PEEK-A-BOO / Uniqlo x LuluGuinness tee with blazer and leather shorts

This whimsical tee is one of my very first Uniqlo items!  Walking down Powell from Westfield Shopping Center to Union Square, I walked past the Uniqlo store and had to do a double-take because of the darling Laduree x Uniqlo window display they had showcasing some of the charity tees.  I can never resist sweets and the macaron-printed tees lured me right into the store. I didn't end up getting that patterned tee (though I did get a couple others from that collaboration) but I did disccover the second collection of Lulu Guinness x Uniqlo!

Falling in love with Lulu's signature doll eyes combined with the "hair" and the little bow, I knew this would fit right into my small collection of graphic tees.  In addition to the signature eyes, the color palette of red, white, and black is also classic Lulu so I wanted to keep that color palette for the entire outfit.  I am loving the red loose crepe blazer (last worn here) worn with a tee, gives it a bit of casual-polished look!

Goldenbleu clutch (Very similar alternative and LOVE this play on CL's Pigalle pumps) / Talbots and VITA bracelets
Prabal Gurung for Target sandals (similar, thicker strap alternative for under $80, and just for fun because one can dream)

As mentioned, my mom's birthday was yesterday and coincidentally we had the day off so we spent a majority of the day eating, resting, and eating some more.  I made mom a photobook filled with pics of her over the past year and the laughter that ensued from both mom and sis was priceless... and caught on camera!  This was one of those "it's the thought that counts" moment =*).

It is back to work for most of us today, I hope everyone had a very enjoyable Memorial Day and have a good week!
