Baba's Birthday







Lace Top: Xhilaration | Tank: Merona | Jeans: BlankNYC | Shoes: Steve Madden | Lip Liner: MAC (in Staunchly Stylish) | Lipstick: MAC (in Kinda Sexy)

Yesterday we celebrated Tony's dad's 84th birthday. Tony was a bit of a surprise so he came a little later in his parent's life. We celebrated at Tony's brother's house. When there are quite a few of us like there was last night our go-to meal is carne asada and chicken asada with all of the fixins for a taco bar. It's one of my favorite meals and a great way to feed the masses. We had such a nice time celebrating the patriarch of the family. He is such an incredible man that has so much to be celebrated. Some of our nephews refer to him as "The General" because he is definitely the boss of the family, but with the kindest demeanor. You won't hear from him in conversation all that often but when he speaks you listen! He's extremely proud of his family and rightfully so. He gave up so much to be sure that his four children had the opportunity to be successful and they definitely served him proud and then some. He is the sweetest man and I could not be more blessed to be able to call him Baba (dad in Arabic). 

This lace overlay is a great way to dress up a tank on one of these warm transitional winter/spring days and it's only $23!! I own the tank I am wearing in five colors and for good reason, it is super soft and so reasonably priced. I have this top paired with my favorite skinny jeans and the block heeled sandals that I can't get enough of. I wore this outfit all day around Vegas for shopping and a little bit of machine playing. It was so effortless and comfortable. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
