99,999

Washer fluid low, gas light went on while driving, oil change light popped on and I hit this mileage. I texted my husband and showed him this...his response..."cool"! I guess I am not getting a newer car anytime soon.
Helloooooo!!  I have missed you but I needed the break to get well again.  I am on the mend.  Thank you for checking on me as it has meant the world.  I won't bore you( today) with the deets of my recovery since I have had 3 great days in a row which inspired me to post this thrifted dress, bow belt and hot pink tights.  It has been raining for days but the leaves and grass are filling in my yard so beautifully.  I have no idea what is in style anymore so I just threw on what fit and went to Anthropologie.  My car (sassy Saturn) hit 100,000 miles as I was driving from Anthro back home?    Of course, I had my camera with me, I had to take pics of the clothing I was coveting in the dressing room. 


I got my hair cut and I finally dyed it yesterday.  The stylist told me that I had not been there in 7 months...whoops.  My hair was just about waist length in the back.  I needed my layers back so she cut off about 3 to 5 inches from the sides and back.  I needed it.  Ya think?


Tomorrow I will turn 45.  Not bad for an old broad huh?  Have a great day darlings.  Thank you for dropping in, so nice to hear from you.  dawnxo

Happy Birthday Dawn!
You look magnificent - chic and sassy and your hair (as always) is ultra-enviable.
45? Pah! That's the new 30! xxx

Happy Birthday, Dawn! If I look half as good at 45, I will start a new blog called "Heck Yeah, I Look Good". Wish me luck on that.

Also, love the hot pink tights. I wore some of my own Monday and might borrow this look for the next time I break them out. Which hopefully won't be until fall, but it's Oregon, it'll rain.

Glad you're feeling better. I've been thinking about you!

So glad you're back Dawn, I missed you & figured you were probably recuperating. You look really wonderful and I wish you a Happy Birthday. Mine was April 29 & if 45 is the new 30, then I must only be 46. Am I the only 61 year old that looks at fashion blogs?

Good to hear from you! You look fantastic, as always. You rock those pink tights better than any 45 year old that I know could! Seriously, 45?! I never would have guessed. You are gorgeous.

So glad your feeling better. You hair is looking fabulous and wow your figure in this dress looks divine. And happy birthday. You look absolutely gorgeous, I would have never guessed your age and put you at early 30's (not that it matters age ain't nothing but a number!) Wishing you a lovely day xx
