Hello and happy already Tuesday, what a great way to kick off my birthday week! I can’t believe in just 2 days it will be the middle of the year and I’ll be celebrating my birthday! Is it just me or is this year is FLYING by?! My goodness, before we know it we’ll be listening to Christmas music….oy! But I won’t get too ahead of myself, I’m excited to enjoy summer first!!Over the long holiday weekend I took full advantage of the weather and spent as much time as possible outside and with the family. Saturday morning Rick and I went to the Hillcrest Farmers Market and spent a good 2 hours walking around, sampling delicious treats, picking up fresh fruits and veggies, and enjoyed spending quality time together. I was excited to bring my Pom Pom Tote bag with me to the market because its not only ridiculously cute and colorful but it was the perfect size to fit our bounty of market treats. I don’t think a single woman walked passed me without making a comment or asking where I got my bag, I’d say it was a huge hit! I can’t wait to bring this baby to beach and pool this summer too!I also wore my striped one shoulder top that I can’t live without. It’s not just trendy, it’s comfortable and shows the right amount of skin. To tie into my pom pom bag I added a pair of pink pom pom earrings (that I also bought in black) and have been wearing on the daily! I originally saw these earrings on Instagram and they were $245…um no! So I went on the hunt and found them for WAY cheaper. Baublebar has them for $48 and Charming Charlie’s has them for $10-$12 (in-store). Yes please!
Sunday morning we also went for a nice 9 mile bike ride around Fiesta Island. The exercise was much needed because later that day we celebrated my birthday at my moms house with a Thanksgiving dinner. About 5 years ago my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday dinner, I said “Thanksgiving!” she laughed, but went all out and recreated our Thanksgiving dinner down to every detail! Ever since then we’ve had my Birthday/Thanksgiving tradition and it’s the best time spent with family! Do you have any fun birthday traditions? I’d love to hear them!!
I hope you have a wonderful short week and if you happen to recreate this outfit, tag me on Instagram, I’d love to see how you style it! xo Vanessa
