What I Wore: Showing Some Skin

Continuing with my birthday fun...

Sean and I kicked off my birthday weekend by heading out to dinner at a tasty Portland establishment called Hawthorne Fish House.  They have such wonderfully yummy fried fish, crab cheese soup, fish tacos and more!  I went with the Chile-Fried Catfish and chips.  It was delightfully spicy, crispy, moist, and straight up delicious.

Next up was a Chris Hardwick show at the Helium Comedy Club.  We made it over with time to spare, so you know I had to have a little photo shoot.  Kiyonna sent me this lovely Cayden Cold-Shoulder Top recently.  I just had to rock it for my night out!

This top is fantastic!  It is made with a soft, stretchy fabric that flows nicely.  The cowl neck drapes so beautifully.  I also loved the shirttail hem, which is a different feature from my other Kiyonna items.  I like that it hangs a little bit longer as to conceal my tummy a little bit.  I usually shy away from showing my arms because I am not there yet confidence-wise.  These cutaway sleeves are a perfect way to show some skin, stay cool, but have some coverage.

I decided to pair this top with a fun chevron striped pencil skirt to add some pattern to the ensemble.  The skirt is a ponte knit and super comfortable as well.  I knew we would be walking around a bit in the city, so I wore these great peep toe flats.  They were easy and allowed me to enjoy the night without worrying about falling over in heels or my high wedges. (I am clumsy that way.)

  2. Thank you! I really do love this outfit too. I was unsure about the cut-out sleeves, but I really like them too. I am glad I gave it a go. I've had at least 3 friends of mine tell me this is their favorite outfit on me EVER. That is a big deal because I have a TON of clothes. LOL
