It’s Gemini Season! Celebrating the Best Sign of the Zodiac
It’s Gemini Season!
It’s Gemini season, so of course we’ve got to celebrate! Here’s to the best sign of the zodiac, dual personalities and all. My birthday was this past weekend and Style of a Gemini‘s birthday is coming soon too! I like celebrating my birthday–it’s a chance to reflect and to shamelessly indulge. How many other times a year can I say “today is all about celebrating me”? After all, I’m not a Leo 😉
My birthday weekend (yes, weekend) was a great reason to get extra fancy, so I pulled this dress I found at Olive Ole. This shade of pink is making me into a believer. I used to be staunchly against pastels, but this borderline baby pink was calling me! Frankly, I blame Rihanna’s 2017 Spring collection for putting the idea into my head.
Also, I pushed myself a little out of my comfort zone with these clear lace-up heels. The clear shoe trend has mostly grated on my nerves (don’t get me started on how much I hated the clear thigh highs), but this application seemed subtle and a little sexier. They didn’t disappoint! I love how they elongate the legs. Even better, I got these for only $32, much cheaper than the Steve Madden versions.
Finally, as you might have noticed, I’ve been rocking a new hairstyle lately. Now, I’ve changed my hair a lot over the years, but this is the first time I’ve ever gone short. I made the decision to try this twist out at about 12am on a Tuesday. Now, this was a big deal for me—I started getting relaxers as a kid, so I’ve had straight hair for as long as I can remember. I’ve never voluntarily gone short. But for some reason, I felt like trying the combination of the two on a whim. Surprisingly, I loved it!
Another year older, and another chance to push myself a little more out of my comfort zone. And not just style-wise, either! I also like to use my birthday to reflect on how much I’ve grown, and to get excited for where I’d like to grow to in the days ahead of me. It’s not a milestone birthday, but 24 is feeling pretty nice to me.
When’s your birthday? Are you one of the #blessed to be born during the best season of all, aka Gemini season? 😉 Let me know in the comments below, and be sure to follow me on instagram!
Lots of love,
