"I don't know about you, but I'm feelin 20, tooooo"


                     THANKS TO MY AMAZING BEST FRIEND FOR MAKING ME THE BEST BDAY CAKE EVER


                      Blouse (Nordstrom Rack), Sequin Leggings (ASOS), Wedge Hightops (Dorothy Perkins), Earrings (Kohls)


                     Leather Shirt and Polka Dot Skirt (JCP), Wedges (Steve Madden), Dream Bracelet (Bday Gift from Gustavo)



ITS OFFICIAL! I survived my first week of being 20. My birthday is by far, my favorite holiday. IAnd because my birthday was on a Friday, it was the perfect excuse to have a week (yes, a week) full of friends, shopping, eating out, and presents. And I have to say, I am one lucky gal. My roomie completely trashed decorated our apartment with balloons and streamers galore, I had the fanciest birthday cake I've ever had the privilege of eating, and I got some pretty spectacular gifts (including bracelets on bracelets, and 90s kids cd's).

The first outfit was my "school birthday" outfit on Thursday, since I don't have Friday classes. I was just waiting for the perfect chance to bust out these leggings. A bit of a birthday present to myself. But really, aren't they fabulous? CLEARANCE Y'ALL.

The next pics are my actual birthday outfit; had to breakout something a little.... Adult? Twirly? Special? Leather-y? Yup. Needless to say I freaked over this leather sleeved emerald green shirt at JCP for under $20!! And nothing makes a more perfect backdrop than my balloon filled doorway.

Despite all the birthday magic, this year had a different undertone than the rest. 20 (or grandma status according to all my friends....thanks guys) just has a certain weight to it. No longer a teenager, I am truly an adult now. Which just means that the real world is getting that much closer. Its something I still have very mixed feelings about. So I guess its time to start moving my life in the direction of my choosing.



THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE MY BIRTHDAY (WEEK) THE BEST ONE YET.

XO, Madison
