This weekend why don't you :: add a pop of red to your outfit - getting in that Valentine's Day spirit!

{what you might have missed on Here&Now}

{1.} I found a maxi skirt from Shabby Apple that is truly a work of art + you can enter to win your own $50 Shabby Apple gift card. More details here.  

{2.} I finally got my act together and made a guide to my favorite murals in Nashville - rounding up 20 awesome spots that you have to visit when in town! 

{3.} Stepping out in the snow in my favorite beanie + 5 things that happened during my week off from school thanks to the icy weather! 

{5.} Taking my love of distressed denim to the next level & loving every minute! 

{posts I'm loving around the internets}

{1.} Everyone & their mother has those Stuart Weitzman (or knock off version) thigh-high boots & I've just never thought they were for me. After seeing this outfit on The Sweetest Thing Blog, I am even more terrified of these boots, as it looks like they are now just becoming pants... is this a thing you are on board with? Thoughts?

{2.} Many of the emails from readers are about living in Nashville. Music City is definitely a hot place to be these days, & there are so many things to do, see, & eat! For those of you wondering where to stay when you visit, StyleBlueprint is another local blog that posted a guide to some of our unique local Nashville hotels. They also posted a list of the best places to have your photo taken - a great partner to the Nashville mural guide I posted earlier this week. 

{3.} It's tax time (eeekkkkk!). If you are a blogger you know that navigating this stack of paperwork is anything but straightforward. This list of tax tips from Turbo Tax is helpful, & I also head to Amy Nordard's blog (she's a certified CPA that helps creatives with their taxes) to see her insider's info!

{4.} I adore bloggers who keep it real. These blogger outtakes from Sarah (Sarah's Real Life) are the funniest thing I've seen all week. Thanks for the giggles Sarah, we've all been there! I always say that I have to continue being friends with all my photographers for life, because they have every last TERRIBLE photo of me that are not appropriate for public consumption. 

{5.}  Outfit crush: I was just talking this week about my love of tunics + skinny jeans. After seeing this look on Shelby, I'm thinking a pair of leather leggings are in my future to continue my love of this silhouette! (I already am stalking this pair of leather leggings!)

{what I'm shopping now}

{1.} A trend I have been wanting to try (and further validated by the forever chic Blair Eadie) is the cape. How amazing is this one from Ann Taylor (now on sale for 50% off, just like EVERY THING else on their site!)!? Are you pro-cape?

{2.} The bout of Winter weather we had in Nashville (4 snow days baby!) reminded me that I am sorely unprepared for actual Winter conditions (Southerner for life!). I had to wear my Hunter boots in the snow, & while my feet were dry, they weren't the warmest, so now I'm on the hunt for a pair of proper boots. I am really wowed by all the gorgeous Winter boot styles that Sperry has, & I've heard great things about Sorel boots too. Do you have any of the styles below? If you have the LL Bean "bean boots", do you like the 6" or 8" style?
