Birthday Weekend Recap

April 25, 2016

Rainbow sprinkles are the only way to celebrate a birthday!
Thursday was my birthday! So begins a full year of waking up to Taylor Swift's "Twenty-Two" (seriously, that's the most exciting part about being 22, I've already learned). Here's what I did this past weekend to celebrate!


On your birthday, wear the things you love!
When your hair and makeup cooperates for your birthday :)

My birthday fell on a Thursday this year, which was kind of unfortunate because Thursday is the one day this semester that I actually have a full day of classes, but no Friday classes, so I could go out and have some fun after class!

I wore a Madewell dress and jacket with ankle boots, one of my go-to outfit combos that never fails and always leaves me feeling confident and stylish. You should dress in a way that makes you feel good every single day, but especially on your birthday. It's a day to celebrate you, after all!

For dinner I ordered Sugarfish (delivered straight to the house through Postmates) and it was just the most delicious thing ever. Special days should be filled with favorite things, and sushi from Sugarfish is like, the definition of perfect.

Finally, my friends and I ventured to Villain's Tavern in the trendy LA Arts District for some fun cocktails and live music. So thankful to have great sorority sisters and friends to make my college experience so memorable!

Friday was the last sorority invite of the year (and ever for me) so naturally I had to go out in style. I found this amazing dress on Nasty Gal—I knew I wanted to get a red dress to make a big statement—and it fit just perfectly! I love it.

For my beauty look, I channeled my inner glam punk with a side braid hairstyle inspired by Cara Delevingne's 2014 Met Gala look. 

nothing eventful on Saturday, I had to do homework!


Brunching it up at Larchmont Bungalow 
Loose tank + ripped skinnies = perfect cool brunch look
Interesting street art is all around you!

Silence + Noise tank top
Madewell jeans, sandals, necklace, and sunglasses

To end the weekend with just as much style, my friend Bree and I ventured to Larchmont Village for yummy brunch and window shopping. Larchmont is so cute and quaint, and their farmers market is a must-see. Seriously, seeing all the fresh produce and food got me so excited for when I finally have a real apartment with a kitchen to cook in (the sorority house doesn't have a full kitchen for us to use, sadness).

And of course, Game of Thrones and Veep are back, which means I am a happy Lindsey. Yay!
