Clothed with Grace: It's My Birthday!

It's My Birthday!

Today I am another day older, and I'm ok with that.  It's funny how at 20 being in your 30's seemed so old, not that I'm 34, it feels young.  Weird huh?  I also don't feel like age matters to me the way it used to.  Case in point, I thought I was 30 for two years straight, not in the Samantha Jones kind of way, the way where it just didn't matter enough to me to remember.  Along with age is coming a few things I'm not crazy about, I have a couple of gray hairs that I keep plucking every few months and I have major laugh lines around my eyes, but hey, at least I laugh, right?  What about you, does age really matter?

Now to my outfit:  I got this top at LOFT on final sale for like $10, I probably would have bought a lot more if Grant wasn't with me.  He does not thinking shopping is fun, however running around the store like a rabid Gremlin is something he enjoys.  I always know who the moms are when I'm shopping now, they look at me with a look of "I get it."  Then, their are the couples without kids who want them, they comment on how cute he is; it's not so cute when it's your own kid.  Just saying.  Day 10 of the Blog Everyday in May Challenge is my most embarrassing moment, I'm honestly not bold enough to share this in Blogland, props to those who are, but a wild, screaming with glee toddler is pretty embarrassing.







Top: LOFT $10
Jeans: Old Navy $5 (thrifted)
Necklace: Stella and Dot Avalon
Bracelets: Stella and Dot Kalahari/Renegade/Chimera
Shoes: DSW $25
Bag: Coach

  10. Happy Birthday Pretty Lady. Once I turned 30 I didn't think I was too old either, I still don't (well sometimes I do). And you are only slightly older than me. You are a Taurus like me - I didn't know that. No wonder I love your style & personality.

    This is a Lovely Outfit too, great top. I wouldn't have been able to resist at Loft either. I love their clothes & their sales. Cannot wait till June or July for me to be able to shop & enjoy USA.

    Hope your Birthday Weekend is filled with lots of Love, Hugs, Gifts, Good Food & Great Company - which I am sure it will be. And you should do some shopping this month & treat yourself to some nice things. I got a couple of cute things this month, too.

  16. Happy Birthday! I can totally relate to the moms in the stores too. When I actually can go shopping by myself it's nice relaxing with no kiddos. Your top is great, but I really LOVE your heels. Enjoy your birthday! Heather

  17. Happy birthday! I totally agree with you about age. I don't think it matters... and I often forget how old I am.
    Love the peplum top! I love the peplum trend but still haven't tried it yet - no idea how I haven't!

  18. Happy birthday!! I have never been too worried about age, but it does feel weird to be "almost 30." I still feel like a kid most of the time, but once I'm 30, I'll be a real adult, I guess! It does help to know people in their 30s and 40s who aren't "old" at all.

    Love the shirt! I was going to buy it, but then it didn't fit me right.

  22. Happy birthday Ginny! I hope you have a fun day =) My birthday is coming up soon too, the big 3-0 and I'm feeling fine about it (well as far as age goes, I do think about time and things I haven't done yet). I really adore this striped top, and the gold shoes are so fun!

  28. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY GINNY!!! Hope you had a fantastic day. I LOVE this look on you!! Everything!
    LOL....I really did think I was 31 for two years in a row. How does that happen? I wasn't in denial I just really had to second guess myself when someone asked me my age but now as I'm approaching 40 I can remember. :-)
