Hello loves! I have rounded the corner to five&seven, which sounds much better that 57 years old. The day did not start well. Rather than dedicate a whole paragraph to this no good, terrible start, let me just say this: Projectile vomiting.(eeww, overshare, much?) My speedy-self recovered quickly ;the next night I wore delicate lace and a boyish jacket to dinner.
My wonderful friend took me to dinner at serendipity 3. It is fun place, known for its amazing frozen chocolate drinks. The atmosphere was lively and the chocolate cake was amazing. I wore a powder blue lace dress, and added a boxy jacket to give the outfit some balance. My skinny scarf was a simple and obvious add-on, I love the print, and it is a recent gift from a friend.
Sorry for the photo quality here; the light was dimming outside , but I did want to get two quick snaps. Thanks to the very nice stranger who look my photos!
I took some photos inside later to show the details of the lace dress, silk scarf, and the Hermes Cadena scarf ring in lizard. The scarf and the scarf ring were both gifts from dear friends. How nice is that! The velvet bag is Bottega Veneta.
The "holiday" started when baby sis turned 56, making twin and me, as old as she, for two whole days in the calendar year. My sister's sweet beau planned an awesome sunset cruise. I love my sister's friends, and I got to see my twin and my sis- and enjoy our birthdays together , as is our tradition.
It was chilly on the water, so this snap, taken by a friend, shows me in 3 layers plus a scarf- perhaps not the nautical outfit you would expect ( Yes, I wore stripes underneath this black jacket!) This shot is not super, but the background is lovely! You will either love or hate my sunnies. They did the trick though! My twin was in this shot, unfortunately she turned when another round if champagne was served! ;)
My baby ( hah!) sis and her daughter look so much alike. Do you agree?
The boat took off from the wharf in Sag harbor. Here is a snap at the approach. I adore this area!
This was a sunset cruise, and Mother Nature did not disappoint! #birthdaymonth is working for me!
So what is life like in this new year? Piece of cake!
So take a tip from me: why celebrate only one day. Here's to #birthdaymonth! Peace, hugs, and smooth sailing.
Outfit details: lace dress- Retreat boutique,label cut out. looks a lot like Valentino 2012 ( it is not- their dress is fully lined) sim here. Boxy jacket - Julie Brown via Manhattan Boutique, sold out. Sim here by Theory. Print skinny scarf, vintage: sim here and here by Helen Ruth. Hermes cadena scarf ring, lizard, on eBay in green! Of course you can always just buy it at Hermes. This is the only on on their site, but I would guess the New York flagship store would have mine. Love this one, too, though.
Most of you are wearing lace this season. What is your fav outfit, in which lace is featured? How did you style it?
