the next morning the table looked just as pretty with a few new gifts:)

I am finally sharing some birthday photos! My birthday was February 11 and I had the best day, as always, thanks to my family. : )

I am so excited to share pictures from my birthday last week! It was the best day:) My family always goes above and beyond to make me feel loved and special on my birthday (and everyday, really) and this year was no exception. My sister spent I don’t even know how many hours making a tassel garland and skipped class to spend the day with me. My mom made me strawberry waffles for breakfast and also spent the day with me. My grandma took everyone to dinner and my other sister sent these (which I love!) and even FaceTimed when it was time to sing happy birthday, make a wish and blow out my fancy heart sparkler wand candle.

These leggings were definitely meant for the birthday girl or maybe someone celebrating on New Year’s Eve. The top isn’t something I would normally wear, but I thought I would try it after seeing a picture of someone else pair it with sequin pants. I knew I wanted to wear at least a little bit of color but wasn’t sure I liked the shoes with the leggings until I found the perfect little belt to tie the whole outfit together. It is so much fun to dress up and even though I won’t be wearing these pants very often, I think they were worth it to feel like the birthday girl (even though my family pretty much takes care of that on their own). :)

dresses for the birthday girl

A birthday is the perfect excuse to dress up. For this one day it is all about you so why not indulge in sequins, gems, and bows? I love all of these dresses and think they would be so fun to wear! I actually have a skirt very similar to the one below that I wore while celebrating my birthday a few years ago. I am almost always in a dress and oddly enough, I won’t be wearing one today, but I will be rocking some serious sequins. It’s my party and I’ll shine if I want to:*)
