Festive

Sweater: F21 (similar feel), , Shirt: Gap (similar) Boots: ASOS (exact), Pants: JCrew Outlet (similar)

I used to hate even the thought of Valentine's Day.  I never saw the point and thought "everyday should be a day we showed love"...one of those people...but now, with the boys, I LOVE it.

We've cut out hearts to hang from the door frame, put out V-Day vases on the window sill, and are eagerly planning Valentine's goodies for their classmates.  It's exciting!

I think a fun heart sweater and a sassy pair of polka-dot pants are perfect for celebrating Valentine's Day.  Oh!...and it definitely started snowing (well, more like icing) during these pictures.  I was ready to rock and roll and take that party back inside!! :)

Hope you're staying warm...and maybe enjoying some fun in the snow?!

That is why I love Valentine's Day, too! I love making little gift bags for them and doing heart themed crafts and making it special. My husband and I like to stay low key, usually just exchanging cards and snuggling on the couch with a movie. Loving those pants!

Now we just need to find pants where the polka dots are actually little hearts! ;) Holidays with children are the greatest! My students get so excited about everything little holiday related thing. I can't wait to have my own children and share in that excitement even more.

My son is also the one who makes me get in the valentine mood because he likes to give and receive cards or goodies. As commercial as the day is, it does have a special message, love. So why not do something fun or wear something fun like that pretty sweater.

I absolutely love your festive wear! I have ALWAYS loved V-day. It started because my dad would always give me flowers, and that made me feel so special. I know your boys will feel the same!

Lauren W said...

Love, love, love that jacket! It's such a pretty color (one of my favorites, actually - I use it on my photography site).

Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

I think Valentine's Day is fun but I do agree that love should be celebrated year round! Still, adorbs heart prints like the one on your sweater are definitely a nice touch!!
