A 30th Birthday Outfit

November 24, 2014
New York City Night Out
In less than two weeks time, my favorite Brit will be turning 30!! To celebrate, my brother is planning an amazing birthday celebration in NYC, involving a show at Caroline’s comedy club, dinner at Carmine’s, and ending with a viewing of the tree. Personally I wonder if something amazing might happen, but given my terrible secret-keeping ability I’d probably be the last to know.
A 30th Birthday Outfit


 Every great event/occasion warrants a new outfit, or at least some wishful thinking of what I’d wear if my wallet would allow it. When I think of NYC, I think of two things: black and sparkly. Not one to decorate myself like the crystal ball on New Year’s Eve, I only wanted something that had a hint of sparkle. When I want clothes, Nordstrom is always my first (and typically only) stop. I know most of their items are expensive, but they also have a lot of designers that produce clothes that deviate somewhat from the trending style. For example, as pictured above, I love the Tildon sheer sequin tank, which is simplistic in it’s embroidery with just a touch of sparkle. As it’s sheer, pairing it with a long-line black lace bralette provides a semblance of modesty, and helps to make the outfit both sexy and sophisticated. Nonetheless, as this birthday celebration is a family affair, to avoid scandalizing my brother I’d cover myself with a thinly striped black and white blazer. Finally, although they’re not a necessary part of the outfit, I am in love with Frye boots, which would be perfect for a winter’s walk around the city.

I hope you have a fantastic 30th Julie!!

 UPDATE: Here’s me at Carmine’s in my favorite new outfit!
