Birthday Dinner

Yesterday was my birthday, so my friends and family got together to celebrate at the Buckeye Roadhouse, which I think is honestly the best restaurant in the Bay Area. My family used to go here for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and they have such a great, modern take on classic, all American cuisine. They also make a cucumber gimlet that is to die for! 

Shirt: Kate Spade; Pants: JBrand; Shoes: Miu Miu
I paired this Kate Spade blouse with my black J Brand jeans that I wear with pretty much everything when I'm not wearing my JCrew Minnie pants.  It was casual enough for just a simple dinner, but with a fun twist that made it special. 

This print from Kate Spade a few months ago was designed by New York street artist Darcel in order to honor the company's love of New York. It features donuts, taxi cabs, hot dogs, champagne flutes, and basically all sorts of things that make me think of New York, and it's pink, so it combines two of my favorite things perfectly. It's a little loud, but I absolutely love it! 

I thought that these pointy-toed Miu Miu pumps complemented the blouse nicely, as they added some edge to the fun and quirky print. 

Then the back of the pumps is just covered in glitter... I mean how could you not love these? I thought the combination was so me, which is perfect when you're dressing for your birthday dinner and you can get away with pretty much anything!

I didn't wear any jewelry, with the exception of some simple gold pyramid stud earrings that I could get a good picture of.  I'm sure they'll show up on here again soon though! But I thought everything else was so busy that I didn't really need anything competing for attention. 

Until next time, 


  1. I hope you had a wonderful Birthday dinner! I am loving those shoes!
