Casual outfit idea for Valentine’s Day

I love Valentine’s day colors. Pinks, purples, reds, whites and creamy whites. I’m definitely a girly girl. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with not being one, either. I don’t have a lot of outfits with hearts all over them – although I can think of one top – I’ll have to make sure that gets into the rotation this next week. But I do have lots of red and pink sweaters and tops. And a few purple or white ones. Time to bring them all out this coming week!

 

Pink sweater, white coat, jeans & slouchy bow boots

Sweater is from Ann Taylor Loft – end of season a previous year. Off-white coat, Ross, jeans, given to me – old. Slouchy bow boots, Kohl’s end of season, purple sunglasses, old. Betsey Johnson bow bag, similar here.

Before the snow hit, we got some photos in this fun winter outfit, that is not only warm, but perfect for Valentine’s day. It would be pretty to get some more photos on a snow day, but the snow is already half melted and I didn’t have anyone who could help take photos for me yesterday when it was really pretty out. So I tromped around in the snow in my over-sized rain boots. (Used to be my kids, but they’ve outgrown them. Now I wear them in the snow since I don’t actually have a good pair of winter boots. I should ought to remedy that!)

I’ll have to post some of my photos on here from my snow day later, but for now, this outfit, though. I love bright pink. Such a fun color and bright colors are my friend. I love this coat, also worn hereI’m always afraid I’m going to get it dirty, though. Last time I wore it I got a glob of mascara on it. Luckily, it did come out! And slouchy boots are so in again. I’ve had these for a while, but it’s always nice to have styles come back in again! At least style you like.

I feel bad for the poor trees that were just starting to bloom before the cold blast came in. Luckily they weren’t in full bloom, so they can finish trying to bloom later on when the temps warm up for good. It just goes to show you, sometime you’ve just got to bloom when the timing is right. It may feel like ‘right now’ is the right time to bloom, but God knows what’s best and his timing is always perfect.

To all my peeps in the northern hemisphere – stay warm this week!

Chasing Sunsets

I’ve been obsessed with catching sunsets lately. I was trying to catch a good one from Crown Point off the Columbia River Highway and mostly just got some golden glow in the sky. Sometimes you can catch a good one, sometimes not, and sometimes you just have to go chasing sunsets! It’s all about being in the right place at the right time. From the golden glows to the brightest of pinks, here are a few of my favorites. How absolutely beautiful when God paints the skies in glorious colors for us to enjoy at the beginning and end of our days!

 

That one day, when I saw a cloud that looked like the angel of God painting the heavens in beautiful colors as she glided slowly across the skies...
