What I Wore: My 22nd Birthday!

I turned 22 yesterday. As a child I wasn’t super big into birthdays, but as an adult I realize that I am for sure not getting any younger and I had better enjoy these birthdays while I am young!

Skirt: J. Crew Collection Via Goodwill/Top: H&M/Tights: American Apparel
Note: I fixed the top to where the violet didn’t show. I was so mad I didn’t catch that when we took these photos.

I bought this skirt at Goodwill for $6 earlier this year and it was a J. Crew Collection skirt. Let me say that again, I got a J. Crew Collection for $6 at Goodwill. I was so excited when I bought it but I haven’t had the excuse to wear it yet. I figure birthdays are a go big or go home type of event and completely worthy of sequins and some bold color. The actual skirt has a lot of purple and violet tones but I saw almost an identical skirt on a mannequin in NYC and it paired cobalt with it.


As you may have seen in this post, I majorly wanted a Jayhawk ice cream cake. As the boyfriend always does, he came through and got me exactly what I wanted. It was freaking delicious.

Saturday evening we went out to dinner with my family for dinner and then we joined the boyfriends family for dessert. This cake was super delicious.


This upcoming weekend I will be also celebrating so I will be sure to share photos from that!
