OOTD: Earning My Stripes

May 18, 2015

birthday jumpsuit 11a

I’m absolutely loving my new job. Unfortunately, I can’t even so much as look at my phone talk less of updating the blog because I’m super busy all day. Last night, I got around to sorting these pictures (while everyone else was watching the billboard awards).Β 

Took these on my 28th birthday (May 6th) while we were headed out for a quiet meal. There was no big partay or as Instagram calls it, #TURNUP. These days I prefer to turn up on my couch with a glass of Cava and a good series lined up. Thank God for making me feel at 28 like I’ve earned my stripes. Only coming to terms too with saying my age out loud, so yeah I must be getting wiser too lol. I’m one of those people who still feel like it’s their birthday until their zodiac season is over and Taurus season is almost over. WELP! πŸ™ Β #StopTheClocks!

That being said, stripes are one of my favourite trends. I own a myriad of striped clothing. Stay braced for my stripy OOTDs.

Wearing: New Look stripe jumpsuit and Rose Gold mules.
