A Dark Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018, I guess… Everyone who knows me knows that I do hate this holiday; not because I’m single (that part is awesome for now) but because I think that we should love one another this much every single day and not just only on February 14th.

I shot this photos with the super talented Anna Tripoltis at our local Target! I was inspired by the “ugly places pretty photos” Lowe’s challenge and used the Valentine’s Day sections here. Since I’m not a fan of V-day, I went for an all black, gothic look; lipstick included. Something to edge up all the girly-ness.

I looked at my Valentine’s Day post from a year ago and it is so crazy to see how much I’ve changed in just 365 days! If interested, feel free to check that out here.

Romantic Fun

Hello, hello all and happy Valentine’s Day! If we’re being honest, I have always disliked this holiday because I think we should treat each other with love everyday instead of once a year. ANYWAYS, the only reason I am posting an outfit related to this day is because I am obsessed with this new red skirt I have recently purchased! I have worn it so many times already and pairing it with this sheer top makes for a Happy Valentine’s (or GALentine’s) Day and a fun time.
