Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and even though I’ve always been a single lady on a day celebrating romance, I can’t help but love it. I get caught up in all things red, pink, and pretty, and I love the excuse to hang out with some of my favorite gal-pals. For today’s look, I wanted to show you how I created a Valentine’s appropriate outfit from my capsule. Including one or two statement pieces in your wardrobe can help to stretch it across special occasions and events. And read on to the end of the post for my Valentine’s Day shopping guide, full of all kinds of pretty things from cruelty free lip colors to made in America frocks.
I’ve never dealt with a hatred for Valentine’s Day as a single person- I just use it as excuse to embrace everything pink, floral, and Victorian. Also I may or may not eat a lot of chocolate. I love the excuse to send something handmade to people I love, and today I’m sharing some of my ideas for handmade cards!
Hi friends! I hope you’re week was wonderful! For me, it was one of the busiest school weeks I’ve ever experienced. I was exhausted by the end of it, but had a wonderful weekend recuperating and gearing up for the new week. In spite of the business, I was able to get my photos taken for the week- while I would consider one a bit of a dud. 😉 2-8-15: These bushes on campus have been blooming in the past week reminding how much I’ve missed color this winter. 2-9-15: A hectic week requires tea. Lots of tea.2-10-15: My school hosts a week called Christian Focus Week every spring semester, and one night during the week is always devoted to worship, coffee, and painting. They were out of brushes, so this was done with coffee stirrers! 2-11-15: One of my projects for the week was finishing a research paper on women and the Hindu religion for my World Religions class. I also presented the paper this week which was scary, but a great experience! 2-12-15: Pretty yarns in Valentine’s hues. 2-13-15: This is the picture I consider a bit of a fail. I meant to take one on my camera, but realized today the only photo I took was on my phone and was of a ton of food my roommate and I bought/made. Keepin’ it real y’all. This was our Friday night with the addition of Netflix. No we did not eat all of this. 😉 2-14-15: This year I had a blast participating in Meredith’s Sheepish Heart Bomb! I made three crochet hearts and put them out and about around my campus. The rest of my Valentine’s was spent exploring a new bakery, doing homework, watching kiddos at church, and watching The Breakfast Club with my roommate. A pretty great day if you ask me!
I’m linking up with Natasha this week!
What about you friends? What did you do for Valentine’s day?
