Nicole P. wrote: Hellooooo! As much as I have been trying to forget it, put it off, time travel back a year (or 3), my 30th birthday is looming. April 15th to be exact. My husband and I are having a little family and friends BBQ to celebrate the next day. Since we are in NJ, we are hoping for a warm enough day to enjoy the outdoors, if not we'll be moving the gathering inside. But I'd love a new casual outfit to make the big 3-0 a little less scary. I'm 5'10" and a size 12. I don't need tall sizes, but do prefer shirts to go longer than just hitting at the waist. No heels, skinny jeans, leggings or short dresses for the day please, besides that I'm up for anything! Maybe something w/ a cardigan/jacket of some sort would be great since we might be outside. And because it's not that far away, I'd rather not order anything online. I'd like to spend no more than $150-$175.
Thanks so much!

Hey Nicole, Robin here. Happy birthday! Sounds like you've got a super day here. I put together three outfits that should all be casual and comfortable, but allow you some options for how dressed up you want to feel. All of these items are from major retailers, so you can pick them up without too much trouble. Enjoy your party!
