What I’m Wearing…

* White jeans by DL1961 {Last seen here with gray, pink, & blue}

* Camel coat by SMYTHE
* Sunglasses by 3.1 Phillip Lim
* Balenciaga classic town bag
* Fringe boots by Dolce Vita

* Title: Prince ‘When Doves Cry’ … my favorite Prince song {though there are so many great ones} and I’m so sad to hear of his random and untimely death yesterday. He was too young. He was too talented. All the sad faces.

Yesterday I had an appointment for a Botox/filler consultation. I know, I know… And then I freaked-TF-out and cancelled it the day before. I know so many people do it and think it’s no big deal, and maybe it’s not, but it really terrifies me – so much so, that I’ll have to just accept the aging process and face the lines getting really comfortable on my skin… that seem to get deeper with each passing day. I always hoped I’d age gracefully and maybe that is what this means… but I’m not exactly happy with my reflection because somehow I see the lines as “ugly” instead of just what they are; experiences, memories, emotions, life. And I find with my 40th birthday looming, I’m thinking about it far too often.

I wore this outfit last weekend, and loved it, though I don’t think it photographs as well as it made me feel wearing it… I think the height of the boots on my calves makes the jeans a little less flattering than they actually are OR I’m just standing in weird poses/angles, but whatever, I’m clearly being critical today, lol. Other than the white jeans, it had a bit of a Fall feeling due to the warm hues, but I didn’t care. I was hoping it would be the last chilly weekend where I’d have to wear such a big coat, because I’m dying for a little time in the sun right now… and so ready for dresses and bare legs and sneakers again.

    You are gorgeous! I hope I look as good as you when I am nearly 40. Hell I will take it for 30! I was super bummed to hear about Prince too 🙁 What an awful year of losses for the music world.

    I think you look amazing! I am trying to embrace my age. I’m only 32 (literally only turned 32 a couple of days ago) but I’m really noticing differences in my skin. It’s hard to accept! I’ve had to step up my skin care regime and try new make up, but I’m determined to age gracefully. You’re a great example! xx
    Also? When Doves Cry – my favourite song too – sad news.
