Birthday FBF (Flash Back Friday)

I celebrated my birthday two Sundays ago. It was one of the best ones I have had in the last few years. I think what made it so great is that I decided (a few years back) not to have anxiety about my birthday. Yes, I said anxiety. I use to want to have the best day and put so much pressure on myself to make it super memorable and make sure that I had the best time. So anything that was left of what I thought was the best time made me sad and made everyone else miserable too. A few years ago I had a big party, and after all of the work of putting it together I felt it was overrated. The 2nd part of that was I knew my husband and I wanted to have a baby, and once we did, the big birthdays were no longer about me. So I put all of that crazy to bed! Lol. Fast forward 3 years; we had just become parents and my husband asked what I wanted to do for my birthday and I wanted nothing more than a simple dinner and a movie because once you become a parent, those things are a distant memory! This year when he asked, I requested the same thing (if it ain't broke...right?). So we reversed the order and went to an afternoon movie and later had dinner with family and close friends. It was a wonderful time. We had a private room. My husband had ordered special center pieces and had a rose brought to the table every few minutes through the night til they totaled the age I turned. #Swoon lol. We talked and laughed and just had a wonderful time. I learned that simple can be so soothing and a mark of maturity - just what you need to know you are loved.

P.S This is my Birthday look a vintage dress, gold sandals and Kate Spade bag

Wardrobe Anatomy "Staples and Classics" OOTD

Mixing everyday staples like this denim shirt and a classic circle skirt that is usually a little more conservative can be tricky at times. Finding common ground is the key to making it work. In this case, I saw that the skirt had a hint of blue and was also made of thicker materials. Other things that can work are similar patterns and/or same materials but silhouettes that you normally wouldn't put together.
