My 40th Birthday!

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you're all having a great week!  I have been incredibly busy working and celebrating my 40th birthday, which was yesterday!  For the past two years, celebrating my birthday has been bittersweet because this time period also marks the anniversary of saying "see you later" to my beautiful Mom.  Some days I laugh a lot as I remember the memories and all of the things that she taught me.  Some days I cry a lot.  I miss my Mom SO much.

I am SO grateful to J. Crew that I was able to celebrate my big 4-0 in New York City at their AMAZING Fashion Week show!  I will do several recap posts this weekend!

Yesterday, I was able to celebrate with laughter and joy.  I am walking into my 40s with so much excitement.  Here is the outfit that I wore last night.  My outfit is all J. Crew, of course! We went to a local Italian restaurant for dinner!:

Outfit Details: 

Shirt | J. Crew Factory Drapey Scoopneck Top
Pants | J. Crew Iridescent Sequin Pull-On Pant
Shoes | J. Crew Mirror Metallic Kitten-Heel Sandals
Necklace | J. Crew Pearl Twisted Hammock Necklace
Clutch | Clare V. Leopard Hair Foldover Clutch

By the way, I have several reviews coming up!  I hope to get the reviews posted this weekend.  I'll be reviewing the following pieces for sure:
