What She Wore: Birthday Dinner

Typically TH and I go out for dinner on my birthday and then do something with friends later that week. But this year I got selfish and canceled dinner for two and tried making reservations for a lot. Not always an easy task. People are busy and not everyone you’d like to celebrate with can make a mad dash to your restaurant of choice across town, in traffic. Waaaaaaaa. After canceling on six different restaurants, I realized it’s just as special to have a romantic dinner with your BFF. And as long as everyone I care about acknowledged it was my special day, I was happy. Thank you!

So here’s what I wore:


An already owned sheer, black Zara top paired with a Zara skirt I managed to buy just hours before heading to dinner.


Necklace from flea market, Badgley Mischka pumps and TH’s grandmother’s old clutch.

Here’s a photo I took on our way to dinner.


If you haven’t been to LA, this is a view looking into Hollywood.

Next week, I promise to go back to featuring interiors and less about me photos.

Happy Weekend!
