La La Love You!

Happy Valentine’s Day! We decided to do a combined post this week since we are celebrating our blogiversary, Valentine’s Day and linking up with Fancy Friday!

JESSI

Happy Valentines Day kitties! I love dressing up with a special occasion in mind, so I really had fun putting this outfit together. I pretty much grabbed a bunch of the most girly, lovey-dovey items in my closet, piled them on and voila!
The heart in my hair is actually a shoe clip that Mar handmade me a few years ago for Christmas, and it so happens to double as a super cute hair pin!
I was hoping to unearth some heart tights from the tights abyss in my closet, but when I came across these adorned with bows I was happy to avoid heart overkill.

This dress is a real gem that I actually don’t wear too much. It’s very sheer and therefore not super practical for winter and also hard to pull off in summers sans tights. But this was the purrrfect occasion!

I hope everyone is having a lovely love day whether with your partner, friends, family, or even just you doing you… Enjoy it!

MARLENA

I think I might actually wear this cardigan every Valentine’s Day. I’ve had it forever, it’s warm, and… well, there are hearts on it! It’s a little long and I was losing the shape of my waistline so I decided instead of a belt I’d just tie it up. I love this dress! We actually featured it on our Favorites: Thanksgiving post and Mom got it for me for Christmas! Genius. If it had a been a tad warmer out maybe I would have taken off the cardi so you could have seen the GIANT BOW on it. BOWS! I love ’em.

As a bright-eyed college student I used to hate the commercialism behind Valentine’s Day, it’s owned by Hallmark, blah blah blah. I’ve since given up on all that because once you do, you open your world to presents, a fun date night, and PRESENTS! Joe spoiled me this year with some beautiful diamond earrings, and I spoiled him with a new record player! And tonight Joe’s mom is coming to babysit and we’re going on a lovely little date to Alba for dinner and then who knows what else?

  2. I agree with Zhenya, you are both adorable! Just like cute cupcakes (fitting that you both have them in the last pic lol) that are delightful and decorative! Plus you’re both very strong to take pics n the cold – kudos!

    Thanks so much for participating today, I’ve saved the top pic and link and updated my post with the shoutouts alongside the other bloggers to help promote the theme and all of our blogs 🙂
