Birthday Dress (It's not my birthday.)


On Saturday, my husband and I went thrift shopping together, and I walked out with a heap of clothing including a giraffe-print dress, which was my husband's favorite. Then we drove to Virginia to hang out with his grandma.


On Sunday, it was Robert's birthday, and I wore the giraffe-print dress for him. It is his official birthday dress! I then posed in front of a giant Golden Skillet on our way back to North Carolina (as one does when one is presented with the opportunity).


It was a wee bit chilly, but I had my boots and giant sweater (a Christmas gift) to keep me warm. And check out my purse!


 I call it my Mary Poppins purse because it is carpet-bag-esque. I bought it years ago when Isaac Mizrahi made stuff for Target. Good times. Good purse.


Happy birthday, Robert!

A lovely birthday dress.
Happy birthday to Robert!

My favourite bag is very Mary Poppins too, I think I've probably included it in a past post.

You look cosy in your cardi :)

Happy Birthday Robert. What a cute dress/wife you have. This is such a great idea. My husband's birthday is coming up and I'm going to buy him a dress for me for his birthday.
