Valentines’ Day

I’m a sucker for holidays, no matter how commercialized they tend to be. Valentines’ Day is about love, surely, but it’s also a great excuse to eat candy and exchange little heart-shaped notes. What’s not to love? Even when I was single (with exception to a few angsty high school years), I couldn’t help but look forward to a day full of chocolates and heart-printed socks. After all, I always was the girl with pink and red braces. So, yes, I have a real Valentine this year…but love is just an added bonus to an already charming day.

We had a laid-back Valentines’ Day, which was much appreciated. Bobby tried to make me breakfast in bed, but I still wasn’t feeling too well, so I held out until lunch. We went to Song (Thai) for lunch, Junior’s for cheesecake (to go) and later, we cooked a great dinner full of comfort foods – quiche, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Basically, lunch belonged to Bobby and dinner belonged to me. I love my comfort foods, and Bobby would eat curry every single day, if given the chance. It was a nice compromise.

On him:

vintage cardigan, altered to fit – thrifted
shirt – h&m
tie – Hourglass Consignment (my mom’s shop)
jeans – target
boots – thrifted

On me:
red beret – flea market
red and black floral dress – reconstructed vintage housecoat. I took it in, gave it an elasticized waist, shortened the hem and banded the arm holes (I had to remove the sleeves because there was too much damage)
belt – thrifted
shirt underneath – Forever 21
textured tights – Gap
bow heels – Nine West

  1. I took care of my poor puking boyfriend. I guess we’ll have to post-pone our valentines day! (and my valentines day outfit…i love dressing up on holidays).
    Love this outfit and pretty much everything about your blog!

  2. What did you do for Valentines’ Day?

    My sister had a birthday party, I got a few roses here and there… simple stuff, no valentine though.

    P.S.: I’m glad that you and Bobby had a nice time, your outfit looked great! πŸ˜‰

  3. Aww you guys are so cute.

    Both my boyfriend and one of my best friends are in town this weekend for Valentine’s day, and it has by far been my best one ever. We’ve been eating out every day and just having a good time. Super awesome.

  4. You are really such a cute couple, it’s unbelievable. πŸ™‚

    I worked yesterday, but I’m not such a big fan of V Day anyways.(My BF is, though. Crazy stuff.)

    Love your blog!

  5. I made dinner for Glorie (who btw wants to meet you. she’s in town until mon night?) and her friends, also dess and her man is here. My friend jordan came by with some wine as well.

    I bought High school musical tattoo valentines for everyone, busted out a zac efron decorated heart shaped eileens cheesecake and finished the day by watching Hotrod.

    the end

  6. you two are absolutely adorable.
    since we’re in florida, we got breakfast and then laid out by the pool (it was around 77 degrees!)… I cooked him dinner and tried to make brownies (which turned out the consistency of gummy bears… Yeah, not so good haha)
    Then, we went to a lightening hockey game! I’m not a huge hockey fan, but it was really fun :] good day altogether!

  7. you are honestly the most beautiful couple i have ever laid eyes on,
    and you’re such a gorgeous, talented person.
    i wish you only all the best,
    and i can’t wait for the wedding pictures that’ll hopefully be coming in a couple years or so.

  8. I spent the day missing my love because he’s out in basic training out in Georgia, and I’m all the way in Colorado!!
    But my roomie brought me home tons of cookies and balloons to make me feel less alone since I was without my hubby.

  9. I work at an organic dessert shop, so the day was spent wrapping truffle box after truffle box, and putting pastries into boxes.
    Afterwards, I spent the evening with my boyfriend and our closest friends. We had a huge dinner, had a few glasses of wine, and sang along to a compilation album of love ballads that we downloaded just for the occasion. It was the best day ever!


  10. cute overload! your coupley pictures make me smile :).

    my other half actually lives in pa, about 3,000 miles away so i spent it with 2 of my favourite girlfriends this year. fresh crepes, a little shopping, dinner at guu, a little more shopping, and fresh frozen yogurt to round off the night. along with lots and lots of good conversation.

  11. Aww…you guys are so cute!

    I actually had an amazing V-Day! I told my friend Jordan that I’ve had 4 bad ones in a row, so he planned a night that involved a walk on the beach (sand he poured out in the honors center at school) a picnic (inside because it was raining), then we went dancing in the rain! These are all things I had told him I liked. It was perfect!

  12. You and Bobby look so happy and so in love! What a nice Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I went to brunch and shopped and Target and then came home to make a big meal (with cookies!). Valentine’s Day is just amped-up date night for us, but I still love it.

  13. Your photo’s look really professional, and these are sΓ³ cute! The first picture is very beautiful! And I’m really jealous about your clothes.. They’re so awesome!

  14. oh, you both look so cute! i don’t care that much about valentine’s day, but we had dinner at a restaurant the evening before. on valentine’s day itself we drove to ikea. (;
