Happy Birthday to Me

I have some time in the middle of my day when I commute up to UNH.  Last week I decided to hit up Freeport, another 70 miles away.  I have been wanting to return some backpacks to L.L. Bean that had been rumbling around in the back of the car for ages.  I love their return policy, these were bags that my husband bought ages ago but didn't like the way they fit so they just sat in the closet.  Two years later I finally got around to returning them and they gave me current value.

And with that, I bought this dress and ended up only paying 40$ for it.  I think I'll wear it for my Birthday.  It's the most gorgeous heavy silk and I adore it.  Should go well with a tweed jacket I scored thrifting for this fall and the old lady shoes I bought while shopping with my sister yesterday.  We both bough a pair of brown oxfords, but mine are all chunky heel and hers all sexy heel.  That's fine, they're still cute and I know they'll make me happy to wear them on Wednesday with this lovely dress.  I have no problems working with what I have.  Style & confidence comes from the way you wear it.

TWIS,
Can't wait to see the picture of you in your birthday outfit! Did you know there's a LL Bean in Burlington, MA now?

Happy birthday!!! 34 will be your best year yet!

My best always,
Sean

p.s.--I'm not nearly as enthusiastic about turning 39 this coming Saturday, as you are about 34--But, I'm thrilled to be 39 and in the condition and place I am, you know?

Oh, silk is fabulous! Love the way it feels. The dress is so classic and elegant! And that color...simply beautiful.

You would look right at home in Paris, strolling along a tree lined avenue or dining at a chic bistro!

@Sean, I'll probably feel the same way in a few years...

And yes, big fan of the local LL Bean but none of them carry the Signature Line which is where this came from. Was super excited to see it in the store up there so I could try things on and get an idea of their fit. It's only in a few stores.
