What I learned On My Birthday.

My 31st birthday was last Saturday and I wanted to share with you what I learned on my birthday. I was asked to participate in a Fashion Facebook contest here in DC (Click here to vote for me and “LIKE” my photo) and be in a street style photo shoot for the contest. I never in a million years would’ve thought I would be part of a photo shoot on my actual birthday, let alone asked to participate in style contest. First lesson learned was literally *and I’m not quoting Justin Bieber* never say never!

Second lesson was more personal style based; wearing pink pants as an adult lol. I Remember wearing pink pants as a little kid but as an adult was a different ball game. Part of breaking my own clothing comfort zone at 31 is getting into things I NEVER thought I could wear. Wearing pink pants on my birthday check!, then turning around and posing in them for a photo shoot?! Never would have put those two together. And yet here we are.


A more mature lesson was temperament based. It was raining on my birthday and in my younger days it would’ve been “THE END” *My birthday is officially ruined a la Regina George style *gawwhhhh* but I had my amazing husband with me, doing something fabulous, spoiled with a birthday shopping spree and looking forward to dinner at one of my fav restaurants in DC Chef Geoff’s. The rain wasn’t an issue for me at all *wow such maturity* lol.

Even though these lessons may be small observations to some, for me it was huge. I’m actually growing up and I’m loving it!

I quote my dear friend Ida when she said “31 is the new 21” Amen to that sistah!
