Look of the Day: It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To

I wrote this post yesterday but apparently I never pressed publish.
Thank you for all my birthday wishes!!

When I was little I used to cry the night before my birthday because I would never be that age again. Strange, I know. Most kids probably felt like it was Christmas Eve the night before their birthday but no, I was the child reflecting that I would never ever be Seven again. Perhaps that is why I had to step outside during my small birthday celebration with my family yesterday. Maybe I needed to cry because yesterday was in fact the last day I would be 27. Or maybe it the culmination of me feeling sorry for myself (which we found out can be cured by purchasing a fun dress). In any case I needed a little cry before I went back inside to eat cake, open presents, watch the Giants win and toast to my health and birthday. After all that excitement my cry was long behind me, so were my thoughts of reflecting on my 27th year.
Here's to year 28 and all it may hold for me.
This Urban Outfitters Dress is is so comfortable and the perfect thing to wear on a hot day, and the perfect birthday Eve dress.
And the back on it is too cute!
My H&M hat is necessary for making sure my face stays looking as young as I feel.
Urban dress and my new rocking arm band.
Shoes have been something that I haven't really needed much of recently. Although Chloe recommenced I pick up some bunny slippers.
My mom always knows how to make me happy.
I was able to blow out all 28 candles, even with a hole in my lung.
Yay for the Giants sweeping the A's, days warm enough to wear dresses and birthday eves.

  3. Happy Birthday Gorgeous! I cried before my 30th birthday this year (actually I also cried on my birthday), there is just something about letting go of a year of your life I think. However I hope 28 is fantastic for you! And by the looks of your darling outfit you are right on schedule to make that happen!

  7. 28 will be great! I'm feeling the same thing about my next birthday. I'm 29 and the thought of leaving my 20's is freaky...but I'm ready for whatever comes next.

  9. The dress is absolutely stunning on you! Even though I don't get a chance to comment every day, I still love seeing everything you wear. You're so inspiring.

    I'm 27 in less than a month, and I'm really starting to stress about it. Growing up 27 was the perfect adult age, not too old, not too young. The same age I froze my own mother in time at, and my, I'm almost there. I hope 28 is wonderful for you!
