my everyday style: connect the dots!

I love a good wardrobe work horse.  This top is JUST that.  I wore it out for New Years Eve with friends, I wore it layered with a faux fur vest for a cold winter day and I recently wore it again on a warm-ish winter day with flats and a jacket.  It's so comfortable and cute and can really be worn so many different ways.   And what better to pair it with than more spots!  This leopard clutch was a fun addition to the look.   Most winter days in Michigan are just NOT good for flats... so when I find a day that is, you better believe I jump on it.  It's about this time of year that I am SO over boots (however cute and warm they may be).

my everyday style: will you accept this rose?

Have I mentioned that Valentine's is my ALL.TIME.FAVORITE holiday? I really, really love it.  As a kid my mom always did sweet little things for us and as a mom I love to spoil my kids for V-day too. In the past we have done heart shaped pizzas (both homemade or from the local pizza place) which is always a hit or dinner out as a family, I always like to stock the house with some sweets (even though they already get a ton at school) and maybe a few other fun surprises too... this year I am going to try these piñata cupcakes.  How cute are they?

I never put much emphasis on having a significant other for Valentine's though.  Sure I love to celebrate with my husband... but I never once had a boyfriend or a significant other for Valentines until I met him.  And we met late February for the first time... so even then we were nearly a year deep in the relationship before we had our first V-Day together.  I think if you want roses and chocolates and maybe a sweet splurge gift... just do it for yourself.  Of course I love when my husband surprises me on Valentines with a sweet gift or bringing home flowers. But I'm pretty good at spoiling myself too... and I don't think there is anything wrong with that. So you go on girl... pick up those flowers for yourself and order that little something you've had your eye on... you deserve it!

If you need any ideas (wink, wink) you should definitely splurge on this cozy chenille cardigan (looks like the pink is out of stock, but check back for restocks) or velvet sneakers (so comfy!).  And every time I wear this darling "lashes" tee I get so many compliments on it.  It's perfect for under a blazer or cardigan this time of year and you can bet I will be wearing it all spring and summer too.
