Checkered birthday outfit

Happy 35th birthday to me! Here’s to my first outfit post in our new yard. I’m so excited to have an outdoor space now. It was a rather cold and miserable day (as often happens to us April birthday babies), so lots of wool was in order.

Unfortunately you can’t really tell that I dared to match up two different checked patterns, in my overalls and my blouse. But I think it worked. You’ll just have to take my word on that!

This is the patio area to the side of our garage. It needs a lot of work, but we have some ideas. The slightly dodgy and clearly long-enjoyed picnic table was left with the house and will become our first DIY project, as we plan to restore it soon so we can enjoy it for more years to come.

Outfit details: wool checked overalls from Jitterbuggin, boat shoes from Rocket Originals, wooden squirrel pin and checked blouse from Etsy, bakelite and another vintage plastic bangle from here or there, Irish sweater purchased on the Aran Islands.

I’ve been having a lovely day so far. I worked from home, Mel brought me an ice cream cake (my favorite), and we’re ordering pizza from a highly recommended (so I’ve read) pizza place in our new neighborhood that’s been around almost as long as our house has. Cheers to happy birthdays!
