Birthday Dinner

Blazer: Gifted (NastyGal); Tank: Gifted (Ann Taylor); Skirt: bar III;
Shoes: Zara; Aviators: Ray-Ban; Ring: Kate Spade;
Bangles: Kate Spade, Ocean Leather, Gifted

This is what I wore for my birthday dinner last night with N. I treated myself yesterday with a little birthday shopping during my lunch hour. When I saw this skirt I thought it was perfect for both warm and cold weather, given that it'd look pretty darn cute paired with black tights and pumps or boots. N and I stretched our meal last night over multiple courses for 3 hours, which are my favorite kind of meals because you really feel like you get to enjoy every part of the dining experience without any rush. The food was fantastic and the ambiance and location were right on par as well. We started with a cocktail (gin for her, whiskey for him) and the Dungeness Crab & Bay Shrimp Tater Tots:

We shared the house salad which was exceptional and both ordered the special for our entree, which was smoked salmon over polenta with browned butter, roasted Chukar cherries, and chopped, seasoned almonds. NOM. For dessert, it was the birthday treat of my choosing and I went with the seasonal special: a beautiful pear tart served with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce:

We walked home with full bellies on a balmy evening. And even though I wasn't with my family, N spoiled me pretty rotten yesterday so it kind of made up for it :)

Here's to another year of happiness and love in the Emerald City!


  1. Happy birthday! Looks like you had a lovely dinner! Seriously, you can put anything in tater tots and I will eat it.

    I love the colors in the skirt and the shoes are gorgeous!

    Xoxo, Catie
