Outfit (Birthday Look #1)

It's officially my birthday, and these are the last pictures taken of me at 25 years old. As I take a moment to reflect upon the past year, as I do every year on my birthday, I realize that life is all about experiences and special moments that touch your heart forever. Like when my 3 year old niece climbs up onto my lap, pushes my bangs aside with her tiny little hands, tells me that I'm beautiful, gently kisses my cheek and tells me that she loves me. The best birthday gift an auntie could get.

Last night, my brother and his family had me over for a birthday dinner, and I could not think of a better way to start off my birthday celebrations. My sister in law Tania knows that the best birthday gift she could ever give me is some of her yummy cooking, and of course a yummy cake decorated with a big shoe on the top.

This is the outfit I wore that evening. My brother, who likes to tease me every chance he gets, commented by saying "what kind of jacket is that?". I pretended not to hear him of course. I have learned that talking to him about fashion is truly just a waste of time. Oh how I love having a big brother.

I fell in love with this cape style jacket the moment I saw it. I've been searching for a camel jacket and this one had that little extra something I was looking for.
