I know it’s no longer 2017, but I had the most perfect birthday and I need to talk about it. I spent it helping to host an event at work for our customers with some of my favorite Colorado gals. It was a fun and fulfilling day that only got better when I looked up from the counter to see B walking into the store. He and his parents had arranged a big surprise visit for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. We headed to one of my favorite Denver restaurants, Osteria Marco, for a dinner of bread, cheese, and cocktails. Oh, and I went home with a couple of new pieces I bought myself from the store that I thought I’d share with you. That’s right, it’s time for the Birthday Splurge 2017.
If you’re like me, you’re scrambling right now. Holiday parties and get togethers left and right and I feel very unprepared. The one thing about party wear is that I don’t tend to get good continued use out of the pieces. I’ve rounded up my favorite options for your holiday parties and events that you can wear again and again after the party is over. PS I’ve included both plus size and straight sized options. Everybody wins!
Yesterday was the first day it felt like Fall here in Denver. It was rainy and chilly. The sweaters were out in full force. I made pumpkin soup and baked some biscuits. It was perfect. So of course, I have had Fall clothing on my mind and I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of things. I haven’t gone through my cold weather clothes yet (which probably would have been a good idea before I bought more…), but I think all the new additions will work well with what I already have.
