In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd throw in some pinks and reds to an otherwise neutral-heavy look. This is about as girly as it gets for me most days (though, my new favorite pink pencil skirt would beg to differ). I love the simplicity of layered shirts, and the pops of red were just right. My hair, on the other hand? Well, let's just say I've learned a lesson in hair hubris -- don't publicly proclaim you've found the perfect solution to taming your unruly mane; you're just asking for a bad hair day. 

PS. Signs for reserved parking or instructing me to not block a fire door? Apparently, I'm all for ignoring them when blogging is at stake. 

PPS. I thoroughly recommend you watch this animated short, "The First Valentimes Day... That I Don't Believe!" from the folks at Written By A Kid. It makes me cackle each time.
