i've loathed pink for years. i will go out of my way to pick any different color if pink is an option on an item of clothing i want to purchase. but, i broke my own rules and i ordered the sleek sequin skirt in dusty cedar from downeast basics that i was lusting over(for $15, thank you for the head's up becca!). and i think pink may be making a comeback. 
jacket- target
maternity v neck- target
skirt- downeast basics
shoes- jessica simpson

*for the record, i ended up ordering the small. i was planning on waiting to wear it until after the baby was born but i couldn't resist trying it on. call me a glutton for punishment. surprisingly, this little puppy stretches like a DREAM. i wore it today and i felt like myself. snarky and full of heartburn.

for funnsies:
back in the day circa 2001 when i loved pink. this particular event was halloween, but really i just wanted to wear a bunch of pink. i lent that wig to someone to wear a few years back when they were feeling down and i never got it back. whoever that person is(i can't recall), is dead to me.

i've been working on a few home improvement/decor projects of late and for my home office i've been referring to this picture. and no, i don't pinterest. yes, i know it's wonderful. but i have plenty of other ways to waste time so i've made the conscious decision to not pinterest my time away. 
i think i would paint my walls pale gray(surprise) instead of white.

and i'm eyeing this for curtains(this print has been one of my favorite for years. i have pillows in the green version of this):
Waverly Cross Section Raspberry

or this:
Waverly Lovely Lattice Jungle

and this rug:

I haven't been on pinterest once either for the exact same reason. I know it will just be something to get sucked into and waste my time. And everyone else spends their whole life on it telling me every cute project I need to do for my future house, baby, kitchen, etc. I don't even need to go on there for myself ha ha

Those are exactly the ladylike pieces you were born to wear! Really, this is always what I like best on you. Imagine the pleasant surprise, all that ladylike business on the outside and your fierceness on the inside! Love it! :-D

I went to Doll House and had the worst experience of my life. I ordered a dress 3 months before my formal and it didn’t come in. she told me the dress was customized but was told a week before my formal that they could not do it and was told to chose another dress from the shop which upset me as I had my heart set on the dress I ordered. Thank you Doll House for destroying my only formal it was the worst time.
