V-Day Flowers, No Red

Hey guys!  As I'm typing, my little ASOS 14 dolla red dress has not arrived.  It could get here today, but I may have changed my mind on what to wear for a night out today.  Me and the hubs, are keeping it fairly casual today and I'm not sure if I'd be up for wearing a dress anyway.  BUT, I am still keeping it edgy.

As you already know, the Peter Pilotto for Target line just came out the other day.  I have to be honest, I had no idea who Peter Pilotto was, so I had no big excitement for it. Since, I'd happened to be in Target a couple days after it launched, I decided to take a peek.  It was pretty picked over as far as sizes.  Everything smaller than a size 8 was GONE in about 90% of the stuff, so there wasn't much for me to choose from.   I decided to pick up this lil floral top, just because.  I mean hey, I do want to be taken fairly seriously as a fashion blogger I think. Thought I was more "lifestyle".

I paired the top with these faux leather pants from H&M, that I've been obsessed with since I've gotten them, and over-the-knee suede boots.

So, unless that red dress gets here and blows me away....this will be my V-day getup. 

Hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day, and get a little *extra* love from someone special!

Taupe is sort of a "somber" color.  It's unassuming and quiet. Kind of like my mood today, go figure.  It's also pretty classy.  It can make even a stand-out print like snake print seem demure.  

I got these jeans (though they feel more like pants) on sale from Old Navy for 17 bucks.  Here, they fit right in with fall/winter wear, but I also like that these will also fall right in line with my spring/summer wardrobe with ease, as well.  I'm all for versatility!  I topped it all off with this "floppy" hat I'd bought from Target weeks ago.  I'm just wearing it now because it doesn't fit my head when my hair is curly.  #BigHairProblems

Now back to that mood, I'd mentioned above... 

^^^This, my friends, is the face of a disappointed woman.  We thought we'd found "our" house.  Unfortunately, someone else found the same house a few hours before we did.  What a bummer.  We did have a "second place" house, but in reality--who really wants second place?  So we passed on putting an offer on that one.  We instead want to find another #1 (to us) house!  So the cycle starts all over again.  At least now we have an idea of exactly what we're looking for.  New listings are always added to the market daily, and we're on a mad scramble.  Wish us luck....again.  

Happy Hump Day!

Navy + Red + Sea Horses

As you all know, I've never met a print I was afraid of.  I adore the little "animal prints (literally)" even more.  Heck, you've seen me wearing horses, crabs, and now one of my personal favorites--sea horses!  I walked past this dress in Target, and I had to have it.  I love the juxtaposition of the somewhat sophisticated styling with such a whimsical print.  The slight high-low hem, didn't hurt either.

If you haven't tried wearing one of these zany prints, I suggest you do.  Be prepared to say a lot of thank you's for all of the compliments you'll get!



P.S.  If you are in the Atlanta area, be sure to check out the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival parade and festival on Saturday.  It will be tons o' fun!
