I apologize for not posting sooner. Last week I jetted off to the Caribbean (where I still am and will be for the next couple of weeks) for my birthday. These pics are from Saturday which was my actual birthday. For those of you that don't know, i'm from a small Caribbean island located in the the British Virgin Islands (also known as the BVI). The BVI consists of 4 main islands and over 50 other small islands and cays. I grew up on the larger island of Tortola. I decided to spend my birthday with friends on one of the neighboring islands called Virgin Gorda (a must visit if you ever travel to this end of the world). My hun (who takes my blog pics) isn't traveling with me *sad face* so it'll be a bit hard to get pics of my trip but I was lucky enough to have my close friend and my sis take a few snaps of me. How could they say no to the birthday girl?!! LOL. Just kidding, thanks ladies. Love you!
About this gorgeous dress; I bought it from Zara at the beginning of Spring and couldn't wait to wear it. I knew my birthday would be the perfect occasion since I was traveling to a tropical setting. The colors went beautifully with my surroundings. I would say it's the perfect 'island dress' or summer dress. I didn't want to take it off. Despite my hesitation I changed into a cute little fluorescent peplum dress also purchased from Zara for a LONG night of partying with my sisters. I didn't get pics but I had such a blast. I was lucky enough to have my birthday fall on a holiday weekend so there were lots of things to do here. My sisters and I partied on Saturday night until 4 in the morning. The crazy thing about that is the club was just really getting started when we left but we had danced the entire night in heels. When the legs say no more there is no fighting that....lol. I seriously need to find the perfect dancing shoes. For me the perfect dancing shoes is any that I can dance in for more than 5 hours. My JC's come pretty close but there was no way I was traveling with those babies. The took up the space of 3 pairs of my other shoes. With 50lb weight limits on bags it just wasn't happening. Although I do miss them it's just too hot here for boots. Now I must stop myself from babbling =).
