Hey guys! This post has taken me longer than expected to put together, but nevertheless, here it is! As you saw in my last few posts, Last weekend I celebrated my 19th birthday and it was the best the birthday yet! For a whole week, I ran around town searching for the perfect dress to wear on my birthday. I even bought a few, and not a single one of those ended up being the dress I wore!


I found this dress at The Mint Julep Boutique for under $10! They seriously have the best sales, so go check them out! This striped dress is now one of my most favorite outfits ever. I have a feeling that this will be my go-to dress for a while. It is quarter length sleeved and is the comfiest thing ever! I’m a sucker for stripes, so when I saw this dress, I had to have it. Sadly, they are now sold out of this dress but have another style in stock that is very similar!



These Chinese Laundry, taupe heels were found at DSW and the laces tie in a bow in the back. These shoes are so very comfortable! I was actually surprised at how easily I could walk in them once I put them on. They match this dress perfectly, allowing the stripes to be the main theme of the look. I love nude heels because they are still so fabulous, yet don’t over take the whole outfit! The rhinestone bangle is by Kate Spade, and it was the perfect birthday gift from my brother! The light pink stoned monogram bracelet is one I picked up a few years ago from Marley Lily, and the blue, black, and gold beaded bracelet is one of my favorites that I sport around every day, made by Pura Vida.

    I love that you are dressing up a pura vida bracelet. I wear mine every day and felt Self conscious about it not being nice enough for fancier occasions! Thanks girl!

        Same! I feel like I have to hide mine if I am dressing nicely. It is so meaningful, that I don’t ever want to take them off!
