What I Wore: For My Birthday

I took a few quick photos of my outfit yesterday before leaving for Mandarin. I knew I'd be stuffing myself silly (and I did) so I chose my trusty, stretchy jersey dress. Of course, I had to wear my new tank top underneath and a bright scarf to add a bit of colour:
The scarf matches the necklace I'm wearing.
Not that you can really tell since these are terrible photos! These are literally the only ones I took though, so... working with what I have.

I also took a photo of my new sweater - but it's still a bit too warm to wear it:
OK, that one is a little better, but still. I need to work on my self-photography skills!

After all that, I decided to paint my nails:
I thought a blue gradient was appropriate to match my navy tank top.

The details:

  • dress: Sirens (I think) - about 5 or 6 years old
  • tank top: c'est moi clothing co. (birthday gift)
  • scarf: vintage (Etsy)
  • beaded necklace: handmade (by me)
  • flipflops: Aldo (from my gramma, this summer)
  • zip-up hoodie: Bench (birthday gift) 
  • nail polish: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 420 Pacific Blue (thumb); Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Cosmic Blue (index and ring); Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 460 Thinking of Blue (middle); Nicole by O.P.I. in Nicole's Nickel (top layer on ring); Avon Nailwear Pro in N239 Night Violet (pinky); Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 180 Disco Ball (top layer on pinky)

Well, it wasn't anything elaborate or extravagant, but I had a pretty awesome birthday overall. Looking forward to my 27th year of life!
