I hunted for these pants online, but they never had my size. I walked into the store one day, and these beauties were on super clearance. I like to think that's fashion fate. Yeah, it's a thing.
In honor of this day of love, here is one of Jeff's and my conversations last night:
Jeff: "Do you love me?"
Me: "Sure, I do...when you're not annoying me."
Jeff: "No no no...you still love me when I annoy you; you just don't like me very much."
God help me if we can have children and I end up with a mini Jeff.
Coat: Guess via Wilson's Leather Outlet

When I began planning my outfits for the red & pink themed week, I tried to vary the red items I chose from my closet. Admittedly, I could go at least another week or two with red items. I've got a red scarf, red necklaces, red wedges, red flats, red heels, a red turtleneck. And those are just some of my red items; don't get me started on other shades of red and its pale-skinned friend, pink.
Monday, I went with red pants with flannel, boots, and a blazer (is there anything better!?)
Tuesday, I opted for a red blazer, black pants, and a leopard print scarf.
Wednesday, for parent-teacher conferences, I chose my red blouse, striped skirt, and black blazer.
Yesterday, had school not been canceled, I would have worn my red skirt.
Today, I went low key and put on some red earrings. Now, if the snow would abate long enough for me to share a special Valentine's meal with my husband, that'd be super.
Also, if you follow me on Instagram, you noticed that I spent the better part of my morning skinnifying two pairs of my pants. In fact, the first pair (the khakis) is the pair I complained about in this post. I made 'em skinny. If you want a tutorial (from someone who is NOT a sewing guru), let me know! I don't want to spend the time writing the post if no one finds it useful. Seriously though, if I can do it, so can you.
