It’s My Birthday…

…and I’ll do what I want to!

That variation of one of the most annoying songs ever was pretty much the theme of my birthday yesterday. I ate chocolate at 10:30 am. I wore sequins all day long. I wore six inch heels in the snow (isn’t that what valet parking is for??). And last, but certainly not least, I ate ten amazing courses at Niche all prepared and described by the executive chef himself.

I’m not sure if you can see it but these jeans have a really subtle polka dot to them! In addition, I scored them on the Nordstrom Rack clearance rack for only $8! With my superly discounted Tracy Reese blouse, shoes from a friend and affordable ring at around $10, this was one great steal of an outfit!

I have a feeling 25 will be my favorite year yet!

    • Thanks, Carrie!

      I love Nordstrom Rack for a great deal, but just be prepared to sift through a lot of really awful clothes! :) It takes quite a bit longer, but you can find some good deals if you take your time.

  4. Happy Belated Birthday! You look gorgeous! I hope you had an amazing day, by the sounds of it, it was great. Eating chocolate cake at 10:30am; sounds like you had a good time to me!

    I love the shoes! They’re serious, super high, super sexy and edgy with those studs on the platform. You can vaguely see the polka dots on the jeans, they sound cool too and fit you fabulously.
