It’s my birthday weekend.

I know what you are thinking…”a weekend?! You get a whole weekend?!”

And my answer to that is YES, YES I DO.  And here’s why:

Growing up as a Christmas baby was never fun.  And although my birthday isn’t technically on Christmas, its close enough that my special day would typically get lost amongst the decking of the halls, and the fa-la-la-la-la-ing, and the eggnog, and the caroling.  So I would (read: still do) always have more than one celebration…just so everyone could stop for 2.393022 seconds from their Christmas insanity and rejoice in the fact that I was born.  And 31 years later, I am still a birthday brat.

Tonight kicks off the festivites….and as you can tell from the picture above, I will be painting the town, well, PINK!

And what better way to start the weekend than with another Christmas giveaway?  JewelMint (the much more sparkly sister to StyleMint and ShoeMint) is offering a jewelry credit to use on their site!

  • Alyssa

    love the pink! looking stunning as always

  • Rebekah

    Love the entire outfit as usual but that coat is so fun! You could wear as much jewelry as you wanted and it would look perfect!!

  • Emily Herman

    For the holidays I would wear a lot of black and then add colorful accent pieces such as these earrings!

  • Alissa

    LOOOVE Jewelmint! Just got my third piece! 😉

    I love to accessorize my holiday outfit with jewelry by first focusing on one statement piece – whether it be a necklace, bold earrings or stacks of bracelets. I’m LOVING chunky bold necklaces with a holiday dress!


  • Penny Pincher Fashion

    Love this bright coat – the bow makes it so fun and those pumps are perfect!!

  • Lisa Dion

    I like to accessorize with lots of sparkles and colors

  • Elanna

    I’m a Christmas baby too, mine is on the 19th.
    I would pair my holiday and or birthday sparkly outfit with mixed metal jewlery. I”m all about the mixed metals these days.

  • Emily Fogarty

    Well obvi the holidays are all about glitz and glam….so I love to pile on those baubles. I like to sparkle just like the New Years Eve Ball in Times Square….because even that is chic and ultra fab. Le Duh.

  • Kristen

    i would wear an amazing statement necklace with my holiday outfit!

  • Colleen

    Love this birthday outfit! My birthday is also this weekend and I feel your pain on being a Christmas babe. Jewelry is the best way to diversify your look and be able to wear pieces from you wardrobe in a completely different way. I love to have one bold accessory and a ton of little pops of sparkle!

  • Annie

    I love plain tees with big statement necklaces!

  • Noelle

    I can’t get on the pink/red trend

  • Madison

    I love this look – it might even be something I could pull off! I am a big fan of mixing Pinks and Reds together, and the shoe is the perfect touch of that. By the way – I ordered those pants on sale at Macy’s and you’re SO right, they are really cute but feel like I am wearing PJ’s or sweats! Perfection. 🙂

  • Andrea

    Love the pink + red!

  • Traci Hall

    Such a cute coat! Love the color and the big bow! 🙂

    The sunglasses are amazing.

  • Katey Warren

    Love a subtle black ensemble with big, bold layered necklaces/other baubles for the holidays!

  • Meg

    For a night out with the boyfriend during the holidays, I like to accessorize a sexy dress with glam chandelier earrings and a flashy cocktail ring. For low-key family events, I like to accessorize with earrings or a necklace in fall/winter hue like forest green or deep navy!

  • Abbie

    I love to have fun with my holiday jewelery. I tend to be more bold and wear more than I normally do.

  • Leah Watkins

    I love love love all the Mint sisters but who doesnt need a little added sparkle in their life around the Holidays! SO for me I would go with a knock out statement necklace to really shine bright during my holiday festivities 🙂

  • Alyssa

    This outfit is stunning! Perfect for birthday celebrating! Also, I love you how you kept the jewelry simple to allow the pink to really stand out!



  • Kristin T

    A big statement necklace makes an outfit look amazing.

  • Kalli

    I absolutely love everything about this, especially the sunglasses and pink coat, which are so up my alley. I actually already have a darling pink winter coat, which I always get compliments on whenever I wear it. Cold winter days in Texas can be especially dreary (like today in SA!), so nothing is better to perk up your day than a hot pink coat!

    I like wearing jewelry that pops, but doesn’t take away from my outfit.

  • Katie

    Wow I love the dark hair! My favorite style is to wear a pop of clor for the shoes with a more neutral or all black outfit!

  • Katie

    Love this…… Just moved to Boston and people here really don’t wear color like us Texas girls. But.. You gotta turn heads one way or another, right?! 😉

    I love the entire out (one including the pink coat). Perfection with your hair and makeup. I love the lipstick color – can you tell me what color/brand that is? Its hard to find the perfect pink.

    Happy Birthday!

    I always go for the statement necklaces when it’s a holiday outfit. I like the yellow gold and fabulous jewels look! It’s always so complimentary! xo

  • Ashley

    I feel your Christmas-baby pain, doll! I was born on New Year’s Eve, so as a kid my birthday often got lost in the shuffle. Also- no chance of a super summery pool party birthday.

    Now that I’m 21+, the NYE birthday has gotten infinitely better… 😉

    Love the outfit; what a killer coat!


  • Helen

    I just got a jewel mint delivery in the mail today! But this coat….I LOVE IT to pieces. And the shoes of course.

  • emily johnston

    Jewelry can change the whole vibe of an outfit. I use it to make a basis dress fancier for a party or even boost my mood with something sparkly!

  • natasha

    Jewelry shouldn’t compete with your holiday dress…so I like to wear a simple, but sparkly, pair of stud earrings! 🙂
