Year 26 in Merlot & Hot Pink

I turn a year older today guys. I decided to ring it with merlot, hot pink and dash of sparkle. heels: Forever21 ($15)// tights: forever21 ($5) // dress: topshop ($40) // blazer: forever21 (similar) // necklace: Anthropologie (found on ebay, similar here) I love an a-line dress. It’s so flattering to any figure. A timeless trend. One of the main reasons this blog stays alive, is because in a way it keeps me alive. It gave me a reason to be excited about life. I love documenting life. This necklace was too long for my liking so I pinned it in back with a safety pin and voila its the right length! This year doesn’t feel a whole lot like a birthday. I am forcing myself to celebrate a bit because I know I’ll regret it if I don’t. I’ve rented out a room at a new sushi bar in town where you can do private karaoke. Should be a fun time with friends. I head to SF this weekend to meet up with my cousin who’s visiting from San Diego. I’ve been there a ton because I live so close but would love any fun recommendations that are less touristy. What did you accomplish when you were 26? If you’re not there yet where do you expect to see yourself? I hear 28 is the best year of your 20’s. See how buzz feed breaks down every year of your 20’s, here.

    Gorgeous! I can’t get over the colors! And happy birthday, of course!

    Loved the article from Buzzfeed, as well. Thanks for that. (And I’m going to have to use that safety pin idea when it comes to long necklaces!)

    Girl! This is so so so cute! And happy bday! I totally feel like I did zilch for 26 so you’re already way ahead of me 😉 Love your sparkles and red/pink tones. Color play – you know it best.
