I think I’ve made it clear how important birthdays are to me. In my last post, I recapped the only date night I’ve had in 75 years and the outfit I chose to wear to celebrate the day before my birthday. So what did I actually wear on my birthday?That’s a good question. I knew my actual birthday was going to be fairly low-key. And honestly, that’s the only way I would’ve wanted it. After the great fun I had the day before, I was exhausted. I don’t remember doing a full face of makeup and looking as hot as possible taking so much effort. Never mind even though I nursed Little Love throughout my expedition, I had a lot of willing babysitters so I could look and feel my best.
So after the craziness of Dategate, I just wanted to spend time with my family. I had a few errands and typical things to do the day of, so I didn’t feel like wearing anything restrictive.
I purchased this skirt from Forever 21 on a whim because it was dirt-cheap and I have wanted a tulle/lace skirt. It was marketed as a midi, but I pulled it to be high-waisted so it fell at the knee. I typically wear minis, but this made more sense as I get the baby in and out of the stroller, etc.
I wrestled for weeks debating on what to pair with the skirt as a top. I thought something flashy and sequin-y would look beautiful contrasted with the delicate lace. And it probably would. But seeing as how my day was much more laid-back, I opted for a simple black tank (one of the $1.90 variety, also from F21).
Luckily, my hair fell a bit overnight as second day curls and it was wavier than anything. This matched well with the boho vibe and Madden Girl fake Burks I decided to wear. I recycled the 1970s choker from the day before and tada!
As for makeup, I kept it fairly simple. I focused mainly on making sure my skin looked smooth and mascara on the eyes. As I said with the last post, I can do a play-by-play for this look, although this one is very easy, but just let me know.
Let me know in the comments below or on any of my socials which look you prefer!
Happy days and see y’all soon!
