I’ve always loved the idea of a flow-y blouse but have never been able to find one that looks right on me. I found this last week at a Korean fashion store called Fashion Q (similar to Forever 21) and have been obsessed with it ever since. Shockingly the small fits perfectly and gives me the right amount of blous-y/flow-y feel without it being too overwhelming.  I love that I can wear this with shorts, jeans and skirts. As I mentioned in my last post, there are ties at the bottom and it looks great when worn casually but I prefer it tucked in for a dressier outfit.

The quality of items from Fashion Q is nothing to write home about. It’s comparable to Forever 21 quality and most of the clothes are very trendy. I was so torn between this color (navy/cream) and orange/cream. I was almost about to get both but refrained since I have way too many duplicates in my closet already. I figured I would get much more wear out of the navy.

This past weekend, hubby and I celebrated my birthday (officially) and had an amazing time in Orange County. I went to my favorite mall – South Coast Plaza. It’s always a treat because I live extremely far away and I get super excited any chance I get to go.

We went to the Chanel Boutique in SCP and was surprised at my extra birthday gifts. I got a this amazing Chanel pendant necklace with matching earrings. The earrings are bigger than normal studs but I really like the size.  I love getting Chanel pieces from the actual boutique because you get the beautiful packaging, signature camellia flowers, bag and ribbons. I don’t know about you but I love pretty packaging : )

We ate at a restaurant called Big Fish. It’s not a typical restaurant I would choose for my birthday only because it’s very loud and more of a bar type of atmosphere. I usually like to dine on the water in a more romantic scenery. I had soft shell sliders last year and have not been able to stop thinking about them so we went back to fulfill my seafood cravings.  There’s always a long wait but it’s definitely worth it. We waited for well over an hour but got a great seat with a nice view. I almost died from hunger but it was well worth it:)

We had lobster mac and cheese, crab cake BLT on sweet hawaiian roll, lobster rolls and s’mores with vanilla ice-cream for dessert. The prices are so affordable given they are in a very touristy area and across from the beach.  Thank you hubby for a wonderful birthday (and all my gifts)!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! 🙂

  1. Happy (belated?) birthday, Annie! Navy blue and green is a most unusual combination. Of course, if anyone could make it work, it’s you. The skirt is very nice along with the nautical shirt. Good food there, too! 🙂

  11. Happy Birthday! So many new Chanel pretties for your collection! I agree that the navy version would probably get more use than the orange. I’ve had this kind of blouse in my head since I saw Kelly’s and now you’ve got it further lodged in my brain. Must. Resist. 🙂

  15. I had no idea it was your birthday. Happy belated birthday. Looks like you had a blast with all that delicious food. The lobster roll is seriously making me drool haha…By the way, I love AT’s ponte skirt. It’s the most comfortable and easy to wear skirt. I have one in 00P and it’s a bit tight on me since I gained weight, but I can still manage to make it fit because it stretches haha…
