birthday festivities!

I can’t believe I’m 28 years old already! My, my, how time does fly. I had a great birthday weekend with friends and family. I have my wonderful hubby to thank for this as he planned all the food and fun and chauffeured me around all weekend!

I wanted to share some cute outfits and moments from the weekend:

I was especially excited to write this post and show these pictures because even though I’ve had this Valentino dress for several years, this was the very FIRST time I have ever worn it! It was such an awesome find ($70 on clearance at TJ Maxx) and I had been wanting to wear it but never could quite find an occasion. I do love the orange/red poppy color and the beading! I am not usually a fan of spaghetti straps but I made an exception for this amazing dress!

Plus I also wanted to show off my amazing Melissa/Vivienne Westwood cherry pumps. My hubby bought them for me from ebay for Christmas/Birthday present and I hadn’t worn them yet.
