Birthday bore

Flower cutout top c/o New Dress / Houndstooth skirt from TJ Maxx / Crystal necklace from Banana Republic

I'm not a fan of the question "what are you doing for your birthday". I kind of feel like any answer that doesn't include balloons, pretty cakes, party shenanigans, or copious amounts of alcohol is considered boring. But that's just the way I like my birthdays - relatively boring.

All I want to do is collect my birthday freebies and get a chance to wear pretty things. And that's just what I had on Saturday. I sat at a Starbucks with my Venti drink with an unnecessary amount of customizations. Then, dolled myself up, and went for dinner with the boyfriend in a nice little local restaurant where I got some free cake, and best of all, nobody sang.

Here's to another year of being older. Now get off my lawn.

Follow on:


  1. Happy belated birthday! Your hair is looking mighty fine here. Cute top too! :)

  4. You look beautiful. I love your top.

    I hate the what are you doing on your birthday question too. My birthday is always "boring"

  5. That's sort of how I celebrate birthdays - I don't like people making a fuss! A nice quite evening out sounds like a great way to ring in a new age!
    Happy birthday!
    Also, I adore your top! :]

  8. love this outfit. especially the details of the top cut outs, so gorgeous. Also I agree, the birthday hooplah is all too much. To me it's just another great reason to get all dressed up

  9. Oh my gosh, right? I'm the same way about my own birthday! Mine's easy going and celebrated just by my family and consists of opening gifts, a nice home cooked dinner, and cake. And that's exactly how I like it! We're the same person hahaha.

    That skirt is absolutely adorable. I love how cute you made these neutrals look.

  10. haha, I know the feeling! Happy Birthday!

  11. Happy birthday! However you like to celebrate, I think it's fabulous, because it's your day. I'll pass on balloons and most shenanigans, but I do love a good cake!

  12. Happy late Birthday anyways! I had my birthday at holidays this year and there was no singing involved only my favorite tapas bar and lots of food and ice cream! I don't like to consume lots of alcohol on my birthday either and honest I don't really understand why people always think thats the only possible way to spend your birthday.
    Now I really love our outfit! The top is so cute and the cut out details really add something to the whole look!

  14. You look so stunningly beautiful! The cut out detailing on your top is so pretty. And a very happy birthday babe, I whole heartedly agree that keeping birthday's low key can be the best way. Love that you went to Starbucks, something I'd probably do on my birthday too ;) Hope you enjoyed your day and dinner with your boyfriend sounds lovely also <3

  15. Love your outfit, the laser cut tee is perfect over the houndstooth skirt! I like my birthdays like that, also. Quiet, and intimate, but I must admit, I have been celebrating one, and off for a week now. No copious amounts of alcohol, though.
    Happy Birthday!!!!!

  16. Totally agree! I feel like I’m too old to be bothered doing anything for my birthday anymore haha I do love your outfit though & hope you had a great relaxing birthday haha


  17. Thanks so much for your comment, Sabrina! Oh I love to visit busy / touristic places as well but once in a while an "unknown" place makes it really interesting and adventurous.

    Btw. You look so cute in this outfit. Belated Happy Birthday <3 Hope you had a good day x

    Lots of love,

  18. I feel like the older you get, the more you don't have to necessarily get drunk to enjoy your birthday! I totally agree with you girl! Happy late birthday!

    Love, Karina
