32 is just perfect already.

In just 4 days, there have been dinner parties, dj booths (with a special DJ…Miss Taryn Manning!), lots of champagne, birthday presents, and too many candles being blown out.

But if there is one thing that makes my birthday feel even more fabulous each year, its finding that perfect birthday outfit that allows me to scream at the top of my lungs, “I’m the birthday princess!”

And when you combine a spray tan, extra dirty hair, a fresh mani/pedi, gold accessories, and a little white dress…..well, that’s one hell of a birthday suit in my book.

Ps. Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes! Your birthday messages made these past couple of days a joy for me!

  • kelly

    I HAD to post! Yes– agree with the others’ comments— we have GOT to have a hair tutorial from you! First of all, LOVE the new shorter cut. Love it so much more than the longer length on the tv show. And your waves are amazing. Please share how you are getting those perfect waves!?! You’ve inspired me not to shampoo every day. I know you’re all about fashion– but you could expand the blog with beauty (hair and makeup) additions to? Just a thought….. Obsessed with your show. Love it.

  • Kayla

    Happy birthday Courtney! LOVE LOVE LOVE your show! So inspiring! : )


  • Lara Baker

    I just gotta say – you inspire me. It sounds so corny, but it’s true. I’m a 46 year old paralegal from El Paso and have dear friends who live in Dallas. Every year when we go visit, my husband and I say – that’s it, we’re moving to Dallas. So, I love watching the show and seeing bits of the Big D. And one day soon, we’ll be moving!

    Anyway – I’ve found myself in a funk regarding my wardrobe and really can’t show my true spunky spirit in a law office full of suits! 🙁 But, watching your show has made me realize that you can let your funky personality live and you’re never too old to wear a great pair of heels!

    Thanks! You rock!


  • C Baker

    Love your show!!! Love your fashion sensibility — and what can I say? I loved the match with Stephan last night on Millionaire Matchmaker. Seems like a great guy and he’s oh so adorable 🙂 (Matt who?)

    I always look forward to Thursday nights — and now I look forward to receiving your posts via email.

    Keep up the great work, Courtney!!

  • ash

    What I like to know is did you go to norway with that guy? I saw the episode of millionaire matchmaker:)

  • Kathryn

    Hi Courtney! I went home today from work sick and was watching TV when your show came on. You talked about your blog and I decided to check it out. It was love at first sight! I then started from the beginning. From the beginning to the last post I was so surprised at how much your blog grew. At the beginning of your blog there were some outfits that personally I wouldn’t wear but the outfits from your latest post I would wear in a heart beat! Congratulations!

  • Colleen

    Courtney! I love your new show! You look beautiful! How do you get your hair to have that wavy look??

  • Andrea

    Hey,I just discovered you and your blog and I absolutely love it! You’re so fun and pretty and…Love to watch your show and love your style! If you ever find a time please come to visit my blog 🙂

  • Jeanie

    Your moves are sick…and so is your HAIR!!! Love..Love..Love your all the pics…. Huge fan!

  • Gretta

    Happy birthday and BIG congrats on “Courtney Loves Dallas” – I wish Bravo had more like you. I would Tweet you, but I hate Twitter, so here is my message in your comments section:) Please remember to utilize the “Delete” and “Block” features on the Twitter – I don’t want you getting the least bit bummed from any of the crazy-negative haters. They all need a time-out and/or spanking, and absolutely do not deserve any kind of response from you. You seem super strong, but the jabs can get to the best of us – usually during PMS. Keep your head up and your hair big (and then please do video hair tutorial of birthday look, because of awesomeness)!

  • Sara

    Is it just me or is your show the most superficial, lame sack of all time? You are extraordinarily obnoxious and average. My word! High-five to that Latin designer who disses you…he’s right!

  • Cherie Gisondk

    You need a fashion talk show or something. I would love to be on too! Lol love ya

  • Cherie Gisondk Check out my little foxy blog too

  • Hannah

    totally just bought that area code necklace…I’m a DFW girl forced to live in Houston (gross!) so my husband can go to law school…I will soon have an ‘817’ around my neck! thank you! LOOOOVE you!!!

  • Jaclyn Hosking

    Absolutely loveee your birthday look. So timeless and chic! You have suddenly become such a fashion inspiration to me!

  • Nina

    You look gorgeous and happy! Happy Belated Birthday!

  • Kelly

    Court, you look gorgeous! I love the layered necklaces!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  • Christi

    I love everything about you! Please do a tutorial on the perfect tease. Help a fellow Texas girl out!

  • Tasha S

    Love your style, love your attitude, and most importantly your love for friends and family. What would be your top 5 go to pieces? As a mother of 3 boys under 6 at the age of 30 I need quick fashion but style that says I still go it! Even if I am running on 2 hours of sleep! Thanks chica

  • Kendra

    Happy birthday Court! You got it going on girl! Loveya

  • Rita

    When “extra dirty hair,” what do you mean? Like, do you and Tori really go 8 days without washing your hair? Does dry shampoo really do the trick of covering the scent, especially if you work out?

  • Bryanna Moore

    I’m just now discovering your amazing blog after seeing you on Bravo! So so happy I did! Dirty hair is the best hair! I love this dress, but may I ask what bra you wore? haha Thank you!!

  • Kimmy

    what shoes did you wear with this dress? i think I may buy it! I also checked out some of the other solace pieces on asos because of this and really liked them. thanks for turning me on to a new brand!!!

  • Deuse Curry
