my bday ootd

i’m wearing: h&m dress, me too bow flats, h&m colorblocked clutch, spike the punch bracelet, michael kors watch and my perfect memorials necklace.

last thursday my girlfriends took me out to dinner to one of my fave mexican restaurants to celebrate my birthday! it was such a fun evening…they even had the mariachi band sing happy birthday to me. i am so lucky to have these girls (ahem, women) in my life! unfortunately i didn’t get any good pics of us all at the restaurant, but this is what i wore. btw, i bought this clutch in THREE different colors. it is only $17.95 and SO cute, right?

    You look just gorgeous! How does it feel to be 29?! πŸ™‚

    I checked my H&M for the clutches and they only had the gold/pink one – I so wanted that coral/tan combo you instagrammed!

    I tried on that dress last weekend and almost bought it. Instead I bought the mint green skater dress with pink belt and the matching skirt (I like mint!).

    I loved the bag so I went and bought it:) I loved the texture of the coral and tan one more, but decided to go with this one (for now:) cause it is more like a neutral – would go with any outfit.
    Thanks for sharing! Now I am a proud owner of this bag too;):)

    I have a question- I just bought this dress from H&M over the weekend and was having second thoughs about it. Did you find that you had to wear a cami underneath it as it was a bit sheer? Also I got it to go with a skinny braided tan belt that I have, do you think this would look good paired with some wedge sandals? Maybe tan or beige instead of the flats you paired it with?

    I love that dress. I tried it on a few weeks ago but the empire waist hit me weird where my belly bump. But looks great on you!
