Today's Look

Shirt: JCrew; Jacket: Rachel Roy for Macys; Belt: JCrew; Shoes: Target; Lipstick: Maybelline Coral Crush; Clutch: Francesca's Collections; Necklace: c/o Rasbarri
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day, sans Valentine or with Valentine.  Husband and I have been going, going going, non-stop...that all we wanted to do was have a night in.  He grilled steaks, I baked these brownies, and we ate in front of the t.v., watching the news.  So romantical, I know, but we're totally content with being an old married couple.
On another note, I love when I shop at Forever21 and come across unique pieces, such as this skirt.  I wasn't in the mood to buy it when I found it, but immediately saw it's potential and knew exactly how I could wear it.  This is my fire-y take on the skirt, pairing it with a bold color, and juxtaposing the dainty pleats against a black leather jacket.  When I remix it, I will go for a more subtle look, playing with soft pastels.

Can't believe this gorgeous pleated skirt is from F21! You look lovely and your VDay sounds much like me and my fiance's--very low key. Just how we like it. Take care!

This outfit totally has me wanting to move to Arizona! I don't know why but just looking at it takes me back to visiting my grandparents in Mesa, and the scent of the orange tree in their yard. I have the BEST memories of visiting them! We always went in March, and it was always SO warm! Craving that now....
It's so funny how seeing something as simple as an outfit can spark so many memories!

Holy DYNA!!! BFF....I can't get over how much I love this outfit and just how great you look in it! I will be running into my Forever21 store and purchasing it. Then copying your exact look. Minus the leather, only because I don't have a leather jacket.....although that is on my list too......
Lady, you did it again. And not the 2008-2010 Britney Spears way {you know what I mean?}

Don't forget the skirt from F21! I'm a sales associate for the only one in North Dakota, so since I'm around the clothes ALL the time I know an item when I see one. Super cute combination. LOVE the striped clutch. Happy happy Thursday!

The hottest topic on the internet comes how to buy Runescape Gold for Sale with safe and fast delivery. Some people once tried to farm the gold by themselves but gave up at last, because it costs a lot of time and energy. In such case, the most suitable way is just to choose a desirable website. People can buy cheap WOW Gold for Sale in many websites now.

ECoop said...

Ok Love, Love, Love this skirt but I have a question... Got on the website to order it and noticed that several reviews stated how short the lining was for the top layer to be sheer. Do you think it would be a problem as a work skirt? I'm 5'6 FYI Would love to know your thoughts. :) May just order it anyway. :)

Jessica said...

That skirt is from FOREVER 21!!! I love it, that is crazy! you look adorable, so glad I found your blog :)
