All I got to say is right now my life is CRAZY right now and for some reason all the events decided to happen this week and next week. Work is the busiest time right now and I will be working this weekend, there’s blog conferences going on, dance parties, fashion weeks and blogger meetups galore.  Not to mention that Chinese New Year just happened so it was fun celebrating with friends and family.  But one upcoming I did want to tell you about is…

So I gotta say, this is a bit of a different look for me.  When I got these boot socks, at first I was thinking I would wear them under tall boots, but then I realized that would be hiding the fun design for them!  So… knee high socks with ankle boots it was and I am so in love.  I’m pretty stoked about this new way to wear knee socks and now that’s my new shopping obsession (oh boy!).   This outfit is perfect for this “is it Winter or is it Spring” type of weather we’ve been having lately.

Alt Summit blogger conference Salt Lake City 2015-9288

One of my favorite color combos is pink, grey and gold and this outfit has it all. One of my favorite patterns to mix is florals and polka dots and this outfit has got that too. I wore this outfit for the 3rd day of ALT Summit Winter a few weeks ago. The last time I wore this skirt I was actually 3 months pregnant with Vivian (but hadn’t announced it yet). And obviously as my belly grew I wasn’t able to wear this skirt again, so you can imagine my excitement when I pulled it out and realized that I could finally wear it again!  Love LOVE this skirt so much, makes me feel so very Carrie Bradshaw-esque!

If you know me, I always love a good deal.  I mean, come on, who doesn’t?  If I can save a little money here or there while shopping, then I’m all for it.  Groupon Coupons recently partnered with more than 8,000 retailers to create a service where you can over 55,000 free coupons and exclusive promo codes for stores like Macy’s, Target, Nordstrom’s, Forever 21, J.Crew and more!  The site is super easy to use as you can browse by store name or category.  I love browsing Groupon already for great local deals and hopping over to the Groupon Coupons is just a simple click away.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’ve created a little gift guide for her with items that can be purchased at Nordstrom’s (currently 19 coupons available) and Forever 21 (currently 11 coupons available).  Not only are these items good as Valentine’s Day gifts, but really any occasion!
