Style File 08.31.11

First, let me say a big HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Punky!! Yay, It’s your birthday!! Ok, now back to the post. I have had these pictures forever. Whoops. There is something so fun about wearing back and White and then some other bright color. My two favorites would be neon pink and yellow. I went with yellow on this one.

I am going to make this one short and sweet. It is 1:24am. Yikes. I don’t know why I am up so late. Well, that’s a lie. I am up so late because I just finished making an instagram Blurb book for Rowan. It is 160 pages worth of pictures from her 1st year of life. I can’t wait to share it with you guys!! Now I am up getting all my blog posts scheduled, so tomorrow can be about playing with Rowan. I am trying to make at least 1 day a week a no internet sort of day. Scheduling blog posts help with that. I just need to work on not doing that at 1:30 in the morning. (I am such a mom. I use to be able to stay up all hours of the night)

Have a good Wednesday everyone!!

Outfit Details:
Yellow Jacket: J.Crew (scored at Swap)

  25. Love Love LOVE this outfit. Yellow is my favorite color and I try and wear it all the time. I was in Burlington Coat Factory the other day and looking for fall and winter coats. They had THE CUTEST yellow waist length double-button coat. And it was on sale. But, alas, it was not meant to be because it did not fasten over my top. (Stupid big breasts get on my nerves sometimes) This jacket is great! I wish I could find one to suit me.

  26. I love this outfit on you!

  27. you look so skinny! what a hot mama πŸ™‚

  28. I really like this oufit!
    And I’m looking forward to the pictures πŸ™‚

  29. Oh i love your dress !!! This outfit is perfect !

  30. I love the combination of a black and white print with another bright colour too! And this jacket is particularly pretty! I love how the buttons of the jacket mimic the polka-dots on the dress -they look about the same size! – and I don’t think it gets much lovelier than this shade of yellow! πŸ™‚
