Valentine Outfit Inspo

OMG Valentine's Day is this week! That just kinda snuck up on me. Thank goodness my hubby made a reservation weeks ago, now I need to just figure out what to wear.
 
When I originally shot some Valentine looks I picked two tops that I thought were appropriate and mixed them with a few different skirts to show how you can get different looks mixing and matching.
 
 
First I wanted to mix red and pink but do so in a sophisticated manner without looking childish - I think by wearing something that just has accents of pink instead of a full on pink top it works, plus an off the shoulder look makes the outfit more sexy and mature instead of sweet.
 
 
But, I also did want to show this top in a more romantic way and I think the soft pink and soft velvet material of the skirt gives that look.  
 
 
Next I mixed red and pink again and although I was worried how two solid colored pieces would look I think the deep red really compliments the blush of the pink well, plus I love the mixing of luxe fabrics here - lace and velvet.
 
 
I know the red lace top would be way to much with the red skirt so I decided to bring in a different type of rose coloring- this time in a rose gold skirt and again I think the colors play nicely with each other.
Unfortunately since I purchased the floral top months ago I can't find it for sale anywhere but the lace top is still available and it comes in black as well. I did find some similar off the shoulder floral tops and truth be told I like some of them even better than mine.          


If you don't want to wear red and pink at all but still want to dress a little extra special I wore this green top and rose gold skirt for a recent date night and I'm still obsessing over how much I love the colors together. Both the top and skirt are from Society+ and you can save 10% if you use my code: Mandysue
 
 
Finally, even though my hair looks terrible I had to add this last look just because I think it's so pretty and feminine and fun. I also got more compliments from stranger in this outfit than I ever have. The top is included in the tops above and the tutu is from Society+ . . . I'll actually be posting a review of their tut skirts next week but I did want to share this look now so you have time to order before Valentine's day.
 
Whether you'll be celebrating the day with your sweet heart or galantine you're sure to look fab in any of these looks. I'd love to know what you wind up wearing - tag me if you wear anything inspired by the looks I shared here. I think I'm going to have to post on my stories asking for opinion because honestly I just can't decide which outfit to wear.
 

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY Y'ALL!!!

The Journey

Last week I had the best of intentions of staying active on social media - I was going to post everyday and make all sort of sweet and supportive comments on other peoples pictures and be inspired and inspired others. Instead I wound up facing terrible wifi and screaming at my phone until an unrelated incident made me too sick to care. And while I could have done without the getting sick part and I'm being punished by the instagram algorithm gods this week with super low visibility on my posts but I can't help but feel like for me as a person a week to disconnect was just what I needed and it ended too soon. I don't feel like I need ongoing treatment or therapy but from time to time I fall into a funk and lately that's where I've been - hanging out in a pit of not enough-ness. As a plus size woman society is always going to tell me I'm not pretty enough , thin enough, or healthy enough and for the most part that really doesn't bother me because I feel lik…

$40 Date - Sushi Jimmi

For the longest time in Memphis some of the best sushi in town came from a gas station. Everyone from Memphis reading this is now nodding and smiling and everyone out of town now has now scrunched up their face and is saying "eww". But seriously, "Sushi Jimmi" has been making sushi daily and delivering it to be sold in the little pre-packed containers for years and it is so good. Luckily for Memphians we can now get this delicious sushi fresh and it's a prefect place for a casual date night. Sushi Jimmi is not a fancy or hip décor filled sushi joint - it's in an old Wendy's. But it's clean, convenient and most of all -cheap! Here's the menu: The sushi rolls are very generous! We are able to go and split the crawfish nachos and one sushi roll so with tax and tip we can get out on $30.
The Godzilla Roll
Spicy Crawfish Nachos The food comes out pretty quickly so we're usually in and out in an hour leaving us time to catch a movie at the $3 …

Social Media and Spending (Is your favorite blogger a Carrie or a Miranda)

Everyone here is old enough to remember Sex and the City right? I feel like it's mainstream in our pop culture enough that I'm not dating myself too much with my title reference but if you're confused trust me, it will all make sense by the end of this post. One thing I always hesitate to write about is finances, but the reality is its something I personally focus heavily on and so if I'm going to be authentic here (which is my always my goal of course) its really a topic I can't ignore. And I know there's some fellow bloggers reading this now thinking oh girl, no - talking money is no ones business but hear me out - fashion and lifestyle bloggers pretty much tell people what to do with their money with EVERY SINGLE POST so while I'm not saying ever blogger should have to share a screen shot of their bank statement I am pointing out that how one spends their money is highly personal indeed so if bloggers are going to talk buy this, oh girl it's so wor…

Shop Memphis - Saddle Creek

In my house April kicks off gift season - there's my MIL's birthday and hubby's birthday in April, Mother's Day and my Dad's birthday in May, Father's Day in June and then finally after all that shopping for other people my birthday is in July. Between working full time and blogging on the weekends the last thing I need when looking for the perfect gift is to run all over town so I really like going to The Shops Saddle Creek in Germantown - it doesn't hurt that they have lots of stores I like too. Saddle Creek is somewhere I've been shopping since high school and the collection of stores seems to only get better with time. vomFASS is a really fun and unique store, walking past in the past I thought it was simply and olive oli and vinegar store but there's so much more - wines, liqueurs , whiskey, and beauty products  oh my! Also, everything is available to be sampled in store so you know exactly what you're getting before you buy. Oh, when I sa…

Mommy Lhey Little Bits May 2017

I debated posting a review of this month because they were a few issues with the May Little Bits box but I think part of the reason blogger reviews are more trusted than a product advertisement is because they are authentic - at least they are supposed to be. To me it's completely unrealistic that every subscriber is going to love every single item in a subscription so when a review is just constant swooning it seems well,. super fake to me, - and I never want to be like that. The May box arrived in June due to a delay in shipping the notebook - Mommy Lhey was incredibly transparent about the process and provided multiple updates. Hey , stuff happens and at the end of the day it's just stationary items and I think Mommy Lhey handled the process completely professionally and I have no complaints. I was very excited on Monday when I received the box to dig in and see all the goodies:   The contents of the May box with two items missing - I will address that at the end of this …
