Yesterday was my birthday and I had a wonderful day. My favorite birthday gift was my husband, who arrived the day before and is spending this entire week with me. If that weren’t enough, I got some really awesome gifts of the material and non-material kind. The material ones will slowly be revealed as I wear them, the immaterial ones came in the shape of really nice birthday wishes and messages, which really made my day. Thanks, E. and A., for thinking of me (you really nailed me with your outfits!) and to all of you who left such nice birthday comments!
One of my birthday gifts of the tangible variety was this beautiful silver leaf necklace from Beau & Stella on Etsy, which my husband gifted me.
And why yes, I am reading Winona‘s new book Closet Confidential…
No, Winona did not send it to me or pay me to say this, I actually hinted rather heavily to T. that I wanted her new book because I knew that if it was anything like her blog, I would absolutely love it. And Winona did not disappoint. I’ve already read about half of it and cannot get enough of her practical yet hilarious commentary on style.
The rest of my day (after I tore myself away from my new book) was spent sightseeing, meeting a few friends for beers at the Hofbräuhaus, and taking in the beginnings of the Christmas Markets here in Munich. I wore my flat boots, which are great for a day spent walking, and predictably enough, a shirt dress. The last time I wore this black dress, I paired it with gray for a monochromatic effect, but this time, I wanted to punch it up with an analogous pairing of a pink shirt and red belt. I think this color combo was definitely more festive and birthday appropriate. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some more birthday chocolate that needs polishing off while I read the last few pages of “Around the World in 80 Outfits”. S.
