lace and stripes

Alright, I promise this is the last Valentine's themed post. Though Ral and I celebrated on Monday, I couldn't help wearing something pink to class on Tuesday, just to stretch out the holiday a bit--I do the same thing with  my birthday. I also spent the day eating candy from my Valentine, which included peanut m&ms (my favorite) and sour gummy worms (my other favorite), AND my homework was to read a food-blog-turned-book all afternoon. I really, really can't complain about my classes at all. Or life in general--it is so busy, but so lucky. 

ps--almost this whole outfit is thrifted. holla!

skirt, shirt, and cardigan: thrifted, boots: Forever 21

You are so darn pretty!
A combination of two of my favorite things- lace and stripes, I love it!
Valentine's day is such a cute holiday, I think it's more than worth stretching out a couple days. xx

I have a pink blazer that almost looks lacy that I was thinking of pairing with a black and white striped tee this week sometime. I'm so glad to see how good it looks on you! Hoping I can pull off the similar outfit as well as you. :)
