although it was a cloudy weekend down in east florida, we still got dressed up and enjoyed ourselves with a long lost russian friend and a few of his coworkers by grabbing a few fabulous dinners and drinks and ending the nights at a few of their favorite clubs. even though the weather was slightly disappointing, i was still thankful for the 80 degrees (compared to the 24 and frost back home) that allowed me to wear one of my favorite skirts. however, once we reached the clubs, i had discovered that i had dressed way too conservative for an all hallows eve down in those parts. next time ill have to remember that clothing is optional rather than required. another note to keep in mind: down there, people do not go out until after midnight... so getting ready at eight is not ideal.
