Ya girl is officially 19 years old! On Thursday, I wore my new herringbone vest. One of those things I have lusted over for YEARS and either just wasn't in my budget, or as most people know, it ran out of stock. But at the end of the summer, J. Crew Factory had a sale on its new arrivals so I grabbed that vest as soon as I could and have been waiting to wear it until the right day. My birthday seemed like a good day, so I paired it with my friend's pink dress from Gap (similar), patterned tights (similar), a sparkly necklace, and boots for one of the coldest days so far.
We celebrated at the restaurant on campus and with sweet Sophie, who also shared a birthday and lives on my hall.
This was the exact minute I was born, complete with onion rings and a few photo bombs.
I was so happy to have sweet friends that had showered me with fun gifts the night before as it turned into my birthday, including this tiara they tried to get me to wear out.
This peplum top is from a place called Rugged in North Carolina! (Similar)
Friday night was the first basketball game! I honestly love basketball so much and it was so great to be able to just walk to the game. Made me miss Kentucky basketball a little, but dressing up in navy and red and cheering on our Spiders to victory made it so much fun!
Also, that same night, a girl on my hall went to a formal and it was obviously all of the rest of our jobs to help her get ready! My friend braided her hair, but I used a spiral curling iron to get tight curls like that (and then a whole lotta hairspray).
Saturday night was a lowkey fun day, then Sunday brought in more work to be done and getting ready for a busy week!
