Pops of Pink

wheeeeeeeew! it was quite the weekend over here, you guys. my bestie/roommate’s birthday was on Friday, so i took most of the day off to spend with her. we went to a movie, got our nails done, and celebrated with some more friends later that night. the celebration continued on Saturday with brunch and then Mike and i met up with some of his family for drinks, since they were in the city for the evening. my car battery completely died on Sunday while i was at Starbucks, so i had to have my roommate and Mike come rescue me by helping me jump the car. and when i say ‘helping me’, i mean that Mike took the el all the way up here to do it all for me while i watched. he’s my hero. we had a low-key Valentine’s evening (i don’t really care about doing anything for V-day, i just wanted to hang with him!) — we started watching a new show and enjoyed some take-out food and at-home cocktails. it was the perfect way to spend a Sunday night, if you ask me. 

so, it was a busy weekend but it was one of the best that i’ve had in awhile! spending lots of time with the people that i like makes for a good one, for sure. i sort of feel like i need an entire day to recover, though. with so much going on, i didn’t get to relax around the apartment as much as i usually do, so i was feelin’ it this morning!

to the outfit: remember how i talked last week about picking a color and using your accessories in that color to create an outfit? well, here we are again with that same color – i can’t get enough of it! this time i’m using a totally neutral canvas of a grey sweater and grey denim, but added in the pops of that rose quartz in the necklace, bag, and shoes, and paired it with my favorite camel coat for a little more dimension. so. easy. 

put together + comfortable + stylish = win win win

    Love this look, Lauren! That necklace is the perfect pop, and to me, pink with neutrals says "Spring is on the way!" ~Lacy
    P.S. Can't WAIT to receive my first Dearly Box-having your sis curate pushed me over the edge to try it!

  2. Love the shoes! I've been itching for a pair of slip-on sneakers for spring.

  3. I loved your accessories. Your coat, your pendant, your boots. Your whole collection is just awesome. Last week I had a red SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS purse from Alysse Sterling. Please advice how it looks.
