Birthdays and Beaches

Erin Wasson x RVCA tank, Abercrombie & Fitch shorts, Vintage belt, earrings & bracelet,
Feather Creations by Carmen headband, Havaianas flip flops, Balenciaga bag

This weekend was my 24th birthday - I'm getting old! The celebration lasted for 3 days, and included Mexican, Italian, and Indian food, mango margaritas, and wayyyyy too much cookie cake. Why is it that all celebrations revolve around food? Not that I'm complaining!

The BF and I went to the beach yesterday, and he gave me this beautiful feather headband. I think I fell in love with him even more after finding out he bought it on Etsy! I love that he also loves supporting independent designers. You all should check out Feather Creations by Carmen, because she makes some beautiful stuff! Next on my list of must-haves are her Tribal Feather, Stone, and Leather earrings - gorgeous!

I hope you've all been enjoying this long weekend! Happy Memorial Day to all my American readers! And don't forget to enter to win a $100 gift certificate to Shopbop - ends this Saturday!

You look so amazing in your laid back outfit! The headband really makes a statement and is phenomenal! Your boyfriend deserves a big award for that one! That is totally awesome that he took initiative to find such a statement piece!!!

Old, smold! I'm turning 18 soon, and I remember when I was smaller I thought 18 was old, and now I look at it and I'm like: goddamn, but I'm still young and time is flying fast!

24 is still super young. I'm super late but I'm still telling you HAPPY BELATED FREAKING BIRTHDAY! Looks like you had a blast. I haven't been to the beach in ages. But I do love your attire. And you're very lucky to have a bf who's so open that he bought you that lovely headband, from off of Etsy no less! Takes a lot of searching :)

PS. I. want. your. bag.

Shhhh said...

Cool pictures, i really like your headband and belt. Also in love with your bag
