Outfit Post: Black and Yellow

This past weekend I celebrated my 31st birthday with jazz bars, fancy dinners, late night disco bowling, and a surprise singing telegram (Thanks, Margo).

I am not one of those people who dreads birthdays (although now I dread singing telegrams). Balloons, champagne, presents - other than a few extra wrinkles - what’s not to like? Besides, I hear 31 is the new 21.

In honor of turning another year older, I treated myself to this yellow Zara jacket. When I saw it back in January, this mood lifting coat was a beacon of sunshine in the middle of a dark, dark winter. I resisted the urge to buy it then, but caved when I saw it in the store last week. If you can’t justify a joy inducing purchase on your birthday, when can you?

I also picked up these badass shoes from the Detroit resale shop, Thrift on the Ave. I stopped by on my birthday and in a serendipitous moment, found them dangling in the window, in my exact size, and at more than half the price of what they cost in the store. Talk about a birthday miracle. It was totally meant to be.

So far, I'm rocking 31.
