Jean Jacket & A Belated Birthday Outfit

This month whipped on by, along with my birthday. It was at the very beginning of the month and between the new job, the move, the social dates and my trip to the beach; it got washed over.
My support team in the city couldn't be stronger. Though it's been through a lot of trial, especially in the past 6 month to a year, my true friends are real. They can be honest, they know and love love and we bring a mutual quality to one another's lives. We don't take each other for granted or walk over one another or compete, which is a beautiful kind of love. Isn't it?

To adorn your friends with so much respect, you know when to step down or step up? Which is why I called up one of my best friends, K, the Saturday before my birthday. You see, nothing was planned. The very last thing my mind could think about was organizing my own birthday. The fact of the matter was, one should not be alone on ones birthday. No matter what. With this in mind, my request was simple: nothing flashy, crazy or insane. Perhaps burgers or tacos. When your in your early thirties and it's your birthday, one must also 'Treat Yo Self'.


This is the outfit for work. There was a wardrobe change later in the evening for my Friend-Date night. This outfit was all comfort. It could have been trendy and tight and wildly UNcomfortable but at the last minute, my mind chose happiness. 

This terrifically easy to throw on razor-back dress is from Marshall's. It cost less than twenty bucks and it fits like a glove. It has a slight high-low for us petite ladies. My 5'3 booty decided to go with gladiator flat sandals which are embarrassingly old, worn and perfect. However, should be replaced. The denim jacket is from Old Navy, via Thrift Store. One of my favorite purchases. 

This post makes me want to wear this outfit all over again!

P.S. Please excuse my project sneak peaks! 


  1. I love the wash of that denim. I'm on the hunt for another denim coat to get me through late summer/fall. Might need to go stalk the racks for something gently used.

    1. I will keep an eye out for you! I LOVE my jean jacket. It's a staple during the summer.
