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

What did you guys have to eat and how was it? I'll definitely check that place out soon! I'm not vegan myself, but I do enjoy eating my veggies way more... than lets say... having Whataburger. ^_^

I have a vegan diet, and there are NO places to eat where I live. Maybe I AM in the wrong city.

Thanks for your comment on my blog.. I got excited because your famous hahaha

I think the belt it lovely also!


Photo of blogtastic

question...you seem to wear these lace shirts a lot and i love the look. i was contemplating getting one, but how do you orchestrate the undergarmets? for instance, in this outfit, is your jacket the only thing covering you up? i could always wear a cami or something underneath but i'd think that would ruin the look.

Am glad to read your article,Unfortunately, my English very poor, I hope you will not mind

I hope you all well


Photo of Manja

Wheee, you look amazing! I stil don't get it...do you also have to dress up for St. Patty's day when you are actually not Irish? That would be weird, I think.

Photo of Cherie

so funny you both wore the same belt!!

Photo of Moda Cadısı

Love your mom's shoes :)

Photo of Amy

I found this amazing octopus ring on Etsy that I had to show you! It reminds me of a de-blingified version of your amazing Antonio Palladino ring. Anyways, I'm not the seller or anything, I just thought of you when I saw it! Here's the link:


All the best!

This is probably my favorite outfit of you so far, I was so enamoured i wrote about it in my blog (hope you don't mind). I have the same hat as you and your outfit looks incredinly chic.
