How to Pick Out Your Birthday Suit

Hey Fashionista! This weekend I celebrated my 30th birthday.  It wasn't the typical all-out fancy bash that one might think of having on a big milestone like this. It was more of a cozy, fall-style, intimate gathering at my house with my close friends and hubby.  We spent the afternoon into the wee hours of the night eating my delicious pot roast dinner (if I do say so myself ;) gulping fall-themed adult beverages (with a side of Starbucks!).  The majority of the night involved laughing incessantly at our incomprehensible jokes while carving pumpkins violently --- because obviously it's a contest!

Oh...did I mention we busted out Jenga inbetween that time? 
Jenga is...the best. game. ever. 

Jumping a few steps back to when I woke up one thing that was hugely on my mind was: what am I going to wear?? I don't care if you're sitting in front of the TV all day or hitting up Vegas, your outfit is the marker of your special day.  It's important to put some thought into it. Make it count and most importantly make it reflect the person you are. So to get you going....I've outlined two things to ponder that will guide you on how to pick out your birthday suit!

Like my birthday suit?! 
Top: Victoria's Secret - Shorts: LOFT Crop Pants (cut into jean shorts) 
Belt: LOFT -Socks: Victoria's Secret Pink -Shoes: Converse

1. What type of day will you be having?
Mine was casual. Dinner with friends at my place and having fun over conversation, So I chose my favorite casual attire - which were: white jeans shorts, blue slub tee and jazzed it up with a braided belt, knee socks and converse.  I contemplated getting a little more dolled up for dinner, but we carved pumpkins beforehand, so I skipped it! 

Think about the activities you are doing for your birthday.  Figure out what part of the day you will make your mark in honor of your birthday and then ask yourself....

2. How gussied up do I need/want to be?
Is it glamorous? Or is it casual? What you will do to celebrate your birthday will determine the answer. Dining at home means you can dress however you want. Casual or fancy. But going out to dinner and having drinks calls for a killer dress or posh jeans with stilettos.

All in all, I enjoyed the simplicity of good old fashion fun with my besties. My casual attire provided the style I needed to ring in my 30th year and the comfort to do all the activities I wanted for my big day. So, think about these two questions, but most importantly, figure out what you want to do: whether it be a big bash or something more mellow and casual.  Which ever option fills your heart with joy is the answer.  Just always make sure you're following your heart, Fashionista. Wishing you a fabulous upcoming birthday and a beautiful week.
