“Be eccentric now, don’t wait for old age to wear purple’. - Regina Brett
Welcome back FI readers!

So I was carded today when I stopped at the store to pick up some wine. Whaaattt!!! I thought it was super funny and a joke. But he insisted and I showed my id. The whole time I was thinking dude, I’m old enough to be your mom, don’t be fooled by the lipstick. Hehe. Like my good friend said, it’s a great problem to have. But what if you don’t have your id on you?

This past week was crazy busy. Getting ready for ‘Open House’ at school. A math lesson study/ being observed. I feel like I was run over by a truck. It's honestly been nonstop long and busy days, oh to be a teacher! On the bright side, there’s only 10 days of school left and it’s Hello Summer Vacation. Hello sleeping in. Hello traveling the world. Hello having nothing to do. Until the end of August.

This outfit takes a classic 3 piece suit up a notch with the deep pleats on the skirt and a jacket I describe as a Batman cape because of how luxurious it is and how it looks opened up. The silk buttoned up shirt is actually a bodysuit that ends in a gorgeous dainty purple lace bottom that unfortunately I can’t show, hehe. Power suit for sure. Perfect for that business meeting and most definitely an evening out. Boardroom meets street.  

 You know I was drawn to it like a magnet. The best part is that it’s purple. The color of my life. Isn’t there a quote that says "if it’s purple, I usually buy it". Yes I do. 
Your thoughts?

Until next time, keep thinking the purple thoughts, Xo...

  1. Lol!! I was in the same situation few weeks ago. I went to a supermarket to buy a knife and it wouldn't be sold to me unless I showed an id. I thought, huh!? I'm 29 damn it!! Haha..
    You look bold and beautiful. This colour is all kinds of awesome. :))

  19. Carded? Please take it and be happy with it because you look fabulous Idu. I remember my club days when i used to get carded and still have them ask me, "Are you sure this is yours?" Yes sir, that is my ID, thank you very much :)). I even got carded at the movie theatre like, say what now? LOL. That one was an epic moment. Happy that you see me that way :).

    Now, is that a cape or what? My gosh, in love with this purple outfit. You look just better and better by the day Idu. Have a great week ahead and get some rest when you can :).

  23. Carded? Take it as a beautiful compliment because you are beautiful and looking better each day darling. It reminds me of my club days when i was always asked at the door, "Is this really yours?" and i answer, "Yes, it is my ID, thank you". The funniest was when i was carded while going to watch a movie, hahaha. I was like, "Say what now?" That one was epic, but i am not complaining.

    Now is that a cape or what? Wow! Purple was made for you and i just adore this all purple outfit on you. Purple is pretty and you wear solid colors, all colors...everything so well. Please keep smiling Idu!

  38. Purple on Idu! What's not to love? You look divine, every bit like royalty. Bellissima!

    Even I, "a woman of a certain age", still get carded (like at Trader Joe's) when I go to pick up a bottle of vino every once in a while. I take it as validation as to how youthful I still look, and I'm thankful. And it almost always happens when I'm not wearing makeup! I get a kick out of the surprised looks on folks' faces when I'm out with my daughter and she calls out "mom!" It never gets old.

    Raise your glass to looking eternally young and being carded :-)

    1. The Cheech! I can't stop thinking purple thoughts. It sure was a validation for me. I feel you tho, makeup ages us. So true, my kids and I blend in so well too. My glass is raised darling. To looking young eternally, and being carded. Hehe. Thank you. Kisses...

  39. Oh, yes, the colour of your life is definitely purple! It is made for you and did I mention that this colour is a symbol for the own life task? So it looks like you are on the best possible way <3 Love you in this outfit as usual, it's perfection! And I can imagine it is not always easy to be a teachter ... how good that vacation is near :)
