Birthday Wishes

It’s been a little bit over a week since I turned 31. I have to say, I don’t feel it and people say I don’t look it. It doesn’t really matter what year you are in your life, as long as you’re happy and healthy. That’s what matters. Without happiness, you’re stressed, and stress can bring you a world of complications. So, if you’re turning a year older, give thanks and put a smile on your face. Your heart, body and soul will thank you.

Speaking of soul, seems like an angel bit me in the ass and said “wear white on your special day”. I bought this sexy LWD 2, maybe even 3 years ago! And today I finally wore it! Sometimes when you have an event, the best buy is at the last minute. You don’t want to get stuck with an item you can’t wear on a regular basis, end up selling or giving it away because you think you’ll never wear it!

Today I’ve changed that way of thinking, although I did almost sell it -I just couldn’t resist the sexiness so I needed up holding onto it as long as I could! I added minimal nude sandals -you want all the attention to be on your white piece suit. The earrings were also part of the plan 2 years ago, and they also didn’t make it until now. Normally I would have thrown on some studs, but it was my birthday and my gut told me to go over the top!

Do you like to dress up for your birthday? Or are you a low key kind of gal?

Happy Long Weekend!

xoxo, BudgetSai

Stripes and White Denim

…and lots of chains in this look. I pulled my hair back, tied up my shirt and was ready for this week’s heat wave alongside my vintage Gucci bag; a shopper makes it so much easier to carry around your personal belongings. You can do like Fabolous does, and just throw it in the bag!

How are you all handling the heat in the N Y C? Do you keep cool in denim like I do? 

xoxo, BudgetSai
