Today is my birthday! This year will be the very last of my twenties, and hopefully that decade will go out with a bang.
Cardigan: Gap Outlet; blouse: Liberty of London for Target; skirt: The Limited; earrings: Kohl's; belt: Loft; wedges: Steve Madden via Marshall's
My twenties have been filled with many changes: I went to Paris, graduated college, got married, got my master’s degree, started teaching, got a dog, started a blog, bought a house, and decided to leave teaching, all in nine years. For my last year as a twenty-something, I hope to add ‘find a fulfilling career that I love’ to the list.
Since it’s my birthday and I have some birthday money already burning a hole in my pocket, I’m going to share some of my birthday wishes with you.
A Kindle. As a “real” book lover, I’ve been holding out on this one for some time. But the convenience factor (and yes, the “cool gadget” factor) is starting to make me a convert.
A polka dotted pencil skirt. This one from J. Crew is a little out of my price range, but it serves as my inspiration.
Bright shorts. I’ve already discussed this.
Finally, one of my favorite bloggers recently opened up an online jewelry shop, Oh Poppy, filled with beautiful earrings and necklaces. I’d love this gorgeous Sparkle Necklace—it’s the type that I can imagine wearing with everything.
Of course, this list is incomplete. Thanks to Pinterest, sample sale emails, and fashion blogs, my wishlist never seems to end.
What’s at the top of your wishlist right now?
