Happy St Pattys Day?

I think winter is gone for good-the sunlight here is sooo beautiful right now!  Nothing makes me sadder than grey skies, but nothing makes me happy like sunlight. Ahhhh. 
I tagged along with my mom this morning to run errands in Oak Cliff. While we were in the neighborhood we stopped for an early lunch at Spiral diner. It's all vegan food-and all really tasty.
Here's what we wore.

Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair skirt, Old Navy lace tanktop, Nina Ricci silk jacket, Balenciaga Spring 2008 booties, and vintage mouse belt buckle.

This was so funny-checked my BlogLovin' and I saw that Kelly (AKA the Glamourai) had done a post wearing exactly the same vintage mouse belt buckle as me today! Surfin' the same brain waves.

psst...don't you love her DIY bib necklace?

Today my mom wore her new mesh Stella Mccartney sandals.

Sweet shoes, mom.

Camera ran out of battery before I could photograph the restaurant but I snapped a picture of my strawberry shake with my phone.

I almost forgot that it's St. Patty's Day...yeah, yeah sorry I'm not wearing green. St. Patty's Day is always overshadowed by my dad's birthday, which is on the same day. Happy Birthday, dad.

Better sign off now...I have so much to do this week...I'm nervous about leaving for Austin and getting behind on things. Sigh. But I'm so excited anyway!

P.S. This is a little late but I did an interview for Breathless Vintage a while back-thanks so much Morgan! xo

I wish winter in L.A. would be over! I've been wearing tights every day for months. I love that mouse belt so much and I it is amazing when multiple vintage pieces pop up! Reg. the Stella heels, I love her but have you ever had bad luck with her shoes? Like them falling apart? I have, so I am curious.

Photo of Emmy

love your outfit! the lace top is particularly amazing. you're so lucky you have a mom that dresses well, i basically have to tell my mom what to wear :-)

It's weird, I think this is the first time you ever mentioned your Dad. It makes me feel like you, your Mom and sister always been photographed on this blog made it sound like your parents are separated.

Unless they are, because if anything you could've just been saying, Happy Birthday just in case he reads your blog.

Yummy looking milkshake by the way.

LOVE 5th Avenue Shoe Repair, and now there's a store in my city that's starting to stock it! Unreal! LOVE your outfit, and OMG! Am so so jealous of your mom! LOVE those Stella's! (Have been eyeing them in the nude colour), and it looks gorgeous with that short-sleeved jacket!

Apologies, I hope I didn't offend you. I was merely curious.

Happy St Patty's Day back to you too. And I do wish I owned more green things.
