Happy Valentine’s Day.

I don’t know about you, but, I love Valentine’s day!! I know I don’t need a day to tell those closest to me I love them or to show them that I care. But there is something awfully adorable and heart catching about this silly little holiday! The [extra] love in the air, the roses everywhere! It’s the flowers, hearts, cards, and smiling faces! I enjoy seeing everybody wearing pink and red. Couples everywhere and special gestures. Have you ever heard the saying, “there is power in numbers?” Maybe that’s what it is about Valentine’s day. Sure you love your family, friends and significant other every single day. But maybe it is celebrating on the same day as everyone else that is what makes it so special.

On this love[ly] day I wore a simple pink sweater and purple socks to work. I was greeted with many “Happy Valentine’s Day” wishes from the little girl I care for all day long. She excitedly handed me a pink and red bag filled with chocolate, tea and an adorable card signed by her markings and her brother’s signature. I dressed her in a shirt filled with hearts and topped her with a red bow. Then we read multiple Valentines books. We made heart-shaped pizza, and chocolate candy heart suckers. As a surprise for ‘mommy and daddy’ we even made a few chocolate covered strawberries! When her brother got home he was very happy to show off all of the valentine’s that he had received at school while telling us all about his day! It was a good day at work. Although I was very excited to get home from work!!

When I got home I got ready for the evening. I put on my pink dress and my favorite high heels. My family and I spent the evening together and went out to dinner. I absolutely love spending time with my family!! It was a very lovely evening!! I am very blessed by who love me!! They definitely showed it!

Today I was spoiled. I received lots of chocolate, multiple cute cards, some tea, a good dinner, ice cream… and roses with a thoughtful note from a cute guy! =] The only other thing I could have asked for was some conversation hearts!! Thank you everybody!!!

I hope you all had a love[ly] Valentine’s day! Don’t take those you love for granted, and always remember that you are so very loved!!

We both spent our Sunday morning the way we love to; at Aster, in Minneapolis.

Winter is Here.

I really wanted to say winter is [finally] here, but then I remembered how incredibly cold it was today!! We were very blessed with the ‘spring-like’ weather we had last week. I think I heard that with windchill it got down to -5 degrees today! BRR! Our beautiful spring in January has come to an end. And it is supposed to reach -20 sometime soon, but I cant quite remember when! Sadly, I am not one of those super tough Minnesotans and I become a baby when the weather gets below 10 degrees. That being said my little icicle fingers are done for the night. This my friends, is what I wore today…

From head to toe, in brands I love…

  • Earrings- Fossil [sadly, I did not get a good shot of them.}
  • Sweater- Gap
  • Messenger Bag- Fossil
  • Pants- Kasil
  • Boots- Vintage Guess

I really hope you enjoyed this outfit and come back to see what I will wear next!

Also, I hope you all stay very warm! Speaking of keeping warm; what do you do to stay warm? I can not wait to hear back!! =]

Tea Date.

I just recovered from a horrible sickness that lasted far too long for my liking! To recover from the sickness and regain my voice; I have been drinking cup after cup of tasty tea! A guy I had been talking to knew that I lost my voice and asked me out. Guess where we went. I am sure it goes without saying, but yes, we did go out for tea. And this little ensemble is what I wore!

  • Earrings- Fossil
  • Shirt- Moulinette Soeurs [from Anthropologie]

  • Shoes- Aerosole

Almost everything I am wearing has a very unique story. I love to tell stories so here we go!

These earrings are fun and kind of simple, not crazy with bling or beads. Nothing super special but I love to break out my twirly earrings every once in a while! Now, the funny thing is, every single time I wear these earrings I get compliments on them. And the majority of the compliments come from guys! It is strange because my dad, who is a machinist and a farmer, has complimented me on them. Guys I work with have, random guys on the street, my guy friends, my uncles, and honestly, the list goes on. I just think it is cute how so many men notice my twirly earrings! [Yes, they do spin around!!]

I have been drooling over this watch for over a year and finally bought it…. I am still in love with the classic look that it has!

This shirt was one of the many items I bought from Anthropologie during their last big sale… I had fun, and my closet is very happy about it too!

I found my belt at ‘My Sister’s Closet.’ Many of you may be thinking “Oh boy, Mary has one upset sister right now….” But in reality, they are both very happy! My Sister’s closet is an adorable thrift store in uptown Minneapolis. As I was leaving this belt was pointed out to me. I fell in love right away and I am so happy that I did not pass by it. I love the yellow suede leather  with the two-toned hardware!

Those shoes have been on quite the adventure with me! I bought them last year when I visited NYC. Little did I know that when I bought them I would be carrying them around all day long. Not only did I carry them around all day long, but, I also carried them through a snow storm. The snow was coming down and my shoes just happened to be in a paper bag which got wet and ripped. Oops!! I was also drenched. So there I was carrying my shoes without a bag through NYC. Upon walking up the stairs from the subway I realized that the 100 taxis’ from previous nights had vanished!! I was stuck at a subway station in the middle of a blizzard…. with my shoes! After waiting for an hour the last bus there was persuaded into driving one more route. So he brought me closer to my hotel, which was very nice. Now, every time I wear these shoes I just giggle. That night was beautiful and wonderful and kind of pathetic, but I love the memories that it holds!
