birthday suit

dress: eShakti + added sleeves, won in a giveaway  // shoes: $6, thrifted // belt: part of another skirt from Target

i'm a firm believer that you should always get at least one fabulous outfit just for your birthday. 
ever since i was little i got a new dress or favorite outfit to wear on my special day. 
and i'm all about traditions, so why stop at 25?? 

this dress is just amazing. serious. 
it is by far the best outfit choice of all my 25 birthdays. 

it's still weird to even think that i'm 25 now. 
but as long as i have great clothes surrounding me {and family of course ;)}, i think this will be a pretty good year. :)

[and yes, i'm still celebrating even though it was a week ago. birthday month is a real thing.]
