A girl’s birthday party is one of the most important events of the year. The designated day is 24 hours under the spotlight where the birthday girl is free to do whatever she pleases. She can even cry, if she wants to. Such power requires a great outfit, so today’s WHAT TO WEAR post provides an example of a birthday party ensemble, which you, my dear reader, can steal for yourself.
The theme of one’s party largely affects one’s outfit choice. This Fashionista hosted a kid-themed birthday party filled with balloons and carefree frolicking. The youthful theme required child-like attire, which is why she dressed herself in frilly socks and a simple skirt and T-shirt combo. The quirky party hat placed jauntily atop her head reminded me of the birthday parties I threw back in the ’90s. I forced all my guests to wear hats like this Fashionista’s and handed out goodie bags filled with stickers, temporary tattoos, candy, bubbles and dinosaur eggs that hatched into tiny toy dinosaurs — the good old days.
If you’re currently missing the golden years of childhood, you can have a kid-themed birthday party as well and dress to match. I mean, if you can’t go back in time and be a kid again, you can at least dress and act like one, right? Follow today’s Fashionista’s footsteps and wear a striped T-shirt and a solid-colored skirt. Don’t forget the frilly socks, balloons and party hat, and, bam, you’re a kid again!
