Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I apologize for that. I normally would have shared something on Saturday but I was preparing for the weekend with my boyfriend and lost track of time! How was everyone’s Valentine’s Day? Did you wish everyone you love a great day? Whether you’re taken or single, I think there’s still a reason to celebrate. It’s a great reason to remind you to even love yourself!
My Valentine’s Day wasn’t anything extravagant but I still think it was one of the best days ever. My boyfriend surprised me with flowers, we made pizza together, and watched a movie! What makes me the happiest is having quality time together. Time where we’re not on our phones or doing our separate things (usually it’s him watching basketball while I read a book), and just really being in the moment with one another. That’s the perfect day.
Of course, I couldn’t let my boyfriend get away with not letting me get some pictures taken! Bless him and his patience. I turned it around and said it’d be another great Vday gift ha-ha. He didn’t need convincing. Get you a partner that would go out in the cold and take photos of you in front of a garage door holding flowers on Valentine’s Day. They’re the ones you keep forever.
For this outfit, I really didn’t want to put on stockings and a fancy dress. I know it seems like the obvious way to dress up for a day like Vday, but I couldn’t be bothered. Instead I wore my baggy jeans with the drawstring from Free People. I wear these ALL the time now. I wore a blue tie-dyed long sleeve turtleneck and my latest obsession: my puffer vest. This thing is so huge on me but I love it. It’s also not practical in negative degree weather but I can’t help wearing it. It’s such a fun piece! Once it gets warm enough to comfortably wear this vest, I’m going to wear it ALL THE TIME. It’s also from Free People. Thank you to the person that returned it from online to our location! It made my puffer vest dreams come true ha-ha.
The shoes that I chose are my Gola sneakers that y’all already know I’m obsessed with. They go with everything I own and they’re super comfy. The little pink knitted headband is something I knitted together in a day! I can’t believe I can knit something that isn’t a flat and boring scarf! I’m learning! I started it and finished it the day before Valentine’s Day because I thought it would be a cute and romantic touch to these photos. Am I committed or what lol? It was super easy to make and it definitely gave me the confidence I needed to knit more pieces. I thought I’d take a break from crocheting and give myself a challenge.
Now I feel like these flowers also need to be talked about. They’re from this local flower shop here in Toronto called Euclid Farms (@euclidfarms on IG) and they make the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements. I have been stalking their Instagram for a while now and I had never mentioned them to my boyfriend (I swear!), but somehow he knew. I was absolutely shocked that he had such great taste! I’m staring at the flowers he picked out for me as I write this and I am so in love with them. I wish they could last forever. If you follow me on Instagram, I am so sorry for the amount of photos that I’ve been sharing of them. I just want them to last longer!!!
