The Perfect Casual Birthday Party Look

IMG_9570IMG_9597IMG_9600IMG_9581 IMG_9572

Hooray! My birthday is officially a month away! I thought I would channel the birthday vibes flowing through me with this totally glitzy outfit. I think this outfit is perfect for a birthday girl who wants to be the center of attention, but also wants to be able to dance and run around all day. Dresses are fun and all, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up! Especially if you’ll be out and about all day.

I know that when I want to stand out, I go for bold colors and sparkles. I found this perfect sequin wing back top from TopShop. It came with the option for a skirt as well, but I figured having creative control of the pants choice was much cooler! Plus the skirt was pretty pricey.

For my pop of color, I went with these hot fuchsia patent sandals from American Apparel, that went unloved in my closet for two straight years. I guess I was just never confident enough to wear them- plus, I didn’t know how to wear them! Im so glad I pulled them from the depths of my closet, because I got so many compliments on them and will definitely be wearing them more!

To make this look more casual and perfect for running around town all day, I completed the look with some simple distressed high waisted shorts and a low messy ponytail!

This look is the ultimate birthday girl look for a day of festivities. I think I’ll be wearing this out on my big day, then maybe switching into something more fancy for the night!

What do you think I should wear for my birthday? Purple, denim, nikes… a cake? Let me know!

    heyy Eva,
    I really like this blog post and I think it’s really comfortable but still perfect for a birthday party. I also really like the way you put the outfit together and I find really summery and like ready to go kind of style.

  • Everly

    I think that outfit is super cute and definitely trend! I love how you paired it with those bold neon pink sandals and that top is to die for. I think it would look even better if you wore high waisted shorts that weren’t ripped up maybe cropped high waisted shorts instead? But I love you style!

  • I think it would be super cute to wear a starbucks shirt or a fresh white colored crop top with dark denim high waisted shorts and white high top converse. And for your hairyou could wear a really cute head band or hat! and some gold colored bracelets and a gold themed necklace that goes really low :OOO BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOON!! :DDD

    or a jumsuit!
    anything new and different…!! <3
    different you different outfit!

  • Totally what you should wear for your birthday in the day-time.

    For the night-time you should definitely do sparkle, because…why not. I like the thought of a sequined blazer with a mod dress and heels. Very glamorous Twiggy model style.

    I really enjoyed your blog. Keep up the good work & posts because I love reading them!

    I love the shoes. They definitely give a more summery look to the outfit. The high waited shorts were also probably a much better choice than the skirt.
