Don’t you wish you could go back in time ten years ago when having a themed birthday party was acceptable? A Disney princess or a Dora the Explorer themed party may not be the best idea to throw in college. Even though those days are over, that doesn’t mean birthdays should be any less fun. Birthdays are still and will forever be a time to celebrate with friends and family. Having a birthday party in college could be a night out with friends, or a gathering at someone’s house. It really doesn’t matter how you celebrate your or your friend’s birthday, just as long as you celebrate. In the wise words of Oprah Winfrey, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
An important part of any party is what you choose to wear. We can no longer show up in our Cinderella dress and plastic high heels. This Fashionista has put together an ensemble that’s perfect for any type of birthday party. Great for spring, her pastel color palette is feminine and super on-trend for this season. Pastel pieces are currently in every store that I have gone in lately. She makes her outfit flirty but also sweet with her mint skirt, that she added tulle under to give it volume.
The simplicity of this outfit is what makes it truly stand out. This Fashionista is a picture-perfect example of the saying “less is more.” She pairs her skirt with a light pink chiffon top. The color combination reminds me of cotton candy and who doesn’t want that at their birthday party?
She accessorizes her sugary sweet ensemble with a small book bag, simple silver jewelry and a pair of nude wedges. I love how she chose a book bag rather than a purse. Her choice of bag is not only unique, but it gets rid of the hassle of having to keep up with a huge purse for the entire day. College birthday parties should be just as fun as they were when we were five. Take notes from this Fashionista and be ready to celebrate in style.
One Simple Change: Her mint mini skirt is great for any party. Replace it with a pencil skirt to transform this ensemble into an outfit that would be appropriate for an interview.
