Fashion Friday

It's been too long since I've done one of these and really, such a shame! I have so many gorgeous fashion photos courtesy of my love, pinterest. Here's some gorgeous valentines ensembles.

Valentines day is the perfect opportunity to rock the amazing color combo that is pink + red. It's also great for feminine lace, satin, and hearts. 
 Now, I've just realized I haven't a clue what i'm going to wear! For the girl who always gets a new Valentines Day outfit this is a big deal. I'm thinking heart tights, a girly dress, red and pink nails, and a headband. Must go shopping!

Cover me

I love natural light and I love our living room windows. However, I hate our vertical blinds. I'd like to get curtains to disguise those blind and to help keep it from getting too hot in here. We do live in Arizona after all.
I was looking forward to doing something with a fun pattern or some color (yellow or teal) but T said because they will be behind the tv they should be subtle and not distracting. Sigh.... that being said I'm looking at grey, or blue with a subtle print. I think we could do yellow too but would need a black out liner behind them. Unfortunately I'm having a hard time finding anything I like that is in our price range. $25 a yard is just a litttttle too steep.
I really wish I had a photo of the windows in the day light but here's some I like

I obviously love the grey Ikat, of course that's the print that's $25 a yard. I think my favorite are those sheer white with the yellow. I tend to be drawn to the sheer so maybe we will do that with a liner underneath?
