August Valentine

Today's outfit was totally planned so I could wear the only pair of earrings from my jewelry swap with CC that I haven't had the chance to wear yet.  They're red/pink and I used them as my muse for this look.  I never used to think of pink and red together until EBEW did pink and red for Valentine's Day this year and then I realized that these colors work well together.

The polka dots in this dress may have been white originally, but they don't look it anymore.  They actually look like a pale pink, so I realized this shrug I haven't work at all this year actually compliments it pretty nicely!

I also had to show you guys, I'm still in love with my Jenna Lou bag.  This is rare for me to have carried the same bag for over a week now and still not be tired of it!  Maybe I'm turning over a new leaf!!

And that's my story today.  I'm linking up with Callie from Coffee and Cardigans today for her Thrifter Thursday, as everything besides my accessories and sandals were thrifted.  Also, I could still use a couple of more guest posts for the week of August 13-17.  Let me know if you're willing to write a summery guest post!

  1. More polka dots...oh yeah! I don't know what it is about polka dots, but they sure make me happy :) This is another great outfit. I love the pink and red together. Way to make the most of the white, turned pink polka dots!

  2. That dress is a very pretty colour. I like it with the ballet dancer pink shrug.

  3. Love all the pinks here! You look awesome!

  4. You look so cute in this dress, Beth! :) Love! :)

  5. Thrifting magic in this post girl! I carry the same bag until it is too full of crap and then I move on to the next one. Haha!

  6. I love the color combination you have going today. Red and pink feel perfect for summer to me. Great thrifted items and thank you oh so much for linking up!


  7. LOVE your thrifed dress, so pretty :)

  8. Ohwow! Love this combo. That dress definitely begs to be worn more often. Bright colors look really great on you.

    Also confession time - I've been on the hunt for a new bag forever. I've found a dozen and a half cute bags that don't work for me, but I've really been looking hard at Jenna Lou's Madeline in Silver Piggy print, but I'm not sure if it's an everyday bag. I know you typically prefer more feminine designs, but I was wondering if you knew of any more US-based bag designers or had any opinions about wearing a print bag everyday.

  9. I am new to the red and pink combo as well! I do like it though when done right. You're outfit is super femenine, love it!
    (If you'd like I'd love to do a guest post for you too)

  10. You pulled off red and pink very well! :)

  11. This is super duper cute! I love the polka dots!

  12. Very pretty dress! Red looks great on you!

  13. I do so love red and pink together :)

  14. Very nice outfit. And I've been looking for a shrug just like this one, but they're hard to find in giant size.

  15. The pink and red combo looks so pretty. Another great outfit, Beth.

  16. Love your pink and red look! ;) I remember wearing a pale pink blouse with a long red skirt way back in college (late 90's) and getting some very strange looks. But I loved it anyway! ;)

  17. I love pink and got it just right. Dress looks gorgeous on you. Great fit and love the shape. Ruffles on the bag are too cute. Dawn suitcase vignettes xo


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
