Lindsey's 21st Birthday Week!

April 29, 2015

In case you didn't know from my instagrams, last week was my twenty-first birthday! From rooftop drinks at the Standard to basement clubbing at the Edison, it's been a pretty fun week to turn twenty-one in Los Angeles. Here's what I did (and of course, what I wore) throughout the week:

 Tuesday: Birthday!!!

Even birthday girls have to go to class!
I had class from 2-6pm and again from 7-10 (I know, right? At least they were both film classes) so I decided to bring the party with me all day long with this super cute navy sequin swing dress from Nasty Gal. To make it daytime appropriate I wore a denim jacket from Madewell and my trusty Steve Madden boots (it was overcast). The crown was necessary.

After my evening class I went out with some friends to the Rooftop Bar at the Standard, the trendy hotel downtown and usual stomping ground of USC students (such a hard life we live). I had a Cosmopolitan, which was delicious, and a Bellini—also delish. It was a perfect, chill way to spend turning drinking-age legal on a Tuesday.

Friday: Dinner Downtown 

Burrata pizza and cocktails at Faith & Flower
On Friday evening my sorority big sister and I went downtown to the ever-popular Faith & Flower for some absolutely amazing food and drinks. They specialize in fancy cocktails and I can't even remember what was in mine, but it was refreshing and great and I highly recommend the restaurant if you are ever in downtown Los Angeles. The pizza was perfection too, and lasted me throughout the weekend!

I was going for a vintage Parisian look during the day—simple bun, red lips, thin cat-eye, striped top, the works.

At night my friends and I went to the Edison, a prohibition-style club in the basement of one of the oldest buildings downtown. It was a full-on speakeasy fantasy, with acrobatic performances, different hidden rooms, and even women carting around absinthe shots while dressed as the green fairy. Very trendy. I wore another dress from Nasty Gal—this time a black one—and accentuated with a bold Tiffany-blue necklace.

Needless to say, I quite enjoy being 21 and finally being able to explore everything this city has to offer!

Sunday: Birthday Brunch

For the classy portion of the birthday festivities my friends and I (plus my mom) went out for brunch at a recently-opened restaurant called The Church Key in West Hollywood. The food was the bomb (seriously, is brunch food ever disappointing?) and the company was even better! Plus, they served mimosas out of an old Panam drink cart. I want one!

I'm a fan of a simple dress and sandals combination for brunch, so I wore a lavender dress from Minkpink and accessorized with a long gold necklace and matching hair clip.

All in all, a pretty good birthday week! And now that I'm 21 I'm sure there will be many more adventures to come!
