OOTD: Ballerina & Skulls

Sweatshirt & Necklace: ZARA, Skirt: REVIEW, Rings: FOREVER 21, Tights: DKNY,

I can't help but feel a bit girly and ballerina-esque in a tulip shaped skirt.. but when it's a tulip skirt made out of leather + skull printed sweatshirt I can't help but feel like like a black swan muhahaha.  I'm completely obsessed with this skull printed sweatshirt.. but I wanted to get more use out of it than just wearing it with leggings and using it to work out/run errands in.  Add a skirt + heels to your outfit and instant drama!

Valentines Weekend!

                                                                   I'm not much for Valentines.  

Don't get me wrong I love all the candy, pink & red heart shaped boxes and suddenly Hello Kitty is in heart shaped form EVERYWHERE.

What I don't care for is how everything suddenly becomes EXCEEDINGLY expensive just for "Valentines day".

Especially when it comes to eating out!  Overpriced set menu's make me so angry!!!  Especially when the food ends up not tasting very good because they're trying to pump both the food and people out of their restaurant quickly.

This year I told the Hubs not to plan an extravagant dinner or flowers or anything like that and I told him to leave it to me!

He does so much for me that I wanted him to know how much I appreciate him.

     I wanted to include our other "Valentine loves" our fur babies!

I decided on that a Valentines picnic would be an excellent way to celebrate and something we could do as a family!

Our fur babies went NUTS over the ducks so excited hahahaha.

Our Valentines Picnic spread!

Oh yeah.  

This is happening.

We had french baguettes & Carr's crackers w/ sundried tomato spread, artichoke pesto spread, Brie, Manchego cheese, prosciutto and chicken salad.  Fresh mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, green & red apples.  For a bit of over the top sweetness we also had French waffle cookies, Gingersnaps w/ lemon cream and Godiva cookies!

Who has two fingers and is doing a major happy dance.



Feeding the ducks w/ our leftover baguette and crackers.  

Hahahah I look so dorky and excited haha.

So much fun!

Hehehe I had so much fun I may make this an annual Valentine tradition :)  

I can't help but think this would be so cute to do in the future when we have kids!

After our picnic I needed to walk it off so the Hubs took me to my favorite place in the world.



ok maybe it's not my favorite place in the world.. but yeah admittedly it's pretty high up there. :p

Top & Necklace: F21, Leggings: H&M, Arm Candy: ASOS, MASSIMO DUTTI, NEIMAN MARCUS, Shoes: PRADA, Handbag: CHANEL

No better place to take a few quickie outfit photos but in the Nordstrom woman's lounge. 


A couple of days later I woke up to this!

A non-Valentines Valentines surprise hehehe!

How I know this man loves me.

Flowers - check

Lovingly handwritten card - check

Breakfast burritos - check.


So pretty! 

Can't wait for the lilies to bloom :)

And he said that "Surprise we're going to Austin today for some shopping, food and fun!" 

Like music to my ears muhahaha!

My favorite nail polish combo - Essie Sugar Daddy w/ Essie Luxe Effects Set in Stones

Sweater, Blouse & Necklace: F21, Jean Leggings: HUE,  Shoes: TARGET, Handbag: CHANEL

              Hubs was in the guys section looking at clothes so I snapped some quickie outfit photos :p.

I've been living and I mean LIVING my wedge sneakers lately!  They're so comfy and yet they make me tall too!!  It's like the most amazing and perfect combination ever haha.

Rocking chairs and the most ADORABLE gigantic armadillo ever!  

Only in texas hehehe!

Lychee slushie & Milk Tea

Hubs drove nearly 2 hours IN traffic just so I could get my Taiwanese food fix!  

Now that is love :p

Braised pork belly w/ spicy pickled cabbage and Salt & Pepper Chicken

Dude I am seriously SERIOUSLY impressed.  The Taiwanese food here is legit.. better than ANYTHING I've ever had in San Francisco or in Maryland!

Who knew Austin has bomb Taiwanese food hahaha

Stewed pork w/ spicy cabbage and egg & Scallion onion pancake

Last snapped pic of the night :)

We spend the afternoon shopping and right before dinner I actually changed into my favorite neon yellow Brian Atwoods!  

Neon yellow and fuchsia pink are probably one of my absolute favorite color combo's hehehe :)

A Valentine Valentino Reveal!

Woke up to a GORGEOUS red (for Valentines tehehe :) box sitting on our hotel room loveseat! 



I don't have anything Valentino in my closet so I was so excited when I was opening this box. hahahaha.  Honestly I was pretty excited just by the box I mean seriously how gorgeous is this red box?!  

The Hubs was like "yah maybe I'll use the box for our receipts this year that way it'll be easier to locate them when we do our taxes next year" 

uhhhhhhhhhhhhh whaaaat?! 


Pointy Toes!!



Valentino Rockstud slingbacks!

I've always wanted nude pumps but I don't have any in my shoe closet because I always get sidetracked on whatever is the newest pretty and bright color of the season hahahaha as many of you know my penchant for very bright in your face shoes hahah.

So I'm super psyched the Hubs handpicked these shoes for me he said I needed some nude classical shoes in my collection.  And he's so right muhahahaha!  They're nude and classic but I think they have a bit of edge to them with the studs.  I'm in love!!! hehehehe.

The nude is almost like a nude taupe color which is so gorgeous in real life.  They are made out of patent leather.  They stand 4 and a 1/4 high.

These shoes are definitely a strong departure from my usual type of shoes.  No platform, pointy toes, and a very neutral color.  Hahaha. Totally different from anything and I mean ANYTHING in my closet but I love them!

The Hubs purchased them in my normal shoe size EU 37 which is an US 7 but most of my shoes are almond or rounded toe shaped and since these were pointed they were too tight so I took them back to the store and exchanged them for a 37.5 which fit perfectly :)!  

So size up if you have wider feet like I do!

AHAHAHA sad... my poor attempt at covering up the generic and slightly horrible corporate hotel feel with my fur babies play blanket. 

Obsessed since I don't have anything like this in my closet they're so ladylike hahaha. 

They are surprisingly comfortable too considering they are pointy toed and don't have a platform.

I'm envisioning so many outfits with these babies!  

Lace, leather and peplum!! hehehehe!

 So excited I can't wait to wear these!

Thanks so much booboo!  I heart them so much :)!
