This past Wednesday was my birthday which means birthday week just ended today. As I sit here typing I am quite le tired. I'm not a big birthday person but when people want to celebrate another year of you living - you can't say no. On my actual birthday I was treated to lots of cupcakes, streamers, and pizza at work. At night my sweet boyfriend and friends planned a surprise dinner for me at the restaurant where they film the bar scenes for New Girl. I die. Then last night we danced the night away like the biggest bunch of dorks you'd ever seen. Between me and three of my best friends, our birthdays are all within about three weeks of each other. Hence, birthday season. I am happy to pass my birthday crown and Hello Kitty sash on to the next gal. Cheers to another year!

Ain't life grand? Well not always, but this dress sure is. The royal blue has got me reaching far out of my comfort zone with the beyond bold color and deep, DEEP neckline. But don't get used to this sort of thing -- black, white, gray I miss you and will be back soon! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Last night I was lucky enough to go to Vanessa Mooney's house for a get together thrown by her and the lovelies of For Love & Lemons. Lots of wine and girl talk which is always fun. And I wish everyone could see her insanely amazing house. Beyond words how perfectly decorated it is. And an entire room dedicated as your closet? I mean...

Time has been absolutely flying by. I can't believe we are already well into February. I usually feel pretty neutral when it comes to a new year starting, but this year is different for me. A few things have changed but so much more change is on the horizon. I guess you could say that I feel like I've turned a corner. This year will involve a lot of growing up. Peter Pan syndrome is a real thing. No more hiding in my comfort zone. I want to make this year a successful one in all facets of my life. I sense this same sentiment in many people around me so it's encouraging to know I'm not alone. Isolation is also a real thing. So if you're having a coming of Jesus moment like myself, I'm excited for you and I to make this year our bitch!

I don't like to put myself into any specific category when it comes to style. Limitations just ain't my thang. I love dressing grungy and sometimes a bit vintage, librarian-esque. But at my core lives a boho, desert princess that cannot be contained! This outfit is very me - maxi with a slit, bell sleeves, a splash of midriff and little black boots (duh). My lovely skirt is by Flynn Skye which quickly became a favorite line of mine last year after a certain romper stole my heart.  Oh young love.

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and cheers to an even better week! Also, Super Bowl wha?
