Birthday Shopping Style Haul

Last week I did a little birthday shopping style haul. Shockingly, I refrained from picking up any beauty products on this birthday splurge-a-thon and solely stuck to a few things I had my eyes on in the clothing and accessories department.  As you know, I am a self-proclaimed “beauty-product-hoarder”- so coming home without a tube of lipstick or a well-packaged eyeshadow is kind of a big deal for me.

While I never expect gifts from anyone, I have to say there is nothing better than gifts from the family. And what usually happens is they actually skip the shopping for me and send money or a giftcard instead… and I am totally okay with that situation. Getting a giftcard or cash as a birthday present is a way to have complete guilt-free shopping. Thus, my birthday shopping style haul.

Birthday Style Haul at 31

So let me show you what pretty accessories and clothes I picked up for my 31st birthday. I didn’t go crazy, but I love everything I got.


Here is my birthday shopping style haul:

 Birthday Style Haul at in your 30's

Necklace:  What I love about this long-gold-necklace is the pearls encapsulated in a jewel-like pendant. This is a necklace that can be dressed up or dressed down, and will go with a ton of different outfits. -Forever21 (Around $5.00)


pajama short style in your 30's

Sheer Shorts: Don’t worry, I won’t leave my home with these sheer-floral shorts on. They are for sleeping only… or whatever.  -Forever 21 (Around $4.00)


silk shorts style

Printed Shorts: Now, these Forever21 art-deco/Aztec-looking (… I don’t know what you’d call it) shorts are going out in public. They are comfortable, silky, trendy, and I love them. -Forever21 (Around $12.00)


Wearing Rompers in your 30's

Romper: If I am too old to wear a romper, please don’t tell me- just let me live in denial. This black romper has beautiful sheer lace detailing on the neck-line, spaghetti straps, and a cinched-in waist line. It’s perfect for a sunny day or a cool evening, if paired with a light sweater. Plus, It would look amazing with strappy sandals, boots, or wedges. -Forever21 (Around $20.00)


Marc by Marc Jacobs White Bag

Marc by Marc Jacaobs Hand Bag


Marc by Marc Jacobs White Bag: When I look for a bag, I need one that will go with everything, fits everything, looks awesome, and will stay with me for a while.  I really wanted a white purse, so when I saw white Marc by Marc Jacobs bag on major, major, major clearance at Nordstrom’s Rack, it had to be mine. With that said, I think my mom about had a heart attack when she saw how much I payed for the clearance priced designer bag.  She just could not believe I spent that much. But to me, a purse is an investment; I use it every-day, all day. And this was an insane deal. -Nordstroms Rack ($175.00 Reg. $450.00)


How to wear a Romper

I feel like I found some cool finds for my birthday shopping style haul! I love that Forever21 carries so many inexpensive clothing and accessories choices that I was able to splurge a bit on my fancy bag. What do you splurge on when you get birthday money or giftcards?
