Chic Casual Ashro Attire for My Milestone Birthday Vacation
In my family, milestone birthdays are a really big deal. We go all out with the huge birthday parties coupled with wonderful commemorative decorations. But for my 55th birthday, I wanted to do something really intimate, unique, and distinctive as I continue to live my life fully, boldly, and creatively. I shared with my husband Tony that I wanted to take an amazing vacation with just the two of us. While I chose a nontraditional method of celebrating my milestone birthday, I have embraced a newfound tradition.
Individuals are now ordering the three to five feet tall decorative standup numbers and having a birthday photo shoot. I thought I would do just that. I organized a photo shoot featuring stunning Ashro ensembles. I absolutely love this company which is the premier clothing brand for Black women. I decided to select sophisticated and classy casual attire for both my photo shoot and to wear throughout my stay at a wonderful hotel in warm and sunny Ocala, Florida.
While it was just hubby and me on my amazing trip, for sentimental reasons, I wanted my beautiful family to be a part of my milestone birthday. I was able to include them in subtle ways by wearing jewelry that my son Jay gave me for my birthday, the corsage that my daughter Antasha and son-in-love Jules gave me to wear at their wedding, and a family heirloom that my mother Lizzie entrusted to me. My younger sister Natalie styled my hair beforehand and my older sister Sylathia sent and electronic gift for us to eat lunch after the photo shoot. The photo credit goes to my incredible husband.
My makeup, featuring BECCA shimmering skin protector, SIGMA IVY eyeshadow, and SIGMA liquid lipstick in venom, was compliments of My Cosmetic Counter.
