a few days ago I turned 22 ! I really can’t believe it as I still feel like a kid most of the time.. The past years have gone so quick but hey – time flies when you’re having most fun, right?!

I actually had to work for a few hours on the day (which was super busy and stressful) but in the end it turned out to be fun and the birthday messages, hugs and cute little presents gave me that extra energy needed!
Later on me and a few friends and family members went for a quiet dinner as I’m really not into partying all night long. I prefer conversating with the people I love and want to have around my birthday celebrations.

Because of that reason, I didn’t want to wear a fancy dress with sparkles everywhere, so I wore something I love at the moment, that is a bit unusual and makes me feel comfortable (the last thing you want is to worry about your outfit when all you really want to do is just enjoy yourself).

So here we go:




I wore this olive colour jumper-dress that is so easy to dress up or down. During the day I paired it with my vintage black leather belt and a bag I’ve also had for a very long time (If I remember correctly I brought it back from Spain a few years ago, and I LOVE IT).  The colours are so me and every fall season I find myself going back to the greens, oranges, browns and blacks which makes this the perfect piece to go with anything!



For the evening I simply added a bit more jewellery (that were actually given to me as a present during the day!!) and changed my bag to a vintage clutch.



I’m always the tallest amongst my friends so I rarely wear heels – it makes me feel like that one odd one standing out from the crowd (especially when I need to lean down just to hear what my friends are saying haha). I’m glad my shoe collection had something a bit more exciting than black boots for me!

I wore my jam coloured oxfords from NewLook that have always been one of my favourite pairs. They’re just simply cute and suit my style!



The night was full of laughter and fun! We went to a Mexican restaurant in Notting Hill as we knew the food and atmosphere there was great. I was also hoping for some sombrero action WHICH WE ACTUALLY GOT!!! The staff made us feel super good and treated all of us with a few birthday shots on the house.


And thanks to Hummingbird bakery my red velvet birthday cake was not only beautiful but tasted like heaven!!!  I highly suggest getting your cake from their bakery – they know what they’re doing 😉
