Happy Friday, December 12!
…Or as I like to call it…my absolute favorite day of the year because it’s my birthday!!!!
I’m a huge fan of traditions to the point where I get sentimental and birthday traditions are my favorite. Some of my favorite traditions include getting a chocolate & banana cake from Veniero’s, a phone call from my mom at the exact time I was born (9:09 A.M) and wearing an absolutely fabulous & glamorous outfit. One of my favorite birthday outfits was a long red dress I wore in 5th grade that made me feel like a princess and ever since then I truly appreciated the effort of wearing something glamorous on my birthday.
I thought long and hard about what I wanted to wear. Seriously I came up with a million and one ideas, but didn’t stick to any of them. Once I saw this skirt, I knew my search was over. After seeing this skirt, I knew exactly how I wanted to style it, down to every last detail. And since I’m incredibly sentimental, I had to wear all of my new favorites and old favorites. I am obsessed with my Nasty Gal cape and think it is the perfect addition to any outfit and I love how it complimented the skirt perfectly. I’m also a sucker for feathers and I can’t even begin to tell you how devastated I was that I didn’t get my hands on the J.Crew collection feather shirt (but Anthropologie has a great alternative). So I was so excited to get my hands on this Club Monaco clutch because it is so glamorous and just amazing. I was lucky enough to receive my BaubleBar order right before my birthday shoot, which was the perfect addition since my necklace features my birthday stone and my earrings are metallic which match perfectly with my skirt.
Can you tell I put a whole lot of thought into every last detail…?
