Navy and Mint

1

So what do you do when it feels like spring but it actually the middle of February? You dress somewhere in the middle. We have been having 70 + degree days recently, and although I am not going to be breaking out the sandals, I love being able to ditch the tights.

Truth – I have had my eye on this sweater for a really long time. Not just because I love anything navy or mint (and together is perfection) but hello cute little bow!! And another reason it is so very perfect? It is the perfect weight for a winter that feels like spring. It is light weight which makes it ideal for transitioning into spring, and the colors work for any season.

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. How is it Monday already?? Why do the weekends go so fast and the week days go so slow?

Last week’s Tuesday Shoesday included these Kate Spade shoes, and they are my current favorite shoes! What is better than pink patent leather and bows? Not much in my book. Did I mention they are on sale?

So who has big Valentine’s Day plans? We never do anything.  A few years ago, we went out to dinner (not realizing it was Valentine’s Day) and it was a disaster. Last year, the hubs surprised me with tickets to see Billy Joel. We never do gifts, but I was dying to see him. It just so happened that Valentine’s Day was a good excuse to get them.

 

Hope you have a great day!

Winter is Here

Monday, we meet again. Why do the week days take so long to get through and the weekends are gone in like 1 second?

Winter is definitely here in the south. It was so cold this past weekend, and is going to stay cold all this week. Have I mentioned I hate cold weather? If not, I do. I really do.

Enough about the weather though. Can we talk about this insanely adorable Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet? I am super obsessed. I love that it wraps and the pearls (I’m from the South, I am a pearl kind of girl). I am wearing the rose pearls on brown leather. Make sure you go check out all of the amazing Victoria Emerson bracelets. You are going to love them!

Welcome 2016

Happy Monday everyone! I am back after an unexpected hiatus and I’ve got an outfit post! YAY!

Anyone else have the post holiday blues? I was sooo not ready for the weekend to be over. The hubs and I spent had a wonderfully lazy, quiet weekend. We had drinks with a friend and her husband for her birthday on New Year’s Eve and then snuggled in bed and water a movie. On New Year’s day we snuggled in our jammies and watched movies. Saturday we finally saw the last Hunger Games movie (SO GOOD).

Is there anything better than a lazy weekend? I think not.

So it has finally turned cold. I’m not super thrilled about this, since I am not a fan of the cold weather, but I did think 70 degrees on Christmas was a bit much.

2016, I am totally ready for you. Who is with me?

The Nutcracker

Happy Monday all! Hope you had a great weekend!

This past weekend, I got to mark another thing off my 101 Things before I turn 30 list! My mom, grandmother and I went to see The Nutcracker (#86). We used to go every year when I was little. My mom kept telling me she was going to get me a smocked dress to wear.

Luckily, there were no smocked dresses for me. But this is what I did wear. Metallic leopard skirt and lace top was a great combination. Fun, cute, and a little fancy for the matinee. I didn’t think I needed to go too over the top (although don’t think I didn’t consider it!).

As always, the production was amazing. Nothing getting me in the Christmas spirit like seeing the Nutcracker!
