Champagne Saturday: A Birthday Celebration

Happy Champagne Saturday lovelies! I hope you American readers are having a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend and I hope everyone else is out there enjoying your weekend as well! I don’t have much time today as I’m about to head out to support my favorite local boutiques in honor of Small Business Saturday, but I thought I would write a quick post just to say hi and show you one of my latest outfits.

My gorgeous friend Annelis and I have birthdays only one day apart, so we painted the town red last night in honor of our ever increasing age. HA! We’ve always loved celebrating together and this year was no different. For our big night out, I rocked a Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s tuxedo jacket, Modcloth bustier dress, Impo patent leather pumps, Fred Flare chandelier earrings and a satin Express clutch. Black, white and a pop of red has forever been one of my favorite color combinations and while I love each of these pieces separately, they’re so fun when they’re playing together! And did I mention how comfy this look was? You gotta love it when comfort and style go hand in hand. Am I right?

What about ya’ll? Did you wear anything specialΒ  or drink anything particularly yummy this weekend? Perhaps you also had a birthday celebration? Stranger things have happened. Bwah! Oh, did I mention that I sipped on a deliciously divine cocktail called a Strawberry Smash? I, of course, forgot to take pictures of it…but let me just say that I’m going to be asking my chock full of cocktail makin’ talent sister to recreate it for me! I’m a sucker for strawberry anything, but especially strawberry libations. So, there you have it, my birthday outfit and whatnot. Yep, that’s up to the minute with me. Until the next time…

    Egg nog! We made it for the first time, and we still have half a batch left to take to dinner party at a friend’s house tonight, where I’m making–wait for it–Oreo pumpkin mini-cheesecakes. Yummm. Diet starts Monday…

    Ear candy, par excellance! Hope you had a lovely b-day and Turkey Day, as well. We “rocked” Kohl’s when we were out in Wisconsin. They always seem to have a better selection out at their home-state stores!

    Love your earrings! I made my Grandma’s sweet potato casserole. Yum! It was wonderful! It has about 10 pounds of butter and sugar in it so it’s definitely for special occasions! Glad y’all had fun!

    Very cute outfit. Sounds like you had a great time.
    Been doing family stuff and still working on decorating the house and hanging the lights. Now that we have kids and they are growing and getting more into it I find myself buying more and more big cutesy decorations they can relate to. Tomorrow will be more dress up as I have plans to check the thread fashion show.

    Precious! I really want to order something from Modcloth, but I’m always scared to not try something on. Besides, I don’t have a job right now–therefore—no purchases right now.

    I’m glad your bday was fun! Last night I had a date, and I wore this vintage dress that I bought from a boutique. I felt so sophisticated! haha!

    Happy Birthday! You look fabulous. Love the dress. Plus, it looks so warm and toasty in your neck of the woods. I’m so jealous. It’s freezing here. I just curled up with a bottle of wine and an electric blanket along with hours of recorded sitcoms missed during the week.

    Happy belated birthday to you and Annelis! Gorgeous outfit; I like how you kept things chic with black and white and added just a touch of red with the statement earrings.

    Hmm what did I drink this weekend that was yummy…does strawberry banana bubble tea count?

    I hope you and your friend had a very Happy Birthday! I also hope that you and the family had a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Your outfit is fabulous! I cannot believe the blazer is from Kohl’s and I love the pop of red with the earrings.

    You look beautiful! Love the pop of color from your earrings… totally makes the entire outfit!

    And I really want this Lauren Conrad blazer (, but they didn’t have my size and it’s sold out online! πŸ™

    So, to answer your question, I had some fantastic pomegranate cocktail- have no idea what it was, but I happily consumed it with one hand, while whisking gravy in the other (I know, oh so talented πŸ™‚ )
