Thirty, Furry, and Fabulous 

I’ve never been one to make too much of a fuss over my birthday, but turning 30 seemed like a milestone worth celebrating. Thank you to my wonderful friends who joined Ted and me for brunch in Old Town at Trademark Drink and Eat. I figured it was a good excuse to dress up a bit, and took full advantage of the opportunity to wear this furry jacket that certainly made me the center of attention. My sweet friends showered me with peonies, macaroons, baubles, and more of my favorite things. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and I am truly grateful that I have such amazing people in my life. Thank you all for celebrating with me, and thank you for reading!                 Jacket / Sunglasses / Ring

Spring Forward

Having grown up in the South, I am not used to long, snowy winters and have been desperately searching for signs of spring. The groundhog left me sorely disappointed and winter storms seem to be hitting back to back, so I have enjoyed every moment of this sunny Saturday. I couldn’t resist stopping in front of this spring green gate to snap a few shots of my almost springy outfit. With all of the bling I’m already wearing, I’m thinking I’ll just swap my flats out for heels for dinner out in Old Town tonight. Along with the birds chirping, setting my clock forward always seems to give me confidence that spring is just around the corner (even though it means a shorter weekend). Don’t forget to “spring forward” tonight and thanks for stopping by!

I shopped my closet rather than the racks for this outfit, but you can still snag these Kate Spades sunnies (currently 25% off with code SPRWD15) and Clinique lipstick in watermelon! For a similar look, try this sweater and these flats.
