Happy Birthday Dan!

Today is my little brother’s 32 birthday!

Dan is my first friend, the person that understands all the family crazy, gets my crazy and is one of my favorite people in the world. He’s thoughtful and funny and I wish we lived closer and could hang out more often.

Love you Dan! Hope 32 is the best year yet!

Can you believe we were ever that little? My Grandma made those outfits for us. And my doll had a matching outfit.

Yeah. That’s probably the last time I’ll ever post a bathing suit picture of myself. 🙂

We laugh about this picture. It’s the last one before we hit the awkward middle school ages.

A reminder I was athletic. Once.

Why didn’t anyone tell me this shirt was not flattering?

What I Wore Wednesday

Friends, I leave to go out of town for work this week. I’ll be back at some point next Tuesday. But fear not! I have scheduled a bunch of fun posts!

Before I go, I thought we should take a peek at what I’ve been wearing!

Sweater: Textured Dot Sweater | Ann Taylor
Skirt: Fanned Floral Pencil Skirt | Ann Taylor
Shoes: Sarto by Franco Sarto ‘Aziza’ Block Heel Pump | Nordstrom
Similar Necklace: BP Mother of Pearl Pendant  | Nordstrom

Okay. I stole this whole outfit from Sheaffer. The whole thing. Sweater, skirt, shoes. None of it my idea. And due to the fact that my phone camera is acting weird, the colors are off a bit. But let me tell you. I love this outfit!! The skirt is super comfortable and the sweater just fits so nicely. You could tuck the sweater in for a different look too. Since I’m so short, it makes me torso look even shorter, so I left it out. I recommend this look for sure!

Shirt: Lush Twist Front Shirt | Nordstrom
Jeans: AEO Denim X Jegging |  American Eagle
Similar Boots: Jeffrey Campbell ‘Taggart’ Cutout Bootie

Sheaffer recommended this shirt. And it’s fantastic. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the high-low thing. But as it turns out, I didn’t mind it in this shirt.

Now let’s chat about my booties that you can’t really see. lol. I really wanted a low gray pair. I didn’t want to spend $$$. So I saw on a group deal website a pair that looked similar for $20. Let me tell you – they aren’t great. They look cute and initially I thought they were comfy. No. My feet hurt after barely walking around in them. I’m not sure what the expensive pair is like (probably real leather and not plastic like mine) but mine are no good. Sad.

Behind the red door, is the place where George Washington planned the Whiskey Rebellion. Kind of cool.

On a total whim, I bought these Nike’s. They are awesome. Super comfy. Adorable. I’m mad that I scuffed them within the first 10 min of wearing them, but it happens with white sneaks, I guess. I highly recommend them!!
