Yesterday afternoon, I went on a quick shopping trip to see if I could find an outfit for a wedding reception I was attending in the evening! I had given my stylist the day off, so I had to do all the work myself! Just kidding, I would never give my stylist a day off! Haha, now I'm double kidding (woah, it's gettin' crazy up in here now), I don't have a stylist!
I decided about 2 hours before I was supposed to be at the reception that I just HAD to have something new to wear. Now, I was trying to be strategic and buy something that I could re-wear for both casual and work use, so I had my work cut out for me! I know, my brain is always thinkin'. In addition, I met my best friend, Michelle, at Aritzia so I could give her my opinion on a pair of bright blue pants she was interested in. I know, what you're thinking, this shopping trip had alot going on, and oh my did it! We also stopped in at Zara and let me tell you, did they have some cute stuff. My wallet started crying the moment we walked into the store, but don't fret, I managed to restrain myself and not purchase anything except for my T.Babaton sweater! My self-control is amazing. Doctor Phil has actually invited me onto his show to be a "self-control" counsellor.
I ended up purchasing a T.Babaton sweater from Aritzia. Now, I got the picture below off of the Aritzia website, and I'm pretty sure this is the one I bought. Regardless, it looks pretty similar to the one I purchased, so you'll get the general idea!

I was initially thinking of wearing it with a black pencil skirt to the reception, but the sales associate at Aritzia gave me a great idea of wearing it over top of a dress! So that's exactly what I ended up doing:

Below are a few more pictures from the evening:
