Yesterday I celebrated my birthday. This hasn’t been a fabulous year for me having been diagnosed with breast cancer and having been through all of the things that go along with it. This year my birthday wasn’t about a number. It was about celebrating life with my amazing family. I had my hair done earlier in the day at Sparks to pamper myself a little bit and in the evening we had supper at my mum and dad’s with my family and my husband’s family. Since dinner was at the house it wasn’t fancy, but I wanted to wear something kind of special for my day. I had been waiting for the right evening to wear this amazing ASTR cardigan from Nordstrom Savvy. I love that it’s black and blue — one of my favourite colour combinations — and the fringes are so much fun! I paired it with a simple black silk tee underneath and these amazing J Brand jeans with little holes up the back. While I wanted some height, I didn’t feel it necessary to prance around the house in stilettos so I chose these simple booties with a chunkier heel. They are comfortable and didn’t distract from the rest of the details in the outfit.
