At the beginning of the month, I celebrated my 19th birthday with my friends and family! Although I could not celebrate with my whole extended family as per usual, it was still a birthday to remember! I spent my day doing the things I love: baking and spending time with loved ones.
The Birthday fit:
On my birthday, I had a few of my friends over to celebrate at a distance. I decided to wear a Lilly Pulitzer X Target jumpsuit from their collab last year. They do not sell these in stores anymore, but you can find it on Poshmark! The fabric was very breathable so wearing it on a hot summer’s day was no problem. The cut of this jumpsuit is very flattering, and for me, it was a perfect length with my Steve Madden platform sandals. I finished off my look with a Lilly Pulitzer scrunchie bow. I wore the “Featured in Totally Blossom” pattern. My birthday outfit was very fun, summery, and simple which is why I loved it so much!
I started my birthday as I always do, baking my birthday cake! This year, I made a two-tiered cake: a two layer, 8-inch funfetti cake and a two-layer, 6-inch chocolate oreo cake. I am still trying to perfect those recipes, but I can’t wait to share them with you once they are absolutely perfect!
I then decorated it with a simple, light purple buttercream frosting, white shell borders, and white double drop lines. I also topped the cake with sugar cookies that I cut out to say 19 rather than using fondant. I found that sugar cookies are less delicate and easier to work with. I used the extra cookie dough to make small hearts and stars covered in sanding sugar for a little side dessert. They were delicious and went perfectly with the cake!
Sadly, I did not take a single picture of just my cake display! Totally unheard of! We’ll try again next year!
Since I do yoga every day, sometimes twice a day, I have been running out of yoga clothes to wear. This cute and comfy set from Athleta is perfect. The leggings are their Elation Snow Dye 7/8 Tight in Rosario Pink. They are ultra-high rise, so it is super flattering and holds everything in. This fabric is perfect for hot yoga because it is stretchy enough to dive deep into yoga poses with ease while also being very breathable and sweat-wicking to keep you cool in the hot studio. The sports bra is their Exhale Printed Bra A-C in Rosario Pink Snowdye. This fabric is the same as the leggings: very stretchy and beathable. The bra also comes with removable pads for extra support, if desired. These leggings and bra are not only perfect for yoga, but they are also comfortable for everyday wear!
Lululemon Light Purple Running Shorts:
The next piece of clothing I got are these Lululemon Hottie Hot Shorts II in Serene Blue. Although I have to admit that I really don’t like running, I have been in search of short and airy athletic shorts. These shorts are exactly what I was looking for. They are extremely comfy to just lounge around in and are perfect for working out. They are very lightweight and breathable with a pocket and zipper pocket to put small things like house keys in.
Lululemon Running fit:
The last outfit set I got was also from Lululemon. I have recently been obsessed with long sports bras that I could wear as a top when I am working out, but good ones are so hard to find. This is Lululemon’s Energy Bra Long Line Medium Support sports bra, and this is the perfect long sports bra because it is super cute and comfy with a trendy, strappy back. The sizing does run small, so if you are looking for a looser, comfier fit, I would size up. I also got these speed up short 2.5″ in black. They are very versatile and very cute too. They are so comfy, yet so breathable, it’s perfect for running, hiking, and just lounging around the house.
