Well, fellow fashionistas, do I look 30? That’s how old I turned on my birthday on New Year’s Eve, and while I don’t necessarily feel old, there are a few tell-tale signs that remind me I’m not as young as I used to be. For instance,my knees have started to hurt every now and then, which I used to make fun of Nick for a while back so I’m sure it’s karma, and I’ve started experiencing side effects from medications, like headaches and drowsiness, that I never experienced before. Other than that, I feel pretty darn good!
I wore this outfit during the day of my birthday for breakfast at one of my favorite diners and then for mani/pedis with Nick – you can probably tell that my pants are wrinkly at the bottom from being pushed up to to my knees during my calf massage. I wore another outfit that night for a fancy dinner and ringing in the new year at a friend’s house. That outfit will be part 2 so stay tuned! Also, check out my special sparkly birthday shoes! Nick picked them out for me and I’m loving them 🙂
I needed a black clutch and found an old one that I’d been using. It was working out fine but then Nick bought me this one for Christmas. The textured front sparkles in the light, which, of course, is the best part.
