Today's Everyday Fashion: Boutique Opening







































It would be an understatement to say that I'm always running late. I have the worst habit of looking at my clock and realizing I need to leave in 10 minutes, haven't done my makeup or picked out an outfit yet! Total fail. Thankfully I have the world's shortest makeup routine (5 minutes, time me!) and in these cases I throw on a dress like this one with some simple shoes and accessories and it's an instant outfit. That's how I wound up wearing this on Thursday night for the opening of Charyli in Winter Park, which I attended for my VISIT FLORIDA gig. (Full story and more pics will be posted on my VF Facebook page tomorrow!) I was kind of on the fence about this dress at first, and maybe it's just because I'm a Leo, but I'm totally lovin' it now. It's comfy and I love the shape. What would you wear to a boutique opening? How do you get dressed in a pinch?
