On Saturday, I turned 30. I’ll admit that I wasn’t too excited about this birthday—do I have to be a grown-up now?—until I found this floral cut-out dress. There’s something about showing a little skin that makes me feel ready to party (cue Kristen Wiig). Maybe it’s because I went through college with an exposed midriff. Thanks to subtle side cuts, the look feels more sophisticated and less sophomore year. I went with a chunky heel—I love how the straps echo the dress’ black trim—and debuted my new onyx necklace, a birthday gift from my husband. Oh, and when I said party? I meant enjoy a nice chardonnay at a fancy restaurant. I guess 30 isn’t so bad, after all.
