To Actually Leave the House

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!

I hope your weekend was a bit more romantic than ours turned out to be.
I was beaten black and blue by the plague I mentioned on Friday.
It took a turn for the worse Friday night and didn't release its grip on me until late yesterday afternoon.
This left our Valentine's dinner reservation to some other happy couple.
I ate saltines, drank ginger ale and the handsome hubby was forced to fend for himself.
Although, I will admit the way hubby cared for me all weekend was pretty romantic.
He braved the possibility of contracting the plague himself by keeping me comfortable and happy.
That's romance, right?

And on the even brighter side, we get to celebrate next weekend!

Black & Blue
{only one usable picture today due to wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiindy conditions}
Polka Dot Dress; Black Cardigan
Navy Striped Belt
Blue Tights; Black Strappy Heels (similar)

Anywhoo, by the time I finally made it out of the house yesterday, I was black and blue.

No black AND blue in one look is a rule that I used to follow religiously.
But I realized yesterday that the black and blue rule is something I've left far, far behind me.
Will you join me in considering that rule to be the suntan pantyhose of our rule book?
Let's consider it something we used to worship but will no longer be invited to play a part in our personal style.

Which are more frightening to you, navy + black looks or suntan pantyhose?

Okay, OK, maybe we got two pictures...


You're welcome.

I couldn't spell in my last comment :)
I'm loving the picture of you and the Bieb.
I must admit that I personally love black and blue together, but suntan pantyhose not so much :)

You need help, but you're funny and I'm glad you're feeling better! I always think it's sweet when the hubby takes care of me when I'm sick - very romantic (though blowing snot and feeling like you've been hit by a truck does a great deal to kill the romance!). ;-) Happy Valentine's Day - we're eating a Papa Murphy's Take-and-Bake heart-shaped pizza tonight for our stay-at-home celebration. Yum! :-)

cute outfit! I think it looks great.

Elizabeth said...

This outfit is adorable and I love the dress! I have left the black-and-blue rule long behind me as well, but I still follow a black-and-navy rule -- I get nervous that people will think I tried to wear all black and just messed up!


Lise Marie said...

black and blue work! I am wearing it as I sit at my desk right now. Suntan hose? Not so much.
Glad you are feeling better and how sweet is you husband to brave the germs and be with you!

Olivia said...

Ha ha ha ! I am loving the Bieber pic! You're so great!

Kimberellie said...

Very cute outfit. And yes, let's do away with the navy and black rule. Not that I followed it anyway. But still, gone it is! As for suntan pantyhose, is that what those dreadful things are?? I could never understand them. They are supposed to fake a suntan? SHIVER. creepy.

Also, yeah for feeling better!

Suntan pantyhose? OMG no! I never wear pantyhose. Hate them with a passion. You look so cute in the windy picture and I'm really liking the polka dot dress! Here's to next weekend you having a blast! Glad you feel better!

Suntan pantyhose, oh no. No.NO.

You and BIEBER! I lOVE it! Did you see him on The Daily Show?
You and Emery both were sick on Valentines! That sucks! But both of you thought it was romantic being cared for.
You're so gracious. I would've been PISSED to be sick. I hope you're going to have pics of your Valentine's day take 2.
