WiW: A Casual BBQ Party :)

Finally! Done R1 year and out and about to welcome the new R1 bunch into the warm company of our specialty! YAY! 

I went with something simple because last year one of my friends said it was really warm, so I could shed the jacket if I wanted.

Funny story - someone offered me $50 for the jacket today! :) She said she loved it and how it fit and she WANTED IT SO BAD. You'll notice I currently still own the jacket (I bought it for $11.40 from Forever 21's clearance section).

Hope this selection meets with your approval!

    Thanks! Definitely felt more appropriately dressed than some of the others who probably floundered at "casual" :p

    Great story - you can't put a price on perfection, even if you did buy it on clearance. :D

    Congrats on finishing R1!!

  • kkards replied 4 years ago

    Fab look!
    What a nice validation of your choice

  • Raisin replied 4 years ago

    Love the mustard with the jean jacket. Parfait!

    So I take it you didn't sell it?

  • La Belle Demimondaine replied 4 years ago

    This is such a cute outfit!  I admire your courage in wearing a light-colored dress.   Because if I wore it, I would be a complete magnet for BBQ sauce...  :D 

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    Tee hee. No, I didn't sell it. My dad was a bit disappointed: "But think of the profit!" But I wouldn't have been able to replace it with a jean jacket I equally loved for that price.

    I don't eat too much at BBQ - so no sauce :) I sticked (stuck to?) to clear liquids, too!

  • Raisin replied 4 years ago

    Good call! I would have been tempted because I would be thinking exactly what your dad said! Lol, but who cares, it looks great and for the extra $39 it makes no sense to sell it.

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    Tee hee, don't worry, Raisin, I'm sure if you found something you loved just as much you wouldn't sell out if someone asked :)

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    So nice to see your hair down, Lyn! #2 looks wonderful.

  • goldenpig replied 4 years ago

    Beautiful! Love the longer hair on you too!

  • clearlyclaire replied 4 years ago

    You look lovely and good call on keeping the jacket. Now you have something that is unavailable, like a limited edition or something, lol!

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    You know you are on YLF too much when you read "BBQ party" as a Buy Buy Quick shopping party.
    I'm glad you didn't sell the jacket. It would be hard to replace. You look wonderful.

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    Such a cute skirt, and I love the colors - this is one of my fav outfits of yours! And I'm glad you didn't sell the jacket :)

  • Nicole D replied 4 years ago

    Ha!  WHat a compliment to be offered money for your jacket.  It is fab. I like the pink wallet with the outfit.  

  • pil replied 4 years ago

    I love this on you, lyn*, wonderful colors on you and an excellent choice for the occasion. Wise move to keep the jacket - don't forget the cost of your time in finding a replacement. Tell your dad it could have acutally cost you money in the end :)

    How many years is your residency?
    New phone cover? I seem to remember a big pug dog face before.

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    Such a pretty outfit! I'm glad you kept the jacket. It's the perfect way to dress your fancy frocks down, and a lovely summery wash. 

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    @ Pil - You're so observant! My previous Kate Spade cover (the composition book) met a bad end. I dropped my phone down 8 stairs and thought that was the end of my phone (a kick was involved in it as I was walking down the stairs). Luckily, the case shattered but the phone was perfect! So I had to buy Kate Spade again :) - Puppies!!! They are Scotties, I think!

  • Beth Ann replied 4 years ago

    Love this silhouette, Lyn.  It has your feminine style all over it.  I love the way you've been allowing your signature look to grow with you in the past year!

    Congratulations on the completion of your R1!

    Wow! One of your best ever.
