If you know anything about me, you know that over the last 2 years, I’ve been working on being healthier and changing my life into a more active and fitness conscious life. The first photo in this set is from my 25th bday, the middle is 26 and the right is 27 (this year).
There has certainly been a change in the last two years and seeing it right in front me of puts it all in perspective.
My biggest accomplishment? Almost getting rid of that gut of mine! Sheesh, it almost looks like a baby bump in last year’s photo!
In between my 25th and 26th bdays, I had lost some pounds, but between 26 and 27, those pounds added up to almost a full 100, so I had to go with something short and tight. I just had to.
I scored this leopard print number at Forever 21+ for $27.50. It was on a random rack and there were no more left, so of course I snatched it up.
I usually like using leopard as a statement piece, but since I am making my dress an entire statement, I wanted to keep the accessories simple.
I added teal shell earrings from H&M for $2.95, black sheer stockings from Avenue for $5, black patent and pewter heels from Avenue for $34.90 and a teal beaded bracelet from Buffalo Exchange for $3. I’m excited to see where I’ll be on my next bday!
