Birthday Outfit: Maxi Cutout Dress

Happy Thursday, marblelous babes! I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that my new semester starts next week, eek! Can I fast forward to Thanksgiving + Christmas and skip the new semester altogether?

As some of you may already know, I turned 22 last week! I may not be a Taylor Swift fan, but I had the song “22” stuck in my head all day long on my birthday. My sweet boyfriend, bless his heart, bought me a bunch of mint green colored balloons and naturally, my first instinct was to take some birthday pictures!

Let me tell you, trying to capture the perfect shot with balloons is not as easy as I expected it to be. It also didn’t help that we were along the shoreline, which meant my hair and balloons were going crazy thanks to the wind. It was such a chaos and admittedly, I got a little frustrated. In the end, though, we managed to get some pretty decent shots.
