elegance ensemble, nineteen candles

As a little follow up to my previous birthday post, I thought I'd share some pictures of my fabulous day. I actually celebrated all week (which is why there have been a lack of posts) which was amazing but exhausting at the same time. I went on a spur-of-the-moment shopping spree after class on Monday, which resulted in a cute pair of oxfords from Zara and a silk dress from Forever 21. Then it was time for my outfit close up - this was before we hit our Indian Summer and I felt like fall was in the air. I had so much fun throwing leaves around like a little kid. I have to celebrate my last year as a teenager so why not, right?

Throughout the night, I celebrated with some of my closest friends, and headed to Milestone's for girls night. Did I mention that the bellini's there are to die for? Paired with my favourite appetizer of Chicken Thai Bites on jasmine rice - delicious. Needless to say, I went home tipsy, full, and emotional. Yes, I ended up shedding a few tears in my drunken daze - our server was awful and as the birthday girl I wanted everything to be perfect! Such a drama queen. My festivities continued throughout the week with a birthday dinner with my second family, a trip to Granville Island with my amazing boyfriend, a night of messy clubbing on Saturday, and a huge family get together on Sunday. Phewf. Being the birthday girl is hard work!

  1. Happy belated birthday! You look fantastic in this outfit. I love the cozy cardi and the use of winter white to brighten up an autumnal outfit, plus the plaid umbrella is a cheerful touch. Too bad the server was so awful that you shed some tears on your big night, but hey! You're 19!! The year ahead of you is going to be so fun. :D

  2. Every time I see blogger post things from H&M I hate that I'm here in Texas with none in sight! Every piece you have from there is beyond adorable. I may have to pick my next vacation spot based solely on where there's an H&M!
