My Birthday Weekend

Hello Everyone! I hope your week is starting off well. :) I apologize for not having my regular *Sunday Shopping* post yesterday, but I have a really good *excuse*. Saturday was my 40th Birthday, and my husband surprised me with an overnight stay at one of the Disney Resort hotels. We didn't get back until yesterday afternoon, and then I had a late lunch with my mom and sister, followed by a little bit of shopping. It was a very enjoyable and fun-filled birthday weekend. :)

Our stay at the Disney Resort was very relaxing and enjoyable. The hotel was gorgeous, the view from our room on the 15th floor was amazing, and the service was excellent. DH took me out to dinner at a beautiful restaurant, and here is the outfit I wore: 


The Details:

*J.Crew Pleated Paulette Top. This is a Collection piece and absolutely gorgeous IRL. It is very well made, the color is divine, and the quality is superb. I love it and received several compliments on it while at the hotel, too. It is currently sold out, but there is always the possibility of finding one on Ebay or the JCA Weekly Exchange, if you're interested in it. Here are a couple of options with a similar concept: Click here and here.

*J.Crew Matte Jersey Curator Pant (love these, too...very comfortable and flattering on), similar here and here.


*J.Crew Pearl Garden Bracelet, similar here and here.

*Multi-Strand Faux Pearl Twist Necklace, similar here (in Pearl) and here.

*J.Crew Pearl Ring, similar here and here.

*La Regale Large Gathered Satin Clutch (in Champagne), similar here and here.

My Dinner Outfit Polyvore:

Have a beautiful and blessed day!

  11. Happy Birthday!

    I recently got this top on popback and just tried it on Friday. Was so disappointed as even though the tags were attached and it look new it had two black marks/thread running through the front pleating and along the side near the buttons. Really weird. You are right. It is made well and very pretty overall. But watch out for popbacks! Yikes.

    Glad you had a wonderful birthday.

  41. FFM: How baggy are the curator pants? Were they TTS or did they run big?
    Love your pictures!

  42. Hi Carrie! The Curator pants are baggy, but not *out of control* baggy. I normally wear a size 2 in J.Crew pants, ordered that size in the Curators and like the way they fit. I would say to go with your *normal* J.Crew pant size. :)

  43. Thanks! I found them tonight at my local store. PS: Fantastic birthday present from your hubby!
