Outfit Inspiration – my Memorial Day x

Posted on: May 26, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

I know my readers especially love an outfit post from YummoMummo. And I love doing them! So this post is about what I wore to celebrate Memorial Day this weekend, as I gathered with some good friends and we took advantage of the end of crab season. As the fashion saying goes, “Never wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day”, so I’ve pulled out my white jacket to tie this outfit together. (Just for the record, I don’t believe that saying. I think you should wear white anytime you fashionably want!)

I know exactly what you are thinking! Why wear a white jacket when I am going to be cracking crabs? I say why not! The printed tee is just plain fun, something everyone needs in their wardrobe. “Clothes Before Bros”. Word.
Paired with my velvet NYDJ leggings makes this outfit comfort plus, and everyone needs an elastic waistband when they are going to an eating fest.

These shoes are incredibly comfortable. They have ‘comfort flex’ so I can wear a bit of height and feel uber comfortable. Especially great for broad feet like mine. I am always surprised how much a printed shoe can be pulled into an outfit. A different take on the simple black shoe I could of used. Shoes (current)/Payless Shoesource

 The Voyager Cuff Anchor bracelet from Stella and Dot (current), ties in great with a nautical themed evening. Stacked with my chunky gold bracelet (Christmas present years ago).

Our chefs for the night. Juyi Spivak and Christopher. Juyi is the brainchild behind Jalan Spice. She is taking her Singapore heritage and teaching others how to make fabulous Singapore dishes in their own kitchen. On the menu that night was Black Pepper Crab and Chilli Crab. I took her class on Laksa, and she really took us behind the scenes of the ingredients. A truly talented chef and her food is amazing! Available for parties. Find Juyi at her Jalan Spice blog or follow her on Instagram.
On another note, I lived in Singapore for 6 years so chili/black pepper crab was a recurring event on a Friday night. Such good memories.

 We were very blessed. Our hosts shared with us this 22 year old bottle of Dom Perignon. It was perfection!

So that’s all folks. How did you spend your Memorial Day?

  2. Such a cute outfit, the jacket adds the class/businessy-ness to it but it's bit casual at the same time!
