turtle on the halfshell

{ What I Wore: J.Crew Factory Blazer // dress c/o Red Dress Boutique // J.Crew Men's belt // Sole Society wedges, last year (similar here) // Yuni Kelley link bracelet // Tory Burch tortoise cuff, bought from a fellow blogger // Anthro sunglasses

Well in very un-Jessica like fashion, my birthday came & went without me making a huge to-do about it. Is this what 26 feels like? I don't know about that quite, but this IS what 26 looks like.
In my 26 years I have learned that 3 of my favorite things are: blazers, tortoise & scallops.
And on a girls' birthday she is certainly entitled to wear all three!
(because seriously, how fab is this dress!)

What would your "birthday suit" look like?

P.S. Don't forget to enter to win a pair of pretty stud earrings from JoJo Loves You {here}

  11. I really love this outfit! The scalloped hem on that dress is amazing. I have a similar striped blazer I was thinking of selling, but now I feel I can get more wear from it first :)
