Breaking the rules for my birthday

tank: Old Navy
skirt: H&M
sandals: B. Makowsky

Are 40-year-olds expected to dress a certain way? If so, I am sure I am breaking all sorts of fashion rules. My hemlines are above my knees, I love ruffles and color, and I have been known to wear 4-inch heels every now and again. I figure, if I still got it, I might as well flaunt it, right?

My sister has the most amazing foyer and stairwell at her house. Makes for some fun remix photos.

Yesterday I spent my birthday doing all the things that I love: running and practicing yoga with the hubs, eating some good Indian food for lunch, taking lots of photos and spending time with my sis and nephews.

all items remix'd
dress: Gap
booties: Tory Burch
earrings: gift'd
necklace: F21

This is what I wore to dinner with the hubs last night. This dress is an oldie but goodie. Again, drop-waist, ruffles, high heels...breaking all sorts of fashion "rules" here I am sure - but rules are meant to be broken, right?

My birthday celebration is apparently going on all weekend long. More to come tomorrow!

Happy Birthday! Break as many rules as you want. You look fab! Love the dress you are wearing to dinner. Grey really is a nice color on you, and the ruffles are so fun.

Happy birthday! Break all the rules, you're fabulous! You certainly don't need to be confined to such narrow ideas. Love the black booties you're wearing.

Hope you had a happy birthday! And man, you still got it, so you can still flaunt it! I hope I have as nice and toned as a figure as you do when I hit your age.

You look fantastic!
