Sunshine

We really need some - weather in Toronto has been erratic at best. So when I saw this beautiful yellow peplum sweater at Banana Republic I just couldn't resist. It reminds me of spring and summer and I'm sure we could all use some sunshine on days like these.

This is the last post featuring my brother-in-law Kevin from Kaptured Memories. I would hire him if he didn't live 4 hours away and if I could pay him in appreciation.




My obsession with peplum continues. When purchasing this sweater I bought a Medium because it was longer in the torso and allowed the peplum to drape nicer and longer.






I can't get enough of the pleating in back. Love the shape it is giving me.

  1. I saw those sweaters in store and thought they were pretty! I am just not sure about the high crewneck for me as it tends not to do much for the chest area. LOVE the colour though.

  12. You must have been reading my mind when I put out my last post about my other favourite colour which just so happens to be bright yellow. That colour is stunning on you. And the Prada shoes - I seriously love especially with the little gold detail underneath. Do not ever scrape the underneath of those on anything! Seriously bar to car shoes for their protection (not your comfort) ;o))
