This is 50!
I’m not gonna lie. 50 has some challenges: body parts I never even noticed before are starting to look old (hello elbows?!), I put on and take off a sweater about 20 times a day, and the bathroom scale is obviously broken.
But being 50 also means being confident in who I am.
It means that I have a whole new decade of fun and fashion ahead of me.
And I was lucky enough to have several amazing celebrations:
Super sweet girlfriends took me to lunch and shopping.
With Lynn at Santana Row
With Rachel at Stanford Shopping Center
And I have several other celebrations coming up soon too.
Even my fabulous amazing husband bit the bullet and spent a day shopping with me in San Francisco.
And breakfast at Tiffany’s!
I’m a super lucky lady with so much to be grateful for. Bring it on, fifties! I’m excited and ready for you!
Last week’s favs … not only are these outfits amazing, but the photos are just so gorgeous too!
Taylor of Pink Heels, Pink Truck channeling some serious Alice! LOVE!
Monika of Style is My Pudding … cool girl chic at it’s best. Let’s just hope the railroad is not in use. Be careful, Monika!
Dana of Dana Loves Fashion and Music rocks a look chic enough for a triple view!

The sweater thing is funny—I can totally relate. But, hey…I hardly have to shave my legs anymore—so there is some advantage (besides what you stated!!)
It's like my personal thermostat is totally haywire! 😉 Thanks so much for coming by to wish me a happy bday! 🙂

Happy Birthday! We are almost twins : ) I had my birthday June 5th and also turned 50.
I try not to look at what is happening behind me on my body. Nothing good going on back there! LOL
Yay for us, Suzanne! Let's show the world how much 50 can rock!! 😀
Happy birthday! Looks like you've been having lots of fun…your husband is a good sport for going shopping with you, mine hates it! Growing older is a privilege denied to many so we should just embrace it. Have a great weekend 🙂
Yes, growing older is much better than the alternative! Thanks, Emma! 🙂
Happy birthday Dawn, you look fab no matter what age 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your celebrations, great way to start them with shopping though lol :)) Also if there is anything you like from my shop let me know and I will give you a special "birthday disocunt".
Ooo what a nice offer. Thanks, Nora! OXOX

Lunch (or breakfast!) and shopping sounds like the PERFECT way to celebrate your big day…and may I just say that you look absolutely fabulous while doing so?! And thank you sooo much for including me in your lineup of "faves" from last week; that railroad shoot wasn't as dangerous as it looked…I promise!! ;D
Haha …. well, you obviously survived, so I won't worry too much! ;P Thanks Dear!
Happy Birthday! And welcome to the fifties. Whatever you do, keep your fun style/no rules attitude. Looks like you had a fabulous birthday!
Aww thanks a million Amy! 🙂
Happy 50th birthday, pretty lady! I enjoyed seeing your many looks and places you went to celebrate. I felt confident about turning 40 and I feel certain I will be the same when I turn 50.
I'm sure you'll rock 50 as well, Dear! 🙂
Woohoo, Happy Birthday to you! You look great, you made me laugh with your introduction.:-) Love the hat and you look great. My bday is coming up and I will be 48, so not far behind. So much fun so far huh/ I know my hubby hates to shop, nice of yours to go with you because of your bday. ENjoy my friend and have a great weekend

Thank you for linking up!
Wishing you a very happy 50th birthday. Aging doesn't have to be bad, it means that you're alive & still creating wonderful memories. Although it is fun to look back over the years & see how you've grown or changed. :]
