Today is my 26th birthday!  Yay!  I’m actually substituting today, so this is not what I am wearing.  My outfit posts are always a few days behind, so this is what I wore for an amazingly relaxing Sunday.  We seemed to have a warm front then, because the weather was perfect.  It was nice to feel a hint of spring coming.  I opened up all the windows in the house, got the laundry done and cleaned the kitchen.  I actually find cleaning relaxing, because it’s such a relief to be able to get it done without feeling rushed.  I got some spinning done as well and took an afternoon nap while listening to the birds outside.  Absolutely. awesome. day.

This outfit contains two new items.  That J. Crew breton striped blouse is a deliciously soft cashmere/cotton blend that I scored recently on Ebay.  For $15.  Love.  You saw the Dansko Sela sandals on Saturday.  I really didn’t expect to get to wear them so soon, but it was wonderful to finally let my feet be free of socks for a bit.

After I get off work today, I plan to check out a new thrift store near where I’m subbing.  Thrifting on my birthday is starting to become a sort of tradition for me.  I love taking time to explore the racks and search for treasures, but I often don’t have the time.  On my birthday, I make the time.  After that, I’m going out for sushi with a friend.  My boyfriend is working the night shift tonight, so we’ll be celebrating my birthday together this weekend.

What makes a perfectly relaxing day for you?  Do you have any special birthday traditions?
