12 Outfits to Get You Birthday Ready


[title subtitle="But I'm Feelin' 22!"]I Don't Know About You[/title]

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22! That’s right, LoDown fam, today is my 22nd birthday! Even though a part of me is excited to start a new chapter of my life, the other part still wishes I was 21. But, you know what they say?

Behind every new chapter in life is a new wardrobe.

Okay, so maybe no one really says that, but for today—my birthday—I’m officially ruling it a “thing.” I mean, what better way is there to talk about birthdays then by talking birthday outfits?

Festivity-wise, this year is definitely going to be a lot more mellow. No, I won’t be hitting the clubs into the wee hours of the night, but yes, I will still be celebrating well and in style. I’m thinking a cute statement-making top for bar night around school. Otherwise, for the rest of the weekend, brunch, brunch, brunch, brunch, brunch! Who in New York doesn’t love a fun-filled brunch? The outfit I’m most excited to wear to one of those said birthday weekend brunches is a free people shift dress paired with my leather over-the-knee boots.

If you’re hitting the clubs, definitely rock a dress! Your birthday is the one day out of the whole year where a dress will always be appropriate. If you don’t want to, that’s okay too. You do you. As for your morning after brunch outfit, I suggest something lose to hide those late night nibbles. Oh, and pair that with cute, comfortable shoes!

Here are some of my top birthday outfit picks. I guarantee you will make quite the statement. Can you guess which of these I’m planning to wear? Let me know your favorites! And, happy birthday to me!
