what I wore: birthday attire!

the details
dress - c/o Modcloth
brooch - c/o Santa Cara
ring - c/o Oasap
bag - c/o Modcloth
belt - came with the dress
shoes - Modcloth

Guess who is celebrating their birthday today.... ME! I'm another year older today! So this is just going to be a short post today since I do have a few things to make note of...
1. Walking around a park with balloons is really embarrassing and dogs will probably be afraid of you (which is awkward.)
2. Jumping with balloons is super noisy.
3. This is the greatest bag ever. Who doesn't want a bag that looks like it has a silly face and tiny arms and legs?! I'm going to buy a cozy little insert so I can use it as a camera bag on days when I just need my camera and no spare lenses.
Hope you all have a marvelous day. I'm going to go snuggle cats, have a Jim Carrey marathon and paint my nails until Kevin gets home from work. Birthdays are for relaxing.
xoxo

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Walking around with balloons is fun! For my blog launch photoshoot, I wore a poofy hot pink Betsey Johnson dress and walked around random parks and places carrying a big bunch of balloons. Definitely got some stares, but hey, it was a good time. Oh, and we went to my parents' house afterward... and their dogs were also terrified of/angry at the balloons. They wouldn't go near the room we kept them in until we got rid of them. Hehe.
