When I woke up this morning and we decided to walk down the street for some New Year's Day Brunch, I wanted to start the day off right with a cute outfit rather than something lazy, and I was glad I did because it set the mood for the whole, wonderful day.
I love this dress. It's Ralph Lauren, but I bought it at Savers In Austin while I was there last week. The jacket is an old favorite. I always thought I wanted a motorcycle jacket, but then I bought this one and a motorcycle one both at the thrift store one day at found myself wearing only this one. It's much more ladylike, which is very much my style and the sleeve length is absolute perfection.
There's just something about wearing yellow white and black together that I love. Remember this outfit? Of course it's also the pallet for this blog, and it's what I want in our living room if I ever persuade Ryan that yellow walls aren't too extreme. His reaction when I suggested it: "Well, Niko will love it!" (Yellow is Ryan's four-year-old nephew Niko's favorite color.) My response: "Well, Niko has great taste!"
The bee color pallet also turned out to be a perfect match for Honey, the restaurant where we ate, no?
