It's My Birthday!

I have 2 reasons to celebrate. First and foremost, yesterday was my birthday! {if you read the title then that was no surprise haha} and second, its my 100th blog post! I've had a blast writing my blog and it's so fun to look back to my first few posts and see how much has changed! 

The more posts, the more exciting, but with birthdays -- you start dreading each one that leads you closer to 30. I am officially a mid-twenty year old -- Wasn't I just turning 20, like, yesterday? 

I've mentioned in a few posts that the honey and I are staying with our parents until we fly out next week. For dinner on the water with my babe and parents I sported my new maxi, long beaded necklace, along with my favorite summer clutch from Six Three Strings. {you can also see how I styled it here} The fun polka dots really pulls together all my favorite looks this season. 
If you follow my instagram you have already noticed I just can't put away this new necklace I picked up last week. If green is not your color Target has then in quite a few other colors. But for only $14 from Old Navy -- I LOVE! 

My advice to you, pop on over to Old Navy this week, as they currently have so many brightly colored summer essentials. Although my black maxi doesn't fall into the category of 'brightly colored' it has quickly become a summer essential. I mean, cotton maxis really do hold a special place in heart for summer evenings. Whats not to love? 

Maxi dress -- $25, Old Navy. | Green Necklace -- $14.00, Old Navy. | Clutch -- $30, Three Six Strings on Etsy {it was a custom order so due to the bigger size than listed on their site it was a tad more} . | Sandals -- $24.00, T.J Maxx.

One week until the big move! Make sure to check back next weekend for some fun pictures at our new place out West! Follow my instragram @xochristinemarie {or click the icon to the right} for daily pictures!
