Outfit August, day 16: birthday party extravaganza! (picture-heavy)

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! 😀 I celebrated over the weekend with my traditional combination of beach-going, dinner, and an evening party. I’m putting the pictures a bit out of order (dinner, beach, then party) because this amazing dress needs to be at the beginning of the post.
