My Birthday Outfit!

This past Wednesday, the 24th, I turned 27. I know, scary!!! Sometimes I don't know where the time has gone. I had a wonderful day.  I went to my classes, stopped in at TjMaxx and found an awesome mirror on sale, and got wonderful birthday wishes from people. It's easy to not look forward to each birthday every year, especially when you are twenty something. You may feel like you aren't accomplishing things or not up to the speed of what other people your age are doing. Well, I'm slowly learning this myself too, but forget all of those so called benchmarks of where you are supposed to be in life, what you're supposed to have accomplished and so on. I say this because those are all "supposed to's" created by society and you need to live life according to your own path. As I said before, I am still learning too, but the more you do what you want, at what time you want, the happier you will be. Last year, I wasn't in a place where I wanted to be in my life, nor thought I would be at 26.  Towards the end of the year last year, I decided to resign from my job and go back to school to pursue my second degree, still in the design field, because that is where my passion lies.  It has truly been a liberating experience. I am very hopeful that good things will arise from it, they already have! If you are struggling with not being where you thought you'd be, then I strongly encourage you to change your life for the better.  I wouldn't have dreamed that I'd be where I am now, last year, and it's all due to choices I've made.  People grow at different speeds.  Sometimes you need to walk through the storm so that it can change you into the person you are meant to be.  I am overall a much happier person because I decided to take control of the things that I could control in life.  If something isn't working there is always another option. Forget society's expectations. Don't waste your life living in someone else's idea of what life should look like.

Big Gold Statement Necklace

While I stopped into Gordmans yesterday, I picked up those gorgeous booties (in my last post) as well as this beautiful statement necklace. As you know, I'm a sucker for statement necklaces, the bigger the better in my case.  I love the boldness of this one and the metal is so bright and it has a hammered effect. I think it looks fabulous against this hot pink. Find it HERE!

Fall Booties

I stopped into Gordmans today looking for summer clearance, cause this is the time to shop and get all the deals right?! Well, I also wanted to check out the new fall and back to school stuff too. I stumbled upon these gorgeous booties! They make me want fall weather to hurry up and get here so I can wear them. They feature a small heel and zippers on the inside. I went with classic black but they come in a beautiful tan color, which I might have to snag too! They are linked HERE.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous evening!
