Love Actually

Hey everyone! 

I hope that a happy and love-filled Valentine's Day! 

I know that this has been the best Valentine's Day that I have had in a long while. I have had another snow day, so I got the chance to sleep in. Then, my friend Alexa and I grabbed lunch together and even did a little thrifting - I got the most gorgeous angora sweater. 

After that, we just got to catch up and she snapped these shots of me. It was a lot of fun! I adore this dress - it was my mother's back in the day and my favorite of the ones she has given me. Also, this lovely vintage Jane Austen book was a present from my cousin last Valentine's Day; I thought it was appropriate to have it in my shots this year.  

Now, for the rest of the evening my gal pals are planning on watching Harry Potter 7 part 1 and 2, with a glass of pink moscato and chocolate covered pretzels. All in all, it has been a wonderful day!

What did you guys do for Valentine's Day?

Dress - Mother's 
Coat/Sweater/Earrings/Shoes - Thrifted 
Pin/Book - Gift from my cousin 
Necklace - Giveaway win

Also, here and here are my Valentine's Day posts from the past two years - the first one was my first outfit post ever

Oh - we have a lot of snow. Proof c/o of Alexa here:

Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day- glad you got a snow day! Also, what a lovely red outfit, it looks great on you!

I kind of remember your mom wearing that dress when I was little. Although that could probably be my over active imagination imagining things. You should find a pic of your mom wearing that and post it. I'm sure there is one around somewhere. I'm laughing that bow is still around the book...although I'm not surprised. Hope you had a good Valentine's Day. Miss you.

Love that you wore red on red <3 I'm currently experimenting with that combo :D Beautiful dress!

Oohhh, so cute! Love your red themed outfit for Valentines Day :) Sounds like a wonderful one!
For me, it felt just like another day to be honest. Aha, I started my new job though and then went straight from there to my other job...and then I topped it off by spending about 2 hours at my college's dance :) Good stress reliever!
