Happy Tuesday (almost Wednesday)! Hope everyone had a good day! My day started out pretty darn good as the Anthro sale went live. I learned that my ivory Hiking Ruffles cardigan did indeed get a price cut so that meant a PA for me! When I woke up this morning I checked out my wish list and decided to do a little "Valentine's day present" shopping for myself. My husband did indeed get me flowers yesterday...he had his assistant play flower delivery person and delivered them to me at my door step since he was going to be home late. It was very sweet and unexpected (the delivery part). Anyhow, the present part was still left up to me so I decided to get on the phone with a few stores this morning to see what kind of good deals I could find (I had a few things in mind I wanted to search for). I called a few stores first that I KNEW always offer free shipping on charge sends (Durham, NC and San Antonio, TX) and then moved on to some local stores. I basically used up the rest of my February budget and then some for my V-day presents(BUT Valentines day presents don't count towards my monthly budget, of course!) I can't wait to get some happy mail this week!
After all that, I was visiting with my friend this afternoon when I was dropping her daughter off after school (it was my carpool day) and I saw her Slinking Frills pumps sitting there on her dining room table (she just got them). They are SOOO cute! I've had my eye on these for a long time but just couldn't ever justify the price. They are on the fancier side and I couldn't imagine where else I'd wear them besides church, date night or at dressy events so I've always passed on them. Well, knowing they had gotten a 2nd cut today got me thinking about them a little more and after I saw them at my friend's house, and then tried them on to see what size I would need, it was over. I fell in love. Seriously, how cute can they be? So I went home and started searching. After a few tips and leads from CS and other stores I was finally able to track down a pair in Pennsylvania and they are now on their way to me. Happy Valentines day to me!
So here's what I ended up with today:
So I ended up getting myself a whole outfit as my V-day present...I intended to just buy one item but then I found the skirt and the shoes...and it became an outfit. Whoops! What can I say? Thanks hubs! I may have to strike up this V-day gift giving deal with you every year! =)
Today was a second hair day...I re-straighted it and then decided to braid the front section on one side. I felt very "Bachelor" girl with the braid...all those girls have worn the one-sided braid this season at one time or another. I liked it....sometimes it's fun to change it up a bit. As for what I wore today...another version of my winter uniform... cardigan, tank, skinny jeans and boots. It's just so easy and comfortable!
Here's a look:

I'm so ready for bed tonight...time to hit the hay. Sweet dreams...hope you all have a great Wednesday!
