Sorry for the crummy indoor photos, but it was just that kinda day... loathe to leave the house for fear of missing the UPS guy... the good news is that I now have a working camera again, which I shall take to the streets for outfit photos posthaste. 

In the mean time, can we talk about this crazy windbreaker? I almost squealed with glee when I saw the weird, butterfly-ish, boob-patch rosettes gracing a nylon rip-stop hoodie. I've always loved Valentino's rosettes, yet the often feel too delicate to me. This garment pairs the sweetness of tulle flowers with the action-packed world of SPORTS. 

With temps here nearing 90 and Valentine's Day approaching, I paired my new windbreaker with a lavender tank, black shorts and shoes for a look that's romance done my way: somewhat hectically, with unexpected twists, distressing, a bit of drama, and probably some physical labor.

Makes sense to me!
