Kimonos- my favourite article of clothing at the moment. They're so beautiful and most have such detailed designs. Plus, some even have fringe! Not only are they ascetically appealing, but they are practical. They are made of lightweight material making them perfect for the summer months.Who wouldn't want one... or five? (oops) It's no surprise I'd want to include one in my birthday outfit. Birthdays are days to dress how you want in order to feel your best and show the world how fabulous you are. You are the center of attention of the people you care about, so why not try to make the rest of the world notice, too? As conceited as it may sound, a birthday is the day for celebrating your existence! Wear what you want and rock it!! Feel your best and feel absolutely fabulous!! :)
Putting together a particularly nice outfit for my birthday is somewhat of a tradition for me. I've been doing this ever since I could remember, so as expected, I planned a special birthday outfit for myself once again! This outfit did give me that boost in confidence for the day and in all honesty, I did feel fabulous. I love wearing outfits that do that!
Kimono- T.J. Maxx ($19.99)

Bracelets- From a friend and the
bottomless pit that is my drawer
Since the kimono is so colourful, I went with a simple black skater dress and my favourite black cut out boots. By wearing one other colour, that is considered neutral, would ensure that the pieces wouldn't compete with one and other, but rather compliment. The black and gold necklace and gold based bracelets add a tasteful bit of bling to the ensemble, as well.
If anyone is curious, here are several of the goodies I received for my birthday. Good news- there shall be plenty of reviews and OOTDs to come! My last post features my favourite birthday gift. Check it out!!
Do any of you purposely put together a special outfit for your birthday?
