Put A Lil Color In It

Hiiiii. I know, I know. I've been a tad MIA lately. That's only because I have finally started to have a social life in Richmond. It's so bad (well actually good) that I only made it to the gym twice last week! My week consisted of working late Wednesday, going to see The Vow Thursday, going to dinner/drinks with my coworkers Friday, heading to the Virginia Wine Expo Saturday & then spending some quality time with SOS. Busy, busy, busy. To say the least, last week was tons of fun (minus that work part) & hopefully this week will be just as awesome. Mostly, I hope I make it to the gym.

Anyway, I decided to be as colorful as possible for the dinner Friday night. Helllllooo citrine blouse & royal skinnies. I initially thought the color was a little much, but it the outfit turned out quite well.

The wine expo was soooo much fun. I got to hangout with some girlfriends I hadn't seen in a while & made some new friends. Below is a pic of all our purchases for the day. Yes, we bought a lot of wine. I only walked away with four bottles & the most amazing wine glass ever. Seriously, it says "Hokie Hottie." Buying it was a no brainer!!

Also, I've ditched my dark vampish nail polish for turquoise. I'm starting to really like color. I even switched from my usual OPI to Essie & I may be in love with it.

Welllll, I need to get back to reality & get some things done... Just in case I have another insanely busy week.

Blouse & Pants: Old Navy
Blazer: Charlotte Russe
Pumps: Sam & Libby
Purse: Louis Vuitton
Watch: Michael Kors

Can you guess which coworker asked me if David Kors was my favorite designer?! lol (@Havana 59)

My lovely purchases from the expo. Yes, one's already opened.

5 girls.. We did a little damage.
Seche Vite & Essie Go Overboard
Also, my birthday is next month. I'm debating whether or not to try Rent the Runway. Have any of you used it? Should I rent an Herve Leger dress for my birthday pressie?!
