It was time for one of my favorite weekly traditions… cocktails and a multi-course meal with one of my closest friends.  I always dress up for my friends {I think it shows them the kind of respect they deserve!} and a conservatively cut, yet wildly printed maxi dress is the perfect option {mine is a vintage gift and i am madly in love with it}.  It’s feminine, yet classic.  It can be dressed up {accessories are a woman’s best friend} and layered necklaces are a great touch.  Throw on some comfortable {yet glitzy} sandals and you’re ready to drink, eat, and giggle long into the evening.
