WIW: birthday dinner outfit

Here's what I wore for my birthday dinner this evening. It's a dress I bought in Paris several years ago and wore on my birthday during that trip. So it has sentimental value to me, even though I don't wear it often. I like to use dinner out for an occasion as a reason to dress a little more than usual, even if I could just go to the restaurant in jeans.

The outfit:
Gray silk layered low-waisted dress; nude pumps (AGL); blush bag (Nordstrom); blush and rose-gold watch (Olivia Burton); fresh-water pearl bracelet (Lucky); rose gold necklace and rose gold with abalone earrings (Kendra Scott); bone linen sweater (Nic & Zoe).

Thanks for looking!
I appreciate any thoughts you wish to share.

    That dress is stunning and it looks like it was custom made for you. You look fierce and modern and somehow like a classical statue all at the same time - just wow.
    Happy birthday!
