the look of love


When I was a kid, February was my favorite month. Not only was it a month filled with hearts, candies, cute little cards from classmates, and my favorite color (at the time, pink), but it was also the month containing my all-important birthday, which I also associated with Valentine's because those were the decorations that were invariably available come that time of year. Since then, a lot has changed. Too many (pretty much all) Valentine's days were spent alone and single, too many birthdays were spent disappointed and depressed about growing older, and I discovered an absolute disdain for cold weather. But two things haven't changed: I still love pink and I'm still a sucker for the classic pink/red combo. It just brings back all these positive associations for me. This pretty/romantic look has got me so excited to spend this upcoming Valentine's Day with my very special favorite person in the whole wide world, even though he hates my wooly mammoth sweater. I don't care, I've been loving this thing to death, and I might even be rocking it again come Valentine's!

  13. wah, you look absolutely flawless! I love your lipstick, and you rock such an unconventional outfit! I also like the lighting, it's all very natural and reminds me of Pride and Prejudice, if you've seen it!
