I have had the nicest birthday week ever and it's not over yet. The sweet people that I call my friends and family have loved on me so much this week that it's almost overwhelming. I did a recap of the earlier end of the week in this post. On Wednesday, my dad picked me up and we spent the afternoon together. We grabbed lunch and then I dragged him to the mall. He's a good sport. Yesterday morning, Tony had to leave early, but he woke me up with roses and a cupcake with a lit candle and sang me happy birthday before he left. My mom and I had lunch at a thai restaurant that I love and then I finished out the afternoon with a few errands (you know adult stuff). Last night, Tony's mom put on the sweetest dinner for me with my favorite Arabic dish and we had cake and spent time with them and Tony's brother and his family. It has just been such a blessed week and my heart is so full. Today I am helping my bestie furnish her first home (super exciting!) and tomorrow Tony and I are going on a really exciting date night. More on all of that Monday.  

Plaid is everywhere these days, but my absolute favorite is when I can find plaid shirt dresses! I love the dark and light mint this plaid has going on and how it is complemented by pink and black. It is not a combo you see very often but it totally works! Hands down, my favorite thing about this dress is that it has a little tie around the waist. As much as I love a good shirt dress, they tend to make me look pretty boxy, so this is the perfect way to fix that. This dress is a sheer woven polyester and it comes with a slip that is just shy of the length of the dress. I hate when a slip comes with a dress and it is way shorter. It doesn't make any sense. This one is the perfect length. I have it paired with these super comfortable Converse/Nike hybrids and my every day dainty gold jewelry. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!!
