Happy Birthday to Me!

I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.
-Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic

It was my birthday last Saturday and as has become tradition, dinner and cake were on the agenda. This year I opted for cupcakes and since even my baked goods must be fashionable, I bypassed the traditional flavours and opted for apple pie, pink lemonade, strawberry daiquiri and s’mores from Ultimate Cupcakes by Intimate Catering. I’ve since decided that cupcakes should be a food group.

Dinner took place at the Beach House Bar and Restaurant on the island’s West Coast and that’s where all the photos were taken except the last four which were shot at Limegrove Lifestyle Centre.

Now on to the outfit!

You know how sometimes you’re in a store just browsing and something just calls your name? That’s what happened with this dress. It was on sale (45 per cent off) and it was the only one on the rack. It totally looked like me even on the hanger and when I tried it on, it fit like a dream so I had no choice but to get it. I knew immediately that it would be my “birthday dress”.

The shoes (last seen here) are my favourite and most worn pair of heels since they are actually quite comfortable. And their simplicity was ideal for this dress. The clutch is Bijoux Terner.

And the ear cuff? Well I finally have ear cuffs lol. I’ve always liked their innate edginess so I got two when I was in Scotland and now I’m as happy as can be. I also picked up the rings on that trip.

I passed a series of panels like this just as I was about to leave Limegrove so I snapped a photo of the one I identified with most.

It feels like just the other day that I was excited about the end of September but already, there’s just a week left in October. Off I go to make the most of it!
