Your birthday girl: OOTD + FOTD, what I wore for my birthday

Let's face it: I'm getting older. This means a few days ago I was a birthday girl (again, I mean it was my birthday)! Nothing special, but, in my opinion, every single gathering is a good occasion to look at one's best.
What I wore for my birthday? Here you have some outfit and make-up pictures...

Your birthday girl: OOTD +FOTD, what I wore for my birthday

Sorry, but I'm not a very romantic girl despite I like heels and dresses.
I wore a thrifted satin violet dress with a sapphire blue Promod asymmetric cardigan, a pair of Pompea grey decorated tights, a Pimkie satchel and a pair of grey ankle boots made in Italy.
These shoes are very comfortable... bought for my dissertation, strutted every time I can!

Then a faux leather Terranova jacket and an adorable blue and white kanzashi flower ring by Kimono Design. I've kicked off the sweetness with that jacket and my make-up...

What a better companion for this pyjama than a good book?
Here's the newest work by Alberto Angela, the most famous Italian TV science communicator, about Leonardo da Vinci: "Gli occhi della Gioconda. Il genio di Leonardo raccontato da Monna Lisa".
As all his essays, it's an enjoyable reading, thanks to his quick and simple style, informative and informal. I usually read more academic essays but...

Most of all, I enjoyed staying with my family, especially with that special person who gave me this little dome cake.
A strawberry cake with glittery jelly and an inspiring card with the most precious words I've ever read and received in all my short life.

Birthday cake, glitter strawberry cake

By the way, this cake was a sugar bomb and a pleasure for my eyes.
Thank you for stopping by, thanks again and again.
