Me In My Birthday Suit!

Well, what did you expect? 
By "Birthday Suit" I meant the cute clothes that I got for my birthday from Joy! 
There is nothing better than a best friend.  Except a best friend that has exceptionally good taste.
 Oh, and not only did she give me this leopard print sweater (she knows me well), but check out this earring and necklace set from Napier that she got me to go with it.  *sigh*  I am so lucky!

*We interrupt this blog to bring you pictures of Harrison. Apparently this blog needs some "Man Style".  LOL  He is 15 and one of the greatest kids ever!*
Back to me in my birthday suit....

I love this Napier necklace!!!

 Sweater: Kohls-
Jewelry:  Napier-gifted/Joy
Red Belt: Banana Republic
Tights: Gap
Shoes: ATL
Skirt: Coldwater Creek
My fabulous photographer was the ever talented Kaja (9).  As a matter of fact, she is having so much fun she now tells me where to pose and how! LOL  It is so cute and i think she does a great job.
Today it is over 70 and sunny in Georgia!  I swear it feels like California out there. And for some reason I have this song stuck in my head (must be the sunshine) by Otis Redding.

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

  2. OOOH...I love a little Otis Redding!! You look great in this outfit...way to style it Joy! I hope the fabulous outfit, the sunshine, the beautiful children are all brining smiles to your face! I also hope you got your contest prize by now....have a week full of blessings!

    And Harrison is totally styling! I bet his was the best looking guy at the dance!!

  4. Lovely! You have great taste, Joy. And Lise, your son is adorable!

  7. Viktoria: It was a great birthday, and I do love the sweater.

    Pam: You are fabulous and I love the gift. I can't wait to show how I am styling it.

    Joy: You are awesome!

  8. Joyce: Thanks! I think my son is pretty great.
    Thanks for dropping by.

    Terri: I know. Otis Redding is awesome! And his song is just stuck in my head.

    serene: Thank you. We are kindred spirits. I love animal prints!

  9. Joyce: I have so many fashion thoughts right now that you are right, maybe we should get a discussion going here.

  10. I think the front flap on Nicole Kidman's dress is odd, but the dress is otherwise pretty...
    love Halle Berry's dress, but she always looks awesome...
    Gwyneth Paltrow looks pretty, and I like the dress, but I wonder if she wouldn't look freakishly anorexic in real life.
    Reese Witherspoon looks phenomenal (is she from GA?) I love her hair
    Natalie Portman's dress is lovely.

  11. You look wonderful! What a fabulous outfit. Of course I love that sweater but I adore the shoes too. Love this!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  12. Love all the brown together and I am not a big brown person, but this looks so sophisticated.
    I love that you daughter is so into the photography!
