Twenty Two

My 22nd birthday party was last Sunday evening. We were planning on going to Hub 51 in River North, but it wasn’t the right crowd. We ended up going to The Lion’s Head on Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park instead. (BTW- Thank you to everyone who came! I had a blast!)

I purchased this dress last August figuring I would wear it sometime last fall, but I never did so I pulled it out for my birthday dress this year! I love the olive green color and the ruffles make the dress very fun!

I realized I forgot to take outfit pictures before we went out so Ellen and I went outside to take some at one point throughout the night. She was cracking me up the entire time so there were LOTS of candid laughing shots. 🙂
