I’d been eyeing this dress at American Apparel for weeks. So on my birthday morning I walked to the store right when they opened and bought this little green number.

Before dinner I hung out with my friend Shimpei (the awesome photographer of Mitograph) and we got birthday coffee and took photos.

One of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own…and that’s saying a lot.

I love Shimpei, he is SO sweet. He came over to our house on NYE and instead of partying, he just cleaned the entire time and made sure I always had a drink in my hand.

Seriously ladies, this guy is boyfriend material.

Alright, I hope you all have a wonderful week. I don’t have work today and this morning is Obama’s Inauguration!

All in all, I think it’s been a pretty successful birthday weekend.
