February 2017 Pinspired

For this month’s Pinspired, I thought I would create a fun Valentine’s Day look. The outfit below really stood out to me. I enjoy having pops of color mixed with neutrals for a fun and sexy Valentine’s Day look.


To get started, I LOVE this Off-The-Shoulder Jersey Dress from Ralph Lauren. You can find it here ($74.99) and here in more sizes in the Petite ($74.99).

I adore anything from Badgley Mischka and this Jenna Snap Back Cocoon Coat ($279.90) is no different.

To top off the look, these BCBGeneration Pretia Pumps ($49.95) are just icing on the cake.

All of these items together would make you the star of Valentine’s Dinner if you’re having one. I would love to see some looks in the comments below that you want me to tackle for the next Pinspired.

Also, let me know if you end up trying this month’s Pinspired look!

Five on Friday: Valentine’s Day Favorites

I’m really looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year. It probably didn’t hurt that John recently returned from a two-week business trip. You know that they say, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” I thought I would share some of my Valentine’s Day favorites for today’s post:

1. XO Metallic Journal ($20)

I use these types of notepads all the time at work and I thought this was a cute little nod to the season.

2. L. Mawby Sex ($15)

This is one of my favorite sparkling wines. It is Michigan made and the perfect beverage for Valentine’s Day.


3. Bombshell Heart Eau de Parfum ($30)

This reminded me of these little heart necklaces filled with bubbles that I used to have as a child. I loved the whimsical look.


4. Marc Jacobs Embossed Heart Leather Card Case ($95)

My mom always used to get my sister and I little Valentine’s gifts and this reminded me of something cute and fun that she might have given us.

5. Love Candle ($22.50)

I love me a candle, and this Valentine’s themed one smells like spring cherry blossoms, fresh strawberries and sweet tonka. I had to look up what tonka was…apparently it is a scented bean used in a lot of fragrances.

These are just a few fun things to get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day this year. Have you seen anything fun to help celebrate?

5 on Friday: Valentine’s Gift Guide Edition

It’s time for another edition of Five on Friday with A Liz AdventuresThe Good Life BlogHello Happiness and Carolina Charm.


John and I don’t usually exchange gifts for Valentine’s Day, but I thought it would be fun to put together a little gift guide. Here are some of my favorite Valentine’s Day gifts.

1. Lia Sophia LoveFest Earrings ($38)

US Weekly just posted this article about Nikki Reed’s Love earrings from Lia Sophia for only $38. I thought these would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. For a bonus, I think someone I know is having a Lia Sophia party soon, so I can make sure to get this order in.


2. Love Bracelet ($24.95)

I purchased this at The Limited a few months ago and love wearing it. It would make a cute Valentine’s Day gift.


3. Kate Spade Je Ne Sais Quoi iPhone Case ($40)

I thought this was an adorable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It changes pictures based on your view.

4. Kate Spade “Mrs” Necklace ($78)

I’ve eyed this ever since John and I got married. Just a cute reminder that I am married to my prince charming.

5. Tiffany I Love You Ring ($125)

I saved the best for last! This delicate ring would make a great token of your affection. I feel like this isn’t one you can buy for yourself, it is so much better if someone else gets it for you.


What’s on your Valentine’s Day wish list?

February Pinspired

Its time for another Pinspired with Shay at MixandMatchMama, Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To and Mel at The Larson Lingo. This is a fun challenge to recreate a look from Pinterest.

I’ve know what my Pinspired look for February was going to be ever since I saw this amazing look from Erin at Living in Yellow on Pinterest. I thought this would make the perfect Valentine’s Date outfit, because when else can you wear white?

February Pinspired

What first caught my eye was the shoes (My foot was still healing at this point so I was having heel envy). Who knew they were Mossimo from Target! Super cute, but sold out in red- but that didn’t stop me. You can still get them in different colors at Target, here for about $20. I hunted them down on eBay and you can too, just click here. I found one pair in a 7 here, but you just have to keep checking back until they have your size. I may get the other colors too.


I found two white dresses that I liked at Nordstrom. The first one is an Ellen Tracy Pleated Waist Sheath Dress ($108):

The second one is a Tahari Chain Detail Peplum Sheath Dress ($138):


With the first dress it might be fun to dress it up with this Ily Couture red bubble necklace ($49):

How else would you accessorize this look?

5 on Friday: Cute Butt Edition

It’s time for another edition of Five on Friday with A Liz AdventuresThe Good Life BlogHello Happiness and Carolina Charm.


I haven’t posted much this week because school is back in session and I have been adjusting to my new teaching schedule. Juggling work, teaching and blogging along with my home life is a delicate balance 🙂

1. Row House 14 Valentine’s Day Cards

I saw these adorable cards and had to snatch them up for my husband. The sayings are totally something I would say to him. These two are my favorite:

2. Paris Themed Toms

I saw these on Pinterest the other day, then when I went back to find them the pin didn’t connect, so I had to hunt them down myself. They are so cute!

3. Wedding Cake Ornament

Another great Pinterest find. You send pictures of your wedding cake to Aberrant Ornaments and they turn it into an ornament! How darling! I can’t wait to get this done for our cake!
OrnamentHere is a picture of our wedding cake – it would look so cute as an ornament. I wonder if we could even get it to light up!

4. Xhilaration Sequin Skirt ($29.99)

This skirt is a great Target find. I think it would be great for a night out or Valentine’s Dinner with the hubby.
