What to Wear: Birthday Girl

Here's a fun idea: a couple girls requested a What to Wear for their friend's birthday!
Our friend is a fun creative woman; wife and mother of two. She is turning 30, and we want to surprise her with an 'out on the town' outfit as well as an got it...out on the town!

We live in DC which is a fairly conservative town for dressing and as a mom we want for her to have something versatile that she can wear to church, a wedding, an evening out with the girls and maybe an evening out with the hubby....all in one depending on the accessories.

With spring almost here, it would be great if we could find something that she can wear in the last few weeks of winter, drop a layer and wear in the spring/summer too.

We are looking for fun, classy, and sweet.

So considerate! Here are my recommendations for the birthday girl:

Skirt - Adorable classic navy skirt with button pocket details. On sale for $30!
Blouse - A ruffled silk georgette top will be reserved for special occasions only. I'm a huge klutz and have managed to keep a similar top un-stained for years.
Clutch - Very girly. A great birthday present!
Shoes - Nude pumps are very in and also make your legs look longer.
Necklace - Sparkly pink pearls from Forever21.
Jacket - A little ivory lady coat.

A little extra perfume and lipstick to match the top...just right for turning 30 in DC.
