Hey there, and Happy Friday! I am ohhh so excited because after work today I am heading out to CT for a much needed weekend at my mom’s beach house! The forecast was looking like rain, and now we’re down to a measly 10% chance.  That’s what I’m talking about! We’re having a girls weekend with nothing on the agenda, and I cannot wait!

Anyway, on to today’s post.  When I saw this dress, I knew I had to have it.  It’s the perrrrfect end-of-summer dress for some al fresco dining.  For a dressier look, bring your hair up to a topknot to really let the dress shine (I intend to do this next time I wear it).

Weird face – hey, how are ya?

I should mention that this stunning floral dress and nude cage heels weigh in at a whopping $67.  That’s right, $67 for the whole dang outfit! Something about wearing silk makes me feel like a million bucks.  Totally Babe on a Budget approved!

Open-tie back makes this dress sexy, yet romantic.

How about that NYC sunset, though?
