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?
