Birthday Girl


American Eagle Sweater, Paige Denim Jeans, H&M Belt, Hat & Trench, Michael Kors Watch, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Joe Fresh Sunnies, Oasis Pumps, BaubleBar Necklace (again!) 

Today is my birthday friends! While I've moped around all last week, depressed about getting older, this week, I've come to realize that that's pretty ridiculous. It's not like I can do anything about it anyway! Besides, being 25 was pretty great! I finally started to feel like an adult (rather than a lost university graduate), started living with my boy, and settled into a "real" job. And I started this blog when I was 25! If 25 was better than 24, than 26 can only better than 25 right? I think the best has yet to come and I can't wait to see what year 26 of my life brings.

Are you tired of seeing that BaubleBar necklace yet? I swear, I'll try to retire it for a couple days! Is it weird to say that it's my most comfortable necklace? The flat chain totally makes me forget it's even on, and it never needs adjusting! Three cheers for fuss-free necklaces!

Happy Thursday friends!

Linking up with Mix and Match Fashion, Working Girl with StyleSpotlight of the Week and Three-fer Thursday today!

  2. Love that sweater! Happy Birthday, too! 26 was definitely the age I realized that I wasn't in my "college age 20's" anymore. (Even though, obviously there are lots of people old than that in college...but you know what I mean ;) I'm with you though, life gets better and better every year!

  17. Happy belated birthday, Annick! I remember, turning 26 wasn't my favourite... but in the end, 26 was a pretty good year :) And as long as you have lovely clothes to wear, things can't be that bad ;) I love this casual look, those Paige jeans fit you like a glove.

  20. Happy belated birthday! :) I hope it was a good one!

    I remember feeling sad about turning 24-25-26... I think mid 20s are confusing. I turned 28 in August and I LOVE it. Late 20s is where it's at! You have a lot to look forward to - life gets better and better :) Personally, I'm looking forward to 30s and 40s now (something that used to sound like a nightmare a few years ago)

    P.S. Your outfit is gorgeous, as always!
