Birthday candles

Today I’m blowing out 22 candles on my birthday cake. I’m not doing anything elaborate, just meeting an old friend for coffee and having a family get-together with German chocolate pie (my favorite). But I wouldn’t have it any other way. The older I get, the more I cherish the mini moments in life. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Liberty of London for Target via Garage sale
Cargo Jacket: LOFT (similar)
Boots: Goodwill (similar)
Sunnies: Free People (Gift)
Bow Clip: Rue21 (similar)
Rings: Forever 21/Charming Charlie/H&M (similar leopard ring

I was initially going to wear some black heels with this, but my gut said boring! So I went with what was unexpected (for me) and paired my dress with these leather ankle boots I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago. I like the rough and tough of the boots and the cargo jacket paired with a flowery dress and a bow in my hair. Nothing like starting off a new age with a new look!

P.S. Check out some other cargo jackets I have my eye on!
