Pho Stripe-gon

Okay, that was my lame attempt at a clever title.  

I really should avoid horizontal stripes, but I couldn't resist getting this tee from Free People.  It was the perfect thing to wear during our gluttonous Mother's Day Vietnamese dinner tonight at Pho Saigon.  Me loves Vietnamese food! nom nom nom.  The food baby was well hidden under the sack-like silhouette.  And even though the tee is quite sheer and airy, there was one point during dinner that I was sweating like a pig.  I ordered my dish hot and still decided to douse it with rooster sauce.  Yum-o... my mouth was on fire and I loved every moment of it.  Tonight was also my first time trying green papaya salad... ahhh, I'm in love.  It's deliciously refreshing.

How did you spend Mother's Day?  To all the mommy's and furbaby mommy's that read my blog, Happy Mother's Day!  And Happy Mother's Day to my Mom! Love you more and more each day. :D

{tee:  Free People; buy here | boots: Jeffrey Campbell "Lita" | necklace: F21 | bag: Volcom}

Love, S

You are too adorable! I love pho as well, probably my favourite comfort food. I absolutely adore your hair and those JC's <3.

P.S. OPI Shatter? YES PLEASE.

WA HAHAHAHAHAHA.

I get food baby, too. I don't give a shit about hiding it, though. I got my man, and he loves me no matter how gross I am!

<3

But for the record, you look rather AWESOME in that horizontal stripe shirt. ... the rules don't apply to EVERYONE, you know! Just FAT people, and you, my dear are not FAT. LOLOLZ.

I LOVE this on you! Then I hurried over to the link you provided and discovered that unfortunately, it would barely cover my bootie. Boohooo. There are so many short dresses I want to wear now that it's getting warm but I'm too damn tall. Guess I need to stock up on the "safety shorts" for underneath ;) You look fantastic tho <3

Elle said...

lol why no stripes? they look TERRIFIC on you! And the food sounds yummy!!!

p.s. completely unrelated but I love your hair! I had a similar style a year ago but it did NOT look half as beautiful as yours. :)

Viv said...

LOVE your nails and the title is cute.. so don't sell yourself short :)


btw.. Lita's = <33
