Lookbook: A Little Bit of Sunshine

F21_plaid_shirt2F21_plaid_shirtF21_plaid_shirt3F21_plaid_shirt4 
What I’m Wearing
*Top: Forever 21 (similar in pink and with ruffles.  Love the fall colors of this top.)
*Shorts: J Crew Chino Shorts (Buy here but out of my yellow color.  The longer 9″ shorts still have my color and on sale for $19.99)
*Shoes: Dior – Miss Dior Pumps (Buy here in black.  Did you see the gorgeous blue velvet versions?)
*Clutch: vintage Gucci – I am so into gray bags/clutches this season.  Did you see the RM MAC clutch in gray?  Love it!  Also really liking this gray Melie Bianco clutch and it’s on sale!
*Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Buy here – mine are the gold frames or similar – I like the black frame with the gray lens)
*Jewelry: t+j Designs Delicate Luxe Rhinestone Necklace, Rhinestone Ribbon Bracelet and earrings will be part of our new collection to be launched soon.
This week went by SO fast, I can hardly believe it’s Friday!  Earlier this week I had a chance to meet up with the gorgeous Rachel of Vuesociety.com (which is her blog turned into online clothing boutique – check it out, she’s got some amazing stuff!) and it is so nice to meet up with other entreprenurial ladies that are going through the exact same things that I am in starting our own business.  Everyone just sees the front end of things but the back end of things is truly the hardest part!  It was nice sharing our stories and laughing about all the things we had to go through just to get through our store launches and how there are still so many things that we want to change.  One of the things that I miss about the corporate world is just being around like-minded people and being able to share and bounce ideas off each other and get feedback about your work.  I realize that now that I don’t work in a traditional office, I need that more than ever!  
We met at Cake Envy a new cupcake shop in Greenlake.  I’m a serious cupcake lover and have been to almost every cupcake place in the greater Seattle area and I can honestly say that Cake Envy was one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!  I’m not one that loves frosting and I usually shave off at least half of the frosting that most cupcake bakeries put on but they had the lightest most yummiest – like whipped cream – frosting ever.  I brought one home to my husband and he agreed.  Definitely try it out if you are in the area!

    I love this look from your hair to your shoes! I actually have those shorts in white and I love the fit because it isn't too tight or too short, and they don't make me look like I have huge thighs (like most white shorts do for me). I saw them in pink but I didn't know they had them in yellow! How fun! It's such a casual, fun outfit but you still manage to bring class to it! Perfect!

    @Jackie sorry, I actually don't have any good tips. Most of my vintage bags are just lucky finds from antique shopping.
