The month of May has always been a month of celebrations for me! The main reason is that it is my birth month. And I believe more in birth month celebrations rather than just birth day celebrations! Because why celebrate your life for just one day, when you can celebrate for the entire month? Eh, what the heck, we really need to just celebrate our lives every damn day!
Then I met my husband and his birthday is also in May. He was very confused the first time I introduced him to the concept of the birth month celebration. But during that first month of May that we were dating, he sort of loved it because I gave him a small present every single day of the month! And who doesn’t love receiving a present every day for 31 straight days?
Jump forward a few years and our first born was born on the first of May! So now we really have reasons to celebrate all month long! And through all of my 42 years, I have met some pretty awesome people who were born in May! You all know who you are! So to them, I say Happy Birth Month! But today, May 4, is a very special gal’s actual birthday and I am joining her for a blogger birthday party!
Many of you already know Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood. And this week she has invited a whole bunch of lovely blogger friends to get dressed up in their best “old” dresses to celebrate with her! Do hop on over to Ada’s blog and see all of the lovely party guests and send her some amazing birthday wishes! You can join some amazing link up parties there, too!
Happy Birthday, Ada!
In honor of Ada’s birthday and at her request to wear my best “old” dress (at least 2 years old), I styled one of my favorite skater style dresses! It has been in my closet for about 4 years now. I added a lightweight kimono and belted it for some extra shape. A pretty necklace and my favorite Toms mules complete the look. The perfect outfit to attend a Spring Blogger Birthday Party in May!
Dress and Bag: Old (from Target).
Kimono: Old (from DSW).
Shoes: TOMS Sandstorm Nubuck Perforated Women’s Majorca Mules.
And now it’s link up time! I am posting a few hours earlier than normal because I need to get this birthday celebration started!
