Monday Blues Pinks

Of course, I had to kick off the Valentine’s week with a festive outfit post!! This amazing pink coat was the perfect thing to do the trick! Now, I’m normally not so much of a pink kinda gal, especially this bubblegum pink, but when I spotted this beauty at Sam’s Closet Boutique, I knew I had to have it. It’s good to step outside of your comfort zone every once in a while, right? This coat has not disappointed!! I love how I can throw it on over any simple outfit and instantly it pulls the look together, which is exactly what I did. The pink is here to stay, and not just for this week!!

I couldn’t just have a statement coat with a boring outfit underneath!! Incoming to these statement cheetah print booties!! I had been eyeing these bad boys since fall, but never made the move. Then, I found them on sale in an after Christmas sale at II Brunettes and finally scooped them up. They’re really the perfect bootie! A. because cheetah/leopard is practically a neutral and can be worn with just about any color B. the pointy toe and calf hair makes them easy to dress up and finally, C. because they’re a wedge making them super comfy!! I’ve even got plans to wear them with jean shorts and a red peasant top in the warmer months!

My final statement piece of this look is my new blue Céline bag!! Thinking I’m crazy right about now for spending that much on a not so practical bag? I would normally NEVER do that, but I got this one at a STEAL from Saks off Fifth! It was already a quarter of the original price, then an additional 20% off and then I negotiated my way into another 15% so this was a legit deal!! It was just so so so beautiful, I couldn’t pass it up!! I’ve been kind of obsessed with that royal/cobalt blue color lately and love mixing it with other colors. Pink is a great one, but marsala/burgundy is also a great combo. Anyways, it was my one chance to buy a fun bag for a mere fraction of the normal price! I highly recommend going to check out your local outlet stores every once in a while. Often, you can negotiate a lower price on the pricier items that have been there a while!

Also, can we talk about how great this last shot is?! I’m obsessed and it’s very rare that I’m obsessed with a picture with me in it! I can thank the awesome ladies behind Amore Photography, Shauntae and Laura, for these fab pics! Bloggers, whether local or not, if you’re in Charleston and need some blog pictures done, these girls run an awesome special!! It’s such a steal and they’re so much fun to work with!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!! I’m headed out to NYC today for Fashion Week!! I could not be more ecstatic (minus those freezing temps). Be sure to follow me on social media to keep up with all of my New York adventures.

This just might be the world’s most versatile dress! The black & white print is perfect to pair with virtually any color. I particularly like it with neons that really pop. It can be easily dressed up with strappy heels and a statement necklace or worn as casually as a bathing suit coverup with flip flops. I styled it right down the middle as a casual, but chic look. This outfit can be worn to the office, date night or for me, breakfast with the hubby and errand running. While my color pairing options were endless with this dress, I decided to go with this bauble necklace that brings several bright colors into the mix. This necklace is one of my go-to’s and even though it has coral, lime and aqua it is surprisingly easy to coordinate with many outfits. My new aqua and coral flats went perfectly with the necklace and the style was great for this dress. I love a good shift dress and a pair of flats! Since this dress has a bit of the “mod” 1960’s vibe to it with the cut and the print, I took the chance to wear my black cat eye sunnies! These made the outfit even more fun to wear! This getup is something that you can wear and not only feel super cute and put together, but also very comfortable which are the two main factors in creating a confidently dressed you!
