Yesterday was my 29th birthday!! And what a special day it was (besides the fact that it's one year away from 30!!). I knew that Ryan & I were going out to dinner at one of my favorite spots, California based True Food Kitchen that recently opened in Fairfax, Virginia. The cuisine is based on the anti-inflammatory diet and the menu pretty much only includes healthy options. The food is delicious - my favorite is the chicken curry - and you don't feel weighed down after.
For my birthday night out, I also knew that I wanted to look cute and feel special on my day (especially being pregnant). So, the day before, I took Lincoln to Nordstrom to buy some new Converse and also decided to get myself something. I wanted something that would last me through (at least the beginning) of pregnancy and something that I would feel cute, comfortable and sexy in. I also didn't want to spend a ton of money, so I looked in BP at Nordstrom. BP has super trendy clothes at a reasonable price.
I found this cute little ensemble, a Socialite dress that comes in many patterns and colors, and quickly knew that this dress would be the one that I would buy! I was in the market for something olive colored, which I think is one of this season's "in" colors. Needless to say, the dress fit and I felt 100% like myself in it. I paired the dress with some Steve Madden open-toed booties and simple jewelry, and off we went!
We had a wonderful dinner at True Food Kitchen, and I ended up having a wonderful 29th birthday! I am so excited for what this year has to bring our family and am proud of all that I have personally accomplished this past year, including graduating from Georgetown business school and becoming pregnant with our second angel. Bring it on, 30!!
Enjoy the rest of your week mamas! >> Outfit details below! >>
