My Birthday Is Coming

Or Buy Me Something!

My Birthday is less than 2 months away, and it is seriously my favorite time of the year. Since it's my favorite, I'm already planning what I want to do. We never really do anything to big for my birthday, it's always dinner out with just the family and presents. I'm gonna be completely honest, presents are my favorite part. Since I've been sick all week, I've been laying on the couch making these on Polyvore. Most of them I haven't published, but I liked these two enough to share.

I've already got my outfit picked out, and of course I don't actually have any of this stuff. It's inspired by Emma Stone, because she's my latest style obsession.

Birthday Outfit


It's the absolute perfect casual easy going outfit. Classic, Chic and Comfortable, and it's all things I should have in my wardrobe and don't. Which since it's all classic pieces it gives me the perfect excuse to buy them. First up is this Gap Boyfriend Oxford Shirt, I have been meaning to buy a white button down forever, but keep putting it off. Then are these jeans from H&M, these look absolutely perfect and comfortable. I think the best part is that they're midrise and dark wash with no rips or tears in them. Then there's Tom's. I've never really been a big fan of how the shoes look, but they've started to grow on me, bonus they're one of those buy and do good things. I actually plan on buying myself a pair for my birthday. Then the accessories for the outfit, I'm kinda in love with all of them.  There are these Ampersand Earrings from Kate Spade, this Monogram S necklace from Nadri, these amazing Drifter Sunnies from Madewell and my absolute favorite this Twelfth St. By Cynthia Vincent Shopper. I adore this bag. I'm not really one for handbags, but this one is gorgeous.

Continuing with the theme of My Birthday Is Coming Soon(ish), I've also put together a wishlist collage.

Birthday wishlist



It's not a very long list this year, but I adore each and everyone of these items on my list. You'll notice that the accessories that were in my outfit post above are all on this wishlist. I'll start with the Jewelry, There's the Say Yes Ampersand Earrings from Kate Spade, the Monogram S necklace from Nadri and also this Monogram bracelet from Alex and Ani. I'd also really like a nice pair of Sunglasses and while I'd love a pair from Warby Parker, I think they're a bit expensive for this year, so these Drifter Suglasses from Madewell in tortoiseshell  are a great alternative. Then I really love this iPhone Case from Lilly Pulitzer, and this brush set from Real Techniques. A Barnes and Noble Gift Card is always welcome. I am of course a shoe addict and since I've worn out my Floral H&M shoes, I was thinking it's time to graduate to Keds. I really love these Kate Spade for Keds, but then again these Paw Print Taylor Swift for Keds have had a special place in my heart ever since we brought Howl home. We have a tie for my most wanted item this year, and that's between a Keurig and the Twelfth St. Shopper by Cynthia Vincent. I adore both of them and would be absolutely ecstatic with either one.
