I love writing blog posts on Thursdays because I realize how close we are to the weekend. Sometimes, I sit at my desk and try to plan out what plans I will fix up for myself. Having said that, I figured out on Monday, yes Monday, that tomorrow night I am cooking a small BBQ. The weather has been incredible and therefore a rooftop BBQ and movie night sounds absolutely delightful.

Can we talk about this floral and lace dress for just a second?

What’s not to love about floral and lace, and not to mention it definitely twirls! If you know me by know, I love anything that allows me to twirl like a little girl. My mom and dad know if the dress twirls, the dress is mine. Lately, I have been searching for day-to-night dresses. I find it hard to find quality dresses, and by quality I mean clothing you can wear at least more than once knowing it will hold. This floral and lace dress has been a perfect day-to-night dress and is affordable ($136). I also love this floral dress ($158), this one ($21), this one ($60 after sale) and this one (on sale for $44).  By day, pair this dress with a cute pair of low heels (how cute are these?) and by night dress them up with a pair of pumps. It’s the perfect dress for any occasion or if you feel like taking date night up a little, surprise him with this floral and lace number.
