I hope you had a great weekend!  I had a busy but fun weekend with dinner with friends and the Southern Blog Society Conference coffee talk on Saturday where I was able to finally meet some of the wonderful ladies behind some of the blogs that I love.  The speakers were also very informative and I learned a lot!  You can see what I wore here.

As much as I would love to have an unlimited shopping budget, I don't, so I'm a big fan of remixing pieces in my closet.  I've worn this skirt on the blog when it was colder (here) as I couldn't wait for summer to wear it!  Now that it is warmer, I was excited to wear it again.  Since it is a very sexy skirt, I wanted to tone it down a little with one of my trusty t-shirts.  Of course, I had to add my statement necklace and bracelets, but it was perfect for dinner and drinks!
