You Should Get Your Birthday Off

The Wilson leather handbag by Dooney & Bourke

I’m a firm believer that it should be federal law that you are not required to work on your birthday. You shouldn’t have to go to work, clean your house, run errands or cook dinner. A birthday only happens once a year and we should take full advantage of this opportunity. Since I can’t go jewelry shopping, that was last week, I don’t want to work. Now there are many people who don’t think that I actually work anyways, but anytime you can’t do as you please, there is a little work involved.

My Mother-in-law was the one who said we should celebrate our birthdays to the fullest. She believed that as we age we should be able to extend our birthdays from one day to a full week. Kind of like getting additional vacation time the longer you work for a company. I’ve latched onto this theory and am going to run with it. So I’m taking tomorrow off to celebrate my birthday. It’s like taking a mental health day but with cake and ice cream. This means there won’t be a posting on my blog, but after a three day weekend of fun and frivolity I will be fresh for a new week.

Tangerine is pretty nice too

Now in the birthday present department I’ve done the usual pricing out of jewelry. Not that I don’t love jewelry, but I do have quite the jewelry wardrobe. I was thinking of maybe a Dooney & Bourke handbag. In particular I was thinking the Wilson leather handbag. It would be a great summer handbag, especially if I purchase it in bone. Its leather so it will last and the light color will go well with my summer outfits. It’s one of the few handbag colors I need to complete my collection. For all of you men out there, yes, women have handbag collections and we’re proud of them.

The styling is on point with a structured silhouette and two tones for versatility. The straps are long enough to sling the bag over my shoulder, yet structured enough to be carried by hand. Since I’m a pretty conservative dresser this handbag is perfect. It’s not that I don’t love the bright colors like cherry or tangerine; I just like to have a ton of versatility when I spend a small fortune on a leather handbag. So Friday is my birthday and I’m going to be out celebrating, not writing a blog or doing anything that remotely resembles work and I fully support everyone doing the same on their birthday.
