It happened. I’m 23 years old as of Monday at 11:36 AM. As the wise blink-182 lyrics go, “Nobody likes you when you’re 23.” That isn’t at all factual due to the fact the two birthday parties I had were a hit and many of my close friends and family came and showered me in gifts and love (and alcohol.)

This post is a birthday fashion appreciation post because who doesn’t like a fashionable birthday girl…the answer is EVERYone likes a fashionable birthday lady.

Friday Night: Rips Bar and Liquor in Cadiz, KY

This outfit would also be great as a stepping into fall look.

Shirt- H&M (was on sale for only $5!)

Shorts- H&M in Dark Green

Belt- Yard sale

Jewelry-  I love gold accessories but I mostly find my jewelry at Forever 21 or Plato’s Closet

  • Rips Bar and Liquor in my hometown is so much fun and has a great positive energy. If you ever go through the small town of Cadiz, KY make sure you stop by!

NASHVILLE: South

Dress- shophopes.com

Shoes- my mom got me these years ago but I love them and they have a gold skull on them :p

  • I went to the bar South on Demonbreun St. in Nashville, TN and had a blast! My dress was easy to dance in and the drinks only slightly stained my dress (I am the worlds worst at spilling drinks.)

BIRTHDAY DAY (JULY 11th): Soft Makeup

softbirthdayI did a very casual brown/red look. Below is what I used to achieve it.

I had the best weekend with all of my friends and family. I am so blessed to have the people I have surround me. They help me get through each day and I had the most amazing birthday because of them. I hope that you all have people like that in your lives because we all deserve the happiness I feel everyday because of that. Have a great week!
