Birthday Fab

In the midst of our latest winter storm warning, I celebrated a birthday this past weekend. Here’s my birthday looks as well as a peek at my birthday gift ūüôā It was a cold and windy weekend with a fair amount of snow. But I still had a great weekend – met my¬† mother-in-law for lunch during the day on Saturday and then Saturday evening went out with friends. Despite the snowy weather, it was a wonderful weekend, and I always enjoy celebrating my birthday! First up is my lunch look, however weather dictated that the shoes were a no-go, but like I said on my Instagram page…let’s just pretend!

Jeans/Blouse/Shoes: J.Crew, Sweater: Banana Republic, Bag: Kate Spade (outlet)

This is one of those outfits that I think describes me perfectly – basics with pops of color. This shade of pink and purple are some of my favorites and mixing them with a few classic patterns – windowpane and leopard, was a perfect combination. I will probably modify this outfit to wear to work I loved it so much! Here’s a closeup of these gorgeous shoes, the J.Crew Martina Wedge in calf hair. I took my usual 1/2 size up in these shoes. I’m sad they had to stay¬† home since it was so snowy out, but I’ll be wearing these in the office until the weather improves outdoors. I was also excited to recently find this shade of pink at Banana Republic¬† – they call it wild orchid and it is a perfect magenta hot pink.

And here’s what I really looked like bundled up to go outside! (yes, I put a coat on). Scarf: Free People / Gloves: J.Crew (old). Bracelets: J.Crew, Kate Spade, Tiffany’s, Groopdealz

20140125_120933We have a local store where I live that lets you pick out one item for 40% off on your birthday…no brand restrictions. So…this is usually how I pick out¬† my birthday present! I had a few things in mind this year, I looked at the watches as well as shoes, but finally settled on the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote which I’ve had¬† my eye on. After seeing it in real life, the decision was a no-brainer. It will be a great spring/summer neutral!

And finally, here’s my outfit (again, had to swap the flats for boots) to go out to dinner with DH and then meet our friends out for drinks. I am lucky to have great family and friends and wonderful people to spend birthdays with! It was a great weekend. I could use one more day to the weekend!!

Blouse & Jeans: J.Crew / Necklace: Ameera Noor (J.Crew inspired) / Blazer: Cynthia Rowley via Marshall’s / Shoes: Old Navy / Bag: Banana Republic

I had grand plans to pick out a brand new outfit but that just didn’t happen – wanted to wear the blouse so swapped out the necklace and added my faux-leather sleeve blazer (via Marshall’s) and a fun bag. So what do you think of my birthday weekend outfits? Would love to hear what you think and thanks for visiting!
