SCALLOPED LACE + LEATHER

B&B Lace-13

I am still floating on cloud nine from the best birthday weekend I’ve ever had. My hubby planned the most amazing surprise for me that I was definitely not expecting.  When I woke up on Saturday morning, he told me that my sister and friend would be taking me out for a spa day.  I’ve been working non-stop for weeks now and this sounded absolutely perfect.

The girls whisked me away to get blow-outs at Drybar, then we made our own salads at Sweet Green and we then went toThread on Melrose Ave to get our eyebrows done (all of which I highly recommend!).  From there, the girls drove me back home. When we walked inside, Phil gave me a big hug and said there was something out back in our apartment’s parking lot that he wanted me to see. He’s 6″4 and the man walks super quickly so I ran outside to follow him.  

When we got there, I heard a crowd yell “surprise” and it took me a second to realize that I had just walked out into the most adorable birthday party! A woman quickly walked up to me and handed me a baby Dachshund puppy to hold! The puppy melted in my arms and to my left, I then noticed a big pen full of more puppies! #heavenonearth.  

From a DIY photo booth Phil revamped from our wedding to amazing catering from Veggie Grill, a cute tent to sit in, a bunch of DIY elements, our friends (and did I mention PUPPIES?), I had the best day! I am so thankful for my husband and I look forward to seeing where this year takes us.

Outfit-wise today, I’m wearing a navy lace tube top paired with black linen shorts and my favorite leather jacket. I recently scooped up my lace top from Zara. I’m not usually a fan of tube tops but there was something about the scalloped lace on this one that I loved.  It’s actually now the only tube top I own but I’m really happy I bought it because I think it’s going to be a fun, versatile piece. I look forward to pairing it with a white pencil skirt or shorts this summer too.
