It is my birthday! Woo-hoo!
I used to get really sentimental on my birthday. Birthdays and New Years! But it used to be more of a bittersweet feeling. It was a really fun day, but it went by so fast and now is over. But last year and this year I feel much more optimistic. I feel happy for the day, grateful for all of the relationships in my life and for another year, and excited for the year to come!
And this year is especially exciting because tomorrow we will be packing up and heading off to Seattle! I'm truthfully a bit nervous about the trip. Mainly the flight. But I feel like I have let fear rob me of so many opportunities already, I am not going to let it rob me of this one!
On to the birthday look!
I had been seeing this dress -and variations of this dress- on NastyGal.com for a long time! And each time I always had to urge to scoop it up!
I could not honestly tell you what made me decide to finally do it, but I did!
I personally LOVE it! I feel like there is so much character in this dress! I love the off the shoulder sleeves!
I really wanted to style it with fuchsia heels and bag, but I could not find either that matched what I had envisioned. But black, strappy heels and a bright red clutch work nicely too!
I do realize it is a bit... extra. More so than most looks that I shoot. I did not really want to try and shoot it in the middle of the day when people would be out and about, and I might draw more attention to myself.
So, instead, I got up extremely early and headed out. It worked out great! No one was really around, I got some great shots, and I was back home by 11am. One thing I will say about this dress, the fabric is a bit heavy and warm! I was sweating by the time I left!
Thank you so much for reading! I really appreciate you guys being on this journey with me! =)
See you Friday!
