look book: sunny side up

October 21, 2010



We've been having a lot of rain in LA for the past couple weeks {so atypical}. It normally doesn't get to me since I looove the rain and it's such a rare occurrence that it always seems so special. When the weather is gray and gloomy, though, I can tend to wear a lot of dark colors, so I had to throw on my most cheerful yellow sweater!




sweater Madewell, blouse Banana Republic, skirt and flats J. Crew, purse Coach

On Sunday Matthew and I met up with his cousin Brian and his wife Karrie for brunch in Long Beach. We went to a crepe place so I got a yummy breakfast one..although I was craving nutella and banana soo badly! We talked about weddings, marriage, traveling, and their first baby that's due in January. It was a lot of fun and a nice little escape!

  5. You are such an Anthropologie model. I love the mustard color and the sweet skirt. And I can never decide between a Nutella crepe and a savory crepe. I wish they had mini Nutella crepes as a side dish or something.

  19. Yes tights!! Thank you. Love the ensemble. It's freezing where I'm at and all you fashionistas wear bare legs. This is something I could definitely pull off!

    Plus I was scared to wear them with flats but it looks great. I know, I'm a fashion phobe.

    Second: we're so happy for you, for the wedding, and it seems so hard (but exciting) to prepare for the ceremony without getting crazy!
    We're happy to hear that, maybe, you're planning your honeymoon to Italy...it could be so romantic! Where would you like to go? I suggest Venice or Florence...such beautiful cities! ^^
