The Big Blank-0

Today is my second time celebrating my birthday on this lovely little blog of ours, but this year, something is different. This year, I am celebrating what one might call a milestone. I am leaving one decade behind and saying hello to a brand new one, yay yippee!

Now you all know I refuse to admit my age here, as I am a lady and ladies do not divulge how many years they have graced us with their presence. And yes, I am aware that there are only so many decades I could be entering. But I am determined to keep this mystery alive, so while you may feel free to guess, I will not be giving anything away. Nope, there will be no admissions, no hints, absolutely nothing to confirm or even imply what age I am turning today. You will just have to live in this place of unknowing and get used to it, because this lady isn’t talking, not even if you pay me.

So here is to another year of exciting adventures, good friends, and a whole bunch of who knows! Because just like me, I am thinking 2017 may have a few tricks up its sleeves. Guess I will just have to wait and see…

The New Romantics

Judging by the number of extremely pointed jewelry commercials hitting the airwaves (“you’ve been together a long time… like, a long, long time… like a loooooooong, long time…hint, hint”) and the sudden infestation of hearts on basically everything, it must be time for everyone’s favorite February holiday! That’s right, President’s Day is just around the corner! Just kidding… Yes, Valentine’s Day is next week and we don’t know about you, but we’re just a pair of girls standing in front of their closets asking for them to magically have the perfect outfit. Luckily for us, our friends at Paisley Boutique have all of the cutest styles (you know, if looking like a really hip, cool girl is your chosen aesthetic), so we won’t be standing there for long!

 

Whether you’re looking to amp up date night or just looking to avoid the pink/red vibe, a monochromatic look with subtle metallic accents is a perfectly understated and chic way to stand out in a sea of lace and tulle. These gray jeans are as comfortable as they are cute and we love the way this flowing blouse plays with the structure of the rest of the look (they were on to something when they said opposites attract). And can we get a round of applause for that bag already? So. flipping. CUTE.

Monochrome not your thing or maybe you’re in search of something a tad dressier? We love the crazy flattering drape on this burgundy bodycon dress! These taupe peep-toe high-heeled bootie-mules (a term we just made up) and cool accessories like these geometric cage earrings and blue leather wristlet ensure that this look is just as unexpected and cool as it is flirty and fierce.

Everything (except for Jeanne’s shoes) can currently be found at Paisley Boutique:
