hot pink love

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

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!

  17. such a perfect V-day outfit!



  18. I love this combo...and I think we should wear our sequin skirts year round...chambray shirt and sneakers in the springtime?


  19. I need to check out the Prabal Gurung collaboration! I love those heels, and I definitely like sequins for non-holidays - you styled this skirt perfectly :)

  20. I LOVE the Prabal Gurung line and did a post on it yesterday. I'm hitting Target back up today for goodies. I didn't know you were in Nashville. I love Nashville. I'm in Memphis. 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.

  21. This is the cutest Valentine's inspired outfit EVER! I love the pink & red with the gold sequins. and those Target shoes you picked up are fabulous :)


    The Other Side of Gray

  22. What an adorable V Day outfit! I think you can wear sparkle all year round, so don't put away your sequin skirt just yet.

  23. Love this idea for a Valentine's day look! Pink, red and sparkle! YES I did that for my nails, why not an outfit! Also, I own a rainbow collection of heels... but I can always add more shades of each color ;)

  24. Sweaters and sparkly skirts are a favorite of mine. And your makeup looks flawless here!

  25. 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!

  26. veeery pretty :)

  29. Very Valentines-y! I love the mix of hot pink, gold, and red!

  30. Love this look! The pink and red are so great with the gold sequins!


  31. A rainbow of shoes?! that'd be awesome. I'd love to see a picture when you achieve it! And it's a girls' dream to have a pair in EVERY color!

  45. I love this outfit! The color combination is so cute and I think the sequins look great. I love sequins dressed down for casual outfits; I wouldn't put them away yet! :)

  46. 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.




  47. love the sparkles of the skirt paired with the casualness of the top! and all that you mixed it with pinks and reds -- love this! xo


  48. 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

  49. I loved this collaboration too! And this skirt is adorable!


  50. 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...


  51. 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

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

  53. 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!


  54. You look GORGEOUS in this outfit Jessica. I love everything about it. Pretty, girly sweater, fun, sexy skirt, awesome, sexy shoes. You look great as a red-head too.
    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. =)

  55. I am loving this outfit!! How amazing is that skirt??

    xo Ashley


  56. You are absolutely gorgeous! I love the casual pink sweater mixed with the fancy skirt :)


  57. I feel great about non-holiday sequins, as I love them, therefore I love you skirt! Also love how your lipstick matches your sweater so well :)

  58. 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!

    perfectly priya

  59. I love the sparkle! And those heels are to die for!


  60. I love everything about this outfit! The pinks, reds and sparkles all make for a lovely fun and girly combination! Thanks for the inspiration xo

  61. Great outfit!! Love the red heels & sequins! I wear sequins year round ~ why not?!? :)

  63. One of these days, I'm going to convince myself to wear sequins just because. I LOVE the way you styled this! The pink casual top with the red shoes, the leopard bag, all of it :)
