Saturday was perfect. I woke up, made breakfast for Kendall and I, and headed to Cera to start my beautification for my wedding in April. He spent that time suit shopping and found his suit for the wedding! Things are moving quite along.

I’ve been getting cabin fever in the worst way with the weather we’ve been having. I feel like a cooped up kitty in a carrier, caught between wanting to get out and wanting to stay where it’s nice and warm and cozy. Even just going for a wax, I wanted to look nice. I actually wear this sweatshirt dress to work with tights, but I hate wearing tights sooo that was not going to happen. I actually consider my boots kind of tights since they cover most of my legs.

As I was running out the door, I texted Kendall- I wanted to FINALLY use my new camera outside and get some outfit pics when we both got home. Way overdue. It was just our luck that it had just started snowing and made for some nice pictures in my teddy bear jacket. My “uniform” changes from flats and a t-shirt dress in summer to boots and a sweatshirt dress in the winter. I have a look. (A look that made it easy for Sarah to spot me from across DuPont Circles as we were both running late for work one morning.)

But let me tell you about my teddy jacket. I’ve wanted one since October but I couldn’t find one I loved for a reasonable price. This gem was an Amazon find that I got when my boss very sweetly gave me a gift certificate for Christmas. It look for.ev.er. to come in, but the wait was worth it. The perfect rose color and so soft! And sorry for all the pics in this post. We were just so excited to play with this camera and do this shoot!

This weekend is all about love. It’s Kendo’s birthday and we’re going to my parents’ for a steak dinner and staying there before heading back to DC to do… whatever he wants! I didn’t get to spend his birthday with him last year because he had drill so this is actually his first birthday that we get to spend together. He’s also been working night shifts so I’ve rarely been able to see him during the week.

Conversation Heart Earrings

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

If only this Pink Confetti Sequin Skirt was still available in my size!

I love Stella & Dot for their jewelry but I’m also loving this Crush It Bag. Unfortunately, it’s sold out right now but it’ll be back in April!

My all-time favorite nail color is nowhere to be found online in Gel. Let’s Be Friends was unfortunately a limited edition Hello Kitty/ OPI collaboration, but this might be a pretty decent dupe nail polish. What do you think?

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

I’m not sure if you’re aware (I wasn’t until recently) but “Disney prohibits anyone over the age of 14 from sporting a costume in its parks, because it has the potential to infringe on the official characters that Disney employs”. (Thank you Refinery 29). I actually dated a former cast member handler for a while, and he told me I’d be a shoe-in for Alice/ Tinkerbelle, so I guess I can see this. However, you can Disneybound.

If you’ve never heard of the term Disneybound, let me educate you really fast. Starting on Tumblr in 2012 and becoming a mainstream concept since, it’s essentially creating outfits inspired by your favorite Disney characters, be it from a movie, ride, what have you. You can check out the original blog here.

I actually get kind of annoyed at adults that are SO OBSESSED with Disney. Like, yeah, Kendall and I call our apartment Pride Rock and I’d like to go to Disneyworld for my 30th birthday but some of it is all just cliché to me. I’m just not a huge fan of the actual Disney princesses. I was kind of fond of Aurora from Sleeping Beauty because of her dress that changed colors at the end, but really, until the mid/ late 90s the princesses were almost totally useless. Incidentally, my sister’s favorite princesses were Pocahontas and Jasmine- two of the less damsel-y options.

I said it before on Little Bitty City One, but the animals were really what I loved. Especially the cats. Oliver & Company, A Goofy Movie, Aristocats, Lion King… those were my favorites! (Alice in Wonderland too but again, not a princess.) I also dragged my Grandaddy and Gramma Dee around Epcot until I found a stuffed Figaro from Pinocchio to bring home with me in 4th grade.

The reason why I wanted to Disneybound my girl Marie is that I think she best mirrors me. She’s small and sassy, looks great in pink, is kind of a show-off, and doesn’t like to be told what to do. She’s also a bit of a whiner and a mama’s girl.  Yup. I’m Marie.

If you were a Disney character, which one do you think you’d be?

I’ve been kind of mushing about Valentine’s Day for a couple of weeks now, and I’m so thrilled that January is finally over and February is here. This month, it’s Kendall’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, my shower/ bachelorette party, and my dad’s birthday. And no leap-year this year (I just checked) so February is going to fly. Clearly, I had to do a pink on pink on pink theme for this month’s wish list!

  1. One of my favorite perfumes now comes in PINK. Didn’t think the bottle could be any cuter than the original but here’s MOSCHINO Moschino Pink Fresh Couture.
  2. My bridesmaids poo-pooed the kate spade new york Lotus Slip-On Sneaker as a wedding shoe, but they all agreed that the classic car nod to my granddaddy would be cute for the rehearsal dinner or after party.
  3. I just got a new phone. (RIP 6s) Maybe a cute new Portable Charger to go with it?
  4. The reviews for Too Faced Glow Job Radiance-Boosting Glitter Face Mask aren’t stellar, but between the cheeky name and the fact there’s glitter in it I think it would be fun to try. I’m also very into (probably because of the packaging) their:
  5. Diamond Light Multi-Use Diamond Fire Highlighter and
  6. Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush
  7. Rox got a Baby G watch in a review box and I was reminded how the cool girl freshman year of high school had one. Especially loving the BABY-G G-Shock ‘Ana-Digi’ Resin Watch.
  8. Totally typical Caro. Halogen + ruffles- Halogen Velvet Ruffle Top.
  9. Honestly I’d never given Ted Baker bags much of a though until I snagged the perfect black tote from the Nordstrom sale a couple years ago but their bags are stunning! Super into this extra af Icon Faux-Pearl and Crystal Large Tote.
  10. The Sadie sunnies in pink on pink have be discontinued so they’re under $10!
  11. Let’s honest, this Free People Bell Sleeve Swing Dress is going to be a hit or miss. I’m def going to order to try it on though!
  12. Between Etsy, Picmonkey, and Zazzle, I have DIYed quite a bit for my wedding. This includes stationary of all kind and t-shirts for my bachelorette party/ getting ready on the big day. This Mrs. Price Sweatshirt is my most recent creation and I feel like even though it is somehow extra and basic, I kind of need it.

What’s on your February wish list?

Happy Friday! I’m here for this weekend for. real. Especially excited for Kendall to come home and for birthday celebrations/ girls’ night out. Saturday’s going to be a good night for me. Happy birthday Marisa & Juju!

 

Happy Birthday Banner

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

While I really do like the frankincense oil moisturizer I got from Etsy, I’m not a huge fan of the packaging and Kendall thinks it smells like food. Not really what I’m going for. However, I found an Organic Facial Moisturizer that is under $10!

My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw this Rainbow Pendant Bib Necklace.

I don’t even know if Kendall is going to be here for Valentine’s Day but if he is I’ll need to rock this White Heart Pattern Mohair Knit Sweater.

 

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

Around the internet

I’m always looking for a bargain, and I can personally vouch for some of these 29 Beauty Products Under $10 That Are Actually Worth Your Money. (And I’ve added a few to my wish list) via Buzzfeed

I usually don’t get excited about makeup (although I do appreciate cute packaging) but Jeremy Scott and MAC Created Your Dream Beauty Mixtape. via Cools

Some details of this Wedding That Brought Ibiza to New York and Broke All the Rules were were stunning, but some I could do without, personally. What do you think? via Coveteur

An updated Ramen & Pho Guide for DC… you know for when it freaking snows again next week. via Brightest Young Things

I kind of cringe when grown women are too into Disney, but OHMYGOODNESS these Disney inspired gowns by Paolo Sebastian are absolutely stunning and so not literal. 10/10 would wear the whole collection.
