These pictures were taken the day before Valentine's Day outside of a gas station.  Yes, a gas station.  Because there's nothing like making your fiancee multi-task pumping gas in the car and taking outfit photos.  Takes grunge fashion to the next level.  Well, not really.  But a girl can pretend right?

I know I've waxed poetic (well not poetic really, but whatever) about how weird it is to take outfit pictures in public sometimes.  I have to resist the urge to pick up my camera and run flailing my camera and tripod behind me if someone even opens a door in line of sight of me self photo taking.  I don't know what it was about that day, but I had no problem spinning in circles near the gas pump as he took pictures of me.  Maybe it was because he was making me giggle the whole time and I didn't realize other people thought I was being weird.  Or maybe spinning makes me so dizzy I can't see the stares.  Who knows? But you know what? I'll go with it.

Where has the year gone?  Are we seriously already more than halfway through February?  That's way too crazy.  This is about as close as I've gotten to getting on board the patterned jeans trend.  These are super comfy and still seem like something I can dress up or dress down.  I really want a pair of polka dotted ones, but I'm holding back because really, I don't need another pair of jeans. 

Where do you stand on the patterned jeans trend?  Share in the comments!

Sometimes I can't wait to wear something after I buy it.  This amazing Tartan skirt is one of those things.  I picked it up during the J Crew 40% final sale time in January and it reminds me of Catholic grade school times. And with all the colors in the plaid, it's incredibly versatile -- and made of wool to keep you warm to boot!  I had to take a picture of it before the day end, but the sun had gone down, so sad phone pictures in the fitting room it had to be.  Sorry about that!

January on Instagram

Yes, yes, I know it's already mid-February.  But whatever!  Here's what was on the tolookforstyle Instagram in January.

Friends, I am having quite the yellow, green and brown streak -- er, with clothes that is.  (Whoa...that was not intentional.  If you don't get it...don't worry about it). Anyway, kelly green and mustard reminds me of bright, citrus-y lemons and limes, which reminds me of summer and fun outdoors-y days. 

I also love this top because it's basically a fabulous girl who had no time to get herself fixed up in the morning (or alternatively, spent hours making her self look like she spent no time fixing her self up in the morning.  Defeats the purpose, really -- DON'T DO THAT!).   And she has hipster glasses.  It just makes me feel all warm and San Franciscan inside.

Travel Report: Paris

I know it's been over a month, but I wanted to share some of our highlights from Paris over the Christmas holiday.  It was so fast paced and we had so much we wanted to do, see and eat, that it was a literal whirlwind of activity?  (Well, not so literal there WAS a whirlwind.  You know, imaginarily literal...).

We had such an amazing time.  This is only 10% of the pictures we took! While not my favorite place on our trip, it definitely had the most history.
