Burgundy Cowboy Boots, An Anorak and Valentine's Day Pretzel Wreaths

"Can I keep these to remember you by?"
Pigtails asked my mom, Fair Isle, holding up a bag of M&Ms.
We were getting ready to leave grandma's, where the treats flow in abundance.
Because at home I try to limit sugary snacks... To bribing.
Otherwise how else would I get them to clean up toys or get in the car?

EMBROIDERED DRESS - Forever 21 (swapped)
BLACK ANORAK - Last Chance Boutique
RED PURSE - B Makowsky
BLACK BOOTS - BCBGeneration (via Macys)

NECK SCARF - Made by my mom
BURGUNDY BOOTS - Goodwill (thrifted)

Polka Dot French Manicure Nails for Valentine's Day

Here are two outfits I wore today.  The first one I wore to church.  The dress was from a swap and thanks to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds, I paired it with an anorak and motorcycle boots.  The second outfit I wore to a 6-year old birthday party at Scooter's Jungle. 

Decorating Valentine's Day pretzel wreaths
with cookies, candy and white chocolate.

Our finished Valentine's Day pretzel wreaths.  Yum!

I'm still madly obsessed with nail art.  I change it up every few days.  It's a fun way to accessorize without spending much money.  To me it's the perfect treat!
