If you have been following me along for the past couple of years, then you probably know by now that my birthday is exactly one week before Christmas….
…and I despise it.
Granted, I can’t be angry that my parents decided to have one magical moment exactly 9 months before Santa arrives. I don’t blame them for my December birthday being overlooked….instead, I blame all the people who overlook it but giving me a joint gift! So in my attempt at birthday/christmas retaliation, I become the most obnoxious birthday brat…and that brattiness all begins with selecting the most perfect birthday outfit!
I always want that look to appear effortless…you know the look, the “Oh this? Oh I just threw this dress on, and happened to grab the jacket on the way out the door, and and I could’ve worn sky high heels, but these over the knee boots are just super cool girl.” (Umm, yeah, it’s not actually that simple, believe it or not!)
My dress shopping started at Nordstrom, and after trying on every party dress they had, I chose this one….perfecting the rocker girl/birthday princess look from head to toe. The tutu effect definitely adds to the “birthday princess” concept, without me having to wear a crown to remind everyone that its MY NIGHT!
Do you treat your birthday dress shopping as seriously as I do?!
*Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post and helping me celebrate my birthday in style!
