    I was just thinking (after your last post) that your grandmother would be so proud of your style (I hope that makes sense) – timeless.

    This outfit features my favorite three C’s of fashion. Just goes to show how fantastic and non-boring classics can be.

    I wish they had a BR outlet or factory store near here. 🙁

    I really love the color of your top! I got a blouse in a similar color but a satin-y fabric, so I’m always looking for ways to wear it and other colors to pair it with.

    Like the belt detail.

    mustard yellow is so pretty to me.

    amazing how one little accessory…in this case…can do so much for an outfit.

    love your outfit but i have a question for you. Where did you learn your model poses?!
    Do you think up something and hold that pose for the 5 minutes it requires for whoever’s behind the camera to get ready and click.

    Very polished indeed! Love the color combo. Mustard is a beautiful color that would spice up any outfit. I absolutely love it with brown.

    Very, very nice…
