So, 22 had the Taylor Swift song, and 23 had Blink-182, what do I get for 24?? This past Saturday I came back to New York from winter break at home in Maryland on my 24th birthday. I can’t believe I’m another year older, mostly because 2020 feels like it never happened.

Anyway, I spent my birthday in NYC with two friends who visited. Despite the restrictions we were still able to do some shopping in Soho and then had appetizers and drinks at a really cool outdoor dining place. And then more appetizers and drinks closer to my apartment!

The night before, I went to dinner with my parents (Italian of course) and wore the outfit above. Knit midi skirts are my new obsession lately if you couldn’t tell! I love this one in particular because it’s not form fitting at all. It’s loose and so comfortable it feels like loungewear! I paired in with a fuzzy boatneck sweater for a neutral look.

Also, I have to take a minute to draw your attention to my scrunchie. I’ve been gravitating towards low ponytails lately and a fun scrunchie instantly makes it more chic! I have three of these oversize scrunchies and I’m obsessed!

Anyway, now that we’ve talked about the outfit, I thought it would be fun to share 24 facts about me. Keep reading to learn a little bit about the girl behind the blog!
