24th Birthday Weekend

24th Birthday Weekend

Alright, y’all…I’m 24!  My 23rd year flew by so fast and I can’t believe I’m a year older!  My birthday weekend (thank the Lord it was on a Saturday) was pretty low-key.  My boyfriend and I had a movie marathon during the day, then we went with my family went to a wonderful local Italian restaurant for dinner.  With cake, presents, and champagne after, of course.  Since my mom and I share a birthday, the day has always been a family affair.  See my fun weekend below and all the amazing presents I received (can you say McQueen?)!

And finally…the presents!  My mom, the photography expert, gave me a 50mm lens to use for my blog outfit photos.  The “nifty fifty” gives photos that envied blurred background.  We used the lens to take the below photos!

Colton won the Best Boyfriend Award by giving me a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown!  The silk chiffon gathers at the sweetheart bustier top and flows freely down to the floor, with a long train in the back.  I’m going to have the hem taken up to fit my short stature (come on, I’m 5’2), but the corseted top and body fit perfectly!  If y’all didn’t know, McQueen is my favorite designer of all time.

Colton also showered me with Lilly!  This crochet top, ceramic tumbler, and these adorable crab earrings are to die for!

Mom and dad knew how much time I’m planning on spending at the lake this year, so they prepared me with Vera Bradley lake essentials!
