Valentine's Day Weekend Part 2: Casual Sunny Picnic.

Light pink Urban Outfitters floral headband, Light pink H&M bow cropped top, Blue Urban Outfitters high-waisted shorts, Light pink Forever 21 lace undershirt, Brown Blowfish Java boots.

This Urban Outfitters floral headband has been used so many times by me, I apologize for its recurring appearance on here, but I just can't help how much I love wearing it :p. This is part two of our Valentine's Day weekend (my part to give my Valentine's Day present to him).  I kept it a surprise until we got to the Berkeley Marina (a place you should definitely visit if you haven't! -- it's beyond beautiful).  I put together an entire "picnic basket," (well I only had available my Trader Joe's bag haha), with all his favorite foods:  I cooked him hot dog spaghetti, baked potatoes, made nutella sandwiches, and included his favorite candy (Crunch) & drink (Raspberry Iced Tea).  We enjoyed our picnic under the warm sun at the beautiful Berkeley Marina.

And decided to wear a more romantic Valentine's outfit today (I guess more appropriate than my last outfit haha). This was another find from H&M, the pretty cropped bow ruffle lace top -- paired here with my fave UO shorts & my first Chictopia Chic Reward from Blowfish Shoes! -- The brown Java Boots!  They definitely are my most comfortable pair of boots.  Thank you Blowfish Shoes! :)
And will now announce the two winners of Hardcouture's Valentine's Day Giveaway!!  Big congrats to Chandamheer of PancakeSTACKER, who will receive the Leopard chiffon bandeau and Cherry Blossom floral crown, and Kat of Kats Love Fashion, who will receive the 50% discount off any item at the boutique!
Hope you enjoy your Valentine's Day gifts girls!!
Also, look out for a Valentine's Day vlog post on my Youtube Channel with both of my outfits from the weekend!  Whether your Valentine's Day is spent with your best girlfriends or your special someone, I hope you all have an aamazing and memorable time.  Until then, keep inspiring beautifuls!

Aww this is too adorable. Lovely and romantic picnic. I had a candlelit dinner with my friend Shy, since we're dateless, but it was very romantic. Don't need a guy right now, hehe. Yes. I'm so glad we met last week. It was a pleasure to share the panel with you and Jennie. Let's hang out sometime and take lots of photos and be cool bloggers! Happy Valentine's Day! :)
