What I'm Wearing:
J. Crew Factory necklace and bracelet
I turned 30 this week and for my birthday, my parents got me this Orla Kiely dress and a purse (upcoming post on that later!). My parents know me far too well :)
Not only is the print on this dress unique and gorgeous, but the back has a cutout detail that I definitely wanted to show off. So I decided to attempt the high bun that's pretty popular right now. After several attempts, YouTube views, hairpins, hairspray, and cutting up an old sock, I finally achieved the look I wanted. After watching several YouTube videos, this was the one I found to be the easiest to use and yielded the best results:
This birthday was made even more special by my husband, who thew me a surprise ORLA KIELY themed birthday party.
Just look at these awesome Orla Kiely cupcakes he had made!
My little boy got in on the action early and devoured one right away (look at some of the remnants at the corner of his mouth :)
This was definitely so special to me and I was beyond excited that my husband did this for me.
And by the way, the cupcakes were delicious :)
Some of the most special and important people in my life.
And here's the man who made it all happen. I love you so much! By the way, he's started a blog, too. It's definitely different from mine to say the least, but if you're interested in the Bible, Quran, or Torah, please check it out here!
