Time Is A Mouth To Feed


On Friday I met up with one of my friends from high school, Lissette, for a nice lunch in the city. It was really great catching up with her for a few hours. It's always really refreshing to see someone from your past as the same, wonderful person they were when you last met with them. Lissette is one of the most real people I know. Her honesty is a breath of fresh air, and I really loved talking about the past and what we've both been up to in the past year. One of the most important things we talked about is relationships, mainly friendships, and keeping people close to you only if they deserve your love and trust. I've had some struggles with friends in the past years, mostly in high school, and this is something I struggle with. But after a good talk on Friday, and a lot of past struggles, I'm determined to try and surround myself only with people who really care about me.

Of course, we were so busy chatting (and eating lemon ricotta pankcakes!) that I have no pictures, but I did take outfit pictures once I got back home, so here are those. I wanted to wear something bright and fun, and this dress fit the bill. Was it a bit warm for a long knit vest? Of course. Did that stop me? Of course not.

Oh! And before I forget, I added a few more items to my blog shop. So go and check those out if you like :)

Dress: Pretty Penny in Oakland, Vest: Delia's, Shoes: Urban Outfitters






Until tomorrow,


  1. You really look great Nicole! I am just loving all the bright color you have going on in your outfit...and your hair looks so pretty like that. It truly is wonderful catching up with beautiful people from your past (something I wish I had more time to do). Lemon ricotta pancakes sound divine:)

  2. love this color combo.
    it is always nice to meet up with old friends and eat pancakes!! :)
    i need to get in touch with my gf' so far away from them it a bit hard to meetup with them..bummer.
    you look beautiful nicole.
    enjoy your sunday love.

  3. I love these colours on you, so fantastically bright and happy! I love catching up with my girl friends after some time apart, it is always amazing to see how, despite circumstances changing, you can still talk about anything and everything xo
    ps - major pancake craving now :P

  4. Meeting old friends after some time apart is such a great thing! I did the same a few weeks ago at a friend's wedding and it was amazing!

    I really like this outfit! It's so nice to see a lovely colourful dress and a mustard vest! And like you made us used to, you little details in the accessories are always the perfect touch.

  5. I am in Love with your gorgeous dress!


  6. The vest looks great with that dress! The colors are gorgeous!

  7. This is quite an awesome color combination. I love the plaid, totally seventies. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours!

  8. what a pretty outfit with bright colors!
    i can relate on the whole relationship thing. when the time comes that i move away for college, i plan on creating a friend base with true friends that sincerely care. i'm so sick of seeing these fake friends in's horrible.

    i love your hair up, by the way!

  9. great outfit, love the colours and fit. looking fabulous


  10. That vest really changes the look of the dress (in a good way). I keep wearing outfits that are slightly too warm for the weather, but whatever! Friendships are interesting because you think you have more than you do but once the convenience aspect falls away, people start to fade out of your life.

  11. This dress is so so cute! Your yellow nails complement it perfectly :)

    Great friends are what make our life rich. They are rare and valuable and we should feel blessed everyday for having them in our lives!

    Have a great week Nicole!

    Virginie ♥

  12. Pretty plaid!
    Meeting up with old friends is the best. It's always nice to have a few friends who will always be there no matter what, even if you haven't talked in months!

  13. You wear that sweater vest Nicole :)! I love the whole vibe of the outfit and I am so glad that you got to spend time with an old friend! Also, those pancakes sound delicious! D:

  14. I love that dress!! The colours are absolutely gorgeous.

  15. This is such a pretty transition outfit for summer -> fall. Love the colors and the long long vest. I have a similar one that I'm not super tempted to drag out. Though it's black...

    I can definitely relate to the friends thing. Over the last few years, I've grown apart from a lot of people but in the process have figured out who is important to me.

  16. I really love this look! I'm loving the caranby & 70s trend right now. I'm really getting into mustard yellows
