Cake Cake Cake

Greetings fashion fiends! Hope everyone's been enjoying the onslaught of unpredictable weather. What has it been like where you are? We've missed the past 3 days of school here in Georgia because snow and ice took over the roads (But hey. No complaints from this end).

Today's outfit is actually from last weekend about an hour prior to celebrating my best friend's 21st birthday (hence the colorful decor). I was feeling inspired by the outfit, so we threw together a mini photoshoot before the guests showed up.

I'm so excited that I finally get to show you guys these high waisted pants from Express! They're probably my favorite pair of pants in my closet. I can easily achieve a boho look or whimsical look with these pants, but I decided to target a more upscale look for this special occasion. The first time I wore them was on the beach with a swim suit, the second time was with a bandeau top. Not only are they fashionable, but they're SO comfortable too. Clearly, I couldn't wait for the party to start.
Like I've said before. Turquoise is my favorite stone to serve as an accessory piece with my wardrobe. It accents almost any color perfectly, complementing it with a subtle pop. I kept my jewelry to a minimum with this outfit because I didn't want to take away from its simplicity.
For a while now, I've had this thing for sleeveless turtle necks. So when I saw this creme one by Guess at this store, I was so ecstatic! I could've picked a colored one...but there's a quiet sophistication to cremes and whites. Also, cremes and whites give you a wider variation of outfit possibilities because the color is so basic.
I'm telling you guys. Every girl needs a conventional pair of black heels, preferably in this style. I can't stop wearing these because they go with virtually everything and look great. It was hard finding heels that would go with these pants in a flattering light, but these were an easy pick and solved the problem. My favorite part is the gold accent on the foot strap and the suede material.
Birthdays are definitely one of my favorite events to celebrate because you get to show someone you love and care about how much you appreciate the fact that they're apart of your life. So when you Take the Stares for your loved ones birthdays, do it up for them (especially for 21)! Happy 21st Yani. Hope we made it everything and more.
