31(squared) - Weekend

Well, other than my mild tummy bug yesterday, I actually had a pretty good weekend.  I had a birthday, so I'm officially 'almost 30,' I got my hair cut, had a great time at the clothing swap I helped host, and got a lovely handmade necklace from a friend for a birthday present!  All in all, it was a great birthday weekend!

Some other outfits from the weekend:

Funny story (kind of), I walked into Jimmy John's to get lunch in the above outfit, and the girl behind the counter goes, "Wow, I like the clothes you're wearing!"  Being an awkward person that can't gracefully accept compliments, I reply with, "Yeah, thanks, it's a lot going on for one outfit."  She just nodded, and said, "Yes, yes it is."  So, I'm guessing the original compliment still stands?  Some human interactions confuse me.  Thank God for the internet.

  2. Hi Gracie-Lou! My name is Heather and I wanted to know if you would be willing to answer a quick question I have about your blog! My email is Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

  3. Happy Birthday! Glad you had fun at the clothing swap. I've started searching for fashion events around Nashville, particularly plus size swaps. No luck yet, but I've at least found a couple of websites that broadcast that sort of thing. I can be horribly awkward about compliments, too. I do dress to be seen rather than blend in, but I'm always surprised when people notice me. How much sense does that make? lol Anyways - I adore the last outfit! The stripes and floral and black and blue create such gorgeous contrast and the whole thing really pops!
