The Lessons of a 37 Year Old


I'm thinking the peplum on this skirt gave me a little extra junk in the trunk.
The same junk that I worked so hard to get off this summer.
But it was my birthday.
It was raining.
And I didn't care.
Even the hair is starting to have a mind of its own, but I kinda am embracing that.
That''s what happens at age 37, you just go with it...whatever it is.



I hear age 38 is the year of "not sweating the small stuff."
I'm already ahead of the game:)




 Thanks for all of the birthday wishes!
Thank you for each and every phone call, email, comment and text. 
I smiled every time:)

I think you're dope! I was taught to embrace each year! My gram always says "you'll get to my age if you're lucky!" Words to live by!

The whole ensemble is fly! Wanna be like you when I grow up lol

1. You are a Master at print mixing...
2. Gray is the grown-woman-swag version of a white tee and the screen print makes it even better! Do they have an H&M in Houston?

3. I have the pewter version of your shoes, and the fact someone as stylish as you owns a pair is validating...
4. Curves are sexy so if a skirt defines them, especially the hips, that's a blessing!

Happy Birthday

DUDE! you look so fab! love this outfit! and you know i love that you are wearing a jimi tee! :)

happy belated birthday. you make 38 look SMASHING.

and like you say, it is a good idea to let the small stuff go. a big fat WHATEVER is in order sometimes. i like that attitude. :)

GFS said...

Hangs head in shame that I missed your birthday :( I'm so very sorry but I'm so glad that you enjoyed yourself and you are ready for 38. I was thinking I need a peplum skirt cause junk in the trunk is always a good thang :)

GFS said...

You have the dopest style. LOVES you!
