Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all have had a great week! Does this sound wrong, that I am so glad that I did not get picked for jury duty? I was at the courthouse from 8:00-5:30 on Monday! I did get questioned by the plaintiff attorney around 4:00 after sitting all day and not eating. He told a story about his childhood, and I honestly felt like I was back in High School and not paying attention (if the truth is told, I was daydreaming because he was boring and I was tired and hungry). Of course, he picked me to ask what I thought about it. I had to tell him that I wasn’t paying attention (embarrassing!!!). I apparently was not a choice for a juror!!! Today I wanted to show you how I wore my velvet coat as a dress when I was in New York.

This gorgeous velvet dress is from ALC, and I had to have it because of the color. I have to admit when I saw it, I did think it was a trench coat. Since it was still warm in New York last month, I decided to wear it over this dress. I love the way it looks! When the weather gets cooler (if it ever does!), I will wear it as a dress with black tights and over jeans. The floral slip dress I am wearing underneath is a pretty dress, but I will need to wear a jacket over it, or a turtleneck under it. I added a cami underneath it because it was a little “vavavoom” sexy and my faux boobs are a bit ripply! All in all, I loved the outfit, and it was the perfect choice for the party we attended.

I had so much fun with my girl gang above. These girls make blogging so much fun for me. They understand and can empathize when you tagged the wrong person, your Instagram gets hacked, or whatever blogging problem comes your way. It’s so nice to be able to have fun with them but also to vent when I need to. Please check out their blogs too! From left to right, Debby- Fashionomics, Heather- So Heather, and Tiffany- Street Style Squad. I adore these girls!

I am so excited to have a friend (who I met at a wedding this summer) visiting me from Atlanta this weekend! She is a real “girl boss, ” and I can’t wait to have her to myself. I will share more about her soon. Hope you all have a great weekend! xx
