In My Closet...Floral Pleats

T.G.I.F dolls!  Hope this Friday has been SUPER good to you!  I woke up this morning TOTALLY excited to call mom and wish her a WONDERFUL Happy Birthday.  Still half asleep when she answered, I belted out the birthday song like bad karaoke and she loved it. Then, the convo went something like this:

MOM: Thank you. That's so nice, but you're one day late.
ME: WHAT?  No way mom. Your birthday is on June 30th.
MOM: Yes it is, but today is July 1st.
ME: WHAT? No way mom. (Long pause) Today is Friday June 30th.
MOM: (Laughing) I think you have been working too hard.
ME: (Long pause) Oh my God mom! I am SOOO sorry!!!

We sure had a good laugh about it. Mom - I LOVE YOU and Happy (Belated) Birthday! Can't wait to see you to celebrate!

Before I leave you for the weekend, here's something I'd LOVE to wear on a nice weekend outing.  I am crazy for PLEATS and floral prints right now!  What better way to feel pretty and girlie right?  And, this is in my FAVORITE color!!!  The beautiful vintage pleated skirt will be added to my online store for some beautiful belle to flaunt.

Here's to a beautiful festive weekend! 
Be safe and spread the POSITIVITUDE to old friends and new ones too!

I love this outfit! The pleated skirt is such a great style on you.

My mom once wrote "I love you Army" on my birthday card instead of "Amy," and it's been a joke between us ever since. :)

Here's to wishing your mom a happy belated! Cheers.

Hey... again,
I also wanted to let you know that there is a way to get around retyping your URL after each comment (that is if you don't already know)...

Go to Edit User Profile, and then to Display Name.. Fill in with "Linh@la-lalinh.blog...." (NO quotation marks), and when you leave a comment somewhere, that's how your name / blog is listed, i.e. see mine :) VOILA!

It took me a little while with how to combat that issue, and I was always typing my very long URL, it became a pain in the you-know-what!

Feel free to share this comment, or not, up to you. Just wanted you to know. Even if it is unsolicited advise :)

Bye!
