Sometimes when I try out a new outfit I play the “cute or crazy?” game with my husband. This is usually dropped on him like a pop quiz, early in the morning when he is good and fuzzy. This is actually a terrible strategy now that I type this out, I mean we have a steadfast rule of not asking each other important questions in the morning (I’m a morning person so everything is great! He is not a morning person so everything is meh.) Anyways, I played this fun game while getting dressed today. I had about 4 renditions of outfits with this top. I finally settled on mixing it up with this floral skirt. I mean this skirt means business with this print, so I might as well draw attention to the whole outfit right? No need to be subtle when it comes to prints. (For the record, this outfit got the ‘cute’ and not ‘crazy’ approval.)

I got a new phone yesterday. We have always had insurance on my phone (because of things like water, fire and pancake syrup) so I thought I’d run in and make a direct trade. Oh no, that did not happen. Instead I got talked into an upgrade. (Trust me this wasn’t a hard thing to do.) I am now the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which is basically like a phone + tablet. This means it is kind of humongous and I love it. As I was looking through all of the phone options yesterday I was pulling up Pinterest just to see how it looked on the phone of choice. (Remember, Pinterest relies on my phone so this is important to test.) My husband was talking to the sales person about billing, prices, etc. and looked over at me and called me out. “Are you on Pinterest?!?” However, I’m proud to report that Pinterest on a huge screen is amazing. If you ever can’t reach me by phone, it’s because I’m ignoring your calls and pinning.

  1. Congrats on your new phone! I have the Galaxy S3 mini and it’s hands-down the best phone I’ve ever owned. (My one criteria was Instagram, but Pinterest was a close second.) Also, definitely cute and not cray at all!

    1. I know the sweet sales rep asked me what I use my phone for… “um…well, social…” she knew immediately what that meant πŸ˜‰

  2. I love the outfit, but doesn’t it drive you crazy when the stripes don’t match on the seams? My mom taught me never to buy a shirt that doesn’t have matching patterns at the seams because it means that it’s poor quality. Keeps me from a lot of cute tops, but I can’t not abide by it! lol

    1. It does but only when I see photos of it! Otherwise I never notice, ha. But yes, that is a pet peeve of mine to! You definitely get what you pay for πŸ˜‰

  3. Your husband made the right choice – this is definitely a winner. I play a similar game with my boyfriend, but even when he chooses “crazy,” I wear it. I’m stubborn like that πŸ™‚ xx http://www.clutch-style.com

  4. I love this and all your outfits! I saw the Target link and I was like, nice! Something I can afford. I love all of your outfits, but typically each items is between $100-200, and I can’t afford a ~$800 outfit every day. I would LOVE to see more items from Target, Express, etc. Thanks so much!

  5. Your husband and my husband would be friends. Meaning they’d be shaking their heads at us as we went on Pinterest to inaugurate our brand new cell phones. Boys just don’t understand πŸ™‚

  6. I love where your head is at with your new phone. I can’t even begin to explain my love for Pinterest so it’s nice to hear I’m not alone

  7. Love this outfit and totally jealous…every time I try to mix prints in an outfit, my husband says I look like I’m clashing on purpose πŸ™

  8. I learned very quickly to not ask the boyfriend what he thinks because its typically not what I want to hear.

  9. I have a Samsung phone (the Galaxy S4) and I love it πŸ™‚ it does pretty much anything and everything I could ever ask for. I’m also really big on the stripes + florals combo – it doesn’t always work, but when you get the patterns right it looks so great.

  10. I need NEED this skirt in my life… Please and thank you skirt fairies!

  31. I like how daring the new dress is! For me, it’s certainly on the adorable side of insane. For those who are concerned about preserving those vivid hues, your greatest buddy is a high-quality washing machine with a gentle cycle. It will prevent your standout items from fading and keep them looking new!
