Be My Valentine


Happy Friday and Happy almost Valentine’s Day! I have not always been a giant fan of this holiday, but after teaching about it to my students the past few years, I got a bit more into it. Plus, who doesn’t love a holiday that allows you to wear so much pink and red sans judgement?! Anyways, I just wanted to go a bit classic for this look. Also, there is another giveaway going on, so please see the bottom of this post for details!

Hope you all have a lovely holiday! I know a lot of these pieces are either vintage or sold out, so I have linked a lot of similar options, or options I love! Have a lovely weekend!
