Happy Wednesday everyone! Here's what I actually wore on Valentine's Day and is another outfit featuring my new short 'do. This outfit wasn't planned in advance and was thrown together that morning, but I think it turned out very festive! I went with traditional red for the holiday and wore this red Modcloth dress with a peter pan collar. I always enjoy wearing this dress because I think it's really flattering on me. I may love it even more with my short hair. Anyway, I decided I needed a little bit of leopard print too and threw on this short sleeved cardigan. Leopard and red scream Valentine's Day to me, but maybe that's just me. I also went all out with the heart accessories and matched my gold sparkly loafers to all of my gold heart jewelry.
dress: modcloth | cardigan: forever 21 | tights: macy's | shoes: xhileration - target | belt: thrifted | heart ring: forever 21 | heart necklace & earrings: gift from Matt
Here's the offending earring that is causing me so much grief, but it looked super cool for about 5 days before the reaction started. So this picture will be the last one you'll see of that gold earring because it was made out of some crap substance. It seriously blew my ear up - swollen, red, rashed out, throbbing pain. Yeah. Sexy. I'm positive it was the cause of most of my issues. Since taking it out (very painfully) and putting my old one back in the swelling and pain decreased significantly. So here's my lesson learned here: stick with the surgical stainless steel and don't buy any inexpensive jewelry for a cartilage piercing. It's not worth it.
Matt and I had a good Valentine's Day together. We were both exhausted that day for whatever reason and decided to just go get some burgers and boozy milkshakes. Then we fell asleep. It was probably a food coma. We didn't get to do everything we had planned for the weekend (especially since we lost Sunday due to me needing to go to the doctor for my stupid infected ear), but there's always this weekend! It was our 7th Valentine's Day together. That sounds crazy to me, but time flies.
P.S. Matt also took these pictures for me even though it was cold outside. He's getting pretty good!
I hope you guys are having a nice week!
