Birthday Suit | Scallop Dress and Gold Satchel

Happy humpday beautiful readers! I'm feeling quite excited - Tomorrow is my birthday! 


My friends asked me what I wanted to do for it last month and after some consideration I decided I'm going to spend a big portion of my day at a local soup kitchen and help feed the homeless.





I've been reflecting how the past year has been for me. It's been full of ups and downs and no doubt I've been so focused on getting my career on track. But this year I want to live my life helping others instead of focusing so much on myself. What better way to start it off than by volunteering? :]





Of course we'll get a few cocktails afterward though ;)

What do you guys usually do for your birthdays?

Dress: J Crew
Accessories: Lily Pulitzer belt, Forever 21 satchel, Geneva watch,
Shoes: Steve Madden Getta pumps
