I have two outfits with high happiness. Neither is news to anyone here, but both show evidence of Angie's influence on my wardrobe.

Outfit 1: The first photo of Angie I saw featured her fab pixie and a denim jacket worn with a fancy skirt or dress. I had worn my own hair short for most of my life, but I'd never owned a denim jacket. Instantly, I could see its possibilities, and this was one of my first purchases when I joined YLF. I've been wearing this exact jacket ever since.

I biked to my friend's place in white sneakers. Culottes. And the blooms on my top make me very happy.

Outfit 2: You've all seen before. Dress was an Angie recommendation. Red is my colour of the year. MOVE was my word of the year. This dress encapsulates both.

Thank you, Angie, for general inspiration, specific recommendations, and most of all for your joyful, practical, positive, inclusive attitude towards personal style and community-building. You are one in a million. Here's hoping the next 50 years are as golden as those fields in your photo!

And I've ordered some sun up for this afternoon. Here's hoping!
