Birthday {Part I}

Hi 🙂 
It was my birthday 🙂
I received the most luscious bouquet of hot pink and light pink roses 🙂
My family and friends really went all out to make sure it was a special day…sending flowers, gifts from afar, cards, and bringing pink champagne and presents. They really indulged me, and are ever-so-good to me. Thank you, dears, for making my day so special 🙂

My brother calls this my Neopolitan Ice Cream skirt. I call it my Birthday Tutu! I’ve worn it for my birthday before (see this old-as-the-hills post). It’s just so perfectly pinkly party-y! I wore it with my grandmother’s crinoline underneath. Can you believe she used to wear it under her poodle skirts in the 50s?! I love it so much it’s not even funny.

The feather headpiece was a birthday gift a few years ago from one of my very best friends. I love it so much and have worn it on many birthdays because it is just so birthday-y! I wore some vintage costume jewelry earrings, and my polka-dot tights too.
A birthday only comes once a year, so it definitely requires some party clothes! Don’t you agree? 
Check out PART TWO here, including my green-ombre cake with pink frosting!

Ballerina Outfit and Donuts

I rather love that title. Two most wonderful things: a ballet-inspired outfit and a donut. I’m happy today, you guys, because it’s  just a happy day. And because last night, I learned that today was National Donut Day (I literally accidentally just typed Natalie Donut Day, hahahaha). Then I went to bed and forgot. But oh, my subconscious, my subconscious wisely didn’t let me forget. I woke up and thought, “I know I usually keep these gluten-free donuts for Saturdays, but I want one today!” and even took a picture of it. A few hours later, Tumblr alerted me again to the fact that today is National Donut Day. Way to go, subconscious!
