A Tale Of Endearment...

Hat- Santa Cruz Hat Co, Coat- Nordstrom Rack, Dress- Betsy Johnson,
Necklace- Self Made, Bracelets- Coach, Rings- Vintage, Bag- Coach,
 Boots- Hunter



      I thought since Valentine's Day is this Thursday I would share an idea of what I might end up wearing. My special someone and I are planning on going out for breakfast instead of dinner this year and taking in a nice long walk by the shore. I picked up these refurbished emerald green Hunter rain boots at Nordstrom Rack for a mere 46 bucks and I believe them to be perfect for galavanting around in the puddles and sand of the damp seaside of Santa Cruz. With Spring fast approaching (or maybe I am just crossing my fingers so tightly), I love the idea of wearing floral prints with jewel encrusted insects. I unearthed a couple bug brooches at the De Anza flea market in San Jose and I thought they paired well with the Amber insect necklace I made. I hope the sunny and bright weather we have been experiencing in this corner of the world continues through Valentine's Day! 









      My boyfriend, Shahin, and I have been together for nearly two years now and I thought since love is in the air this week, that I would share the story of how we met. I was out and about one evening walking downtown with my close friend Paris and I see this handsome gentleman walking towards us. I use the word gentleman because he was dressed in slacks, a button up, tie, and blazer along with perfectly coiffed hair. Not too many people in my town of granola eating hippies (I count myself among them) wear such pulled together attire. As he closed his approach, he confidently tossed his hair (I wish I could show you an impersonation I do), extended his right hand and said "Hello, my name is Shahin." To which I romantically responded with "Your name is Sha-What?!" Needless to say, he should thank his lovely mother for giving him such a unique name that sparked a great conversation!

Yours,
Nico

  1. What a cute story! And yes, I would agree Shahin would probably stand out in that outfit where you live ;)
    I adore your flirty, romantic and very Valentine's Day appropriate outfit. Have a great breakfast - what a darling idea to do breakfast instead of dinner.

  20. Nico, that is so cute how you met! I love when a man comes to a woman (that means he wants her) and not the other way around. He is GORGEOUS and you two look awesome together! I'm so happy for the both of you. Breakfast sounds awesome! I so prefer it over dinner. Have a Happy Valentine's Day! HaHaHa LOVE your Hunter boots (what a great price), dress and insect brooches (i'm a fan of them and need to add some to my jewelry). Is that a Coach pink bag? I LOVE IT! I have a Coach straw bag, but I'm loving all of the cool crossbody one's in various cool colors. Ahhh, the jewels & gems! HAHAHA The "chocolate indulgent" ones are smoky quartz and some are "chocolate" diamonds. The purple ones are amethyst.
