On Friday, my dear friend Cat and I are going consignment/thrift store shopping all day, and then I am getting a tattoo! This is my birthday gift from L. It will be my very first one (I suspect, not my last). I'll post a picture of it and tell you all about it over the weekend.
Anyway, I am SO happy to be off! I thought I'd go with my lovely birthday skirt to celebrate:
Sorry it's hard to see, but I am wearing bright purple tights. My hair also remained flat for about...oh, 10 minutes after I stepped outside (it's been pouring buckets for a few weeks here on the West coast - hello, rainy season).
I wore the boyfriend jacket most of the day:
Streeeetch! I felt very hip and chic, which was a good way to feel. Ann at work said I looked like a flower. Aw.
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), cardigan (Jacob), cami (InWear), skirt (Le Chateau, birthday gift), tights (Hue), shoes (JLo), belt (Plum), bracelet (Le Chateau), necklace (ilovebracelets.com).
Have fun! i just got a tatoo at the at of 47!ReplyDelete
GORGEOUS color combo, and I love that floral skirt! you did a great job of making this outfit look seasonally appropriate while still looking vibrant and fun. Have a great long weekend -- I hope your favorite team wins (I'm a hockey fan, so I don't even know what football teams are playing), and ooh, good luck with the tattoo! Can't wait to see what you get. I've got an idea for *another* one rolling around in my head...ReplyDelete
I love that skirt! Have a great football day and shopping. Exciting news about getting the tattoo. I have 2 and LOVE them. I so would get more. I have a couple ideas in the works and someday I will be able to get them. I cannot wait to hear how it all goes for you.ReplyDelete
l love this combination, & your waist looks TINY, child! That is a beautiful skirt.ReplyDelete
I wanted to thank you for the shout out--I will formally do so I'm my next post, & I will be linking to you, as well. You're awesome!
I love your pose in the first photo -- you've got a pin-up girl figure!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous outfit! The colors are just marvelous - so Fall-y.ReplyDelete
When I lived in Vancouver, we always had chili for the football days. Plus chips and dip. Pig out day, yeah!ReplyDelete
Talking about "home attire", come and check out my post where I show the world "how I really look when I walk the dog". I think after seeing that photo anything goes!
Love the skirt and the way you played with colors. Cool outfit!ReplyDelete
You look great! Just to warn you though...tattoo's are addictive! Lol! I have three, one on my right foot, one on my lower back and my last one is a small heart on my thumb, just below the knuckle. When my Mum and Dad came to visit at Christmas, I asked her if she wanted to get a tattoo with me, her first at 63! We had the same tattoo in the same place, I think of her every time I look at it :-) She says that she wants another one when they come back :-) Told you .... addictive!ReplyDelete
I love this outfit! I got a tatoo when I was in my early 46, one was enough.ReplyDelete
I too will be watching as much football as I can although none of the game match up's are very exciting. There could be some spoilers in the crowd though.
Enough your time off, I know I'll enough mine!
Have a wonderful time.ReplyDelete
Yay for extra-long weekends! Have fun shopping and tattoo-getting and football-watching....sounds like you have an all-star weekend planned!ReplyDelete
You look fantabulous in this outfit btw. I can only hope to ever look so good.
I am sooooo in love with that skirt!!! It's just gorgeous, and you look so good in it :)ReplyDelete
Lesa, I'd love to see your tattoo - let me know if you have a picture of it posted.ReplyDelete
Audi, thank you so much! Eh, the football was unexciting, really. I am already thinking of my next tattoo - I would love to see some pictures of yours!
Thanks, Alison! I'm a total convert to tattoos now, I think!
Thank you, and welcome, Emma! I love your blog.
Thanks, and welcome, Aradia - I love this skirt too.
Thank you, kiltsnquilts! I know - I think it won't be long before I get another tattoo. That is so cool that you and your mum have matching tattoos. I don't think mine would go for it!
Thanks, Wendy - I love pin-up girls.
Thanks, Chris! I would love to see a pic of your tattoo. Yeah, the games were not so exciting, but it's more the all-day event that I enjoy.
Julia, you are so sweet - I laugh when you call me "child". I'm pretty sure I'm old enough to be your mom! Thank you!
Sherylyn, no kidding! Cat and I had a great time shopping! We both got some amazing stuff. Thank you so much.
I love that skirt. LOVE.ReplyDelete
