18th Birthday!

Today is my 18th birthday, making me the legal drinking age in Alberta. Fun! I had a really great day. This afternoon my dad and I went to Future Shop and bought my laptop, then we were going to have lunch at a nearby Irish pub, but it was closed for renovations so we headed to Julio's Barrio. As well as splitting an appetizer plate, I had a raspberry lime margarita followed by a strawberry daiquiri. Yum. For dinner, I went out to Earl's with my parents and my girlfriend. Earl's is my favourite restaurant; along with great food, I also had two white peach bellinis. I seem to be a sugary sweet drinks kinda' girl.

OOTD: 18th birthday

Birthday outfit

skirt & shoes
I thrifted this skirt months a go, but I've been saving it for my birthday dinner.

I really wanted to treat myself to a pair of heels for my birthday. I've never really owned or worn heels, but I wanted to give them a try and though my 18th would be the perfect opportunity. But after a lot of searching, and a lot of hobbling, I think it's safe to say that heels aren't for me. I did, however, buy myself these cute dressy flats. They're my "18th birthday, I am a grown woman who can go out for drinks and look hot doing it but I just can't wear high heels and that's fine by me" shoes. Uhm, yeah.

It was Bellini Tuesday so I saved a few dollars on the drinks.

Earl's penne alfredo is my favourite.
