birthday girl








Outfit Details:
trench - Old Navy (last year)
shirt - Anthropologie
cutoffs - Free People
tights - Madewell
Ampersand heels - c/o Seychelles
bracelet - Betsey Johnson
necklace - c/o Sorrelli
Legacy Leather Duffle - c/o Coach
lipstick - MAC Russian Red

I don't like wearing heels at the dog park, but sometimes I'm dumb and forget to bring a pair of flats. All of the dogs were probably judging me, but Miku is used to me strange wardrobe choices. It was my birthday on Saturday, and being that I am recovering from being sick and don't really celebrate my birthday all that much, I kept it low-key. Birthdays stress me out and I tend to get panicky and weird, so I've learned that it's best to treat it like any other day...because that's just what it is. I spent the day at the dog park with Miku and Bobby, we had lobster rolls for lunch, and then had a couple of friends over for a very late dinner, which Bobby cooked. Naturally, I had my Funfetti cake because that is the best, and really all that I require from a birthday. Hold the gifts and give me that cake.

Speaking of gifts, this Coach bag wasn't technically a birthday present, but it came at such a perfect time that it felt that way. In reality, it was a lovely gift in honor of their Legacy Collection...but I'll just pretend that they knew it was my birthday and wanted it to be a special one. It's more fun that way! Cake, a new bag, a pretty package from my mom, dinner with friends, and Miku's smiling face? What a great birthday.

  14. Happy Belated Birthday!!! I'm also not so keen on birthdays (ever since I turned 20) but the just today my friend told me that each year is a new blessing and the world has more to give me and for me to receive!! This has changed my outlook on birthdays. I'll now stop dreading them (mine is on the 23rd of this month so the words were very timely).

  17. You look gorgeous! The bag is a very lovely birthday present indeed. I just googled 'Funfetti cake' (Germany apparently has very boring cakes) and now I want one too.

    Happy belated birthday anyway!

  32. Glad to see you were enjoying your birthday even though you were recovering from being ill. Love the bag. And it's so nice to see there's someone else around who likes and wears white tights :) People tend to look at me as if I'm crazy when I wear them on the street (but then again, I live in a rather small city).

  39. Your Anthropologie shirt, Madewell tights, Sorelli necklace, and Mac Rissian Red lipstick go beautifully together and the photos made for a lovely birthday outfit post. I'm amazed that you took the time doing a post on your birthday. Happy Birthday again! (belatedly this time) and hopes that you have a happy remainder of your birth month.
