Downsides to being born on Labor Day Weekend: No one was around to go to your birthday party as a kid. Not even if it was princess themed. It is you and dad (such a good sport) in Princess birthday hats. Also- it is so early in the school year, you are never clear on the cupcake rule. Can you bring them?

Upsides though are... pretty much everything else. Yor birthday is a three day weekend. Or, rather- to cut the second person narrative here- my birthday is. And my sweet Boy insisted we celebrate it all weekend. Mostly, things were fairly low key- they were things we might do any weekend, but all in a single weekend together. So Saturday we hit the Big City where the overcast weather was made to seem atmospheric because we were sipping on hot chocolates in a cafe. This is what I wore. A bit Diane Keaton feeling, I think. Perfect for what filled much of the rest of the day- strolling through the Farmers' Market (with the dogs! Max was a little overstimulated with all the different food smells but they did well), and book-browsing.

The next day was even better thanks to all my incredibly thoughtful friends becoming partners-in-crime with The Boy to bring about surprises- surprise packages appearing out of nowhere and surprise visitors! All your thoughtfulness (yes, you. This is no second-person narrative this time) made my 29th birthday one of the very best I've had. Thank you for that <3


  1. Glad you had a nice birthday. Love these jeans on you & I totally understand your kid birthday woes. As an end of August birthday, we weren't in school yet (they are now, but we weren't then) so it was always just family.

  2. I certainly feel your pain, my birthday is on Christmas Day! I think this is such a lovely outfit. The slightly slouchy fit of your top goes perfectly with your skinnies. Sounds like you had a great birthday!

  6. Sounds perfect! I love, love, love this look- anything that channels Diane Keaton is thumbs up. I feel your childhood bday pain- having a summer birthday I was always bummed I never got the classroom celebration but now I'm happy that it falls during this time of year!

  7. What year did you have a princess party? I don't remember any girls having princess parties. You were a trend-setter before your time!

    I like this outfit- something about the hat and scarf says "cowboy" to me, but then it's super hip instead? Probably not a helpful description, but I like it!

    Happy Birthday!!!!

    1. Quite young- before we started school, I think, or maybe when I was in developmental Kindergarten...

  8. Huzzah! Congratulations! :D
