I turn 25 tomorrow. Over the weekend I had planned to take outfit photos including a cute set of birthday themed photos for the blog. I had a giant to do list filled with tasks I wanted to complete before Tuesday but of course I found myself coming down with a cold on Friday and practically bed ridden on Sunday. Oh life! It’s so cliche but I feel like my 24th birthday was just last month and the 23rd was just a month before that. It’s true what they say, life moves faster as you grow older.
Speaking of time, Christmas feels like it was literally five minutes ago so it feels crazy to even be day dreaming about my birthday gifts. I haven’t even put all my Christmas gifts away yet (but hey I’ve been on vacation so I have an excuse). But I do love putting together a pretty wish list and sharing the pieces I think are pretty or useful or dreamy.
One| Goop Clean Beauty– Call me crazy but I adore Gwenyth Paltrow. I’ll admit she is so out of touch with reality when it comes to the lives of the average person but her health and beauty tips are so fab.
Two| Fresh Rose Face Mask– I am so grateful for my recent trip to California and the Bahamas but you know what isn’t? My skin! Between different climates and the recycled air on planes my skin is feeling reptilian. I tried a sample of this Rose face mask from Sephora and I am dying for the full sized product.
Three| Kate Spade Jewel Button Wool Coat– I’m in a total jacket phase lately. I want a closet full of chic, feminine jackets to keep me warm all winter long. I’m currently crushing on this one on sale at Kate Spade but can’t quite justify purchasing it for myself. It is pure girly girl perfection!
Four| Frieda Rothman Metropolitan Ring– I’ve become so obsessed with accessories over the past year (mostly thanks to Rocksbox). Believe it or not it took me until age 24 to realize how much great accessories can change an outfit. This ring fits my boho loving style without being too gaudy or over the top.
Five| Club Monaco Annina Skirt– The color and pleating of this skirt make it both modern and feminine. I love that this skirt is long enough to be appropriate for work without feeling dated and stuffy.
Six| Kate Spade Carima Loafer– Transitioning to a new position in my career I am expected to dress more professionally. I love that these loafers are on trend but feel appropriate in a business casual office setting.
Seven|Genifique Serum– I usually use the Kate Somerville “Quench” serum before applying moisturizer but I received the Lance Genefique serum as a sample last spring. Since then I have wanted to try the Genefique serum as a daily source of moisture and vitamins. If you use it I would love your reviews!
Eight| Erin Condren Life Planner– My Grandparents sent me some birthday money and I ordered myself a new Erin Condren life planner right away. I’ve used a variety of planners before but Erin Condren is still my all time favorite. I can’t wait for mine to arrive!
Nine| Club Monaco Wisten Sweater Dress– This fit and flare sweater dress is cozy enough that it feels like pajamas while still looking put together for work, brunch or a day out and about. I adore the blue on blue option best!
Ten| Manolo Blahnik Flats– Okay so this one is a bit of a luxury wish list items but my inner Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t resist. I love pieces that add a touch of glamour to a day to day outfit. These flats are what fashionista dreams are made of. Sigh…someday! (;
I have the day off today, so even though I am sick I’m planning to have a little fun. I’m meeting my mom for pedicures later this morning and hoping to meet up with a girlfriend to shop for my “first day of work on my birthday outfit”. I mean if you start a new job on your birthday you totally deserve a new look right? (:
