Last night I headed out with my family to celebrate my dad and mine’s birthday. His is on the 6th, and mine is on the 8th, so it’s always a joint celebration. I’d love to say the night was all smiles, but sometimes birthdays don’t end up the way you want them to and perhaps I expect too much out of them anyway!

But on to the outfit! I put to use two of my new items featured on my previous post: ASOS Curve Check Top and their oxblood jersey skirt. I swear these skirts are the most comfortable thing ever. The check top is great (even though its a little askew in the picture), but I’m not a fan of the step hem. I think because it fits tightly on me, the step hem doesn’t “lay” like it’s meant to. Also, I’m someone who always has trouble finding shirts that are long enough, and this top is almost too long on me. If you want it to fit loose, buy your normal size. If you want it snug, I’d size down once.



I paired it with black suede heels from Urban Outfitters and a fitted faux-leather jacket from I ran out of time getting ready and had to rush, so no jewelry with this outfit! I was pretty impressed that I managed to eat dinner without getting a spot on my white top. Definitely an accomplishment for me, haha 🙂
