Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!
Yes, today’s my birthday. I’m turning 27 again, and I’ve never felt better! Okay, fine, I’m turning 43, and you know what? I wouldn’t trade the aches and pains, the smile lines, or the wisdom and confidence I’ve gained from 43 years of living for all of the water in the fountain of youth. There’s something to be said for getting older and more comfortable in your own skin.
Last night we had a small family celebration with all of my favorite people, and tonight my husband and I have dinner plans before we go to the media preview of Nightscape, a new light and sound show at Longwood Gardens, so I’m really looking forward to that. Meanwhile, here’s what I wore this week. As I always say, I’m just a typical suburban mom trying to stay fabulous after 40 and sharing what I learn along the way. I hope you find some style inspiration here.
I ordered this green slouchy linen tee from LOFT, and I love it. The relaxed fit is easy to wear, and the rounded V-neckline is flattering without being too low-cut. I expect it to shrink up some when I wash it, and I think I’ll like it even better then. I also like the seaming detail in the back. I paired it with my black City Shorts from Ann Taylor, and I wore my black FitFlops. The chevron necklace is from Silpada.
Sorry these next pictures are so blurry. My husband was playing around with camera settings, and it obviously didn’t go very well. I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. My tried and true orange tank strikes again! And I still love this maxi skirt from LNBF. I accessorized with gold and wore my white Tory sandals. I love the contrast of the green satchel against the orange. I really wish the pictures had turned out better.
This is just another casual summer work-from-home outfit. This is the embellished flag t-shirt that I shared in one of my July 4th outfit ideas last week. This time I paired it with my cuffed jean shorts.
Outfit details: Rock & Republic Embellished Flag Tee // cuffed jean shorts (similar) // Orthaheel Adelie // silver bracelets and necklace via Stella & Dot // red bag (old; shop red handbags at Nordstrom)
And just one more this week. Another casual shorts outfit. I ordered these pink shorts from Old Navy, and I’m really happy with them. They’re only $8 right now!!! I paired them with a simple white tee and this beaded necklace from Target.
I’m not sure how I ended up with only four outfits this week, but I guess I’ve been kind of a bum lately. Don’t forget about the $100 Nordstrom Giveaway I have going on right now!! Along with that, Cyndi and I teamed up to bring you a few casual 4th of July inspired outfits for your Independence Day festivities.
