It's My Party





I searched for about a month for the perfect dress for my 21st. I wanted something bright, fun and me for under $50. Not that easy, let me tell you. I finally settled on this dress from L. Mae Boutique! It's perfect for a night out, light weight but really easy to accessorize!


I can't wait to go out with all my friends on Wednesday! Stay tuned for 21 lessons I've learned in the past 21 years, I guarantee my parents are going to like the first one.

UPDATE:I wrote this post about a week ago, and after I got the dress it barely covered my butt. Granted I am a very tall person and this tends to happen a lot. So I had to return it, and bought a navy dress with scalloped edges. It's adorable and I can't wait to wear it! If you are of average height, I recommend this dress!


What did you wear to your 21st?

    1. I wish i was able to wear pink, I was so looking forward to it! While waiting for my 21st was a little trying (I'm impatient and the baby of my friend group) I had great weather!

      Thank you! xoxo

  4. Navy dress with scalloped edges sounds beautiful! I wore a gold sparkly skirt with a black top, black tights, and black heels since my 21st was in the winter...it was a blast! Happy birthday...hope it's AMAZING!

  6. I was really sick for my 21st birthday (not even from anything fun!) so I just wore jeans and a leather jacket. I'm so glad you found a replacement dress in time for your big night!

  8. Oh no! I'm glad you found a replacement, plus navy & scallops sounds very pretty! If you don't mind me asking, how tall are you? I really love shift dresses but I'm never sure if they'd work for me! I'm not that tall, I'm only 5'7" lol.

    1. Haha I had a lot of fun, but I'm going to need to get used to drinking in public again! I studied abroad in Spain last fall and it was so much fun just going for drinks! I'm looking forward to that tonight!

  12. Hope that you had an amazing birthday! My mom bought me the perfect Lilly Pulitzer "party dress" for my 21st. I loved it so much that I wore it for graduation!
