Love In Itself

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and those of us in the San Diego Style Bloggers community are showing how we do up the day.  I saw a segment on Refinery 29 on how Aimee Song (of the blog Song of Style) styled boyfriend jeans (article here).  She paired them with an oxblood colored tuxedo jacket, a simple t-shirt and fantastic heels.  I took note and borrowed her style for something that I would wear for a quiet dinner out with my husband.  I decided to add a bit more shine by layering rhinestone necklaces, but kept my edge with the studded clutch.   Also, I must bring special attention to the beautiful lace-up pumps that I got over the weekend during the first day of the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration.  I don’t know what it is about shoes, but I fall in love with a new pair a few times a month, and I am completely enmoured with these lovelies.  Hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow with their special someone!

The Next Big Style Blogger: My Contest Entry to Refinery 29!

I entered a contest for “The Next Big Style Blogger” on Refinery 29 (see the contest information here).  I submitted the “Upcycle & DIY Chic” post as my contest entry because I believe that upcycling and DIY is becoming something fashionistas are looking more towards to make their wardrobe more creative and relevent to the importance of saving our environment. 

I’m not sure what part the voting aspect plays into this contest, but you can also vote if you would like by clicking the banner above to find my entry on the Refinery 29 site.  You must have a Facebook account to vote, so any Facebook fans of Any Second Now, please log in and vote for me!

Here is what the winner will receive, which sounds like fun and will be a fantastic experience:

Also, contestants were asked to add a 15 word personal style tagline.  I wanted to create one that included the fact that I am a new mom who doesn’t want to forget that I can still be stylish and creative.  Here is the tagline for my blog that I submitted.  I think that’s going to be my new mantra for Any Second Now:

Mixing creativity, artistry, leisure, and fun with motherhood to create a full & fashionable life!

I will be adding the badge below to my sidebar next week.  Wish me luck and again thanks for all of your support!
