Happy Valentines' Day

 Ricki's jacket (last seen here), Violet & Claire top, La Senza stole, H&M pants, 
Urban Original boots (last seen here), Aldo belt & clutch, Joe Fresh gloves & custom PBR Designs necklace

Happy Valentines' Day!  I am always excited to use any holiday to dress up as an excuse and Valentines' Day is no exception.  I love the idea of pinks and reds and going either sexy or sweet, however, more often than not as the day arrives I cannot for the life of me put together an outfit I'm satisfied with.  And what do I end up with?  An entire black outfit with a sole red belt.  WTF?  I couldn't get more creative than this?!  Ugh.  I initially started out wearing these pants with this outfit but wasn't feeling it at all.  Ultimately, time was running short so I swapped in my new H&M pants from my weekend away and called it an outfit. 

Sidenote: totally rockin' the red lip (resolution alert!), I mean, what better excuse than Valentines' Day, right?  Well, not so great for kissing, but whatevs... regardless, it's so-so and husband agreed he prefers no lipstick.

Husband calls the middle shot, 'The waxer' - yeah, you can probably 
get an idea of what he's talking about - totally classy, just like my pose.

dang girl, you look hot! I love the red lips on you! my husband hates lipstick too, mostly because it gets on him or when he shares my drink he drinks lipstick. LOL!

sidenote: I thought I had you in my RSS feed and then realized that I never see your posts so I just tried to add you again and it says you don't have a feed? Let me know what the address is if you do so I can add you!

haahh, this entire post is funny "that's the best I could come up with???" I think it looks great!! WAAAITTTT that white jacket you have is AMAZING, I need it, I need it, I need it!!! You looks so gorgeous in that first shot. And isn't red lipstick funny? Guys never like it!! I love to wear it now and again but I think it's totally a girl thing, like your hubby said, guys always prefer none- but you rock it! And the waxer, just love it! Gorgeous girls who goof around are the best!

Sharon Lei said...

LOL "the waxer".. I Love it. :) and totally get it.

Smokin' hot A.. love the outfit and the red lips. I used a lip stain with gloss over, so my lips are still kissable and the hubby doesn't mind. Hope you guys have a great Valentines Day!!

xx Love & Aloha

Gorgeous Amanda!! Umm. I feel like I would get along so well with you and your hubby ' the waxer'. . really?! Love it. haha

So I went to Old Navy the other day because one of my student's game me a gift card and I was so excited to see if they had anymore of those pants (the beige ones with the stripe) and just my luck they had a 6! (you were right, they fit huge) anyway. . . i tried them on and sadly my legs do not do them justice the way yours do. and they were only 10$! i was sad to put them back. . but oh well. I'll just have to try to find something else of yours I can copy.

Vavavavoom! You look hot!

To answer your question re: music time lines, in the embedded code provided on youtube just change the height to 25 (ie. height="25">). Hope that helps. :)
