Time for another week of What I Wore Wednesday! I am linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy. This past week I got to dress up for lots of birthday fun, dinners, lunches and enjoying my family. It seems like as I get older, my birthday gets to be more and more about hanging out with people I love. If that continues to be true, I say bring on the birthdays!
blouse and skirt: The Loft
Ariat Boots: Country Outfitter

Earrings: bday present!
Funny story: My grandmother bought me the top (above) and the striped skirt (day 2) from Anthropologie last year for my birthday. She usually tries to take me to one of her favorite places to shop (like Talbot’s) but she knows I like Anthropologie so on my birthday last year she was all, Honey, I want to take you to that store you like. You know, the one about the animals?
Eventually we figured out that she was talking about Anthropologie, so we made our way over there and she was not sure about anything I tried on except for this turquoise and black striped top. She loved it. As we were checking out, she told me to run back and get her one too.
My grandmother always does this. She loves to buy herself the same thing you already picked out. Or to buy you something that she already bought and likes. This funny little habit of hers is precious to me. I said, Grandmother, if you want that shirt, just get it. I don’t have to have it too.
But she insisted. She promised she would never wear it to church or anywhere that I might be to avoid our appearing somewhere in the same top. Not that I would even mind! She has been true to her word. She only wears it to bridge parties and around her retirement home. Love it!
