on my birthday

on my  birthday on my  birthday on my  birthday

Today is my birthday! Ken and the boys took me out to breakfast this morning, and this is what I wore. We went on vacation last week and hopefully I'll post some of my outfits from Palm Springs pretty soon (Ken was nice enough to snap from outfit photos on the iPhone).

So, I'm 48 today. I'm trying not to focus on my actual age so much as just make plans for health and vitality in the year to come. I'm definitely planning a "health week" this week to recover from vacation eating and set the right tone for summer.

Outfit details:
dress:  Gap
belt:  Garnet Hill
sweater: Gap
flats:  Clark's
bag:  J. Crew
necklace:  Laura Lombardi (via Pretty Mommy)
bracelet:  Mercedes Salazar (via Shop Bop)

    1. Hi Kristen. Thanks for the kind words.

      About the bracelet. I love it! It is a firm fit. I'd say it's best on a small to medium wrist (I consider my wrist to be medium). I actually like that it doesn't slip around and doesn't need constant adjusting and tightening. Also, I'm determined to keep it looking nice. The friendship bracelet detail is actual friendship bracelet and I don't want it to get dirty or worn. I'd wear this to work or going out but not around the house. I'd say go for it if you are so inclined. I love that it adds color to an otherwise plain outfit.

  4. Happy Birthday Mary Beth!!! You look so cute in this outfit. You have a lovely figure (it's hard to say this in a non-creepy way).

    Great outfit and, I must admit, great legs!

    1. Thanks, Gabi B! I'm actually self conscious about my legs and I mean to tone them this summer--but not self-conscious enough to stop wearing skirts and shorts, alas!
