Daily MelWear: Pink and Red

Hey gang! Did you all make it through Monday unscathed? Sometimes that's hard to do!

Last night my husband and I took his father to dinner at a tiny little place in town that has soups, sandwiches and all sorts of things. A full bar too. Not that I noticed that. *ahem*

After dinner, my father-in-law graciously offered to put our daughter to bed and stay with her so that we could run to Wal-Mart for a few things.

Isn't it nice to break out of the work-night rut of coming home, having dinner and going to bed? As much as I'm usually exhausted and would rather just come home and crash, sometimes it's really great to change the routine and do something different on a work night.

With photo effects
This skirt is one of those that I snagged at the Salvation Army store this weekend. I was originally going to pair it with a teal tank, white cardi and brown accessories, but then I decided that I wanted to play with the pink a little bit, add some red with the belt and another shade of pink (I usually call them wine) with the heels. I really like the result, it turned out better than I'd expected.  Don't you love it when that happens?

Without photo effects
This outfit makes me feel feminine, classic and chic. I feel very odd saying that because I typically don't speak very highly of myself or give myself compliments.  I'm normally very overly critical of myself and I don't really like me very much.  I'm trying to change that.

I bought a new photography iPhone app last week and decided to play around with it for the blog this morning. It's NOT hipstamatic! This app is called Lo-Mob and you can edit the pictures with all sorts of different "lenses" after you've taken the shot.
So what do you think?

Today's outfit:
Floral Skirt: Salvation Army
Black Top: Target (from my pre-weightloss era, it's a little big but cinches nicely with the belt)
Red Snakeskin Belt: Salvation Army
Wine Rosebud Pumps: DSW
Floral Statement Necklace: Target


  1. I have just a couple of outfits that I feel fully "put-together" in. It's a good feeling. :o)

  2. I love the color combination. Very chic!

  3. I love that skirt and the cute print!

  4. Love the skirt. I am so into florals at the moment. I agree life can get a bit boring of you just keep doing the same old.

  5. Great skirt~ I love your color pairings too. It's fun to do something unexpected with color

  6. Your skirt is beautiful! What a great find from Salvation Army!

  7. adorable! love the outfit. the iphone camera apps are so fun to play around with aren't they?

  8. Jenny: It is a good feeling! But you should have more than a couple outfits. Let's go shopping! :)

    Frances Joy: Thanks!

    Tricia: Thank you! Isn't it adorable?

    StyleEyes: Thanks! I'm big on florals lately too. And we're trying to get out of our weeknight rut, gotta find fun things to do!

    Megan: Thank you! I used to be so scared of mixing colors. I'd stick with neutrals most of the time, never added in any additional colors that weren't in the print of the item...glad I'm getting over that!

    Jamie: Thanks! I love the Salvation Army store! Although it's a little too big and overwhelming at times. We have a Goodwill Boutique a little further away that's smaller, I should probably go there more often too.

    Tiffany: Thank you! I'm really loving this new app. I don't have a ton of photo ones but the ones that I do have are LOTS of fun to play with!

  9. I love that skirt - such a fun print and wonderful colors. I love how you wore the belt over the blouse, too. It creates a great silhouette. You look lovely!

  10. Thank you, Sara!I appreciate the sweet words!
