This is the outfit I wore to celebrate my 23rd birthday this past weekend. I organized a sushi dinner and invited some of my closest friends and family. Despite the constant food mistakes at the restaurant, we still managed to have a great time. No sushi dinner buffet is ever perfect... right?

The night before I also met up with another group of friends and we decided to have a taco night to celebrate a couple of birthdays including mine. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen these photos, but here are a few recaps (and yes, there was A LOT of dessert):


Overall it was a fantastic birthday! I'm optimistic about the upcoming year, and looking forward to seeing how it will unfold. One thing I do want to know is if 23 is the age you stop excusing yourself from doing things because you're "still young"? Am I officially... old?

  1. Loving this look! I want those pants!

    1. They are amazing and comfortable on another level!

  2. Anum!! You are so impeccably dressed! and so brave too with those pants =) I have a pair of bright coral pants that keep staring at me in my closet, and I'm always reluctant to put them on =( You're actually inspiring me to wear them now...great color combo! LOVE!!

    1. Louise, you just have to do it! Try with a simple outfit, so maybe your coral pants with a plain white or black top... you will love it so much. Once you get comfortable with that, then you can explore more with the colour!
