What I Wore: Shiny Hearts

While a lot of you have had crazy snow and ice, it has been unseasonably sunny and pleasant here in the Pacific Northwest.  I refuse to question this amazing sun and cool breezes, so I have tried to soak it up as much as possible!  We have been very busy so far this year, so nice weather makes running around town that much more fun!  For all this running around, I like to go the "cute but practical" route with jeans, a t-shirt and jacket or fun sweatshirt like this one, and my trusty pink Reeboks.

The day after Valentine's Day, I stayed on theme by donning my new shiny-hearted sweatshirt.  I love the silver hearts that shimmer in the light.  The great thing about the light grey color is that it goes with any other color you want to add to it.  The material is thinner than a heavy fleece sweatshirt, so I didn't get overheated.  The sweatshirt is definitely a bit more fitted than I expected, but it wasn't something I felt self-conscious in or thought was ill-fitting.  If you carry most of your weight in your tummy or bust, you may want to size up.

I paired the sweatshirt with my TTT skinny jeans, also from Lane Bryant.  I've talked about them in a previous post.  I did wear a cami underneath the sweatshirt, tucked in, to keep the jeans from poking my tummy while I was sitting down.  These trusty Reeboks though!  I just found a black pair on eBay for $20! A few weekends ago I hit up the outlet mall to see about buying more colors, but the Reebok Outlet store was gone.  I really wanted the coral and purple ones as well.

Our outing that day involved a couple errands, but our main stop was our friends' son's birthday party at Cake Happy.  Our friend's sister Nikki, along with Nikki's husband Jon, own the bakery and offer lots of delicious treats!  Nikki is super talented at cake-decorating and sculpting wonderful works of art from fondant. (She made Sean's Yoda birthday cake.)  For her nephew's party, she made this awesome Star Wars Angry Birds cake with a gluten-free layer on top.  I was so excited to have cake!  It has been a while.

The other perk of great weather is being able to see Mount Hood in all its beauty.  As someone not from the area, who lived in flatter places most of my life, this view never gets old.  It always looks like a movie backdrop.  I just stare at it in awe.

  2. Thank you so much! It is definitely more practical to my life to dress cute and casual instead of super dressy, so I am happy that people respond to it positively.

  3. I've been awaiting this post! You look so beautiful! The splashes of red roses are so lush and romantic. You found the perfect photo backdrop, too! I've only ordered from Asos once, and I always forget about them. This is a good reminder to work them into my browsing more regularly. The palette in this kimono is different from those I've seen, and I feel like it's more coquettish and romantic than the more popular bohemian, hippie styles. I think I prefer this one, especially for your style. You've styled it simply and really let the kimono shine. And I think long pendant necklaces are the perfect accessory choice for kimonos. They elongate the neck and chest, even when the kimonos are boxy. It's a simple trick but ties the looks together beautifully. So happy you found a kimono that works for you. Thanks so much for the referral, too!

  4. Somehow, despite all of the older stuff in my closet, and all the new releases I've closeted, GB seems to only be sending me the stuff I commented on on your blog! I got the Evans top a few days ago, and now this dress is on its way to me! lol!

  7. Thank you! It is always the ones I am a little unsure of (but feel good about) that seem to get the most positive responses. I'm warming up more to hi-lo!

  8. Thank you so much, Liz! I was scouting our yard for photoshoot placing the day before and just happened to see those roses out. It was meant to be! I've ordered from Asos a handful of times. They carry a few different brands that seem to size a little smaller, but the ASOS Curve branded items can be more generously sized. I have a black knit peplum top that is a bit small, but my rainbow sequin pencil skirt and a couple of dresses are from Asos.
    I definitely loved this kimono for the more romantic feel and practical color combination. I think I have a lot of things it can pair well with, so it seemed like a logical first foray into kimonos. (I just bought a jersey knit hummingbird kimono from Yours Clothing!) I'm really excited to challenge myself to get creative with more looks involving this kimono. Thank you for such lovely words!
