What I Wore for My Birthday Dinner at Picca: H&M Midi Skirt

The Scene
For the first time in about 10 years I didn't throw a party for my birthday. All I wanted was a delicious dinner with my two delicious favorites. And that's exactly what I got at Picca, a hot new Peruvian place in Beverly Hills that you HAVE TO try.

And because my MOTHER was still hungry, churros. Sinful, stuffed churros that ooze when you bite into them, after you've dipped them in sauces.

Our big joke is that when a dish is good my mom, ever the competitive chef,  puts on her glasses to inspect the ingredients. She kept those suckers on the entire time at Picca.

And Mr. D who doesn't like to eat (sigh) gobbled everything up.

The Commentary
Dressed for my beautiful mama tonight. To honor all the pain and suffering she endured 34 years ago, passing an 8 lb bowling ball out of her little body.

Went girly and frilly and pretty with the midi skirt. I adore it.  The color and the twirliness...even though it is probably the least flattering thing I own across my own ever expanding, perfect for child bearing hips. Sigh. The belt helped by creating a focal point and the shoes were a nice distraction, drawing the eye to the thinnest part of my body.

Not my favorite birthday look since I started blogging: that award goes to my Madonna Masquerade look.
The Olympics start the day before my birthday next year so that's going to be the theme.  Get your singlets and track shoes ready.
