Do y’all buy your own birthday presents? Hopefully, I’m not the only one that does this. Just in case I AM the only one, I’d like to say that I consider it quality control, and this way I always get what I like.
Anyway, I already bought myself a few things, and I have a few more things on my wish list. So, I thought I’d share, just in case you have a birthday coming up, or ya know...you just want to treat yo self. Which is fine, you totally deserve it. First, this T-shirt from American Eagle, here. It speaks to my heart! Vintage AND photography...it would be adorable with my flare jeans, or half tucked into shorts...

OR it would be cute with either of these jean skirts, here and here, or a corduroy skirt, here, that I already bought from American Eagle as birthday gifts, of course. Actually, I just added that T-shirt to my cart, not gonna lie. It's just calling my name. I sort of have a thing for vintage t-shirts.
This bag in red from Francesca’s. Yes I already have it in black, but they were having a sale - buy one clearance item and get the second free...so I got this red bag and I got a matching grey one for my daughter. I don't see it online, but check the store in Spotsylvania Towne Centre. And ya know what else? If you look on Amazon, a genius came up with the idea for inserts that fit these bags... mind blown. Check it out here. I am pretty sure whoever thought of that idea deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
Also from Francescas, this really cute round rattan bag in black, here. It sort of feels like it could be a canteen...which makes me adore it even more. Keeps people guessing. The black isn't on the website, but that fuschia color is awesome, you should get that one. I am also realllllly loving this round striped bag, here. I'd add a colorful pom pom tassel to it. I already have this round bag from Target, here, is it too similar? Does it even matter? Nope, add to list.
Last, but not least, this leopard top that I found at Target, here. I struggle wearing the normal orange/brown toned leopard print stuff, but this is more subtle in tone, and it works well for my coloring. I love it with white denim for spring. You need this top!
I also love going to brunch and sitting with my man Abe at Foode... so that will be happening for my birthday as well. The chicken and Waffles are basically what dreams are made of.
