Candy + Clothes

Candy + Clothes. These are the things that make me happy on any given day. I think that’s a true statement for all woman. And people in general.

So. I’m 27 today.

I don’t know what else to say about that. I’m not into celebrating my birthday. Yes, I am one of those people. I appreciate well wishes and cards, and who can turn down presents, but I don’t need, or want, the hoopla. I’ll be honest, my birthday turns me into a brat.

Honestly, I don’t like being disappointed. My birthday always tends to lead to disappointment and I’d rather bypass that and just enjoy a regular day.

So. Let’s move on. I just felt the need to represent the people who don’t like birthdays. I’m not a kill joy; quite the opposite.

27. It’s such an odd age. I am in my late twenties. It kind of makes me want to barf.

If there is an Urban Outfitters Surplus store near you, get there. The entire store is on sale. And they have ping pong, foosball, arcade games, and a photobooth. Win.

We cheated with the photobooth and used our own camera.


I play a mean game of ping pong. Meaning, I am terrible and I am a poor sport.


Candy galore.


The only thing I enjoy about my birthday is that I get to eat whatever I want and I don’t feel guilty about it.

    I don’t mind aging too much, but birthdays are such a let down sometimes. You get such wonderful, stress-free parties when young. It sets the bar way too high! Happy birthday!

    Hope you are having a nice birthday 🙂 You look very chic. One of my good friends is 27 and she is the coolest so I think it’s a great age. And I really need to check out that UO surplus store!

    Yup, totally can relate. I really don’t like my Birthdays, most of the time I’m disappointed, because of my high expectations, so now I spend them home alone with pizza and buy some fashion crap 😀

    Happy birthday nonetheless 😀

    Absolutely love your booties ^_^

  5. Love this outfit on you! And happy birthdayyy!!!! I’m the same way, I don’t like a big fuss but I do enjoy cake and presents (just not the singing of Happy Birthday, even when I was little I cried or hid when people sang (we have it on video)

    Haha, I think I had a similar guttural reaction when I turned 27. Late twenties does have a certain unpleasant ring to it. Then I turned 30 this year, and 27 suddenly seemed wonderful!

    Hope you have a super amazing day! Loving the stripes on you here 🙂

  7. Niki said:

    I love your outfit so much! So chic 🙂
    Happy birthday, I’m the total opposite, I love my birthday!

    Love your shorts and striped top. I’m not into making a big fuss about birthdays but I do like having cake, lots and lots of cake.

  9. Olivia said:

    I love these shorts and I’m just so in love with your cheek bones 😀

  10. I love the stripes and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I am the SAME exact way on my birthday not wanting to be disappointed and not needing the hype. A nice but simple day is totally a-ok with me!
    Also, there’s a bar my bf and I like to play a terrible yet aggressive game of ping pong at haha!
    Have a wonderful day!

    Greetings from Germany,


  12. well happy belated birthday! you look absolutely fabulous…of course! and if I remember correctly, 27 was a great age. It’s gonna be a good year for you!


  13. Happy (now belated) Birthday! We are practically twins, who knew? You’re right, 27 is a weird age… Too young to be thirty, but now maybe too old to be mid-twenties?
