hot pink love

{What I Wore: J.Crew tippi sweater // Land's End Canvas sequin skirt // Golden Ponies clutch // ShoeDazzle suede heels }

{ Get the Look }
pink sweater {$39.50} + sequin skirt {$54.99} + leopard clutch {$27.00} + red heels {$39.95, studded & fabulous!)
Wearing my favorite Boutique Onze zodiac "Leo" necklace & Diament Designs "Jessica" necklace
I don't have much to say today, just a few things of note:

1. I am still "Taking One Passing it On" - you loved this sequin skirt from last time, so I enjoyed styling it up for date night with the boy (he liked seeing my stems come out of hibernation too!)

2. My dream is to own a pair of heels in every color of the rainbow. Ty thinks I am crazy, but you can't knock someone's dreams... even if it IS a dream of rainbow heels. So in February, I checked red off the list (yellow too actually... that's to come!)

3. How do you feel about non-holiday sequins? Yay or nay? Maybe February is the last month? Do I have to put them away yet!?

4. Nashville surprising never has any crowd issues at the Target collaboration launches (yay for the little things). I strolled into my local store Sunday afternoon & picked up these Prabal Gurung shoes (meow!) {if this, this, & this magically arrived at my house I wouldn't question it at all}. Favorite collaboration yet!

5. I met up with my blogger friend Jessica again this weekend - seriously how great it this blogging world we are apart of!? I have to say that a blogging friend has become a real-life friend!

And I wore neon pink and red yesterday. Great minds think alike?! Love your skirt and the take one pass it on idea! I'm going to try it soon.

  26. I wish I had the patience for nail art, that and stead hands! When my boyfriend found out about my rainbow shoe dream, all he said was, "you aren't getting indigo too are you!?"
    haha - maybe not indigo, but definitely pink!

  48. Wow...lucky you for nabbing those shoes.

    I love how you've styled this. The red is so unexpected.

    Sequins are for every day of the year! Didn't you get the memo?

    Also...don't know how you manage to get such fab photos using your self timer. The one of your face is amazing.

  50. Thank you Suzanne!
    I used to use the self timer, but with my new f/1.4 prime lens, I find that using a remote gives me much crisper photos. I plan to do an update on my photography set up soon, so stay tuned :) xx

  52. I think this is the perfect Valentine's Day outfit...a little pink, red and sequins! And good job at only buying 1 thing from the new Target collection. Those shoes are KILLER! I have my eye on one of the tops, but I'm hoping it goes on sale...

  53. Well if I learned anything from the last Target collab, then I'm sure these will go on sale too! A little bright for my taste, but at sale prices I can be known to get crazy ;) xx

  54. I love the sequin skirt! Definitely think it's ok to wear non-holiday sequins, especially for date nights!

  55. What a pretty look! I debated on purchasing a gold sequins skirt (it was in my hands at the cash register) and thought it was too holiday. I like how you paired it with the pink & red. I don't think it looks holiday at all and it adds an fun interest to the outfit. So I say you can keep it out to use for the rest of the year. I ordered a couple items online instead of going to Target and can't wait to see how it fits!

    By the way, a few months ago I discovered your blog and became hooked. I read every single post and saw all of your outfits. You have delightful style. I even left you some comments along the way and followed you. I don't know if you knew that but I am letting you know.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I support you 100%. I hope you start following me as well. Thanks a lot. Wishing you a Fab Weekend, Ada. =)

  60. Soo many adorable details in this outfit! I absolutely love it. You are inspiring me to break out some hot pink this week (well you and V day I guess). Ha I totally looked up the Prabal line and had a momentary freak-out until I realized, I probably have a few days to make it over there! Love those heels. And the close up pics of you are soo pretty Jessica!
