birthday birthday birthday!

It's my birthday today, readers, and even though it started off pretty rough, I'm hoping it will get better. Since yesterday afternoon, I've been enduring some painful headaches and jaw aches that came out of nowhere. I woke up this morning with worse headaches and jaw aches, and now I also have a sore throat to top it all off. *angryfistshake*

Here's to hoping that I can murder the aches with Advil bombs.

And now, the OOTD:

jackie cardigan, j.crew
separate spaces skirt, anthropologie
cami, cotton on
woven belt, mom's
tights, hue
glitter flats, steve madden
monocle necklace, gift
ring, target
bangle, kate spade



Some days I can't muster up much more than a skirt and cardigan, so you'll have to forgive my looking to "ordinary" (and even repeating tights!) on my big day. That's what trying to get dressed when it feels like there's a thunderstorm in your brain will do to you!

BUT, I know the day will get better!

In the meantime, don't forget to enter my birthday giveaway, which ends this Friday!

    Random birthday fact: do you know your b-day is the same day that Pocohontas married English colonist John Rolfe?

  18. Happy Birthday. You look beautiful and anyone who is talented enough to match her cardigan with her nail polish when she is sick clearly transcends ordinary!

  19. Happy Birthday! So sorry you woke up with jaw/headaches. I had the same due to me clenching my jaw while sleeping when under stress, so I had to have a mouth guard made. Awesome, give me headgear and a case of acne and I will feel like I'm in Jr. High all over again. ;) I hope it gets better for you!
