So this is it, my beloved birthday outfit! I spent such a long time searching for the perfect pieces to complement each other, it was my 21st birthday after all! When I came across the Going Tulle Be Lovely skirt I was smitten, but a little discouraged because of the reviews. I decided to go ahead and purchase it anyway on a whim, because I believe that every girl needs a nice fluffy skirt in her closet. While it does run a little big, and isn't as fluffy as I'd hoped I still really like it. It's like the grown-up version of a tutu. I felt fancy but not too fancy for the pizza place we were having dinner at.
I had something called The White Album which was uhmazing. White sauce, mozzarella, onions, arugula, truffle oil makes for a yummy pizza. Almost all of my family came (a few people didn't, but I learned later that week why...don't worry I'll share!) and my mom made me an adorable owl cake. She's got a hidden talent for cake making/decorating. It was so much fun to have all of my friends and family gathered in a tiny pizza joint, laughing, eating and overhearing everyone's conversations because we were so crammed in. Stephen, Dakota and I ended the night by piling in to his new-old truck that only has a bench seat. I was right in the middle of my two favorite people, and at that moment I didn't want to be anywhere else in the world.
