My plans of a low-key weekend were hijacked, and I couldn't have been happier. After a lazy Saturday morning, as I was making my way to the gym, a friend phoned with an invitation to a swanky Azalea Festival Event. Never one to pass up an opportunity to play dress-up, and in desperate need of some girl time, I wholeheartedly accepted. 5 miles, several hours, and a mani/pedi later, I was headed down 17 South. Life is funny like that. 

Here's to spur-of-the-moment plans, impromptu dinner parties, unforeseen surprises, and chance encounters. Because we never truly know what is waiting just around the corner...
Addendum: Here's to being prepared, too. Just in case. Every girl should have a fabulous evening gown tucked away in her closet, should an occasion arise. Black is classic, but this fun little number by Leifsdottir has me wishing the dress code for life were Black Tie. Long and flowy with a dramatic slit up the front, it was perfect for dancing the night away. I paired it with black, strappy Madden Girl heels and my favorite Kate Spade bag. Since the dress is such a statement, I kept makeup and jewelry simple and stuck with my favorite color for both: gold. 
Thank you Carrie for inviting me, I had a ball!
And thanks Taylor for being the best chauffeur around!
