My REAL Valentine’s Outfit

So, I will preface this by saying that I snapped these pictures outside of my office in like two seconds, but I just loved this shirt so much that I had to show it off. My friend bought these for all of us for V Day and I thought it was the best thing ever. So, I didn’t really dress up all cute or anything. This is what I really wore for Valentine’s.

Did you guys see this ad about the two sisters for the Olympics? Apparently they had to take it down because of something about competing sponsors (I don’t know…I didn’t understand it really to be honest and I don’t care about the sponsors), but I loved it. It seriously made me get teary.

Congratulations to Kate Greer! You won the $210 February CASH giveaway. Make sure to email to claim your prize!!!

I was so happy when I got this dress. I had seen it on a few people and was a little bit nervous because I hadn’t tried the leather trend out much (expect for a jacket here or there), but I am in love. It fits perfectly. is only $25. You are missing out if you don’t order it right now. It has panelling so it has the perfect amount of stretch and I’m just imagining all of the ways that I could dress it up or down.

Yellow in the Orange Grove

I wanted to post these photos because even though they were just part of our family photos, my friend Brooke is amazing. I’ve known Brooke since college when we lived together, so she came down to Redlands to do our family pictures before my little brother left on his mission. They are so beautiful. (I’ll post more family ones soon!) She did a few of me and I’m in love with them! It’s just a super basic outfit, but I just wanted to give her a shout out! She does all kinds of stuff, so if you need a photographer definitely look her up!

Valentine’s Date Outfit

Valentine’s Day is coming up and even though I don’t have a date I have the perfect dress…that’s technically all that matters right? Haha. I originally bought this for Christmas, but I bought a few things for Christmas, so I decided to save this and I think it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit. Cute, dainty, and red! AND…it’s on sale now! See below for the link! So…IF I had a date, this is what I would wear 🙂

I will most likely be going to see a movie with my girls, and get excited because my friend Cara got us the best shirts ever. They will definitely be on here. I really want to see Endless Love. What are you guys doing for V-day?
