one year older.....

.....and a lot wiser, smarter, more sparkly, vivacious and excited for my year as a 29 year-old.

So as I thought of ways to celebrate my impending birthday, I made a pretty extensive list on my iPhone called "presents to buy myself." Pretty straight to the point.

It's been a list I've been building and dreaming of items to add to my wardrobe since the summer time. Just a handy list of shoes, clothes and purses I add to my Pinterest page or something I read about that I must have. Or dream about buying one day.

And on this iPhone list includes.....
  • Tory Burch flats

  • Louis Vuitton Neverfull

  • Tory Burch clutch

  • Alexander McQueen scarf
Because I don't have an unlimited bank account and as my dad says, "Money doesn't grow on trees," I can't pick up everything on my wish list at once but I love having a list to work toward. To reward and treat myself. Treat yo self!

Off my list, I chose a nice piece of jewelry to rock on my wrist alone or with a group of other bracelets depending on my mood. Accessories are key my blog friends. Absolutely key to any outfit.

I can tell time now!

Happy 29th birthday to  me!

Happy Birthday!

AND 100 times YES on the J Brand skinny jeans! These were my BEST "in my 30s, grown up" purchase EVER. I wore them so much that I actually wore out the crotch.

When the inevitable happens, use Denim Therapy, for serious. They saved my bottom. Literally. It's another great "big girl" decision to extend the life of your expensive jeans. ;)

Love everything on your list and hope you get it :) Also love Mel's recommendation on Denim Therapy- I had a pair of 7s on my closet floor ready to be thrown out tomorrow morning until I saw that comment- I'm going to give them a try!
