Parish Dinner and Outfit

IMG_8493mini

Recently I dined out with some girlfriends at a restaurant called Parish to celebrate a birthday. It is quite dark inside this historical space but fortunately we sat right by a large window. I appreciate amazing natural lighting too much to not have taken advantage of it! Everything looks mouth-wateringly delicious doesn’t it?? :)

I rarely crave fried chicken (ironic since i’m down here in the south) but seriously if you order anything from here–get the fried chicken! It has the right amount of breading and crisp with a light sweetness that just leaves you wanting more!

Onto the outfit! I knew the restaurant had more of a casual yet trendy ambience so I decided to dress up my day wear a little for our girls’ evening out. I switched out my day bag for this cute little Forever 21 chevron clutch. Then I threw on my Zara red sandal heels (still loving these too much) and a punch-y lip color. All quick little changes were made along with some quick photos taken by my sister 10-15 minutes right before reservation time! :)

I’ve loved this floral romper since last summer and i’m still wearing it and styling it in different ways. It was really warm out that day but I wanted an extra cover up and layering piece. The light chambray vest has been perfect over tanks and such and suits my more casual style.

Spring Pastels & Floral

Florals, pastels, and just girly colors in general never fail to make me feel a bit more feminine. I was inspired by the blooming flowers and beautiful oncoming warm Spring weather that day.

I even threw on my Smiley earrings because beautiful weather and sunshine just makes me so happy! :)
