Outfit of the Day: 30.

The cat is out of the bag:  I turned 30 on September 10th.

and this is what I wore that day…

(dress:  Zachary’s Smile, boots: Frye from Johnny Sole, long black house coat: Folly, earrings: betsy & iya)

I was terrified that I would feel terrified when the day actually came.  When the final moments ticked away and thrust me into a new decade… the truth— I felt proud.  I felt the way one must feel when they’re celebrating 30 years of business, or when the Academy Awards celebrated their 30th year, or heck, Miss America.  I felt like I’d earned it.

And here in Boulder, surrounded by young college students just beginning the decade I just finished, I can’t help but feel more like myself than ever before.

I am Betsy.  I am 30.  And I am loving it.

Thank you to everyone who sent me such generous birthday wishes.  The flowers, the gifts, the community, the love …it goes such a long way.

Happy 30 to all of you!
