Happy Birthday to me! Today is my birthday…I am officially “into” my fifties. And, I have never felt better (well, except for my back which I’m still working on) about myself and where I am in life. It is perfect? No. Are there things I want to do this year? Yes. Am I grateful for what I have and what I have accomplished so far? Yes. Absolutely yes.

So today I took a vacation day, dressed myself up in one of my favorite outfits and planned out a day! I’m heading out to lunch, maybe a little shopping and then Rob and I are going out with great friends. It is going to be a fantastic day!

This outfit is one of my “go-tos.” The dress fits perfectly and has been one I can wear all year round. The boots and turtleneck have gotten me through the winter. A leather or jean jacket make sure it doesn’t get too dressy. In the summer I will ditch the turtleneck and wear it with cute flat boots. Of course I added in another favorite in my wardrobe…my Mio Studio earrings. You have seen these many times! A bright blue crossbody adds the punch of color today and is on-trend mixing black and blue. Some big chunky rings finish it off and I’m ready to go.
