Weekend Review: Another Year of Style!

This weekend was my bee-day! Thank you to all of you who wished me happy birthday via twitter & facebook.  I had a quiet birthday celebration on Saturday with my man, just us two, some dinner & some quality shopping time. I've never really been one to have big crazy birthday parties or celebrations, so this year was no different. The one year I planned and threw a party for my bday I got sick! Although I had fun, I didn't enjoy it as I should have.  Sometimes less is more, I try to keep that mentality in my style as well. I don't always like to really get dressed up, unless I have to. Being it was my birthday I did want to look cute, but be comfy and not wear my usual jeans or other causal attire.  I wore one of my Evans dresses I had recently bought, and thought it would be perfect for my bday.  Here I go with another floral print, it's still a subtle floral, but floral none the less. I also wore my new favorite "army" style jacket.  I saw this style jacket on a few other bloggers as well.  I loved  how Big Beautyful Mess mixed it up with dresses & skirts. I created my own version, although I must admit the inspiration came from BBM's Lucky Challenge. So go check her out to see what I am talking about.

Jacket: Army Utility Jacket from The Gap
Tights: Footless tights from Avenue
Sandals: Mossimo wedge woven sandals from Target
Purse: Signature Optic from Coach
Earrings & Necklace: Cookie Lee (I ditched the pearls didn't like them after all)
