Today is my birthday. I cannot believe how old I am; it truly blows my mind to think where all the years went. It makes me sad if I think about it too much so I will try not to. Since I am 10 weeks older than my husband, I refuse to believe that I've turned the next age until he has in May. Unfortunately today hasn't been too exciting yet; all I've done so far is wake up at an incredibly early time and deal with Sydney's crazy peak hour transport. I've actually never been to work on my birthday before since last year my birthday was on a Sunday and prior to that I was a student...so this will be interesting. It's also nice to wake up to birthday messages on social media.
I always like to wear a new dress for my birthday. This is one of my birthday presents. It's technically from my husband although I did buy it myself; we usually choose our own gifts to make it easier but the thought is still there. Since I buy so many clothes I like to ensure that any clothes I purchase for my birthday are special or different so they don't just become one of many in my wardrobe. This is a piece which is much more of a formal/dressy/occasion dress and I wear it to all of my of my birthday celebrations. It is of course another dress from Kitten D'Amour. I've had my eye on it for so many months, even when it was a preview prior to it being released. The colour, lace, silhouette and detailing is so pretty. I love the delicate and beautiful nature. To me, it's a princess dress. I resisted buying this for months because it was so expensive, almost $300. But when it came on sale for almost 50% I thought it would be perfect for my birthday. The bag is also a birthday present, I adore these pastel shades together, but more on that later. I hope to film a what I got for my birthday video eventually too.
