Not that I'm excited or anything.
However, there are people in this world who are excited and love me enough to give me presents (which any self-obsessed, materialistic woman's happiness depends on). To prepare for the flood of gift requests I'm sure will pour in, I've compiled a list-- with pictures!!!-- of everything fashionable that will make my birthday amazing (besides World Peace-- get on that shit, people!).
First things first: a mani/pedi. It's essential for relaxation and summer feet exposed from wearing sandals all the time. And I haven't had one done professionally since my wedding nearly 6 years ago.
For my finger nails, I'd love a combo of NARS "Trouville" and Sephora by OPI "Key Lime Pie." I'm thinking candy stripes or make the ring fingers pink and the rest green.
Now for my favorite part: CLOTHES!!! I'm obsessing over tunics at the moment as I own a grand total of zero. For we goddesses of the curvier variety, there's a great website exclusive for sizes 10-28 called SimplyBe. While I have yet to try their clothing, SimplyBe has an in-depth sizing chart for clothes, bras, and shoes, as well as instructions on how to take your measurements (something a goober like myself needs).
A few tunics that have caught my eye...
Frock & Frill Lace Trim Strappy Tunic-- I love it because it's summery, feminine, and a change from the black and grey I always wear.
Joe Browns Marrakesh Crinkle Tunic-- Gorgeous neckline, amazing color, fantastic shape.
Changes Boutique Strappy Top-- Vibrant but sexy, and a little bit rock 'n' roll if you style it right.
These tunics are long-- a benefit for anyone with a less than flattering tummy-- and pair perfectly with leggings.
Oh yes, I totally wear leggings. I love them! I get the black ones from Torrid since they're thick, warm, and not see-through, something Kim K, Sophia Vergara, and this woman should've considered before leaving the house. Some people may say leggings are a sign of "giving up," not to be worn outside the house, and that bigger women should never wear them.
I say fuck 'em. Wear what you like! I happen to like leggings. BOOM.
I especially like these Pull On Slim Leggings in red from SimplyBe paired with the Marrakesh tunic above:
Of course, I still wear jeans because they're classic and go with everything.
Sophia Blue Washed Skinny Jeans from Torrid-- I have a pair already and would like another.
And of course I need (priorities!!) these two jackets to wear over my tunics and leggings...
Joe Browns Remarkable Coat-- true it's more for spring, but I love the quirkiness and the polka dot lining.
This Tall Spot Blazer would be a-mazing for summer since it's jersey and will go with everything!
Finally, no birthday wardrobe would be complete without accessories!! First up, this baby:
Michael Kors Medium Jet Set Multifunction Saffiano Tote in Vanilla
And wedge sneakers for style :)
Wow.... this list is 'spensive. But I'm totally worth it.
What are your summer wardrobe desires? Do YOU have a birthday too??
