I hope you had a great weekend!  My birthday was on Saturday and I celebrated with with my family.  I'm a big believer in stretching my birthday celebration out over a few weeks as I love any excuse to see friends.  Unfortunately, I guess my birthday dinner with my parents was a little too wild and crazy as I woke up on Sunday with a cold....  Hopefully I can knock it out pretty quickly as I hate being sick.

Have a great day and thanks for reading!

  10. You have just re-inspired me to wear my blazer vest! It's just been hanging in my closet. This is such a toughened up (but still very chic) look for you. Love it! And happy belated birthday! How did I not know -- I hope you had lots of cake and (Jeni's) ice cream!


  11. Oooo! Love this look! One of my favorites from you. That vest is a classic

  13. Oh my word I love those pants you are wearing!! So chic!


  14. I love a long vest. This is a great look. I love to belt mine and wear it to work. For some reason belting it makes it more corporate America. I like how you've kept it casual yet chic. (new post)

  15. I love your bag! It looks expensive and I was so happy when I read that it was from Old Navy!! :) Also really loving your accessories. XO

  16. Gorgeous Nicole! Happy late birthday. I love this vest. I have one that is a looser fit, but I love the structure of this one. Thanks for the giveaway!
