“Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest,” said Father Larry Lorzenoni. If you don’t get the joke…go reread it and ponder on that before you continue with the rest of this post. This summer there have been lots of birthdays. I just looked at my Facebook page and seven of my friends were born August 1st. Shout-out to those people—even though I may not know four of you and how we became “friends” on FB. There have also been new births that cause for celebration! In the last month alone, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal baby and Kim Kardashian and Kayne West’s want-to-be-royal baby have come into the world. My hope is that maybe one day his Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge and North West will throw a British-American birthday bash together. With so many birthdays happening, how can we not celebrate? Whether you’re going to dinner for your best friend’s birthday or partying for a baby you don’t even know, your outfit needs to be fashionable and fun!
This Fashionista is dressed perfectly for a birthday bash. Her polka-dotted dress is adorable. I am obsessed with bold printed dresses. Whether it has flowers, stripes or polka-dots, prints are a great way to make a statement. When wearing these bold prints, let that be the focus of your ensemble. Other pieces and accessories should be on the simpler side.
She pairs her polka-dotted dress with a studded denim vest, brown belt, studded sandals and an amazing cross-body bag that happened to match the wall perfectly. These accessories add flair to her outfit without being overbearing. My favorite part of her ensemble is her vest. Denim vests add a vintage vibe to any outfit. Without a doubt, this Fashionista is dressed and ready to throw on one of those awful cone-shaped party hats and have a great time!
One Simple Change: Her vest and sandals are great for a birthday celebration. Swap the shoes for a pair of heels and the vest for a blazer to transform this outfit into something that could be worn for an interview.
