Pop goes my heart

Soo I'm not sure what happened, but these pinks matched a lot better in real life.  This is the first time I've worn either of these pieces on my blog (they've both been sitting in my closet for about a year), and I never thought about putting them together before, but I wanted to try it -- and I figured that Valentine's Day would be my only opportunity to do so!  Peplums are kind of past their prime at this point (though I still wear them occasionally because they're flattering on me), but this skirt kind of needs one.  It's too much of a straight cut for my frame without one, but who could resist these heart-shaped pockets?  This skirt definitely used to be looser on me though, so after I gorge myself on Valentine's Day candy this week, I really need to get a handle on my bad eating habits.  However, that is a worry for another week, as I am not about to abstain from pure goodness, i.e., Reese's hearts.

I just can't help loving a goofy purse, and this one is no exception.  I haven't used it a whole lot, but it's such a cool piece!  I'm pretty sure this is a knock-off version, but I can't remember.  It looks especially good in photos.  The only bad thing is that it doesn't hold very much, and I usually carry my whole life around in my purse.  But it's perfect for when I don't need to be at least semi-practical!  I was searching for song titles to go along with this outfit, and I was reminded of a particular song from the movie Music and Lyrics (which I haven't seen in a while, but love) that fits splendidly...

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. Okay, that skirt has the funnest 60s vibe!

  2. Isn't it funny how things match better in certain lights?! aaaugh it's like trying to match certain reds to other reds can be SO frustrating sometimes! But I think all matches well here, and that skirt is absolutely precious on you, Sammi! Seriously, what a cute piece. :D!

  3. How cute are those pockets!? Alex

  4. Love this lovey-dovey outfit!! You are all set for love-day!! And bad eating habits... don't we all have to tackle those? I think I'll jump on board with you and save that for another week as well!

    PS, I've nominated you for the Liebster award. If you want to participate, the deets are on my blog. :)

  5. Fantastic:)) x

  6. That bag is fantastic and I adore the little heart shaped pockets <3

  7. I'm so in love with that bag! I want to be a cartoon!!!

  8. You are seriously the cutest little snow bunny that ever lived. And that bag looks like you're about to hop in a car with Jessica Rabbit and find out Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and I mean that in the BEST way because it. is. ADORABLE.


  9. I love that song! The music video is SO FUNNY!

  10. I've been wanting one of the Jump from Paper bags for a good few months now. They just look so strange and fun! I really like the peplum on you, it's suits you! I've yet to wear any, I'm just not a fan of the peplum part at the bottom. It's nice to change things up a little especially if it a piece you really like even if it isn't your usual style.
