Happy Monday! I'm super excited for this week because my birthday is on Wednesday. The BIG 30 as people like to call it now! I'm definitely not one of those people scared of turning thirty or dreading the day.  I'm excited for birthdays especially when I get to spend the night out with my husband at a nice dinner. That's a treat! 

I had a fabulous time on Friday with my work friends.  They are literally the best group of work girl friends (or wives as people call them) I could ever ask for in life! It's amazing how much time we actually spend together during the school year. If you follow along on Instagram (@simple_ollie) and Snapchat (Simplyollie) then you got a glimpse at our fun night out full of rose drinking and dancing the night away! 

More importantly I got to celebrate with my kiddos and in-laws on Saturday night with tex-mex and margaritas. True Texas style! The kids loved that the waiters sang Happy Birthday to me in Spanish and made me wear a sombrero. They obviously loved the sweet treat as much as I did! It's not even my actually birthday and I feel so loved. Thank you to everybody! 

You guys this skirt is adorable and ON SALE! Kate Spade has stolen my heart over the past year and this piece takes me in many directions. I have so many ideas running through my head. I love just this simple look with a black top and blazer.  I'm also seeing it through the Fall and Winter with a chunky knit sweater, tights and booties. Check out this sweater that is currently on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you like mixing prints like myself this sweater would be the perfect piece for Fall. I've also linked these booties that are on sale at  Nordstrom as well.  They would be a great black bootie to get you through Fall. 

Another great look if you are like me is adding a graphic tee with a fun full skirt like this Kate Spade skirt. This graphic tee is currently on sale at Nordstrom. I like to wear my graphic tees tied in the front when I pair them with a high waisted skirt like this one. Pair this outfit with these flats and you're good to go!
