Exciting news everyone! I turn 22 tomorrow! 🙂 For this birthday, I wanted to keep things pretty low key. All I wanted to do was have a nice dinner for two at one of my favorite restaurants in the Short North – and that’s exactly what I got. The night started out with my boyfriend taking me to Sephora to pick out whatever I wanted (best birthday gift, am I right??). Afterwards, we headed downtown to Forno, an “elevated eatery with swanky decor serving stone-fired New American eats for dinner & weekend brunch”, as their website describes it lol.
My meal was extremely delicious, and the night was filled with endless laughs in an amazing atmosphere. And what topped it off was the pumpkin pie I got instead of a traditional birthday cake. If you know me, you know I love me some pumpkin pie haha.
I call this day “a day of celebrations” for three reason. The first reason was obviously to celebrate my birthday. The second reason was I got clearance to get rid of my boot! My achilles is healing great and all of my rehab is helping a ton. I’m still working on strengthening it, but things are looking up. The last reason this was a day of celebration is because it was my boyfriend and I’s year and a half anniversary, so we got to celebrate each other as well.
Now on to outfit details! I wore a super cute white, lace top from Shein.com that added a lovely romantic vibe to the look. I paired it with my favorite high-waisted, ripped Express Jeans I got at a Discount Fashion Warehouse (for only like $10 too, best deal I’ve ever gotten lol). I had to wear some Nike Air Max Thea’s because I still gotta support my limbs haha it’s only been three weeks since I had my surgery. Because it was a little chilly outside, I put on a sleek, black leather jacket from H&M that added an edgy feel to balance out my lace top. Lastly, I carried one of my favorite Chanel inspired bags from Target to complete this birthday OOTD.
This was such an amazing night that I’ll probably always remember. Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes and cheers to 22!
