17 Ways to Think Pink

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun

Hello, Pink!

I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, and something tells me it had to do with the constant presence of tabby fur on my person, but somewhere along the way, my closet became the Novato version of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Literally. Like almost everything in there is a shade of gray or black.

There are a few occasional bursts of color here and there, but I’d say that 80% of the clothes in my closet are gray…

I walk around dressed like a storm cloud of doom.

So when I opened my closet this morning and looked through all the gray shirts and pants, that was it! Something snapped. I decided I’m done wearing so much gray.

But why all the gray in the first place? Well, it’s not that I’m afraid to wear colorful clothing. Not at all. I love colorful clothes! The problem is…so does the cat hair! But my tabby’s fur doesn’t stand out on gray.

One day, hopefully soon, I’ll be able to open my closet doors and see a bright explosion of happy, fun colors that reflect how I feel on the inside — like a turquoise pegasus with a rainbow mane flying across a cloudless blue sky. :)

Or something like that.

pinkI’m starting by gathering inspiration, and I found a ton of it today in the form of pink while I was cruising the Nordstrom website. Pink is one of my favorite colors to wear. Vibrant hot pinks, soft baby pinks, sultry coral pinks — if it’s pink, chances are I’ll want to wear it.

I put a bunch of things in my cart today that I desperately want have no intention of getting (yeah, you don’t even want to see the total, LOL!), but ya know how it is… Window shopping. And thinking.

Maybe there’s something here I could get… Maybe just one thing??

Haha!

Latest Shoe Obsession: These Leopard-Print Flats From DSW

Published in: Fashion, Video

There’s nothing like a new pair of shoes to make you feel like you conquered the world, and these are my newest pair. And I love them, love them, love them! They’re my reward for making it to the end of the week in one piece.

Hey, sometimes you just gotta reward yourself for crossing the finish line. :)

What are you up to tonight? If it’s high energy fun, I will be with you in spirit, but me — I’m kind of tired today, so I’m gonna take it easy and grab some dinner.

I may or may not be going back to Super Duper again because I’m craving that veggie burger hardcore… Maybe this time I’ll actually snap a picture of it before I inhale it. After that, the movies to see A Most Violent Year.

Have a great night, whatever you’re doin’.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

On days when I look like this…

Dear world, I’m completely responsible and have all my ish together!

…inside, I usually feel like this:

Wha?

LOL! You know what they say. Fake it till you make it.

So, today my main driving focus has been Designer Shoe Warehouse.

I really, really want to go look at sandals, so I sort of scheduled my entire afternoon around it.

And because it’s DSW, and I love DSW with a burning hot passion, I want to wear something with a little flair (woman cannot live on stretchy skinny jeans and cat t-shirts alone).

You can’t take yourself too seriously when you’re wearing a bright, fun color like this.

I mean, you could…but it would be difficult. Reddish coral, which I love wearing in the summer with a tan, isn’t exactly compatible with “fussy.”

Although I like how these shoes look with the outfit, my feet are utterly killing me in these pics — hence, part of the reason I want to go to DSW today.

I’d love a pair of comfy gold sandals to wear with this dress (my birthday present from El Hub), and I don’t currently have any comfy gold sandals that I can actually walk in.

I’m hoping to find a pair I can dress up with this dress, and dress down with dark denim.
