All You Need Is Love

What I Wore

Sweater - Forever 21/Red Jeans - Forever 21/Boots - Thrifted
Necklace - Gift (Best Personalized Jewelry) /Earrings - Forever 21/

Valentine's Day may be 3 1/2 weeks away, but it is never the wrong time to show love!  When I saw this sweater in Forever 21, I couldn't grab it fast enough.  The black and white stripes and that large red heart...I knew I would be wearing it with my red jeans as soon as I could.  I know that there are some that are of the opinion that Valentine's Day is a "Hallmark holiday" and that you shouldn't need a day to tell someone that you love them, so they don't put much, if any, emphasis on February 14.  However, although I do tell those people in my life that I love them whenever I feel the urge, there is something about a day set aside to celebrate love that just speaks to me.  I decorate (I spent this afternoon putting red hearts and pink flowers around the house), I make special plans and in general look forward to a special day in the middle of February that gives me another way to make sure my family knows I love them.  What about you, do you celebrate Valentine's Day with plans, candy and flowers, or are you more of a person who thinks Hallmark  and the florists have a good thing going because so many people spend money buying their products?


  1. We always do a quiet Valentine's Day and have a little smile at all the $$$$ Hallmark makes! Love is for every day, right? Your necklace is so pretty - thanks for sharing your great look with Visible Monday!

  2. That is such a cool sweater! I love it!
    We don't do much for Valentine's Day mostly because my husband thinks it's a "Hallmark holiday" too. I use to get my feelings hurt about that but now I just do loving stuff with candy treats to my kids instead. Life is so much more pleasant without expectations. ;)

  3. Great job on the money-saving and style front with this outfit!

    Hope you can swing by and check out my post,


  4. So cute with the red jeans! You look festive and stylish. Red hearts remind me of childhood so I have a soft spot for them too.

  5. Wonderful sweater! i love a nice heart knit! xx

  6. What a cute sweater! Need one for V-day!

  7. DH and I usually exchange cards (Hallmark!)
    I love your sweater. It is just fab and I'd wear it on V-Day for sure. The monogram necklace is very pretty too. I have one and love it and wear it all the time.

  8. Hi love your jumper,I need one :) stopping by from the weekend blog hop and following by GFC ,would be great if you would follow back ?

  9. Ooh we have the same blog layout :) that is so cool :)

    I love this jumper, anything with hearts on is a winner for me. We celebrate with sending each other a card and going out for something to eat but we try not to spend too much money, although we like to make sure we do something to celebrate :)

  10. That is such a cute sweater! I have been wanting to decorate for Valentine's this year too. I usually don't but I think it would be fun and my kids would love it.

  11. Really adorable. You're ready for V-Day, and no mistake. Nice response to a trend that will extend long beyond the big day ... I'd love to see it with a pencil skirt as well, or leather pants before it gets too hot to wear them. So much fun for one girl to have!

  12. Love that sweater!!! I love and hate Valentines day! haha

  17. My little οnes havе strep fгom time to timе.
    Thеy usually buіld raѕh which lоoks scary but gоes
    aωay fast. I guess that's the scarlet fever. I believe antibiotics should really not be abused. It's poѕsible
    that is why уoungsteгs nowaԁays аre so ωeak for the reason thаt each tіme
    therе may be any baсterіal infection,
    antibiotіc is introduceԁ, lowering οur normаl immunity.
    So nеxt time aгound wе've been forced to rely on antibiotics due to the fact our own immunity are unable to manage. In severe scenarios antibiotics could be needed but only in intense situations. Some persons could feel that some strep symptoms wouldn't ocсuг if antibіotics
    might be admіnisterеԁ but how do u аctually
    knoω. Thіs really is absolutely nothing else thаt mеre
    assumption. Help save antibiοtics fοr іntense
    conditions othеrwise try tо rely on the
    own immunity. Just makе abѕolutely suгe thаt u consume nutгitіous meals to give your
    body fuel it requiгes to battle with the tοugh tіme.
