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!!!

Jessica London Style Swap

One of my favorite things about social media is how it has become this wonderful shared collective space. When it comes to fashion I love styling outfits and mixing up items in my closet but I also love seeing how other people style the pieces I have and I am always getting style inspiration from others.
In that spirit this month I teamed up with Lexi Nimmo to share some of our favorite pieces for fall from Jessica London. Lexi and I recently discovered that we have the same taste in clothing and tend to pick a lot of the same pieces so we thought it would be fun to team up and style some of the same items on purpose for once. We each picked two items so we could have four looks each to share. 
Lexi picked a leather moto jacket and sleeveless mock neck sweater. I decided to get the jacket in blue instead of the traditional black because I wear a lot of blue as is so I knew it would go with a lot of things in my closet. For the mock neck sweater I went with a cream color because I’ve …

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …
