Dinner With Friends

Prior to my departure and Christmas, I planned a dinner with friends to catch up since everyone has been so busy with work or school. Again, since I was traveling it was nice to reunite before the new year.


Love the decor of the restaurant: classy and chic!



Nice restaurant and great food!


Accessories: Michael Kors watch, Forever21 ring, Macys/Bar II bracelets


Currently blogging from Lagos, Nigeria–it is ridiculously warm. I am still trying to adjust to the 6 hours time difference. As I blog, it is currently 1am  3am here and I have to be up pretty early because I have a flight to the East coast to see family, friends, and for a wedding.


I was having second thoughts about this dress, but after some adjusting and convincing from my friend B and hubby, I decided to “work” it — love Aqua clothes 🙂



With friends…





Aqua By jadore-fashion

Outfit: Dress by Aqua; shoes: Christian Louboutins; Clutch: H&M

Hope everyone started their week off great! 

Are you ready for New Year? Any New Year’s resolutions?
