my birthday my style playing dress up Spring 2011 outfits

This is Always Awkward but …it’s my Birthday today

What I’m Wearing
* Watermelon pink 50’s shirtdress {manufactured in the 80’s} by The American Shirt Dress Company. I’ve had this dress for longer than I’ve known my husband and have never worn it. I almost sold it on Ebay a dozen times but something kept urging me to keep it. The color is very watermelon in person but photographs very pink pink so I had to add some filters to adjust for it. Needless to say I’m glad I never sold it …it makes a very fun birthday dress 😉
* Vintage silk green scarf as belt
* All vintage jewelry …some my grandma’s and some thrifted + D&G gold watch.
* Boutique 9 nude anklestrap heels. I was actually wishing I had a vibrant pair of shoes to match the intensity of the pink and green but alas, I do not. Nude to the rescue
* Tom Ford anouk cat eye sunglasses forever and ever 😉

Today I am no longer in my early 30’s. I have crossed the threshold …I have plateaued at 35 and after this year I will be considered in my “late 30’s”. I’m actually quite happy in my 30’s. In fact, when I was a child I couldn’t wait to be a “grown up woman in her 30’s”. It’s funny to look back at my childhood and remember so looking forward to this time in my life. I must have either had fantastic intuition or willed it true because I was right. After a very trying “20’s” I have settled quite nicely into my 30’s. I hope you have or will get to experience the 30-something goodness as well …and I hope I can say the same at 45, 55, 65, 75 and 85 …I’ll stop there, you get the idea.

{and then I turned the music up and THE FINAL COUNTDOWN, by Europ was playing …oh irony}

bye, bye 34!

watermelon pink dress in my office

My office is oooooozing with a ridiculous amount of cluttered femininity and I love it to pieces! I smile every time I walk in it and find myself looking around while sitting at my desk. It’s almost done and I can’t wait to show you. I know, still teasing, but every other room in the house I’ve revealed before it was complete then sort of regretted it so I have to just wait until it’s perfect. Above is a glimpse of one of the walls I was having the most trouble figuring out what to do with but my time off has proven itself through inspired creativity and motivation to finish. I’m in love.
