Peter and sparkles

Hello Beautiful people!!!!
The weather here on the east coast is brutal and this snow is really cramping my style. I nearly froze solid taking these picture. I'm trying hard to be winter appropriate but I can't help but to long for the warmer spring months. The bright aqua colors remind me of the tropics, which would be amazing to be in right now.
I was able to style another piece from my peter pilotto for Target collection. This is actually a dress which I am wearing as a top.
I hope you are all staying warm if you're dealing with the snow and if you are somewhere warm, I hate you. jk

"Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth."

The concept of regrowth and rejuvenation is one that has been swirling around my head for the past few months. 

This past weekend my car was broken into and some douche bag stole my camera (yes the brand new camera I got only one month ago). Initially, I was so upset and flabbergasted by this wondering "why does dumb shit like this keep happening to me?", but then I realized (after sulking for the whole weekend) that there are way worst thing that could happen to me. Last year this time, I had just come out the hospital after spending a month there for a ruptured appendix. Everyday above ground is truly a blessing and I really want to live my life remembering that no matter what happens to me. I will get my car fixed and get another camera but there is no other me and it could have been much worst. 

I don't really know why these things happen and I'm sure all of you have situations that make you wonder "why me?" but you must have rain to see a rainbow and you must go through winter to get to spring. This is only a minor set back (for you and for me). I am ready for my rebirth. 

Speaking of rebirth and spring, we had some amazing spring- like weather this weekend and I just had to take advantage. I wore this great floral print slip dress and lightweight trench to grab some brunch at Shaw's tavern with some of DC's fabulous bloggers. 

I'm really trying to give more meaningful content when I put up my blog post and I hope you all can appreciate it. Let me know what you think.

"No matter how you feel …. Get up. Dress up. Show up. And never give up." My sentiments exactly. We are now in the third week of February and I'm currently evaluating my goals and resolutions. I have been doing good but I can always do better. So today, I'm leaving you with this outfit post and the encouragement to keep on keeping' on and if you've strayed from your path, its never too late to get back on track.

Winter Floral

 Hello all!! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was pretty relaxing after a long week. I was able to check out target yesterday for the Peter Pilotto collection and grabbed a few things including this top. It was pretty cold out so I layered a vintage dress under it and I love the unexpected print combination.
Besides this top, I got a couple other pieces that I can't wait to style. What were you able to snag from the collection, I'd love to hear from you.

Hello All!! I was really hesitant to put these pictures up because they are all little more sexy than I usually dress but I guess I'm in a sexy mood this week because of the upcoming holiday and wanted to take a walk on the wild side. We were very fortunate last week to have a bit warmer weather than we have grown accustomed to so I decide to put this  outfit together to give some more inspiration for a V-day look. This look is sexy but not in a raunchy way. The sophistication factor is still there and though I show a lot of leg (I have high waisted shorts on as well), the rest of my body is pretty covered up. I actually got the top in the mens section of the thrift store so that it would be a bit oversized and cover my lady bits.

 I actually got the inspiration to put this outfit together by looking at some of the 2014 S/S designer collections. Speaking of collections, NYFW week starts tomorrow and though I  won't be there this season I will definitely be checking out the shows and even share some of my favorites looks. 
Please let me know what you this of this look and what you plan on wearing for Valentines day. As always , you can check out more great content on my Instagram @according2trish
