Birthday Style Watch – the 30th edition

I turned 30 this past week and celebrated this weekend with a surprise birthday dinner followed by drinks downtown.  Since I didn’t know what was going on, I wanted an outfit that could go with the flow but still said birthday girl at the same time.  For my 30th birthday, I wanted a look that was sophisticated yet […]
