Somewhere Over the Purple Rainbow

Last January, I searched in vain for this gorgeous purple, blue and pink wall located in North Hollywood. (You can read about that saga in my post entitled A Silver Lining to my Wall Woes, and, as you can see, I like to make my wall hunting escapades into epic dramas!) Anyway, after I put on my detective's hat, I eventually realized that this wall was located on the backside of an apartment building, facing a bike path. After the mystery was solved, I decided to make a pilgrimage back there at some point in time. That pilgrimage happened last weekend since we were in the area anyway seeing some friends for lunch.

I decided to keep it casual yet colorful with some fun accents in this outfit. If you read my last post, you'll know that I am dabbling again into the world of earrings, but have found that some are just too heavy for my delicate ear lobes. This pink tassel pair from Sugarfix are the perfect solution to this. They are big enough and bright enough to make a statement, but I could easily wear them all day with no discomfort. As a result, I bought several more pairs in different colors!

Last off all, I am wearing my new embellished "Jackie" cardigan from J. Crew. It seemed like everyone bought this sweater and this is understandable, because it's a fantastic color and most importantly it has sequins. I actually stole the idea of pairing the yellow cardigan with pink tassel earrings from the J. Crew catalog because it seemed like a great idea and it matched the wall!
