Thirty Love

2/22/2016

Tomorrow is my birthday -- I'm turning 30! I've sort of been celebrating it since the weekend, and I actually plan on celebrating it into next weekend as well. I'm taking this party to wine country with a few friends and I can't wait. Will definitely keep you guys posted on the festivities via Snapchat (ohtobeamuse) and Instagram!

I also thought it would be funny to wear this baby doll dress to celebrate my 30th being that everyone thinks I'm a child. I love the fit and flow of this Chicwish piece, and you can shop it via the link below. Maybe now that I'm 30, I'll stop getting carded...but probably not.

This KITSCH chain bun pin was pretty sweet and sophisticated since I'm all queen for a day and whatnot. I wore it with my hair down, but obviously, this pin would look fantastic with a messy bun. I'm also really happy to rock these Versace V19.69 Italia Jewelry pieces, that couldn't be more perfect to welcome me into my 30s. You might have seen them on my Instagram lately. And to top off my accessories, I'm wearing these beautiful Lanvin sunglasses from DITTO. I swapped out my House of Holland pair for these and I have totally fallen in love with them. The sleek, golden frames are out of this world. Want to join in on the fun and get endless eyewear? Use my code OHTOBEAMUSE to get one month free at DITTO!

P.S. -- thanks for all the valuable comments on my Cultural Appropriation post from last week!
