Outfit Obsession // Pleated Skirt

Do you ever have an item of clothing that you’ve been wanting forever, but you weren’t able to find “the one?” Well, that is the story with this pleated skirt. I feel like I have been looking for one for the longest time and finally, finallyyyy I found it. AND it happens to be part of the #nsale. Nordstrom, how I love you so. (There are some sizes still available, scroll to the bottom for direct links!) It feels like kittens are caressing my legs and angels sing when I wear it. Too much? Maybe a slight exaggeration. Only slight. ANYWAY, this skirt is perfect, so flattering and very versatile, and I am so glad I got it!

Unconventional Valentine’s Day Outfit

If I am being completely honest, my husband and I have never been huge Valentine’s Day celebrators. Not that there is anything wrong with the holiday, we just never have gone out of our way to make a big deal out of it. I always see people posting these super cute Valentine’s Day outfit options, but they are totally fancier than I would need. So I decided to do a little dress up with a medium-dressy option, something that would be more suited to what we would do.

 Going with the traditional red, because it is Valentine’s Day after all!

I added a little pop of leopard for some fun!

With all the snow and cold winter temps, pants are really a more viable option in New England in February for me!

I had to include this picture: for those of you who don’t know, we are currently rooming with my parents who have a barn filled with horses. This is Zuko, and yes he is taller than me when he stands up. He protects the horses since my parents live in a more rural area. I had no idea he was behind me until my mom showed me after she took the pictures!

How cute are these shoes? Oh, and another dog photobomb.

My husband got me this pearl necklace for our six year anniversary. I thought it was fitting to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Black pants keep the look a little fancier than wearing just jeans.
