"I Had The Best Day With You, Today"

 I just turned 23-years-old last Monday and as a freelancer, I had the wonderful opportunity to go home with my boyfriend for a few weekdays to see my family and celebrate. My birthday is on Veterans Day, which I am always proud to share with such commendable Americans. 

My special gift from my mother this year was a handmade shirt and skirt made from materials from Mood Fabrics, and a matching necklace. This look is almost the complete opposite of the last one, but just reflects another aspect of my personality. If you couldn't tell already, I enjoy dressing in a lot of different styles. My outfit inspirations depend on my mood and my feelings, and what I have read, seen, or watched lately. It's hard for me to comprehend how people can easily sum up their personal style in a couple words or why they would want to. Your personal style doesn't have to be limited at all, and shouldn't be in my opinion. 

Though I can't give you the place to buy this look unless you place a special order with the designer, I do recommend the vintage-inspired online retailer Modcloth. If you love color and quirky, unique clothing like I do, it is the place for you!

Outfit Tip: Don't be afraid to mix unusual colors together like coral and mustard. My mother asked me to pick out two fabrics that I liked from Mood Fabrics a few months ago, and without knowing it, I picked out my birthday fabrics! I didn't know that she would use them together, but it totally works. 

Outfit Highlights: A birthday top and dress made by my mother with fabric from Mood. 

Song of the Day: "The Best Day" by Taylor Swift
