As you all know, since I'm a lush and tell everyone it's my birthday and expect just as many gifts in return for my news, I turned 28 on Saturday. I joked about getting old in my last post, but I'm actually 100% ok with turning one year older.  While it did feel weird to type out the number twenty-eight, mainly because I still feel every bit of 12 years old, I'm actually okay with growing up now. The wrinkles are starting to make their slow entrance on my face, the grey hairs come in twos every few months, and somehow a ten o'clock bed time seems late these days. But I've got 28 years and two days of experience in my pocket and that's something to be wrinkled, grey and tired about, right? 
Plus, who am I kidding? I still get carded every time I order a drink. Which is not often, grandma, I promise.

  9. If you turned 28, don't you have 28 years and 2 days of experience, not 27 years?

  11. you wear it well.  i convinced myself i was fine with getting older too, then 30 sneaked up on me and i had a mild concussion.  now i just tell people (and myself) i'm "almost 30".  They don't know i'm counting backwards...

  12. Happy Birthday! I think too, it's totally to turn older, and we (I'm 27) don't have to worry about wrinkles and all that stuff yet, so I don't see any problem - at least so far ;-) I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend!

    Happy birthday!
    I love the look, I just think those tights don't go. Just my opinion of course but with the color of the booties I would have picked another, more complimentary color for the tights. Or used black accessories to compliment the color of the tights. Whichever. I love the dress but most of all the hat!

    ReplyDelete

  111. Hi Kendi,
    I know you are super busy but I hope you can help me out! I think I have that same dress - is it BCBG? If so, I wore it, dressed up, to a wedding but have trouble adding it to any sort of other outfit. Other than how you have styled it above, you do have any possible suggestions for me? 

    Thank you!
