My LA Best Friend

Outfit Details:
Dress: Plum
Sandals: Payless
Ring: RW&Co
Earrings: ShopRuche

I'm back from LA! I shopped Rodeo Drive*, became friends with a celebrity** and ate fresh mangos on the beach.

I wore this Plum dress while we shopped around and it was perfect for the LA weather. How adorable is the cut out in the back? I had to make sure I threw some sunblock on my back so I didn't get a weird triangle back tan though.

I really had such an amazing four days with these ladies. They've been friends with the bride since elementary and high school and before this trip I had only met them once! Traveling with a group of girls you don't know very well can be a recipe for disaster but I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. They were so welcoming and I had the best time. I can't tell you the last time I laughed as hard as I did this weekend!

* "Shopped Rodeo Drive"- Translation - stared into Prada drooling.

** "Became friends with a celebrity" - Translation - Nick Simmons cut in front of me in line at Starbucks and I stood next to him waiting for my drink. I'm pretty sure when he said "oh, were you in line?" he was really saying "you're my new best friend". and when I replied "it's okay, go ahead" I was really saying "awesome, any chance you are friends with Justin Timberlake?"


  1. Sounds like you guys are best friends for sure now. That dress is super cute too!

    Shopping and Spreadsheets

  3. What a cute dress!! Love :)

  4. ooo, celebrity friends....sounds like a good time in LA!

  5. Aw, you look so pretty! I'm not usually one for cutouts but this one is so perfectly placed (you can still wear a regular undergarments!) and this dress is absolutely darling on you! I love it! So glad you had such a nice weekend! xo!

  6. That dress is GORGEOUS on you!

    I'm so glad you had such a great time!

  7. Very cute dress..and good thought on putting on the sunblock as to not get a weird tan!! Nick Simmons..huh!? I'm hosting a giveaway for a beautiful pair of pearl earrings, be sure to stop by and enter!! Have a great day!

  8. That dress is the CUTEST. I got all slap-happy typing that and all sorts of windows started popping up on my monitor..whoops. Anyway I'm super glad you had a nice laughing time in LA, trying not to be a little jealous..

  9. It sounds like you had a good time in LA! I don't blame you for drooling over the Prada.

  10. Love the back of that dress! Your hair is lookin' super fly as well! :)

  11. Hahaha. I think I've befriended some celebrities the same way you did!

    And that definitely is a darling dress.

    Okay, and I also admit that I shopped similarly in Vegas ;)

  12. Of course Nick Simmons meant to say that you were his new best friend- although if it had been Justin Timberlake saying that, it would have been even better :) Your dress is adorable. I'm completely swooning over the cutout in the back!

  13. What a cute dress! I love the back. I would have dropped kicked Nick Simmons if he cut in front of me. Actually no I wouldn't, I couldn't, he's way taller than me ; )

  14. Oooh I have that dress in black and white, LOVE it for summer weather. And considering we don't have any, it's fitting that you wore it in LA. Love your Nick Simmons story, he's so adorable!

  15. That dress looks fantastic on you! I adore your blog by the way, following you now!
