Outfit Chronicles: Dazzled and Tamed

I think this was a first in... who knows how long that I didn't blog on a Monday! This last month had to be one of the most hectic months ever. In one weekend Jose and I moved out, I had a wedding to assist, AND I had a dance performance AFTER dance practice. All in 2 days.

I typically prep my Monday posts on Sunday night, but I've been coming home after dance practice on Sundays with my legs aching. Being on your feet for about 8 hours, then dancing the next day has truly been exhausting me. And I wouldn't be nearly as caught up if it wasn't for my amazing hubs. Not sure what I'd do without my man!! Probably eat cereal for dinner and buy a massage chair. And I'm pretty sure they don't make pretty looking massage chairs, so that idea is out!

This outfit inspiration came from this pin on my Pinterest..

I call it the tamed dazzle.

sparkly top: plato's closet, polo button up: my sister's closet, jeans: charolette russe

Basically you pair the neutral with the bling ;) So I thought I would do that with my nail polish!

And that my friends is some tamed bling bling.

On a side note, I love this quote by Jasmine Star:

"That's when it hit me: those who quietly sit behind a computer and study, photograph for the love of learning, and freely give to others in the name of moving the industry forward are putting in their 20 miles. Every day.

And we don't have to finish first to know we ran a good race." -- It really grounds me during this moment of planning and restlessness. Hope you find moments to give -- and love -- freely :)

Outfit Chronicles: Heels & Flannel

About 2 years ago, I had posted on my wedding blog how much I loved these necklaces. Fast forward to this past Christmas and guess who got one of those necklaces?! Me! But that's not the crazy part. Jose got the necklace for me and had NEVER seen that blog post!! I guess I'm that predictable ;)

I've tried not to wear it everyday, but it went perfect for today's outfit... the playful flannel :)

Flannel: F21, belt: Zara, jeans: Ross (Billabong), bracelet: handmade gift, necklace: Luxedeluxe :), shoes: Plato's Closet (in Atlanta) for 10 bucks!

So this outfit was quite the layering. I'm actually wearing cotton (polka dot) tights under my jeans because it was a chilly day.

After I took a picture of my shoes again...

I looked up and tried to take a picture of Jose's butt...

..but it was blocked by his wallet. Maybe next time.

Any thoughts on this outfit?! I was SUPER hesitant about my hair and sweeping it all back because I have a five-head (not a forehead... ;). Haha. Jose seemed to like it, so that works for me! Speaking of hair, check out this super cute and very quick hair tutorial. I've considered making one too.... maybe...

Happy Friday! I'm hoping to visit one of those Food Trucks that you see on Food Network tonight with Jose. Gourmet hotdogs? Yes please. They also have a peanut butter, jelly, chicken sandwich! Woah! I wonder if that is genius or weird...?
