In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd throw in some pinks and reds to an otherwise neutral-heavy look. This is about as girly as it gets for me most days (though, my new favorite pink pencil skirt would beg to differ). I love the simplicity of layered shirts, and the pops of red were just right. My hair, on the other hand? Well, let's just say I've learned a lesson in hair hubris -- don't publicly proclaim you've found the perfect solution to taming your unruly mane; you're just asking for a bad hair day. 

PS. Signs for reserved parking or instructing me to not block a fire door? Apparently, I'm all for ignoring them when blogging is at stake. 

PPS. I thoroughly recommend you watch this animated short, "The First Valentimes Day... That I Don't Believe!" from the folks at Written By A Kid. It makes me cackle each time.


  1. love how you layered this outfit up and added a pop of color with the heels! *quite lovely* thanks for stopping by...happy valentine's day;)


  2. You block that fire door! You look lovely.

    1. Hah! Thanks Terri -- if anyone would understand my sass, I feel like it would have to be YOU, the creator of Stylish Sass!

  3. I love this look! I'm a neutrals girl {even though I put way too much color in my's kind of psyching me out every time I get dressed in the morning}, so naturally, I'm drawn to more neutral pallets. But, I love the pop of color with the heels and the necklace.

    Oh, and I think I'm in need of some much better thrift stores here in Texas, you find so many fabulous things!


    1. Thanks, Kristina -- I also put a ton of color in my 30x30 in the hopes that it would make me come up with creative color pairings... but I tend to just fall back on neutrals. Oops!

      As for thrifting, I'm planning a how-to post to be published soon -- I bet you can find great things in Texas!

  4. This is such a cute outfit! I love the polka dots peeking out, and that clutch is awesome :)

  5. Lovin that little polka dot shirt! I bet you can style it so many adorable ways!

    Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

    Blessings and peace!

  6. Great Valentine's day look!! I love the little hints of red you included and the polka dot pretty! xo
