Birthday Outfit in Manhattan

My birthday dress HAD to be just as spectacular as my birthday. So, without question, I chose this bright orange/red swing dress to wear on my special day. It’s lightweight material and design had me feeling like a movie star all day long whilst still being comfortable on those sticky subways and humid streets. This dress did all sorts of memorable things starting with mass at St. Patricks Cathedral, a walk in Central Park, brunch in the perfect hole in the wall restaurant with the best vodka pasta and mimosa’s ever and last but not least, shopping on 5th avenue.

I had the best 21st birthday. It started at midnight at Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square with my first legal drink being a delicious daiquiri and surrounded by a bunch of chill, cool people singing me Happy Birthday. Our waitress went over and beyond for me to feel special in those first moments of being 21. We didn’t end up back in our hotel until 3am or so and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It feels so satisfying being twenty-one. Finally, right?

These photos were taken right after a beautiful mass (The mass was about marriage. How funny! I got engaged that night.) outside of St. Patricks Cathedral. We went on to eat the best pasta and pizza  on this planet and afterwards walked it off at Central Park where I spotted the most beautiful bride (all the signs were there.) I did a little damage inside Anthropologie and Zara and it was already time to get ready for our cruise that took us around the city. A New York minute is no joke.

And the rest is history…

  1. Girl, I JUST saw this dress at Anthro a couple of hours ago and came so close to buying it! I didn’t see it until I had already checked out and now I’m really wishing I went back for it. So pretty! xo
