How to wear hearts after Valentine’s day

Valentine’s day is over, but your love affair with hearts is not. What’s a girl to do? Never fear! This post will help you sneak hearts into your wardrobe all year round.

One way to wear hearts year round is to find a smaller more subtle heart pattern, like the chambray top I’m wearing below. From a distance, it looks like polka dots.

Another way to wear hearts is in your accessories. I have heart earrings and heart socks on as well. You could also wear necklaces, rings and bracelets with hearts or heart tights.

If you want to go big and bold, you could wear a top with a gigantic heart on it and layer a jacket or a blazer over it.

The same goes for a skirt or top. Wear a heart dress with a cute little cardigan. Or wear the skirt with a solid color top.

Those cute little sweaters with the heart patches on the elbow are also a good year round pick. Until it’s too warm to wear a sweater, that is.

And furthermore, why not wear a swimsuit with hearts in the summer with a cute cover-up?

Keep in mind, hearts aren’t  nearly as big of a no no after Valentine’s day as say, wearing Santa / Christmasey stuff is, so no worries if it’s after Valentine’s day and you still want to keep going with all the cute little heart clothing you own. Usually just toning it down a bit is enough to not look overly ‘Valentinesy’ after Valentine’s day.

Happy weekend everyone! Monday I start a new job as a medical assistant for a counseling office. I’ll be working with a couple of people I worked with at another counseling office. So excited to be working with them again! Wish me luck.

What to wear to a holiday get together

What do you wear to these holiday gatherings where family or friends come together for a holiday feast or party? The weather is getting colder so you want to keep warm but look festive at the same time.

I got these slacks a couple of years ago and have only worn them once or twice because they are a bit much for normal day time wear. But when I stumbled across this tweed jacket for half off at Shop Girl Consignment shop in Gresham, I thought they would be perfect paired with the tweed jacket.

I am so into the tweed trend going on right now! Tweed? Yes please! Plus throw on a solid black colored ruffled blouse and metallic flats. So cute and trendy. If you don’t like tweed, we can’t be friends. Just kidding. Really. I am capable of living and letting others live. This is the only tweed item I own right now, so if you don’t like tweed, it can all come my way instead.

More on Shop Girl Consignment. I just happened to stumble in there a couple of weeks ago when she was having a tape cutting ceremony from the Gresham City Council. The owner had just taken over the shop in August and the city of Gresham was welcoming her as a new business in the Gresham area. How cool is that?

There were cute little sugar cookies with her logo on them made by Sugar Cubed Cakes – so delish! – and everything in the store was half off just for that day. I may have gone a little crazy. By the time I had even a few things I wanted to buy gathered up, I knew I needed to get out of the store before I bought out the store in my size. The owner only takes really nice clothes, shoes and accessories that are only a few years old, so the items are currently in trend. She also only takes good quality items, so everything was in nice shape. Seriously, this was one of the best consignment shops I’ve ever walked into!

If you are looking for some cute small businesses to hit up for Small Business Saturday this weekend, I would highly recommend her shop if you are anywhere near the Gresham area. Sugar Cubed Cakes is also right nearby and doing a free decorate your own cupcake event from 3-5pm, while Gresham icandy is doing a free cookie decorating event from 3-5pm on Saturday November 24th as well. There are a whole bunch of things going on this Saturday. You can get more info here.

For anyone who doesn’t live nearby, check out the small businesses in your town this weekend. Shop locally and support small businesses! For those of you in other countries who don’t do Small Business Saturday, at some point during the holiday season, try to stop by a small shop and buy presents there. Help our small businesses out this year. And no, I do not get paid any commission from any of them to say that. And I only get a free cookie or cupcake if I go participate in the events on Saturday leading up to the tree lighting at 6pm.
