Love, love, love



 



(On Me: ZARA dress; On Boyfriend: H&M shirt, H&M denim skinny tie)

Yaaawn. Yesterday was the longest day ever, but Boyfriend and I managed to pull off a fabulous Valentine's Day date! For the past few years, our Valentine's Day tradition has been to go to a five course vegan dinner at Great Sage, a local vegan restaurant in Maryland. And boy, was it creative and delicious. I never knew there could be such a thing as vegan "caviar."

So this dress is super special to me. I know I say that about a lot of my clothes, but this is one of the few items that reminds me of my amazing study abroad experience last summer in Salzburg, Austria. I actually purchased this dress at a ZARA in Austria, so it has a lot of sentimental value! I love every detail of this dress: the nude color, the embroidery, the buttons, and the nightgown-esque shape. It was easy to throw on after a long day at my internship and at school (Seriously, I literally threw this on in the journalism school's bathroom right after class.).

Oh, and who is this handsome boy you ask? That's Boyfriend! Also known as Shawn. His normal attire usually consists of ripped band t-shirts and skinny jeans, but on the rare occasion, he allows me to dress him (What a sweetie, I know!). His usual range of colors is also black, black and more black. But I couldn't resist putting him in army green and denim. I think the colors really complemented him! Oh, and his hair is spiked and awesome.

Anyway, hope everyone's day was filled with lots of love!
