We have been pleasantly surprised this week with some warm days. Today was my daughter's birthday, :) so we celebrated! I wore my distressed boyfriend jeans, and for a touch of lux, a Burberry cape in plaid cashmere.
Yes, I am sitting in this photo. I have been shopping for my sweet daughter- for days now, and the stores have been seriously crowded. But am I complaining about shopping? Um..NO! Emphatic No! No, Indeed. Anything for my daughter! ( almost)
I dressed in a hurry this day, and wore an outfit very similar to a recent post. I wore the same jeans, (most comfortable), and same shoes, also most comfortable for walking and adding a bit of elegance to the torn denim. This time, I changed out my grey houndstooth cape for a Burberry cape in bright turquoise and black. I wore a long silver necklace with rhinestones from a local jeweler . My daughter chose the restaurant, and I was unsure of the dress code, but I knew it would be a good walk.

I did wear a hat, despite the sunny weather. The weather here has been so unpredictable!
My turquoise gloves are Kate Spade and are elbow length. They, too, afforded me any extra layer if the temps were to suddenly drop. Does anyone else get very cold hands when they are chilled?
A better look at my JANESJEANS,( via Encore, Madison Avuenue, NY NY ) and round bag from TJ Maxx:
My daughter dressed casually, too, and I was relieved to find her in denim too, torn at the knee from TopShop! We went to dinner , after a lovely walk: my son, my husband, my daughter and me. My daughter chose a pretty and quiet place.
The food was delicious and when the dessert came out, they started to sing. She chose berries for dessert with mango ice cream. It was delicious!
And then there were gifts......lots and lots of those! In fact after she finished opening the gifts, I handed her the cape. "This is really for you", I said."I know your office gets very cold in the winter." She was one surprised and happy young lady! And I was even happier. Every mother knows that a happy child makes a mom happy as can be!
I hope that you also had a wonderful weekend, and had gentle weather, and sunny skies! What makes YOUR birthday special?
