What I Wore Wednesday - vacation edition


We arrived home yesterday from Sunriver - the Central Oregon resort town where we spent the last 5 days with my best friend Jana and her family. 


Yesterday was also my birthday - I turned 32. (Which isn't so bad except that I momentarily forgot my age and thought I was turning 31, and then felt pretty disappointed when my husband kindly pointed out my mistake.)

What's fun about having your birthday on your last day of vacation: getting presents from not just your family, but your friends, when you're still in your pajamas. 

What's not fun about having your birthday on your last day of vacation: spending 4 hours in the car driving back home, unpacking, realizing you have no groceries, and being too wiped to go anywhere to eat so you settle for toast for your birthday dinner.

Not that I'm complaining. After all Russell didn't get me just one, but two birthday cards to start my day off right. Showing that even though I got my birthday present earlier this month, he was honoring my high-maintenance demand fondest wish to always get a little something on the actual day of my birth.

Brownie points well earned, babe. 

And now for the outfits...

tee: Shade, coral top: Bass outlet, capris: Plato's Closet, sandals: Payless, necklace: gift from Mexico

swimsuit: Fred Meyers, coverup: Goodwill, sunnies: Target
(day 4 - trip to the Lava Caves and Bend for a little shopping before spending the evening in the Village)
tank: Old Navy, skirt: Gap (Goodwill), sandals: Target, belt: borrowed from Jana (I forgot to pack any)

On me: tee: Shade, tunic: BCBG outlet, capris: Old Navy (Goodwill), sandals: Target. On Jana: top: Ross, cami and capris: Kohl's, watch: World Market

I was pretty happy with my vacation outfits given the fact that I didn't go buy anything new for the trip, a shocking shift from my norm. 

(I did have a very successful shopping trip to Old Navy while on vacation... and am looking forward to wearing a couple of new things when we leave in 2 more days for camping. So I guess I'm back to my old self ;)

Yep, where off on another quick vacation over the Labor day holiday! Why not drag summer out as long as possible, right? :)

  1. I love your style - you layer and use colors very well :)
    I love shopping while I'm on vacation.. imo, it's one of the best things about vacation!

  2. Happy birthday! Sounds like you had a great celebration surrounded by those you love.

    Your Kohl's top was my favorite item of the week. Very flattering on you.

  3. Happy birthday! How fun to spend your birthday on vacation (even if it was the end and you had the car ride).

    Love your outfits, you looked cute but comfy.

  4. Happy late Birthday!!

    You are too cute and vacation looks good on you!!


  5. Sounds like such a fun trip! We are getting ready to head to Chicago for a long weekend and I'm SOO ready to get away. :) Love your outfits...the black and white striped top is adorable!

  6. OOOOh I am so jealous that you were in Sunriver!!! That is my favorite place here in good old Oregon. I would go there every year if possible! I haven't been there in years and I need to get back there with my family!

  7. Happy Birthday!!! You and your bestie are adorable! :)

    I love you black and white butterfly top! Looks great on you! :)

  8. Love the pic of you and Jana..course I love that yellow tunic when ever you wear it. Loved SaturDAY ..I already admired the blue nike jacket. Also Monday and Friday..looking good !!

  9. I got to be honest... Friday's top looks hideous on you. You should probably give it to your sister IMMEDIATELY!!!

    Okay... so it looks freakin' fantastic, as do you!! Sigh.

    But really, I'll take the top of your hands, I'm nice like that!!

  10. You look fab, love the denim skirt.

    This is only my third week linking up at WIWW.
    I currently have a fun anything goes linky at my blog that runs Friday through Monday each week. I just announced a new monthly “desperate 4 date night” linky and would love for you to join in on the fun. Here is the link explaing more.

    Thanks for you time and hope to see you soon.

  11. Oh no. You were one of *those* people at the Village looking all cute while I got accidentally dragged there without makeup, without a shower, in an old t-shirt and hat? I glared at everyone that looked cute. It could have been you. ;)

    Only kidding. I'd have been happy to see you under any circumstances. Even when I looked like a hobo.

  12. I'm so jealous. You wear the cutest clothes even on vacay. That just isn't right!! I adore that denim skirt.

    Hope you enjoy your camping trip. Can't wait to see your Old Navy finds!

  13. Love all your vacation picks! Thanks for stopping by my little blog :). Hope to see ya back soon!

  14. Adorable as usual! I love that Kohl's striped top with the big splashy white flowers! Too cute.

    Oh, and I really want to grab that last yellow top right off you and wear it. I don't have ANYTHING that is yellow, not yet, anyway ;0) and I'm not even sure that I can wear it with my coloring.

    But it looks so good on you that you make me want to try it!

    I saw a picture of you in one of your outfits on a gal's pininterest account, isn't that funny? I googled ways to fold a scarf and there you were, lol!

    Here's the link, scroll down and look on the right hand side and you'll see yourself!

  15. I adore that black & white stripped top (the one from Kohl's). ADORE it.
    I have the stripped top from shade too - only in blue. It's one of my favorites.
    p.s. happy birthday! hope it was a fantastic day!

  16. Happy Belated! You don't look a day over 25.
