I love your outfit-you look GORGEOUS! I was just going to say that the polka dots remind me of "birthday". This really is such an elegant and fun outfit to celebrate another year in. I hope you have a fabulous day! :)

I just picked up a nearly identical gold sparkle belt from Target and I can't wait to wear it.

BTW-Your hair is gorgeous. Mine is similar color and length. I'd love to know how you get such soft and natural waves. Do you have a tutorial on the blog that perhaps I may have missed?

Cheers!
Karla
