My Birthday Suit

MINT GREEN JEGGINGS - Flying Monkey
BLACK TOP - Mimi Chica
BLACK STRAPPY WEDGES - Colin Stuart
AWESOME WHITE CUFF - Made by Mom for my bday!

Okay, it's not my real birthday suit, but what I decided to wear on my birthday.  These are my new Flying Monkey jeans that Fierce got me from Anonymous.  She somehow convinced me to go small, so they're pretty darn tight (hence the loose black top).  I'm still trying to figure out if I can wear these jeans with something else besides white and black.  Any ideas?

I've had a great day so far.  Got to go shopping with my bestie, Plaid.  Started off by returning most of the Target dresses (phew, glad that's off my credit card!), then checked out Forever 21, Old Navy and H&M but only got a floral dress for $5.99 and a navy gingham shirt from Old Navy!  Guess I must be out of practice with that shopping thing.

Later I had lunch with my mom, Fair Isle and stepdad, Henley.  About to head over to see my friend Stripes.  Then gonna end the bday with a dinner date with Camo.  We're going to try a new Asian fusion restaurant.

Anyway, birthdays are always special, though I do find myself reflecting on my life and getting a little emotional.  But luckily, it's been a good year!

You look adorable! Awesome outfit. I bet you could rock those jeans with a certain shade of purple. Maybe a pretty plum? And happy birthday to you :)

I love the cuff! It reminds of Hans Holbein's jewelry designs for Henry VIII. Seriously.

You are so adorably skinny!! I wish I could wear jeggings, but they just make my legs look like tree trunks! lol

Happy birthday!!

Hmmm... Have you tried maybe layering and wearing something bright pink or purple underneath a white button up? I don't know... In my head, it looks good, but who knows if it really will? lol

ANN said...

I wish I could pull off florescent jeggings! These look great on you! Happy birthday :)

Tara said...

Happy birthday, Claire! Glad you've had such a great day :)

I love these pants! I think you could maybe wear them with navy (I know, not a huge stretch from black, right?), or maybe a darker yellow? I think pink would look great too, light or dark.

Happy Birthday!
Those are awesome jeggings. I love the mint green.Maybe you can look at them as a neutral and wear it with bright yellows and reds and blues. It would be lovely too with creams.
