Birthdays

Yesterday was my brother David's birthday (he turned 21!) so we went out to Sambucas a lovely restaurant here in Nashville in The Gultch with live music and great drinks. It was a wonderful celebration, though I'm not sure how much more I can handle of my siblings growing up. Jesse graduates from Middle School, David turns 21 and in 9 days my sister Sarah turns 19. They all need to just stop it!


I usually don't do very big accessories, I know they can totally make an outfit, but I'm more on the simple side, so this necklace felt like A LOT, but I really ended up liking it with the whole outfit.

shoes nine west
necklace not sure but it's old 

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. It's halfway to the weekend!

  1. Hahaha that first photo - so fun! I agree about big jewellery, as much as I like the idea of it I find myself having trouble making it work!
    However this necklace you're wearing is really subtle in it's colouring so I think it goes really well with all of this, I actually love it!

  5. Love the outfit! The necklace looks fantastic with the overalls, too. I agree I often go more simple. My eyes oogle fancier big necklaces and earrings, then I try them on and feel like it's too much. lol

    You look gorgeous as always! I love that first fun shot the best. :)

  8. You look gorgeous! And a very happy bday to your siblings! My little sister turned 21 last Friday and it just shocked me how fast they grow up and become our closest friends! xo

  9. The big necklace is a wonderful complement to the voluminous overalls; scale and proportion are so important and the chunky jewelry at the neck balances the wide leg cut.

    Just wait until you can take your youngest sibling to a bar... That's when you REALLY feel old. :( At least you're looking young and fabulous today!

  10. How am I just now discovering your blog? I just spent a half an hour (ok maybe more) flipping thought your past outfit photos and I love every single one, I can't wait to read more! These overalls are stunning on you and I love how you styled them with a cute cropped jacket. You nailed the proportions and managed to make overalls look effortless (a major fashion feat in my book!)

  29. I'm with you completely when it comes to big accessories (they rarely seem to work on my short little figure), but adore the necklaces here and don't feel like they've nabbed the limelight at all. You look gorgeous, cheerful, and sooooo stylish, dear gal!


    Oodles of hugs,

  48. You look fab! I'm awful at accessorizing as well, I always worry that it's too much, but I bet it hardly ever is! I think the necklace you have on here goes quite well with the rest of your outfit, not too much at all!
