Guess who is another year older today!! Meeee! I love my birthday, I always have and I hope I always will. It's a fun day to do everything I've deemed not acceptable for any other day. A donut for breakfast? Check! Massive consumption of root beer? Check! (I've even been saving a bottle of my favorite kind for today.) Getting prettied up all pretty just to spend the day sitting around watching Jim Carrey movies? Check!

Of course my birthday dress this year is a striped one because I can never have enough striped dresses. This one from Dear Creatures has been calling my name since I first saw it. I finally splurged on it with the excuse that I always allow myself one special dress each year as a "birthday dress". (I might have even bought a second birthday dress because I couldn't resist. Eeep! I can't wait for it to arrive!)
Well, I'm off to enjoy my special day and finish packing for the adventure my weekend holds.

  22. Happy Birthday! Birthdays are the best! I love your outfit. Stripes + yellow is my favorite ultra-specific clothing obsession!

    Also thought I'd mention that these pics are super reminiscent of Junie B. Jones book covers to me! I guess I see kids' books in everything, though, haha! Anyway, have a fantastic day!
