Sunshine yellow and stripes

Happy Youth Day to all the South Africans who read this blog. Hope you are having a wonderful day off 🙂

The title of this post is somewhat wishful thinking as there is not a whole lot of sunshine around here right now, but last night  I came across these photos that I took a few weeks ago and forgot to post. No time like the present, although I am kind of out of season here, hopefully it will remind all of you who are bundled up in heavy coats and woolly socks that in just a few short months we will shed our numerous layers and once again wear a normal amount of clothes 🙂

So, although it’s definitely not an outfit I will be wearing again soon (unless the goosebump look is in) this is one of my favorite blazers to wear because it always makes me think of sunshine. (Oh the irony … ) I love pairing it with a more relaxed top to offset the fact that it is a pretty prim jacket. Plus it gives me more options to wear it instead of just at work.

What’s one color that always makes you happy?

Here comes the woolly mammoth

The title of this post is courtesy of my Dad who said that exact phrase when I wore this outfit for lunch with my family. Not exactly a compliment but I am undeterred in my love for furry vests. I love how they keep you warm without sweltering and I love the fact that, because it kind of looks outrageous, you can add lavish accessories and it still works 🙂

Any other “woolly mammoths” out there who love furry vests or am I really on the extinct list?

Have a fabulous Friday everyone!
