How was everyone’s Valentine’s Day? Tim and I actually went to my parents for an unplanned spaghetti night and there’s no other way I’d rather spend our first married holiday together! Tim wrote me the sweetest love letter and it meant so much more than a store-bought card. My favorite line talked about how he hoped I didn’t feel special just one day of the year – and he truly makes an effort to do that every single day. 💕

We haven’t really gone all out for Valentines Day because after Christmas is my birthday and our dating anniversary, so we always just take a breather on the celebrations. I remember on our first Valentines Day 4 years ago Tim sent me flowers and they never showed up! We had just started dating two weeks prior, so I remember it being slightly awkward because neither of us had any expectations.

I adore this top from Banana Republic because it’s really stretchy and I love a feminine sleeve detail. I also linked a similar top in the widget that I purchased because I just love the detail so much! Both are pretty, but if you just want one or the other I would recommend the pink one because it’s a little longer and the material is a bit softer.

I twisted my hair back into this big bow which can be used in your hair or pinned into your skirt, which I’m planning to do soon! I wanted to tie in the black and white together so I paired it with these Kate Spade Peggy heels that also have a bow detail. I found these at Nordstrom Rack last year, so I’m linking other shoes that I would wear with the look if I had them (aka on my wishlist!).

 

Thanks for reading!

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
