Stripes & Such

This year wasn't a significant birthday (no zeros, not a fiver, & I've passed both the hobbit coming-of-age & the Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, & Everything). And the week leading up to my bday had some particularly rough patches, so I wasn't feeling super-festive.

So I wore a simple outfit with favorite stripes to feel comfortable & polished. And I wore this out to a simple dinner with my hubbi at a little neighborhood restaurant.

What I'm wearing:
Black sheath dress, Target | Black & white stripe knit jacket, Marshall's | Black & white ankle-strap pumps, Marshall's | Black tights, Calvin Klein | Silhouette pendant on black silk ribbon necklace, gift from Kendra | Black & white beaded earrings, random accessory store | Black & gunmetal cocktail ring, random accessory store


  1. Sorry it wasn't a fantastic lead-up to your birthday, but some years are just like that, aren't they? Hopefully the dinner out made up for it! Happy Birthday, Trystan! :o)

  2. I have had years like that as well, but wish you a happy birthday nonetheless. I have a mathematically significant one coming up this year that I am debating whether or not to celebrate. I hope your rough patches have passed and things improve for you.

  3. Happy Birthday!!! You look fabulous ;)

  4. Happy belated birthday, and love the outfit!

  5. Happy Birthday, my sweet friend! You look gorgeous in stripes ... and of course, you know I love those shoes. :) MUAH!
