Valentine's Day

       I have always loved the combination of red and pink which is why I had to give it a shot this Valentine's Day! It was a great day; Starbucks, Movie, Photo Shoot (pictures to come!) and dinner at our local pub.  Fantastic weather to boot!

Typical Day

      This outfit is a very typical run around town outfit for me. This is a true representation of what I normally wear on a day to day basis. 

        It's no secret that I enjoy putting together casual outfits and this was perfect for our 60 degree (Ignore the snow shovel in the background) weather as well as hopping in and out of the car from place to place.

Winter Essential

      Although wearing fun, cozy sweaters is great for #1 winter essential has been this red and black buffalo plaid top.  It has been, by far, the most warn item in my closet this season. I can't get enough of it!

    It was a fairly warm day today so I paired it with some short booties and the turquoise bracelets for a pop of color. 

     I wore this outfit to the *gulp* surgeon's office today.  Lately, I have gradually lost the ability to eat ANYTHING without severe pain in my right side.  It is looking like my gallbladder is the prime suspect. It will most likely have to come out soon so I can eat again without pain.  Yeah, remember a few posts ago when I was complaining about my clothes not fitting?  Not a problem anymore (but also not a fun way to lose weight)!

I bought this ring as a "happy" for myself (combining a 25% coupon and my vault points for a killer discount of course!).  Gave me something to look forward to in the mail while not feeling so hot.

What is your winter essential this year?

MLK Weekend

For the 3 day weekend, my husband, brother and I drove up to Colorado (Around a 2 and a half hour drive).

We had a great time with my Aunt and Uncle in their gorgeous mountain town.  There was still some snow on the ground from the last snow storm and of course plenty of snow on the mountain tops.  I have a few outfit photos to share as well as some pictures from our adventures over the weekend. 

First up, my outfit from Sunday morning...
My goal with this first outfit was to be warm and somewhat dressy for church Sunday morning.

Sunday afternoon my Uncle and I went snow shoeing.  Off came the sweater and boots and on with the hat, coat and snowshoes!
It was a fantastic afternoon for a trek up to a scenic ridge in the snow and of course we were rewarded with this gorgeous view of the San Juan Mountains.

Kristine's Kravings

While home sick the last few days I have stumbled upon many items that are making me ogle...

So here it is, Kristine's Kravings:

#1. First up is the gorgeous CZ Infinity Stainless Steel Charm Bracelet from Freshtrends. I love how small and dainty this piece is..not only can you wear it stacked with other bracelets but it is also a stand alone bracelet. 

#2 on my list is this American Eagle Henley Sweater.
I love the cozy look of this sweater along with the "outdoorsy" look.  It would also make a fantastic layering piece under a flannel top, blazer, or chambray top. 

#3 on the list is this pair of Converse shoes from 6pm (click for coupons!)
I love the washed out burgundy color of this pair would pair perfectly with a pair of boyfriend jeans or rolled up skinny jeans for a casual, laid-back look. 

 #4 and lastly on my list is this thin cross ring. This is one piece of jewelry I have had my eyes on for quite some time now.  I love how thin and delicate this style of ring looks along with the crystal pave inlay.  Found a ring almost identical  on Baublebar (HERE)! Click the pic for coupons! Comes in 3 different colors. 

I hope you enjoy my finds!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

2014 was a FANTASTIC year!  I graduated college....again, landed a great job working in my new field, went on a trip to Europe.

Here's to 2015!  
One of my resolutions is to be a more active blogger.  I do enjoy blogging and just need to find a time when it's not pitch black outside to take my pictures.  I am currently in that post-trip/post-holiday funk where my clothes are not fitting comfortably. The blog pictures will hopefully pick up once I can fit back into the clothes I want to wear!
