Big Chill


{Sweater: Similar | Maxi: Bloom | Purse: Jigsaw UK | Shoes: ShoeMint}

It is finally actually cold here today. It’s almost like we are having a fall moment, like the rest of you in the United States. Technically I should be wearing a jacket, but it covers up my outfit. For you, I shall sacrifice my comfort and warmth. I’m just such a giver, what can I say? 

Tomorrow is my birthday — I’m officially almost old. Two years away from 30 — youth is literally slipping through my fingertips. But today — today I will live like I’m 27. Which basically means a few multi-vitamins and a good night’s rest.

  8. Lucky you, it's 80 degrees here in Atlanta today. Still no sign of Fall, and I still haven't worn a pair of boots. They are just screaming to be worn!

    I love this sweater, scarf combo. Super pretty.  And happy early birthday!

  9. Happy almost birthday. Ha, tomorrow perhaps you will have to swap out "multi-vitamins" with anti-wrinkle cream. Ha, I kid, I kid. 28 is young. Embrace it.

    Happy early birthday! I just turned 27 and felt the same way. "Wait – does that mean I'm not in my mid-20s anymore?" was the thought of the day.  The good news is you look amazing and if you look it – I'm sure you feel it, too. 🙂 Love that 27 is categorized by sleep and multivitamins. That sounds about right to me. 🙂

I don't know, I'm full of compliments today…it must be my cold I'm battling…:)
