Date Night

Outfit Details:
Sweater | Pants | Shoes Similar {Here & Here}

For Valentine's Day this year Andrew and I actually got to dress up and go out, thank you Mom and Dad for watching the kiddos. Anyway, we went out to dinner and to see a comedy show. It was such a great night and it was so nice to go out just the two of us!

I decided to go a little more outside of my comfort zone by trying a pair of colored pants. I have had these things in my closet for a while now and have only worn them one or two times because they somehow made me very self conscious. I was rummaging through my things, trying desperately to find something to wear to a comedy show, was a lot more difficult that I thought it was going to be. So I ended up with this outfit and I couldn't have been more thrilled.

We're Cute

So this week I challenge you to style a pair of colored pants yourself!

Mixing Patterns

Outfit Details:
Shirt | Scarf | Jeans | Shoes | Bag Similar {Here}

Probably my favorite trend as of late has been mixing patterns. I just love all of the options that there are with this trend. This is one of my favorite outfits here lately, which with the weather we have been having, I haven't been able to wear it that often.

Honestly speaking, at first I was absolutely terrified to attempt this trend, mixing patterns seemed like something I couldn't get away with, like I was going to mess it up somehow. However, one thing I have learned with mixing patterns like this is that the options are endless and that it is mu\ch easier and way more fun than I could have ever even thought!

My challenge for you this week is to step outside of your comfort zone and mix some patterns of your own with items from your own closet!

Great Weather and Birthdays

Outfit Details:
Blouse Similar {Here} | Jeans | Shoes

Back in February we celebrated our oldest sons SECOND birthday! I seriously can't believe we have a two year old, it seems surreal. He's turning into such a smart, sometimes too smart, little kid. The reason I wanted to share this outfit today is because it was one of my favorites that I have gotten to wear recently. We live in the Midwest and this time of the year it's usually too cold to wear anything other than bulky sweaters, however the weekend of his party we at 80 degree weather, it was absolutely gorgeous!

On another note, this blouse I bought probably six or seven years ago and the last time I wore it, before his party, was at least four years ago. Again, reinventing an item in my closet from a long time ago! It makes the blouse seem brand new, without having to spend any extra money! My favorite kind of outfit.

Also, I shared a link to the shirt that Oliver wore for his party. I have a small Etsy shop that I started a while ago and I have branched into specialized clothing. If there is anything you would like created just shoot me an email at mmlarose30 {at} gmail {dot} com OR just message me through Etsy!

I hope you have been able to enjoy some great weather wherever you are!
