Apparently I had a little left over Valentine’s spirit in me, with my little red belt and heart print dress. Somehow (I’m still not sure exactly how) I managed to pull this outfit together after literally getting no sleep the night before. Although I rarely manage to stay up literally all night (usually I end up falling asleep eventually), with two energy drinks in me, I was wide awake to spend the whole night writing a paper. I guess I should feel thankful that I’ve made it through a whole term and half of college and only had one true all-nighter.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I put together a subtle pink and red outfit. I don’t usually go all out in dressing for holidays, but this was both cute and comfortable for a long day of classes and essay writing. Plus I’m a huge fan of pairing stripes and florals together. They’re so effortless to style and yet they make such a fun statement.
Unfortunately, with my boyfriend and I living a couple hours away from each other, we won’t get to celebrate Valentine’s Day together today. However, we saw each other over the weekend and had a special date night complete with a walk in the park, a fancy dinner, and presents. He gave me the sweetest necklace (which my scarf is covering in the photos) and I put together a “10 Things I Love About You” package for him. It was so fun to celebrate our first Valentine’s Day together! The celebrating isn’t over yet though. We’re planning on seeing The Vow this weekend and I’m so excited!
I also had fun trying out a little nail art with a pretty Valentine’s Day at-home manicure. I layered a metallic magenta polish over a glossy hot pink polish and hand-painted a heart on my ring finger. Even though it’s not very visible, I still love the way it turned out!
