I was initially going to go for a typical red and black look when I realized I would be posting here on Valentine’s Day. But, at the last minute I decided to go for a softer light pink and cream look instead. Caught you off guard, didn’t I? I know I did. I even surprised myself.
My pics look kind of gloomy; my apologies. The sun goes down pretty quickly during this time of year in Florida which makes it difficult to take pics after work. Nonetheless, I hope the gloom doesn’t dampen the love in your air. I couldn’t stand to be the one responsible for that.
On a brighter note, I’m happy that you are reading this post because you’ll get to meet a big part of me today! (I’m quite enjoying getting acquainted with you all. I hope you don’t mind me too much either.) Without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to MY valentine! My husband, Dwayne. Isn’t he cute? I just love him.
If he looks tired, that’s because he was. But whether he’s tired, busy, upset, or stressed, he still makes time to take photos for me. The tripod takes the pressure off from time to time, but he’s still my #1 photographer!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! I hope you have a joyful evening with the people you love the most.
My blog: My Garments of Praise
I’m trying something that I don’t normally do which is pattern mixing. (I’ve noticed that Chandra does a great job at coordinating patterns, textures, and colors, but I suppose I’m still a novice compared to her. I’m looking forward to learning a thing or two around here!) I originally bought the top and skirt at the same time with no intention of wearing them together, but I threw them both on and voila! It seems like they are getting along quite nicely, don’t ya think?
Just as a warning: I can be a little goofy, quirky, and random at times while blogging, but as we get to know each other more, I hope you won’t mind.
See you all same time, same place in two weeks! Feel free to stop by www.mygarmentsofpraise.com to see me more often if you like. Until next time…
Brandon snapped this photo of me Sunday morning in the Target parking lot after we went brunching. Seriously, though. What is up with that filthy looking pavement?
Getting married meant I had to give up closet space. I still have clothes in two closets back home and I think I’m going to donate the entire lot of it to Goodwill once I make it back down for Christmas. This weekend, though, I managed to organize my San Jose closet by color. Lights, darks, coats, and prints! I realized that I several polka dot printed blouses and sweaters. There’s just something about polka dots! When I saw this blouse at JCrew for $15–I snagged it!
I’m wearing a JCrew blouse that I couldn’t find on their site, but here’s a similar one here, an old NY&Co pencil skirt, Forever 21 tights, and Mojo Moxy bow heels (sold out). You can recreate the look of these shoes with shoeclips.
