My birthday and also do I look Crayola in this?

I had a birthday!  And at the last minute we were invited to a friend's parents' cabin on Gabriola Island, so we scuttled over there Saturday morning after Joel got off call, and it was sunny so we 'hiked' a little bit


and then lay on the beach like walruses and watched the dogs chase the childrens.  That night we had a campfire and birthday cake.


And the next day it was dismal


so we sat around a weird island cafe full of weird island art talking about how weird all the islands are and then Joel and I hopped the tiny ferry and drove back to Victoria to watch the Canucks game and I got another cake.


So many cakes!

Now that that's out of the way, can we talk about my outfit?  I wouldn't keep asking you guys for fashion advice if you weren't all so damned stylish.  You have only yourselves to blame.  (The other day I dressed myself and it was ALL WRONG but I couldn't put my BRAIN-FINGER on what was wrong and I thought, I will make the internets tell me, but I was late so I wore something else completely and I will have to recreate the Wrong Outfit for you some other time so you can weigh in.)

This is mostly a question of color.


I love the bright blue with all the muted, mustardy colors on the skirt.  However, I also know that I am prone to wanting to wear ALL THE COLORS.  So.  Bright and fine, or dressed by a four-year-old?

Honestly, the only rule should be: If you like it, wear it!

Actually, there should be a second rule about always wearing underpants, and maybe one about just saying no to fanny packs, but definitely the wear-what-you-love one. And the underwear one.

I like this combination very much and think you done good.

Better with the jacket, but I'm really not a good advisor on color.

I love it, but then I am also a fan of wearing all the colours and am resistant to change. I think the fact that the top is solid makes it all ok and spring is the time to look crayola, easter egg, rainbow, etc.

I fear pattern (on me) and I think it looks cute, so I think you're fine.

I'm ancient so don't listen to me, but I think that the top would go better with a skirt which included that blue colour. On the other hand, you're young and pretty, so you look lovely anyway.
