Can you tell by my giant smile how excited I was for my first girl’s night out since having Zain? I can’t believe a month and a half passed me by so quickly but it was such a nice treat to get out with my girlfriends. I have had so many wonderful visitors and been able to get out way more than I thought I would but hadn’t been able to get a girl’s night on the books with my friends.

Finally, when Jess birthday rolled around and everyone was finally in town for once we scheduled it right away. Blair came over in the afternoon to visit me and Zain a little earlier in the day and we finally shot pictures together again! If you don’t know, Blair and I generally always shoot each other unless something comes up and with me having Zain and her traveling so much we had missed it! It felt so great to get out with her and it’s so sweet to see her growing belly. If you haven’t seen, she shared the gender on her blog recently and I can’t wait to be a ‘boy mom’ with her!

After hanging around for a bit, we got ready and walked up to Big Star to meet Jess and Kelly. Since the wait was hours as usual we popped over to Dove’s Luncheonette and had some rosé while we waited. It was so awesome catching up with them and enjoying some delicious tacos and guacamole on the Big Star outdoor patio. 

Fun fact: Kelly hates cilantro and Mexican food in general but somehow we always end up at Mexican restaurants. I swear we aren’t bad friends, ha! Moral of the story, Kelly orders the quesadillas and since she didn’t finish hers Blair and I tried it and it was the most delicious thing I’ve had there. So, if you find yourself there – order a quesadilla!

I decided to throw on this denim dress I just picked up from Shopbop and my new wrap sandals! I loved that this dress was an easy shape, had the fun lace up detailing and pockets!!! It is so comfy and runs a little big so I would order true to size for that oversized fit. I got so many compliments on my flats and the leather is so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them non stop since and they go with just about everything. 

I find myself being drawn to denim dresses so often because they are easy to dress up or down and always seem to be flattering. I rounded up 10 of my current favorites below and if you have any favorites, let me know!
