There's nothing better than starting a new week feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after a weekend of fun and relaxation. The past few days were chock-full of birthday parties, laughter, food, and embarrassing photos. On Saturday, I enjoyed a giant Chinese feast for a friend's birthday, after which we hung out at a hooka lounge for the rest of the night. The highlights of the experience were beating my tablemates at "Big 2" (the card game) and watching this beautiful belly dancer shimmy her way around the room.
For the party, I initially wore this sheer-ish crop top from H&M and these silver high-waisted shorts; however, soon after putting on the outfit, I realized that I would never survive the huge dinner in such tight shorts! I made a smart decision and changed to a pair of print harem pants from Topshop instead (which will be featured in my next outfit post). As a result, I was comfortable and stylin' for the entire night-- I'm definitely not one to entirely sacrifice comfort for fashion!
