Inauguration Day

Today was a lovely day to celebrate, and that we did. Bobby and I had every intention of making the trip to D.C., but he was unable to secure the time off. I'm sure it would have been near impossible anyway, but the idea was lovely. Instead, we spent the day in high spirits, enjoyed a wonderful lunch at 'Snice and did some grocery shopping. I also grabbed a couple of goodies from Beacon's, with my leftover credit. I got a lovely little vintage, velvet beret and another coat. I'm sure you'll see them both soon.

By the way, if you enjoy vegetarian fare, go to 'Snice and order the Thanksgiving Leftovers sandwich. Best thing, ever. Bobby swears by the Potpie wrap, but while that is also good, it pales in comparison. I think I could eat that every day.

(I later changed belts to the pink one above...sorry this one looks a little ridiculous, outside of the loops like that. I forgot to take another picture after changing.)

My outfit details:
vintage beret - from my mom's store
scarf and coat - h&m
80s dress - thrifted and altered (shortened, taken in, took up the waistline a few inches)
fuchsia tights (they look red here, but they're very pink in real life): Hue - I've had these since high school
belt - from my mom's store
vintage purse - gift from my mom
boots - beacon's closet
obama pin - yayyyyy

His outfit details:
coat - Robert Geller
shirt, shoes and sweater - h&m
tie - I think that was from my mom
jeans - either from Target or 4 Stroke, all of his jeans are from either of the two places. Can you tell I'm winging this one?

Hooray for the USA and our new President!

Love love,

Keiko Lynn

P.S. I was without internet (again) for a few days, and I'm having a heck of a time catching up on emails, comments, etc. I literally have over a thousand emails from when I was gone...I have barely made a dent. That being said, I know a lot of you requested a blog link swap. If you want to swap links, let me know on this post and I will do them all in one shot. Thanks!


  1. i would love to swap links! highlandandponce.blogspot.com

  2. http://nelindapal.blogspot.com/
    Wink wink.
    I want that Veggie food right now. I am hungry yum yum.

  3. I know, I was so excited all day and haven't stepped away from the tv for long intervals... yay for the new President and his beautiful family and oh, it's soooo exciting! :]


  4. I only watched an hour of the inauguration because that's about how long a class of 3rd graders can focus on it. But it was adorable to watch with such a young age group, my favorite part being when they recited oaths along with Biden and Obama.

    Link swap please?

  5. i think your signature look is bright tights and a beret.

    I have a blog on blogspot, but it's really not that interesting.

    OMG. Remember 4 years ago when we decided we were going to have a political website focused on our disapointment with bush being re-elected... how times have changed!! Now we have a GREAT prez.

  6. would love to swap links!


  7. I would enjoy wearing Bobby's teal sweater. Not his specifically, I should add. But it's such a nice color. I'm still waiting Orlando to make good on their promise of building an H&M at the Florida Mall.

    Anyway, I think I recall making some comment about swapping links? I know everyone is asking you, and that's a heck of a lot of html coding and whatnot for you to do. So no obligation!

  8. my blog link is jillianleigh.blogspot.com but i am not as thrilling with my words or images as you.

    p.s., where did you get your tattoo done?

  9. Link swap :)

    I really like that color of Bobby's sweater.

  10. I love those gorgeous lace-up boots! I'd love to switch links:


  11. I love the colors of your outfit. And your boyfriend is so well dressed!

    I would love to swap links!

  12. I love the colour of your tights and bobbies sweater - a bit of brightness is a wonderful thing!

    Would love to swap links - you're already on my bloglist!


  13. Yay let's swap links again! I still have yours on my links page. Although I just peeked and the image is no longer working. Do you have a new banner? I'll nudge it up to the top too. :) You can put my website or my blog page, whichever you prefer. jennyharada.com jennyharada.com/blog

  14. u look lovely, really lovely. i've been enjoying your posts, outfits and makeup details!

  15. I'd love a link exchange!

    Your boy is incredibly stylish. And I wouldn't have even noticed if you hadn't mentioned the belt wasn't through the hoops!

  16. Yes, today was such a great day!

    I've had your website linked from my online shop (ninjavintage.com) for ages, when you did a link swap on LJ. I'd love to do a blog link swap as well. Mine is http://ninjavintage.blogspot.com/

    I really enjoy reading your blog. It's a lot more relatable than most other blogs that I read.

  17. Yay for swapping links!


    Cute outfits on inauguration day, the both of you. :)

  18. What cut of jeans does Bobby usually get when he buys from Target? I told you before I'm trying to "sway" my boyfriend into some different looks. Its not that I am trying to change his style, its just, he doesn't like change much and I want to introduce some different things to him :P I do know he does like Target, but whenenver we go there for jeans they are always of the looser fit. Thanks!

  19. I absolutely love the dress your wearing! :) u always look gorgeous.

    I would love to swap links:

  20. I was overjoyed to watch President Obama being sworn in. He is going to change so much...

    Anyways, you and Bobby look amazing, as usual.

    I would love to swap links!

  21. Oh, that fantastic dress ... amazing with the bright tights.

  22. Oh wow, cutest couple everrrrr. What lovely bright outfits for Inauguration Day.

    And I'd love to swap links with you! You're already in my blogroll, but my blog is



  23. You look lovely! And Bobby's mint cardigan/grey coat/white shirt & tie combo is wonderful too.

    I'd love to swap links if you're offering.

  24. Love the look. I wore red, white and blue even though I watched the inauguration from my couch.
    I love your outfit, especially the tights.

    I would love to do a link swap.


  25. the obama pin is matching your boyfriend's vest! fantastic outfits. (:

  26. I'm a US citizen living in Canada. I've followed everything from Ontario, Canada, and I watched the inauguration yesterday. It was completely fantastic. Whenever I'm next in NY (which is pretty often, I'm from Connecticut so I always pass through NY when I visit), I'll check out snice.

    You guys are freakin adorable. Seriously, you both have a wonderful style. I like when people aren't afraid to experiment with colour. When I do it (all the time haha) people look at me like I'm crazy. People don't seem to really care about fashion in my area.


  27. Keiko!

    You guys are so cute...I'm virtually pinching both your cheeks. :-)

    My boyfriend and I watched the inauguration in Montreal yesterday. Sooo tear-jerking! It was alll over the Canadian news, and everyone was so excited. I never realized how much other countries pay attention to the US. Living in Canada has been an eye opener in that respect...

    Anyway, I love checking your blog...your outfits make me smile :-)

  28. Oh!! i love your boyfriend's outfit! yours is fantastic as well, and really colourfull!
    I enjoy how you mix different things and finally you dress in a fantastic and original way!

  29. Hi Keiko!

    I found you through Fruchtzwerg's Island and I adore your outfits and your friendly spirit. Would love to swap links with you :)


  30. Love the pink and red mix here, I wish I could get my man to pose for outfit photos!! ;-)

  31. I am so jealous of all the awesome stuff from your mom!

    ooh, I'd love to swap links, in fact, I'll put you up right now!

  32. Your outfit is so cute! I love Bobby's cargian ensemble, too. I'll have to work on finding a nice fitting cardiagn for my boy too!

    & I'd love to swap links with you! http://elementnineteen.wordpress.com

  33. I would love to swap links :)


    I love that Bobby wears bright colours, it's fantastic. And unusual in a man, I think - although perhaps that's just New Zealand!

  34. Yes I was one of those who had asked for swapping links. I linked you already at
    I'd still be very happy if you could link me back.
    Thanks for your inspiring work!

  35. I'm a new reader to your site and am really enjoying your outfits :) I would love to swap links.

  36. I'm really quite late, but I'd love to swap links with you :)

    Your blog is gorgeous - and I love seeing how you alter your clothes!

  37. I love your style- the colours, the cuteness, everything!
