Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : You Say It’s My Birthday!

Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : You Say It’s My Birthday!

Well, it’s not quite yet.

It’s Saturday, and I can’t wait. 42 big ones. Yup. 42, and proud of it. {see, christina … how I worked that in?!}

I’m old enough to remember rotary phones and have an appreciation for moms who didn’t hover, but young enough to get away with blasting U2 or Billy Idol in the car with the windows down without looking completely ridiculous.

pink sweater . paige jeans . pink sneaks . lime green scarf . lightscoop

Okay, maybe I’m kidding myself on that one.

Let’s just say I’m old/young enough not to care.

Here’s the look I’ll go for. I don’t have a pink sweater or converse in my closet presently, but I’ve got my eye on a pair at Target. Gotta wait, though. It’s my new philosophy.

The Cool Lime Refresher from Starbuck’s is my latest bad habit and ranunculas … aah, ranunculas. Second only to lily-of-the-valley as my favorite flower. I may just treat myself to one or both …

And that LightScoop? It’s on my wishlist, too, in case someone’s wondering {babe?}.

Da Na Na Na Na Na, you say it’s my birthday

Linking up today to What I’m Loving Wednesday @ Jamie’s This Kind of Love, Doing YOU Well Wednesday @ Michell’s Prowess and Pearls,  Whatever, Whenever Wednesday @ Rolled Up Pretty and to Casual Friday @ Two Thirty Five Designs.

  1. I love the pretty colors in that outfit! And we’re both right around the same age, except I’m five years older and you want to know something else? You couldn’t pay me to be back in my 20’s. Well, I suppose you could, as long as I get to take the wisdom I have now with me, lol! So, you like coffee, eh (yes, I’m Canadian. Did the “eh” give it away, lol?!)! I have actually only had 1/2 a cup of coffee in my life, and that was in my mid 20’s. Never did a thing for me, but hey, if it works for you! Actually, I’ve never had a cup of tea, either! Can’t stand the smell of it. I’ve never had a drop of alcohol either. Gosh, I make a cheap date! By the way, I love the little unbrfella in your header. Your header is so pretty and looks like Spring! Spring…please come!

  3. Happy Early Birthday dear friend! I wish we could venture to a Starbucks together and you can bet that I’d buy you one of those refreshers. I love that ombre sweater you picked, I bet it’d look great on you!

  5. Love the outfit! It reminds me of spring. And summer. Which I quite desperately miss right now.

    And happy early birthday! I say you treat yourself to the flowers, the beverage, and the Target goods. After all, it’s your birthday.

  13. {Melinda} Happy Birthday, Michelle!! I believe that outfit is supremely birthday worthy. Did you love being in high school in the 80s? I’ve introduced my daughter to 80s music and movies. She appreciates mom’s era. 🙂
