The yellow coat is back again! I've been wearing my coat from Modclothalmost everyday since I got it. When I wear it with this outfit, I feel a little Beatles "Yellow Submarine" Mod which is sort of fun. It has been on and off sunny in Seattle for the past few days and the weather has felt almost Spring like! On a day this week when it was actually pretty sunny and not very cold outside, I took the opportunity to give my pale pale legs a chance to see the sun since it probably wont turn to for reals Spring in Seattle for another few months. I wore my new stripey cute dress fromLily Boutique. The style of the dress is a little more cute than my usual vibe but I'm really diggin' stripes right now and I really like it layered with a turtle neck for Winter. Plus, I love the stripes peeking out below my yellow coat.
Let's get real here. The stripey black super tall platform shoes ARE my most favorite pair of shoes in my closet. I love them. But I rarely get a chance to wear them out of the house because I'm 5'9" without them and I'm about 6'1" with them on. And I don't really like the attention I get from being a tall young lady + wearing a short dress + wearing psychotically tall shoes. Alas, my favorite shoes are destined to be worn with pants to nice events and maaaaaybe every once in a blue moon, with a dress that hits closer to the knees. I wore them with this outfit just for dress up fun and didn't leave the house with them on. Instead I changed into my current favorite flats from Blowfish Shoes. They are one sale right now and the only sizes left are 9 and 10 so snag them while you can!
