41 and Feeling Fine!

Happy Sunday all!

Today is my 41st birthday and I’m feeling fine! I’m extremely grateful to see another year of life.  This year I plan to visit Paris, continue a healthy lifestyle and apply for a doctorate in social work  (finally!).  So far my forties are becoming the best years of my adult life!

Here’s a pic of what I wore to dinner with my friend Andrea. It was a casual dinner but I didn’t feel like wearing jeans today so I opted for my black & white striped pencil skirt  and red peplum top.

Have a wonderful night!

Skirt: Old Navy

Shirt: ASOS Curve

Bracelet: NY & Co
