My 20’s were fleeting. Although I made millions of memories and began building an impressive shoe collection, it was as if I blinked and suddenly it was my 30th birthday. I didn’t know whether to trust everyone who was telling me “30 is the new 20”, or to cry myself to sleep...
My Perfect 30th Birthday Celebration
I decided I would make the most of it, and that began with my over-the-top in the best way 30th birthday party. I knew I needed the perfect shoe to remind EVERYONE that just because I was turning 30 did NOT mean my fashion sense was going to be any less FAB.
My birthday present to myself was a to-die-for pair of Manolo Blahnik black suede slingbacks that went perfectly with my fun flirty red birthday dress.
New Beau? New Shoes!
My 30th birthday brought me more than just champagne & cupcakes...this was also the night that I met my new beau. After meeting through friends at my party, we went on our first date...a romantic dinner followed by an outdoor concert which was perfect in the crisp spring air.
I wore the perfect heel that was fab yet classic to pair with my jeans, and my Jimmy Choo suede ankle booties were just that.
My European Adventures
My responsibilities were ever-increasing, which I loved, and I was offered a two month assignment in Europe! I was beyond excited. I knew I was going to be working hard and have little time to explore and have fun.
I held myself back from packing a dozen shoes too many, but made sure I packed my Louboutin pumps. They were the perfect shade of blue that would add a subdued pop of color to my fun, European-inspired outfits. Plus, I had to keep room in my luggage for the new shoes I might find during my travels!
I was so happy with my life, I didn’t know it could get any better.
Curious what shoes I spent a month's salary on in Paris and Milan? You’ll just have to wait until next time!
