Most days, I still feel like I'm 11 years old. This might be because I tend to not make a huge deal of my birthdays, and in fact, usually the only tradition I have is to take a day off work. And that might be because my birthday is after the school year ends, and when I was a little kid, most of my friends had already left on their holidays by the time my birthday party rolled around...
But I digress.
This year, as usual, I took the day off.
I went to the lake, read magazines, and got bitten by lots of mosquitoes. Even swam in the lake. It was a beautiful day.

Here's what I wore. There seem to be an infinite number of iterations on this dress. Fit and flare, optional straps. I opted for the straps, of course. I liked this dress because of the pretty embroidered flowers. The centers are cut out, and the slip underneath is yellow and shows through.

Shoes: Nine West, old (similar)
Purse: Banana Republic (similar)
