His & Hers Valentine's gifts

I may have forgotten just how quickly Valentine's Day is approaching, but thankfully in a world where a great gift is just a click away, one week is plenty of time to purchase something for your sweetheart, or for yourself. I'm all about the self Valentine's gift... flowers, chocolate, jewelry... I go for the classics. I do happen to think that rhino vase is all kinds of adorable too, and would go perfectly with those flowers I'm already buying.

Sean's recommendation for the gentlemen is the key ring, which also functions as a bottle opener, and both of us give our stamp of approval to the Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne.


Earrings, $50 at J.Crew
Rhino Vase, $39 at West Elm
Shoulder Bag, $298 at Kate Spade

Fossil Watch, $195 at Nordstrom
Unclip Keychain, $25 at Unsettleco
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne, $125 at Nordstrom

Extra layer

A fur vest under a coat is somewhat of a bulky layer, and truthfully it was not my intent to feature the coat as part of the outfit, however as a testament to how much the weather changed over the last week, I was feeling much too cold to bear taking it off.

I'm happy to see the days getting noticeably longer and the possibility of photos after work just before the light fades is a reality again. I love how you can see the sun's glow reflecting off the windows of the building in the distance in the third photo. It came out just for a moment before the passing clouds overtook it yet again.

Once more with leopard

I couldn't very well do a post featuring all my favorite looks with this coat and not immediately want to wear it again, now could I?

This is my 'too early on a Saturday morning' errand running outfit. I had to take my car in for an oil change and it always takes forever. To avoid the Saturday morning cartoons that blare in the lobby and make me want to poke my eyes out, I decided to wear sneakers and walk to TJMaxx. It's about a 12 to 15 minute walk, but mind you this was on Saturday when it was still winter out. Still, it was a worthwhile endeavor, as I found a Gorjana ring set on clearance for $7, a grey floppy hat on clearance for $10, and avoided feeling like a prisoner at the dealership for an hour and a half.
