Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today I decided to dress up a bit more than usual since I’m going out to a movie after work with my hubby.  I paired this stretchy red pencil skirt with a black heart print blouse and a pair of adorable scotty dog shoes.  I’ve had these shoes for years but never had a chance to wear them until now.

And here are a few other outfits I put together this week.

Boden bird sweaterThis is a sweater and skirt I got from Boden and had been waiting for an opportunity to wear.  The skirt is my favorite color and I love the fit and pattern of the sweater.

Heritage Sweater – Boden $76.80

Wool Skater Skirt – Boden $70.80

stitch fix wrap topThis is a wrap top I got in my last stitch fix, and I’m wearing it with a necklace I made from “For the Makers”.  The top was an interesting piece and I’m glad it made it into my last fix.


Two Days of Outfits

I’m getting worse about remembering to take pictures.  This week I only remembered twice.  Here are two of the outfits I wore this week:

Grey ruffle front tank and navy cardigan

grey blouse Loft

Grey ruffle tank – Loft $39.99 (can get 40% off right now)


Military inspired top and riding boots

Army blouse and jeans

Aviero Safari Shirt – Anthropologie $19.95 on sale

Boots Bandolino Calliope – DSW $99.95

Navy Dress and Tights

Today I broke out the tights for the first time this season and wore a new dress from Target paired with my jean jacket and some new diamond print tights from Old Navy.  I love these boots because they keep my legs nice and warm.  The dress is awesome because it has pockets and long sleeves if I take the jacket off.

The Look:

Dress – Merona from Target $29.99

Tights – Old Navy $11.95 (On Sale right now)

Mustard Jeans

Keeping with my mustard theme, my quest for mustard jeans has finally come to an end.  I’m not super thrilled with the fabric of these (a little too polyester feeling) but they fit okay in the waist and the color is pretty nice.  They are a brand I’ve never heard of, but I found them online when searching for mustard skinny jeans.  I paired them with a top and necklace from stitch fix.  I have to wear them with boots since they are boot-cut and long, which I don’t love since I like flats better, but still glad I was able to find them.

Sunny End to the Week

It looks like we may have one more day of sun before the clouds and gloom take over again for the next 9 months or so.  At least that’s what the weather forecasters say, so far I only see clouds and grey.  Living in the Pacific Northwest feels a little bit like living in the Game of Thrones landscape where we all dread the coming dark season.  “The Winter is Coming…”

I was able to get one last sunny outfit in last week with this mustard colored skirt from ModCloth and an older embellished Tee from JCrew and cardigan.
