Yumi Kim for the win! And with a word like “Yumi,” you know it’s going to be good! This is a favorite brand of mine that I often forget about. I was super tickled when a local influencer friend of mine, shared on Instagram, that one of my favorite Yumi Kim styles was on major sale for the holidays. Mr. Nine was so sweet and gracious to get it for me and I knew the minute I saw it, that I would wear it to our annual family steak dinner this past Friday!

I think a high neck is again, so classy and I love the ruching at the top. The slight balloon sleeves and tier at the bottom add more sweet femininity. The pattern with blush, mahogany and a lil blue, white & green on the matte black makes for the most beautiful floral pattern! AND THIS DRESS is 50% off right now!

I knew I would want fairly simple accessories but I wanted to add a little bling with the coin belt and some blush statement earrings. A plain pair of tights is always best with a floral and I added my beloved sock booties.

I don’t know about where you’re at, but in my neck of the woods, the weather sucks for trying to get pictures for the blog. It was a rainy, dreary and dark night when we attempted these, thank goodness for the front porch and a flash. I’m also a little sad because now it’s back to the tripod by myself since my photographer sons have headed back to school. my phone camera isn’t working right either so I am waiting on Mr. Nine to upgrade me, LOL! Continual challenges that make me ask myself why am I still blogging? All in good fun I suppose.


My favorite from last week’s link up was
Debbie with her pink satin skirt..such a soft look!

  3. So I had never heard of Yumi Kim until Brighton posted her pj's at her bachelorette party this past I'm obsessed! The struggle has been SO real for me and pictures. Between the short days and dreary weather it's been tough. Have a super Wednesday sweet friend.

  4. What a fabulous dress! I love the cute and the belt you put with it is perfect. I hear you on the weather, I am over the gray and blah. Bring on spring!

  5. Your dress is darling on you, Andrea. You really rock it. Have a wonderful week.

  6. I honestly don't know if there's a look you CAN'T pull off my friend. This is stunning. I don't do the high necks very well but I may be forced to try again if my neck keeps giving away my age. haha

  7. Gorgeous. I love your tights too- so shimmery- where did you get them?

  8. So cute, perfect for a nice dinner out. I wish I could wear high collared things, although then I would buy too many more things, haha!

  9. The weather is really making it hard lately! I know winter just started but I'm so ready for spring! That dress is gorgeous on you! Love the added bling with the coin belt!

  11. I think I have only been to Ruth's Chris once, one our 3rd anniversary. But I do love a good steak. My favorite is when hubby grills them at home.

  12. What a gorgeous dress on you!! I think you look HOT for a date night with Mr. Nine! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  13. You look FABULOUS in your Yumi Kim dress. And I'm sure Mr. Nine was pleased with his purchase too! ;) Oh the struggles of getting good blog photos. That's still the most challenging thing for me after all these years.

  14. Really gorgeous! Yumi Kim is such a great brand and this dress looks too fabulous on you! Perfect for a winter event too!

  15. One of my favorite brands who does floral better than anyone! You look adorable in this, good job Mr. Nine!

  16. This is most certainly a fab dress, Andrea! And it shows off your amazing legs! I love this look head to toe. I am becoming quite adept at the whole tripod and remote picture taking thing. It’s a pain but it’s what we need to do, I suppose. All in good fun, for sure!


  17. OMG how adorable are you! You are rocking this look so well and showing off those great legs! Hope you get a new phone soon, I hate when mine is acting up like that.

  18. Gorgeous! wow. Love the mini dress tyle with the higher collar and the colors of the print are so lovely! I know what you mean about the weather, it has been dreary and rainy here since Sunday!
