French 26 – Happy Birthday (To Me)

COS stripe top
Carven skirt
Christian Louboutin loafers
Chanel WOC

Today is my birthday! Husband took me out to a French restaurant so I guess I inclined sartorially Parisian as well. Sometimes I’m afraid of getting old, and other days, I think that growing older is the most beautiful thing I can’t control. Either way, I feel more myself the longer I exist and there is a settling peace in that.

Today is also Easter, so happy Easter to you!

    Happy belated birthday!!

    I was wondering, where do you recommend getting eyebrows done in Seattle?

      Thank you!

      To be honest, I've never had my eyebrows professionally done. Recently, I bought the Anastasia Brow Pomade, which I LOVE. I want to find a good threading place. At the Downtown Nordstrom, the Anastasia makeup counter recently started doing brows, so I'm thinking of checking that out sometime.

    Happy birthday lady. I hope your day was fabulous. Also, you were definitely rocking the French thing (which is hard to pull off). Gorgeous as always!!
