Today's Everyday Fashion: The Fashion Show

The first half of yesterday was spent running around in the yellow and blue look I posted. The night was spent in this ensemble, going out to dinner with my friend Alison, and then attending a fashion show put on by my friend Layne. I had an awesome time catching up with Alison, enjoying a yummy dinner at Kona Grill and of course, Layne's fashion show was tons of fun and the best part - it raised money for breast cancer research! (check out her photography website)

About my outfit: It was so nice being able to wear a blazer and not sweat to death! (File under: annoying things Florida people say about the weather.) I took advantage of the cooler Kansas temps to wear my white blazer - this time pairing it with browns and a double-necklace look I stole from Gwenyth Paltrow. It was really comfy and fit the occasion!
