Hi my loves! I truly hope you had amazing weekends! Mine was one of the best I have had in a long time. As I told y’all in my last post, my birthday was Thursday and I just want to thank you so much for all of your sweet wonderful wishes. I had so much fun with my fiance, sister, best friend, and friends! They really went all out to make me feel special and thinking about it just puts a big, goofy smile on my face. 
My fiance took me out to dinner at one of my favorite Italian restaurants, Carraba’s, and we got all dressed up and it was so romantic and cute. I took my best friend Nikki to check out a potential wedding venue on Friday and to a few of my favorite thrifting spots. After that, we all went to dinner that night, with my sis, fiance’s sis, and my college girlfriend who drove down to surprise me! After dinner, all of us went out! I am so blessed to have such loving and caring people in my life and I cherish each moment and laugh shared with them this weekend. From morning mimosa’s, to a random dollar movie pit stop, to my best friend making seafood gumbo for us, hands down this was one of my best birthdays to date! If you follow me on Instagram, then you may or may not have been flooded with pictures from my birthday weekend, so please join me there
Style Guide: Try layering your fur vest over an over-sized chambray button down to add texture and contrast to your outfit!

    It's been awhile since I've stopped over at these parts!
    But, no surprise! nothing's changed – you still have amazing style and an equally amazing blog.
    I'm loving the fur vest. I'm always looking for new ways to style mine; but it seems that it's just an awkward cut!

    You though, my dear, look fabulous. loving this great look!
