Cinco De Mayo

5 May

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Mexican food is my favorite fare and I could eat it every night. Margaritas are my favorite drink and I could drink them every night. Couple that with my favorite pastime, eating/drinking with friends and out comes a fantastic day, Cinco de Mayo. For the past four years I have spent this day in a sundress, skipping class, and day drinking with all the besties. This year I have to adjust my plans since I am now in the post-grad life. After work today I plan on going to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants with my girlfriends, eating some delicious grub, and drinking some salty margaritas.

I couldn’t help but day-dream about a perfect Cinco de Mayo outfit. The outfit I have chosen is far from my comfort zone but hey, it’s just a day-dream. The dress is amazing and beautiful and perfect in my eyes for this festive day. I chose simple accessories so all eyes would be on this fabulous pinata-esque dress.
