FANCY PANTS [THE FORTIETH BIRTHDAY EDITION]


And look whose had a most memorable Fancy Pants day today?

Although it was my birthday a week and a half ago, I wanted to wait until I could hang out with some of the coolest girls I know.


Today while sitting around this table, I couldn't believe how blessed I am. Seriously, the best friends a girl could ask for.


We did brunch at Bella Vedere in the Yarra Valley. Such a delightful place. And the menu looked so good, I really wanted to stay for lunch too.


Melbourne didn't quite give us the best weather, but I don't think the rain dampened our spirits at all.

(Or perhaps that was just me?)


And because it's my birthday edition, I thought I'd share not only what I wore this week, but also the style of some of my beautiful friends (because they all looked so gorgeous)...








After brunch, my two of my oldest friends/bridesmaids (who flew in from interstate to be there) meandered back to my place via another winery.


How amazing was the view?


And it was so lovely to spend the day with friends I've had for... (wait for it) 25 years. In fact, the whole day was mind-blowingly special. One I won't forget for a very long time.

When was the last time you had an excuse to dress up for a special occasion? Do you marvel at your amazing friends and think they're beautiful from the inside all the way out?

Why don't you linky up your Fancy Pants post below (yes, you need to have a photo in an outfit!) and add a link back to me in your post. You can also include button below. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are dressing up this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
