i’m wearing: lavender blouse from banana republic (old), white mother skinnies (i found mine at nordstrom rack), nine west pumps, curly in the city tribal clutch, asos cuff and my new favorite ring from ann taylor.

i apologize for the last “old lady hand” picture (my husband called it the “chicken claw”-lol). my hands look like they are 90 years old. but i really LOVE my new ring. so yesterday was our FOUR year wedding anniversary. we BOTH forgot. my mom called and wished us happy anniversary…oops! on one hand, i can NOT believe it’s been four years. and on the other, i’ve known him since i was 21 (we didn’t start dating until i was 26) so i can barely remember life without him in it. gawd i’m old. wait, i already said that. =) happy friday friends.

    WOW – only 4 years? I didn’t realize you two were still newlyweds…happy anniversary! Um, I totally have old lady hands – my husband isn’t afraid to admit that my hands scare him and they are the MOST heavily edited thing in my photos (true story). Anyways, love that ring and you look so pretty in purple – have a happy weekend! (Two weeks until we get to hang out in Cali – woohoo…let the countdown begin)!!!

    Happy (belated!) Anniversary! It’s easy to forget when time flies by. I am seriously in love with this blouse, wish it wasn’t old! The color is such a pretty lavender-grey. And I definitely don’t think you have old lady hands!

    The chicken claw! LOL! I saw my hands the other day on the steering wheel and was immediately mortified to discover my hands go old almost overnight. WTH???? What do we do?

    Well you just let me know if you’d like a natural exfoliating mitt…that may eliminate the dry skin lol! I think you have beautiful hands nothing old lady at all. Happy 4 year anniversary, and to many more with you and Mr. Stylish Housewife 😉

    This outfit looks really good on you. It’s not fussy and it’s just beautiful on it’s own. I really like Lavender+White+Gold. I’m going to post something centered around this color scheme – I’m looking for a great pair of white jeans – – – I can’t seem to find them. Suggestions? I don’t want something see-through (so annoying when that happens). I should probably try AG or the brand you featured here.

    I’m having a GIVEAWAY – drop by 🙂
