A Girly Pink Pencil Skirt, Sparkly Sunglasses, Polka Dot Bustier, & Floral Shoes Outfit

Today is my 23rd birthday! I wore this outfit last week but it's definitely a recent favorite and I like how the pictures turned out so it'll be my outfit post for today. Jeanie took these pictures for me after class the other day so hooray for some different scenery!

Anyway, this outfit was kind of inspired by Barbie. Pink sparkly sunglasses and a pink skirt with a polka dot bustier combines for ultimate girly-ness. Pink and sparkles automatically equals Barbie in my mind. Maybe I'm 90s Barbie with my jean jacket? The specifics don't matter because this was just a fun outfit and especially appropriate to post on the blog on my birthday.

jean jacket: so... - thrifted | bustier top: forever 21 | skirt: thrifted | shoes: not rated - delia's | necklace: made by my aunt | sunglasses: dollar store | gracie camera bag purse - jo totes






Unfortunately I have class today even though it's Columbus Day and my birthday. I'm going out to dinner tonight though. I haven't figured out where yet, but I'm sure it'll be ultra tasty. I'm pretty sure this birthday will be a calm one and that's a-okay with me. Last year's celebration was kind of a catastrophe so pushing that farther in the past is a good thing. 

It feels really weird to be 23 though. I'm getting old. I'm just hoping this year of my life will be better than 22 was because 22 sucked. Feeling like 22 felt like constant graduate work and no friends and a few other sad events. I did have fun with my wardrobe though, so I guess that's a good thing! 

But anyway. I hope you guys have a great day! I will be having the best day possible because it's my birthday!

AH! Happy, happy birthday Jamie!!! I hope you're having a fantastic day even though you DID have to go to school. Hehe, and you just wait till you get married and start having kids, THEN you'll be like "Whoa, I grew up, when did that happen? I'm old."
Well, I don't actually feel old, but sometimes it's just weird.
I think this outfit is so adorable, and I totally get the Barbie thing! I have some almost pastel pink lipstick that is very Barbie to me, in the best way possible. Pink and sparkles is definitely Barbie.
