Valentine's Day

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I love Valentine's Day. I seize any opportunity it's socially acceptable to be overly affectionate, and Valentine's Day is definitely one of those occasions. 


This year I teamed up with my friends, Claire and Kitty, to shoot some Valentine's Day looks! There's this cute coffee shop within walking distance from campus (Idego Coffee), and we decided it would be the perfect shoot location. Plus, they have incredible vanilla lattes! 



Just a little roomie love! 
I'm going to miss living with Claire so much next year! I couldn't have asked for a better roommate. She really is the best! 


Kitty's outfit was perfection! Isn't she so chic? 






I purchased this J. Crew blouse almost two years ago, and it's hands down the most colorful piece I own. It's so much fun and also looks super cute with jeans! This time around, however, I styled it with my white corduroy pants from Banana Republic, and J. Crew brown heeled boots. 


Happy Valentine's Day!

The Travel Bug

When I was in middle school, my grandma gave me my first luggage set for Christmas. The suitcase and weekender bag were both the prettiest shade of purple and I was obsessed! Unfortunately, both pieces have seen better days. My weekender just recently tore along the seams while I was packing for the spring semester. I'm looking for a replacement, so I'm sharing some of my favorites below...

Staying Warm in January

Fleece-lined leggings, shearling-lined boots, fleece-lined flannel shirts... You name it, I own it.

I don't handle cold weather very well. My boyfriend always makes fun of me because I literally curl up like a dog when I'm freezing. Hey, no shame! I'll do anything to stay warm.  




I have the Athleta Polartec® Power Stretch leggings in gray and honestly have been living in them since December. They are thermally insulated and are able to keep you toasty warm without being bulky. I wore them on our New Years Day hike at Grayson Highlands State Park along with my Shimmer Down Long Coat.

In my mind, cold feet is the equivalent of stepping into a puddle of water with socks on. (Ughhh I hate it!) Here are some cozy options to keep your feet toasty warm. 





What are your favorite items/brands that help you stay warm?
