Yesterday was my birthday and I turned seventeen!
Being seventeen is so weird – I’m finally not in that awkward sixteen limbo where people think you can be anywhere from a sophomore to a senior (and as a senior, its pretty insulting being questioned as to whether or not you are a sophomore).
Also something to note: when I started reading Seventeen Magazine, I was thirteen or fourteen and being the age of seventeen seemed really far off in the distance. And now thinking about it, I’m not quite sure the magazine ever catered toward real problems that seventeen year olds have…
My parents and brother were super sweet and bought me some amazing gifts, all fashion related so I had to share!
I’ve been trying to hunt down those new EOS lip balms for such a long time so I appreciated these sooo much (winter = chapped lips 24/7). And those Marc by Marc Jacobs earrings? I mentioned them in two blog posts (here and here) so I definitely think my parents knew how much I wanted them. I already know I’m going to wear them waaay too much!
Good things come in VV boxes, am I right? Fun fact: the pattern on the shirt might look like black and white but it is navy and white – VV doesn’t sell black! Sure, they might use black stitching, but otherwise, the sales associate told my mom the darkest color they use in patterns and prints is navy.
Hope you all had a great week! I’ll be out and about this weekend so check instagram for updates from me!
