Bold Birthday Lunch

Hi friends! Hope your week has gotten off to a great start.

This past weekend, I was able to get together with a group of my best friends (which was LONG overdue) to celebrate a girlfriend’s birthday. And what better way to celebrate than with lunch and drinks? Really, the closer I get to 30, the more I realize that meeting up for lunch or dinner is honestly the only way to celebrate a birthday anymore. 

For lunch, we went to a local spot here in downtown Lakeland called Mojo Federal. The restaurant is widely known for its mouthwatering BBQ and unique cocktails. My favorite side is their mac-n-cheese. It’s SO good! This time for my beverage, I ordered the Flying Peachy. Being from Georgia, it’s only natural that I ordered the peach drink, but this one had a little spin on it compared to other peach drinks I’ve had at other restaurants. This one had jalapeño syrup, and let me tell you, your girl could feel the buzz and the burn. It was made with whiskey, something I usually don’t go for, but I would definitely order again. Something about the small spice after every sip kept me going back for more.

Besides the amazing company, fancy drinks, and delicious food, the one thing that I was most excited for this past weekend was my outfit. 

When I saw each item online, I knew I just HAD to have them. I discovered all of these pieces at The Mint Julep Boutique. This online clothing boutique is based out of Alabama and offers clothes to women all over the world. 

So, for a Sunday birthday lunch with the girls, I decided to go with something a little bit more bold than what I would usually wear. Not to mention, the weather was a little cool this weekend (emphasis on the little), and with the Florida “winter” coming to an end, I knew I had to take full advantage of this last opportunity to wear a sweater. Y’all, look at this gorgeous, hot pink sweater. It is so flippin’ soft and I am obsessing over these bubble sleeves. It also comes in a cobalt blue color. I ordered a Small and it gave me the perfect oversized sweater feel, without being SO oversized. 

The acid wash, distressed jeans are to die for. The fringe at the bottom is perfection and the overall fit is extremely flattering. Think, mom jeans but with so much style. If between sizes, I would size up. These jeans do not have any stretch in them. These nude brown flat mules are so comfortable and run true to size. Definitely a new staple in my shoe collection.

As for my hat, I found this beauty at Forever21. I ordered the M/L size and it fits like a glove. It’s a struggle for me to find hats that are the right size. So needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when I found this one.

I just know these items are sure to sell out quick, so hurry and grab ‘em!
As always, stay candid! -K
