• Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear For Your Birthday to Catalina Island, Curvy Girl Edition, and Celebrity Inspired

    Spring is here!
    Well not officially, but the number of March Birthday What To Wear submissions indicates otherwise. Now I think I’m a bit tardy for a couple of these requests, but I’m hoping you ladies can still get a few wardrobe ideas out of today’s post.

    First up, Sammie writes, “Hi! I live in California. For my 26th birthday my boyfriend and I are going to Catalina Island for the first time and I’m in need of some outfit ideas. We’ll be spending the whole day there…think you can help? Thank you!”

    Catalina Island is a beautiful place. There’s a ton to do and you’ll be spending a lot of time walking around, so comfort is key.

    Opt for a simple caged playsuit accented by a pair of beige and black espadrilles (or Loeffler Randall two-tone embellished flat sandals) and a spotted Elizabeth and James sling bag.

    Keep your jewelry to a minimum with gold hoop earrings and a simple gold necklace. Pack a pair of sunglasses and a flirty bikini option–hitting the beach is a must for your Catalina trip.

    Kay writes, “I turn 22 in exactly 12 days! With that in mind, I am having a hard time trying to find the best outfit for this day. I want to be the life of the party and I want to stand out. I’ve had ideas but nothing was 100%. Please ladies if you could help me out! Thank you!”

    As is uniform for a birthday extravaganza, sparkle in a ombre sequin number and a pair of dazzling rhinestone pumps. Add a bit more bling with a gold Kotur miniaudiere, twist-effect midi rings, and poppy chandelier drop earrings.

    To complete the look, soften your beauty palette with a light pink lid, a simple nude lip, and a shimmering mani.

    And last but not least, reader Rolanda simply wrote, “My birthday is March 13th. Can you PLEASE HELP ME?”

    She then attached these celebrity looks as inspiration:

    It looks like you already have a few ideas up your sleeve! For one more wardrobe option, spruce up a white asymmetric zip front pencil skirt with a sequin top and shimmery metallic accents.

    Mix in a glimmering jewelry lineup with crystal quad drop earrings and a metal double bracelet. Complete the look with pops of pastel pink for a flirty birthday ensemble.

    And that’ll do it. Wishing you ladies a fabulous birthday!
