Today's Everyday Fashion: Almost My Birthday

Let the birthday celebration begin! The big 2-8 is coming up this Saturday, but I'm starting the fun early tonight with some blogger friends! My mantra for birthdays? Wear what you want! I used to wear a party dress to the office on my birthday. When people would ask why I was so dressed up, I would say "It's my birthday!" (duh) I haven't decided for sure if I'm going to wear this tonight, but whatever it is I guarantee it will be really, really fun because this is my one time a year to totally let loose! Do you dress up on your birthday?

ps. This shirt is way too bulky to tuck in! I appreciate your suggestions but besides not physically being able to tuck, I also kind of prefer the drama of it un-tucked. That is my whole point about it being my b-day - I'm like a little kid who wants to wear their cowboy boots and tutu. The more outrageous, the better because on this day anything goes. :-)
