My birthday is just 13 days away! Yep, my good people, I will be #33 on the 31st. Normally I just kinda let my birthday sneak up on me and hurriedly make plans at the last minute. But this year I’ve been very intentional in taking some time to celebrate all of me. These past 9 months have been the pure definition of a roller coaster ride. There have been some major wins; like being featured on my favorite podcast of life Being Boss and opening my own online retail store. And deep losses that left my head spinning like going through a rough break up and dealing with the aftermath of an assault. I could’ve let it all break me, instead, I chose to stand strong. So for the month of October, I’ve been getting dressed up and making myself have fun and celebrate! I’ve been going to art shows, concerts and eating good in the neighborhood just to show myself some birthday month love.
This past Sunday I got all dolled up and went to church, spent some time working on the blog at one of my favorite cafes and went to a fun event with my bestie Kay. Mother nature really showed out this past weekend. It was cold and rainy so I decided to bundle up a little.
I finally got a chance to rock this amazingly cozy Bell Sleeves Sweater that I got from Forever 21 way back in August. I am so in love with this sweater! It has that super 70’s vibe that I am all about.
I paired it with my favorite Mossimo Flare Leg Jeans from Target. Yep, I transitioned those jeans I rocked all summer long into a cute fall look. I grabbed a cool Tortoise Shell Pendant that I got ages ago from H&M that had been collecting dust on my dresser. That necklace really pulled the entire look together, especially when I put on Savage Matte Lipstick by the Lip Bar. I’ve been rocking the hell out of these mules so I figured why not throw those in the mix. And just like that, I was 70’s Cool!
