Another year, another 29th birthday! With a toddler and newborn, I really wasn't expecting much, but it turned out to be more than I ever could have wished for.
My husband surprised me with a wine club membership (yay!), beautiful peonies and a steak dinner to die for. The next night, my friends gathered at Bayou Wine Garden for rosé and cake in the courtyard. I was blown away by the generosity of the wonderful people in my life.
As the birthday girl, I wanted something fun and bold for my special night. I've been hesitant to try the off-the-shoulder trend since I'm on the busty side... and especially since I've been nursing my newborn. So, this maxi dress from the trendy online boutique PinkBlush was a gamble. Based on the compliments I received all evening, I think that gamble paid off!
The ruffle makes the look so easy to wear. You don't have to worry about lumps and bumps from your strapless bra, because the ruffle hides everything! The floral print with bright red, blue and pink hues are eye-catching. Not to mention, the $68 price tag makes the frock super affordable.
I paired the dress with a delicate gold lariat necklace, gold and navy earrings from my mother and a brown leather belt with rope detail. It was perfect for a hot summer night and I felt truly fabulous!
