On Saturday I started celebrating my birthday early! October 2nd is the big day, but I couldn’t wait to celebrate. I started the celebration with brunch with a few of my friends at one of my favorite brunch spots. Sunday morning  my good friend from high school and her bf took me to breakfast, and Sunday night I had dinner with my siblings and 2 friends before we all headed over to the Barclays Center for Jay-Z’s concert. Guess what, the celebration doesn’t stop there! I’ll have updates throughout the week with my birthday festivities.

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my “All Black Everything” outfit. I was going for a trendy look so I wore leather shorts, lace top with black tank underneath, patterned tights, and wedge sneakers. Everything was super trendy, but I guess I gave off Sex Kitten instead lol. Those were not my intentions. I got SOOOO many stares. I didn’t think the outfit was as scandalous as people made it seem lol. It was definitely weird, maybe it was the red lip, who knows, but I still had a great time none the less. Outfit details in the caption.

Lace Top: Charlotte Russe, Camisole: Forever 21, Leather Shorts and Tights Target, Wedge Sneakers: Rouge

For brunch, I was reluctant to concede to the fall temperatures so I wore a shirt dress without tights and my burgundy wingtip heels. I should have put on tights, it was definitely a little chilly, but next time I wear this dress it will be with tights.

The amazing food!

Yes I wore snakeskin printed pants and I love them. When I first purchased the pants almost everyone I told or showed were not convinced that I could make these pants work. I think I did pretty good! These pants are probably the most comfortable pair of pants that I own. The material is extremely soft and I love that they have wide legs. I also love the versatility as they can be worn as high waisted pants as well. These babies will get a few more wears before it is time to pack them away until next year, but I absolutely love them! They are by Jaclyn Smith for Kmart (yes Kmart ) and a variation of these pants are currently on sale for $7.99, marked down from their $24.99 price tag (which is still inexpensive). Click here to purchase. I paired the pants with a basic white t-shirt from Forever 21, accessories from Luxe which can be found in Burlington Coat Factory, and my favorite shoes from Aldo.
