My birthday was this past Friday, July 7, so naturally I celebrated all weekend long. (Truth be told, the rest of the month is fair game for celebration.) See more of one of my favorite birthday Outfit of the Days to date after the jump!
“You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.” Psalm 65:11
I am blessed beyond measure, and each birthday, each new year of life, is a reminder of how God really shows up and shows out time and time again. That alone calls for celebration, and that’s just what I did over the weekend! On Saturday, I hosted my third-annual birthday thrift crawl — including stops at three of my favorite thrift shops and a super-good lunch spot in Long Beach — in style, with an all-black-everything ensemble. You can see me in full-on thrift mode at Treasure Hunt in one of the photos above. I kept things fairly subdued with the plain black spaghetti-strap tank but had to stunt just a smidge with the midi tulle skirt. Feeling especially regal for my Jesus Year, I decided to rock a crown and metallic gold cat-eye sunglasses to complete my birthday Outfit of the Day. I got rave reviews and was treated like a queen! Happy birthday to me!
