How excited are you for 2013? I have finally accepted that I’ll be turning the big Four~Oh in March. I had planned to do sort of a big lead up to my fortieth birthday until I realized a few days ago that I no longer have two years to plan this because March is just a couple of months away. Seriously, I thought I was 38. Isn’t it sad when you can fool yourself so completely? So I don’t know what I’m gonna do to mark this milestone birthday but I know it has to be big. If you have suggestions please leave them in the comments. I’m game for just about anything.
I’ve also decided to document my outfits on Flickr in a set called 52 Weeks of Style, you can check it out here.
What I Wore Sunday
My inspiration for this outfit was found on Pinterest, where else? You can see the outfit by clicking here. I was attracted to the bold and unexpected use of color and thought I could replicate it with items already in my closet.
I wore this to church on Sunday and felt pretty comfortable. It was kind of drizzly outside, so I was certainly one of the more colorful parts of the day. smile I think that’s a good thing though. Who wants to blend in to a sea of blacks and browns? Not me.
Notice that I’m wearing my cardi belted? Yeah, I kinda like that look. And because I don’t really have a defined waist, I think the belt helps me out a lot. It breaks up the line of color, so I think that’s a look I’m gonna keep up.
The one change I would make to this outfit is that I’d leave the bottom two buttons on the white button down undone. I tend to do that with my cardis, so I’m not sure why I didn’t do it with the blouse. Other than that, I really felt comfortable and enjoyed my Pinterpretation.
