*J*'s Pink Blush

Happy Tuesday everyone. It's been a while since I've done an outfit post so please bear with me. Also my photographer (i.e. my husband) hates the cold and didn't want to take the pictures anywhere other than here. These pictures were also taken at the end of the day which is why I look like i'm not wearing any makeup and my hair looks a little stringy. No excuses, just laying out the facts.

So for a Monday outfit and our first weardrobe post I decided to take a bright pink dress and layer over it a paler pink sweater. Throw in a scarf and tights and you got yourself one banging outfit. Or at least one that didn't take too much thought on a cold Monday morning. Now the countdown begins...4 more days to the weekend. Cheers!


Meet The Team

*J* - Jennifer was raised in a small town in the Northeastern part of Michigan. She loves the big city life and enjoys all that a big city has to offer. She has an interest in many things including fashion, design, cooking, and crafting (especially when she can wrap something in yarn!). Although money has always been tight Jennifer has never let that stop her or hold her back when it comes to styling up her home, herself, or her life. Her tastes vary but she has a quick wit and a sarcastic sense of humor. Jennifer currently lives in a yarn-wrapped apartment house with her husband in Michigan. She one day dreams of living in an Anthropologie catalog.

*B* - Beck is from a small town in Upstate New York that nobody has ever heard of and now lives in a slightly bigger town that people still dont know about (though it's near a big city that a lot of people know about - but not that one). She is the mad scientist behind  Salt City Chains. Equally at home in the city or in "The Sticks", she has a wide variety of interests and an insatiable thirst for knowledge. She loves coffee, shoes, and the Adirondack Mountains. Beck currently lives in a ditch with her boyfriend, his two small children (twins), and one crazy cat. She wants to cover the world in chainmaille.

Jennifer and Beck can be contacted via Email and are also available on Twitter.

Hey guys, Jennifer and Beck here. Welcome to our new domain. We decided to come together to create a joint blog for all of you to enjoy. This blog is a little different from our previous blogs because it features a wide variety of things. This blog is meant to be dynamic, just like us, and as we change or become interested in other things so will this blog.

We also want you to have fun in your own life. Learning and growing is all a part of who we are as humans. We hope that you enjoy what we have to say and our view on the world but most importantly we hope to help you (and let's face it..even us) learn to love ourselves a lot more everyday. After all the blog is called L'Amour Propre! Oui!
