How are you all? Well, I am still sick. Fearing for my life that this will turn into the upper respiratory infection from hell like last year, and result it injured ribs. But actually. After nearly 11 hours of sleep, I think things just might be on the mend.
I have another outfit post, which has been somewhat recycled from All The Pretty Dresses. As most of you know, I celebrated my birthday last week. And regardless of whether or not it was Pantsless Lent, of course I would bust out a dress for the big day. Here she is!
I had the occasion to wear many dresses, for my birthday. The day of, week of and even month of, now that you mention it. But this was the garment I dubbed my official birthday dress from the first time I laid eyes on it in a shop window.
I’ve actually worn it twice in the past two weeks, because I love it ever so much. I plan to style it many ways, but I think this one is the most quintessential Jenny. Black and white. Classic. Classy. With just a pop of color. The element of surprise. In short, a birthday get-up in the tradition of the the birthday girl. I mean, if you can’t design an outfit after yourself for your own GD birthday, then when the hell can you? Am I right or am I right? Of course I’m right. It’s my birthday. Or was. Anyway.
The weather was uber windy all week last week and into the next. The wind followed me pretty much everywhere. Ordinarily, I find wind to be the most annoying kind of weather, but this year I find it symbolic. With wind brings gusts of strength and it billows change to the horizon. Born on the very last day of March, to my mother who celebrates hers on the first, we’ve always been fond of the adage about the lion and the lamb. Early March this year was calm, making my mother the lamb, I guess. And while, I’d usually be put out by this, I think it’s fitting this go round. I’ve been a lamb enough times in my life, I’m ready to tackle 28 like a lioness.
