Hello my beautiful people !
Today I am finally posting about my 23rd birthday which was in April (that what happens when you don’t have a computer lol ) but I figured that it was better late than never. Also, I know that you can still get the one item of clothing I wanted to talk about in store so it is still relevant.
For my birthday this year I had planned a night out with my friends that Friday and my birthday was on the Thursday so I wanted to keep it low key on the actual day and decided just to go out for dinner with my Mom. Grandma and Jay. We went to The Keg Mansion in Toronto which I had never been to before and it was amazing. It used to be an actual Mansion that people used to live in, it was built in 1868 and was owned by various businesses until in 1976 it became The Keg Mansion. It is extremely interesting because the building is all very historical and pretty intact for a restaurant as well; as soon as you walk in you can feel the old elegance and charm of it. It is more than just a restaurant but also a piece of history that is so beautiful and interesting to walk through and look at all of the amazing vintage things inside the building ( which they also encourage you to do ). I loved the experience and plan on going back there again because the food was amazing (obviously it’s The Keg ) and I love historical buildings so it is probably the most interesting place to eat I have ever been in. I highly recommend going if you are ever in the Toronto area ! I only took this one photo of the building with my phone but next time I go I will bring my camera so I can take better photos of everything.
For my birthday dinner I decided to dress up a bit not only because it was my birthday but also because The Keg Mansion is a beautiful place and is more of a dressy occasion than just going to a regular restaurant. It was still kind of chilly outside in April so I decided to wear black tights under my faux leather skirt to keep my legs warm but balance it out with an off the shoulder top that I purchased from Topshop in London, England on our trip.
This top has very quickly become one of my favorite tops in my wardrobe and I have already worn it multiple times to multiple occasions. It fits so well and it so fluttery and beautiful that it can be worn with almost anything and look amazing. Also, because it is black it pairs with things even more perfectly and can be worn any season; it is very summery but throw on a jacket and it is still just as pretty. The way it flows over the body is also great for when you may have eaten a little too much and need to cover up a food baby. It is literally the most perfect top and it was not very expensive either and I am happy to say you can still purchase it in Canada at Topshop right now. So go out an buy it because you will not regret it. I also paired this outfit with my Sam Edelman studded heels to add some edge to the outfit and also dress it up. Without the heels this would be a pretty casual outfit I would say… It’s amazing what a pair of heels can do never take that for granted.
Here is the beautiful ( and scrumptious ) little red velvet cake my mom got for me, she’s so sweet. P.s. I would like to add that besides the one slice my mom had I ate this entire cake to myself… over a week span mind you, but I still felt disgusted with myself but also so impressed.
I had a really great Birthday and after having some cake and ice wine (mmm so good) Jay & I headed back home to get ready for the next day. I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday on the day though and my Mom, Jay and Grandma for a lovely dinner. Even though it was three months ago I am still thankful and you can never say it enough ! 23 has been a good year so far and I’m sure it will get even better.
Thank you for reading you lovely person I hope you enjoyed reading about my birthday and I hope your having a wonderful day !
