spanx via Nordstrom, booties: H&M.

Details Last weekend I made the trek back to my hometown to visit my dearest, oldest friend Suzy and her baby bump for her baby shower.  I had a fabulous time seeing here and talking about how exciting it will be once her little one arrives.  At the end of the trip we made the realization that the next time I see her she will have a baby and it will be a much different trip!  I truly can’t wait and couldn’t be happier for her.  Ahhhh, babies.

For my thirtieth and final outfit I wanted to dress up a bit for the party. I opted for this little UO dress, which is no longer available online, so my apologies!  I paired it with all neutrals including this tan open cardigan, brown belt and booties, and grey tights. Overall I thought that the mix of neutrals played well together and let the unique color and pattern of the dress take center stage. I’ve always wanted to belt this cardigan to make it appear shorter and this was my first attempt. I think it was a nice effect and makes this cardigan more versatile for other outfits.

Apologies for the first photo since it came out a bit blurry in the evening light. The weekend was so fun and I’m so glad I was able to make the trip for this special event.

My pal Suzy and me.  Love her.

The massive haul of baby gifts…this isn’t even all of it!

Suzy’s pals and her Mama did a great job of putting together a lovely lunch and party to celebrate Suzy.

We played a few games including one where we had to memorize items on a tray.  It’s clear I don’t really know much about baby stuff.

Yay for a great weekend!
