Birthday Outfit Daydreaming

My birthday is coming up at the end of this week, on Saturday, and you know what I just realized? I didn't buy a birthday outfit. It's kind of a silly little tradition that I buy myself a new dress or item of clothing every year to wear on my birthday just to feel special. This year it totally slipped my mind. Perhaps because my birthday plans are to ride my bike and I don't ride in dresses? Who knows! I'm kind of kicking myself for not buying something though. I mean, there's a possibility that if I ordered something it would get here in time, and I could always venture into the mall and look for something. Eeek! For now I'm just browsing Modcloth's sale section. They're having a huge sale and there are soooo many good things marked way way down. Regardless if it would have gotten here in time or not I would have snagged this one if it were still available in a medium! 

Guess I should head to the mall and at least pick myself up a new striped shirt. Hah!

  3. What a lovely tradition! I have always enjoyed celebrating my birthday by doing something new and fun, but the last few years it has just sort of passed me by being so busy. But buying yourself a little something to wear on your birthday to make it special is a brilliant idea – I hope you find something in time!

  4. These are all insanely cute!! <3


  5. Those are all great choices! Anything with a Peter Pan collar gets me. The sale is insane! I bought two dresses and a pair of shorts for under $60!

  6. love all the stripe picks and the bees knees shoes are so cool :)
    i'm sure you will find a cool bday outfit :)

  7. 7 and 9 are too cute! I love the shape of them. I hope you enjoy your birthday!!


  8. A new outfit for your birthday is such a fabulous idea. Love the colors and those striped yellow shoes are killer!

  9. I love every dress. But I prefer #2 or #5. I think you may be in love with stripes and polka dots. Ha! You should definitely buy a new dress for your birthday. Every girl should feel special on their birthdays.

  10. Ack! i love dresses 4 & 6. That collar is so darn cute!

  11. I do the same thing every year: buy myself a new outfit. Or, if I'm running low on funds, plan my outfit ahead of time and make sure it's something I really like. I dunno. I've always been the kind of person who loves birthdays, especially my own! Makes me feel silly sometimes because none of my friends are too fussed about birthdays. An excuse to dress up is an excuse to dress up, right? :)
