In Dog Years I'm Dead!

Today is the day ~ the day I have been dreading for awhile.
Today I turn 50 years old.
I certainly don't "feel" 50. 
It vacillates between feeling about 14 and 24 and I certainly have been told that I don't act 50.
Still pondering on that one...is it a compliment or not a compliment????
 No big plans for this birthday. 
 I did wake up to roses, b'day cake and a new laptop from husband this morning though.
And it seems the birthday fairies visited my yard last night!
I decided to play up the dots on dots with this outfit
 and
 loved the mustard skinnies as a compliment.
A pop of pink at the neck for good measure.
Today has started out as a great day and I am sure will get better as the day goes on.
My mantra of the day is going to be this:

I'm not 50- I'm 49.95 plus tax.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Brett and join the 50s crowd. A group I would prefer not to be in but at least I'm above ground for the moment. You look great. Hey, what do they say? 50 is the new 40, or is it 30???

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday - I wouldn't have picked 50 as your age. You certainly dress stylish and have great youthfulness showing through in your blog, via both the pictures and words. Forget the numbers and just continue being yourself. Have a super day...J

Rachel said...

50? Are you serious? I want to look like you when I am 50-- currently I am 42. Honestly you look about 25-30. I love your outfit. You are my new favorite blogger.

Aww happy birthday!! You don't look 50 so therefore you don't have to "act" 50 :p Loved your Instagram pics from your bday party :)

No fear. You have come to know yourself and life will get on becoming better and better. I know. I am 58, nearly 59.
Your blue and yellow polka dot look proves that you are a fun person with a hell of a personality. Who would not want to be around you? And that is what it is all about.
Your way of dressing tells us who and what you are.

Oh I am sorry. So unattentive of me:
CONGRATULATIONS.

Happy Birthday Brett! Hope you are having a great weekend.
I am 49 this year, the whole ageing thing doesn't really bother me - happens to everyone, if we are lucky.
And clearly age and style and fun are not mutually exclusive concepts! You look great! xxxx

Happy belated birthday Brett! Your feelings towards 50 was how I felt when I turned 30.... But honestly, now it doesn't feel that much different, you don't like 50, so cheers to the new decade:).

it's a compliment...accept it as such. you couldn't have picked a more radiant and vibrant bday ensemble. reflective of your personality!

WendyB said...

Happy birthday and it's definitely a compliment! Who wants to act old? :-)

You don't look 50 in this outfit, you look decades younger. 50 these days doesn't look like it did several decades ago. I hope you did something very special for you on your big day!
