We decided to celebrate Valentine's Day early, because sadly this year it falls on a Monday -- where we have school until 5pm and won't enjoy most of the day..so why not go out on a Friday of Valentine's day weekend? I decided to wear something very untraditional for our fancy V-day dinner. I definitely did not want to wear any pinks or reds, but instead challenge myself to make dark colors very girly and romantic.
About a week ago, me and my shop-aholic-self, visited H&M, and came upon this aamazing military dark green ruffle dress. Instantly, I fell in love & decided it was perfect for a fancy evening out with the boyfriend for Valentine's Day. So here it is, paired it with a cardigan (for a little casual-ness), my new all-time faaavorite hat (another boater hat haha), and my faave comfy H&M shearling wedge boots.
I actually never got to talk about my boyfriend on here, well what better time than Valentine's Day I guess haha. We're high school sweethearts, have been together for almost 4 years now, & surprisingly ended up going to the same college (but he transferred from a community college to Berkeley). And ultimately, in all simplicity & corniness aside, I can't wait to grow old & wrinkly with him (lol).
Anyways, there will be a Part 2 of this Valentine's Day Weekend post coming tomorrow, we decided to do separate occasions for V-Day this year: one-day dedicated for his present to me, and vice versa.
Btw, be prepared, if you are very hungry right now, I suggest you do not scroll down lol. We ate at Alameda Sushi House, was THE.BEST.SUSHI.EVAA.
Lion King roll, Shrimp Tempura roll, Island Roll: we devoured all of it.
I didn't want to embarass him even more, so here's just a little pic of both of us with what I took with his Valentine's Day Present to me!! -- a polaroid camera!! Ah, I've been wanting one SO badly..it was just the best & most perfect V-day present.
In addition, tomorrow I will announce the TWO winners for the Hardcouture Valentine's Day Giveaway!! Be sure to enter still!! You have until 11:59pm tonight! :)
So excited to draw the two winners tonight with the lovely founder/designer of Hardcouture, Kristine.
