Stripes, satiny blue pleats, and maroon tights? This might not be the outfit I would pick from my closet as a whole to celebrate S.’s birthday, but since I’m pulling from my 30 for 30 selections, I think it does a good job of paying homage in spirit. It’s quirky but chic, a whimsical variation on classic pieces.
For my final twist: a trench coat, but done in dark denim.
So although I may look like I’m aspiring to Parisian velocouture chic, I’d prefer to think of it as an homage to my favorite cycling Romanian! Happy birthday, S.! Your thoughtfulness, passion, and drive are so inspiring to me. I’m so proud of all that you’ve accomplished in the past year and so excited for all of the fantastic things awaiting you in the year to come!
