Valentines Day – a bit late

Valentine’s Day happens to be one of my favorite “holidays”; and I say “holiday” because we all know that it has become be to known as a corporate holiday. I knew that this year I wanted to wear a red dress so I searched the internet for the perfect red dress. I like the dresses that H&M had to offer so I went to the store and tried on every single red dress they had in store. After I spent about 40 minutes in the fitting room I had narrowed it down to this red ( the one shown) dress or this one. I loved how red flared dress looked on the rack but when I put it on….OH NO! The dress looked horrible and let’s just say the sizing was WAAAAYYYY off.

The Details

Once I selected my dress I knew that I wanted to wear pink accessories. I bought these amazing pink shoes from Poshmark ( an app that lets you sell your clothes!) and I matched it with this gorgeous clutch I bought at goodwill for $2.50. I was really going for the sweet romantic look and I think I nailed it. The weather that night was unseasonable cold so I was able to show off my wonderful beige ( $1.00) coat.

Happy Fashion.

Easy Sunday

Sunday, the day that we should take time off from our busy schedules and rest. For me, it was an easy going morning and afternoon. I went to a Seafood Festival where the food was YUUUUMMMM ! Of course if you grow up you on the coast or in an island, you either  learn to love or loath seafood. In my case, I love seafood! I can’t get enough of it. The boyfriend and I had an easy afternoon of walking, snapping pics and eating. Now, it’s time for reality and homework it is. I have two semesters to go before graduation and plan on passing every single class left in my curriculum. I am ready lord!

This is an easy outfit, not much that I did to make it stand out as the color is a stand out all on its own. I paired it with strappy, beige/off white ruffled sandals (BTW thrifted brand new with tags at Goodwill for $5.00!) and a vintage cross body ( not shown) Dooney & Bourke bag. I kept my face bare with a bit of gloss and natural eyeshadow.

Hope you all had a fantastic Sunday.
