Remember in my last post when I was really, really cranky? Remember a million posts when I said I had this natural inability to not be cranky for long periods of time? Well, what do you know. It was only a couple hours later that I was back to normal and now I'm having a great week. In fact, I think I can admit that it was just an inconvenient time of the month that will last for the next 5-7 days. But not even womanhood can harm me for long, one day, and I'm back to me! Yay!

The Valentine's Day episode of Glee totally melted my heart. Yes, I'm a huge Gleek. It made me really excited for Valentine's Day, too. Up until this weekend, I was totally dreading it because I seriously didn't want to have to get Niklaas anything. I know that sounds bad, but it was mostly that I had no ideas and while I love being cute, he was being way too cute for the both of us! (hehe) But!!! I was inspired over the weekend and I've spent so much time on his *present* and now I just can not wait. Of course, we won't be in the same place, but it's fun to get creative with snail mail and packages that are so much fun. I honestly think Valentine's Day is a day about all kinds of love, not just a love you share with your significant other. Whether it be loving your friends, your family, yourself, chocolate, an episode of Glee, or reading a good book. What are your plans for Valentine's day?

I took these pictures myself on one of those horrible snowy days when the snow is thick and heavy and wet. Like, in every romantic movie that idealizes snow in a magical way, it's light and fluffy and lands on your skin in a perfect way that it powders your hair and nose. This kind of snow melted instantly and made me drenched. However, I love this sweater more than any in the world. It's so cozy! I know a lot of people think dressing down is wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, but dressing down for me is wearing a huge cardigan like this and a dress. I literally laid around all day in this outfit feeling as comfy as if I was in my pjs!

I know these tights have a run in them, but I wore them anyways because I haven't found a replacement yet. I love the vertical stripes!! These boots are my urban.og boots that I love. Urbanog is seriously the best little place ever! I ordered some dresses from there for the spring and they were $18 a piece and of amazing quality. I'm always tempted to buy my dresses from forever21 because they're so cheap, but they're exactly that and always fall apart so I try my best to steer clear!

Anyways, I'm off to do more homework before bed because I've been a very bad procrastinator on the little things. You know, the sidebits of homework for little classes. Archaeology notes and lab protocol here I come! (But at least I have the big things like two lab reports, chemistry homework, and two english papers out of the way!)

we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout, and we've been talkin' about Jackson, ever since the fire went out.

Gosh, Valentine's Day....I am a hopeless romantic! Also I never really got into Glee, but it seems like such a great show! I might just have to tune in one day:)

Last night's Glee episode was SO GOOD. Just, so so good. I loved every bit of it. This season is blowing me away so far. :D

I can't wait to find out everything that you and Niklaas have planned for each other for Valentine's Day, hehe! I have no plans for it at all, so... yeah.

That sweater does look quite cozy indeed. Perfect for braving the chilly conditions! And yes, too bad if the tights might not be perfect, they still look pretty rad. :)

Have fun procrastinating! Haha.

Catherine said...

Haha, I'm the same way... woke up this morning and determined I'd comfy, so I threw on a cardigan and skirt with leggings :)

I don't think I'll be doing much for Valentine's day... I've never been too big on holidays. I'll probably just make myself a nice dinner.

This would be such a cute Valentine's outfit! Sorry you don't get to see your bf but it will be special when you do! I missed Glee last night when I meant to watch it. I'm just starting to get into it. I love that barn in the background! You always have cool locations in your shoots.

Becky said...

Love your outfit! The floral dress with the vertical patterned tights is such a eye-popping combination! So cute.
And I love Glee too!! I haven't watched the season premiere OR this past episode yet though! Gahhh. I plan on watching those tomorrow night. Ha.

And you should definitely paint your nails more! It's super fun and relaxes me so much. You could totally pull off a ton of different color nails. Ha.

Hope you and Niklaas enjoy your Valentine's Day! I'm sure he'll love your present! I'm cooking dinner for my boyfriend this weekend! Should be interestinggg. If you hear about a giant fire on a college campus in New Jersey, you'll know why ;)

Nicole, Coco Maria said...

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I love this outfit! Your dress is so cute and that sweater looks so cozy :)

Rachel said...

Haha, is it horrible for me to admit I hate snow too? XD
Your outfit looks great, despite all the slush! Super-pretty dress!

PrettyNiftyThriftyFashion said...

oh i just love your cardigan!!! it looks so warm and cozy also those tights are so so so cool, i need to find some like that :)

Ashley said...

Lovely dress, and I love your background! Oh how I wish I had a fabulous red barn to go and pose in front of. :)

I guess I'm getting a Valentine's Day surprise on Monday...I feel bad because I haven't gotten my lovah anything and probably won't. I was going to MAKE something, but uh I haven't been too inspired lately. I think I'll just give him a V-day card out of my $1 box of kitty cat valentines.

Oh, and yeah, I love "Jackson!" Good pick!

Roma said...

I'm a gleek too! :) I really don't know how it happened..Before I often asked what people see in the musical series but after watching one episode, I was hooked. You know how you can't explain what's in a chocolate that makes you want to have more...glee is like that too me. Still don't know why I am addicted but I am. :)

margarita ts said...

Rachelous said...

Love your outfit, the tights really make it! Also love the scenery, the barn behind you makes me think of Charlotte's Web :p I have no real plans for Valentine's.. think my beau is cooking me dinner and that's about it! I should really get him a little something but have no inspiration xx
