Happy Thursday! So Sunday was my BIRTHDAY, I'll still be celebrating 'till the end of this week!........oh yeah it was father's day too (shoot out to my dad, he's the best dad ever!)...I kept the celebration small with good friends and family. I've notices, whenever I've had a birthday people always ask my age, I'm usually scared tell them my age (Let's see if you can guess my age?) Seriously, my face doesn't match my age. Maybe I'll appreciate this when I'm forty...

I made a list of seven things that I will try to accomplish for being one year older:

1. For this year,  my motto is out with old and in with the new
2. Getting rid of my old clothes that I don't wear
3. Reflecting on my direction in my life (especially how to make my blog the way I want it to be )
4. Finishing things that I've started
5. My number 1 rule don't waste time on silliness straight up I'm too old for silliness
6. Striving to be the best Akinyi I can be (Hopefully, you'll like the new me)
7. Enjoying times spent with my close friends and family

Cheers to getting one year older and thanks for all the support that you all have given my blog !!!!

Tell me, what is the best or worst birthday you've had so far?

P.S. Sorry you can't really see my dress, it's a-line dress with green stripes. The pictures have too much lighting, I hope you still enjoy the photos!

Forever 21: Dress & Jacket & Bracelets
Rue 21: Necklace 
Nine West: Bag 
Kenneth Cole: Black Gold Pump
Makeup: Revlon Colorstay Liner 

Happy Monday! I forgot to mention, when I went to Hilton Head Island, SC (for my friends wedding), there were so many outlets. One of the stores, I came across was the Kenneth Cole store. I originally went into the store not wanting to buy anything.  I couldn't resist, as I saw this shoe I absolutely fell in love...hahaha I tried on the shoe almost three times by the third time, I put the shoe back (crazy right?) The cashier was like your not getting that shoe it's 50% off...What!?!? I literally ran back to get them, I told you I had fell in love...Such a steal!

Well, I have a confession,......I'm a polka dot MANIAC, I have everything imaginable of polka To me polka dots are like the new black, they'll never go out of style. This print is incredibly playful, classic, and darn right you can wear it to any occasion. I decided to wear this dress to church, which is such a perfect church attire. What I love about this dress, you can change it from day to night by just adding more color with a bright necklace or bracelets.  Certainly polka dots are a timeless pattern, but by far eye-catching!

So, you'll get the chance to see 6 more outfits with the Kenneth Cole pump at the end of this challenge rate the best look! Have a good rest of the week!
