Happy Birthday to Me!! + Mahogany Closet Mondays Fashion Link Up

So if we are friends on social media then you know that last Tuesday was my birthday! Yayyyy!! I kept it pretty low key on my birthday, I just went out with some of my friends.( The weekend before I celebrated with my honey but I will blog about that later :-) )We went to my friend's new spot Basic Cafe which was really nice. They have a killer warm kale salad and a great mimosa sampler, the apple flavored mimosa was my favorite. After we hung out at small neighborhood bar that makes great drinks for only $4. Can't bet that!!! :-) ... Even though we were keeping it pretty low key for my birthday I still wanted to have the it's my birthday pizzazz. I started off my getting my make-up done at the Mac counter. Blanca did an excellent job. For the outfit I opted for a cute little skater that I have had for a long time (this style works excellent with my body shape) and paired it with my new lace up gladiator heels.

Dress - Forever 21
Heels - JustFab
Clutch - Cole Haan
