What I Wore: Before Thirty


Last weekend my friends Aleyda and I celebrated our birthdays with a luau-themed party, a donkey pinata, and a bunch of our friends and family gathered together to wish us a happy birthday. It was the very first party that le bf and I hosted at our new house, and despite the lack of a couch, we were somehow able to accommodate 30 or so guests. Great success…I think.

This year, I turned 29…which is only one measly year away from the big 3-0. I don’t know about you, but I get kind of touchy-feely about birthdays, and the prospect of a huge milestone looming sent me into a bit of a panic mode. Have I lived my twenties to the fullest? Have I accomplished the things that someone my age should accomplish? Did I cross-off all things on my “before 30″ checklist? I recently remembered that I actually had one, and while most items on it were indeed accomplished, others remained untouched. And since I still have 12 months to go before I enter another decade, perhaps I should just buck up and finish it off. I mean, how hard can it be to kick my fast-fashion habit? Or take better care of my skin? All of those things are no-brainers, and should be on my to-do list regardless of next year’s significance. Or at least that’s what I’m thinking right now. This probably deserves another post with an actual list…but I’ll leave it for another time.

Do you keep a checklist of things you wish to accomplish before a certain age? What are the items on your checklist that you most look forward to or maybe dread to do? Share in the comments!
