Happy Valentine’s Day!
Want to know why I like this holiday? Another excuse to wear red!
I am a sucker for red; I’ll admit it. Maybe because this color never fails to be eye-catching, warm, and bold. Nonetheless, I’ve officially launched my blog and Etsy shop today, so here’s my coat, making a statement! It’s practically screams “It’s Valentine’s Day!”
Red Coat: Forever 21
Eyeglasses: Kirkland Brand
Braided Neckwear: Cozy Reverie Accessories
Navy Blue dress: Forever 21
Black tights: Been in my sock drawer so long that I’ve forgotten where I got them
Red Peep-toe Pumps: SwapMamas.com
Oh, I should probably explain the map, huh? Back in 1999, my family moved into the fantastic little townhome, which included a poorly-executed wallpaper of a global map. I mean BAD. This thing is crooked and torn at the top corners. I remember my dad, sister, and I wanting to tear it down and repair the wall, but my mom refused. For some reason, she loved it and would not let us do anything to it. In this family, what my mom says is law.
Now, fourteen years later, I’m the “head of the household” in this townhome. My parents bought another home, so this is my domain. I could remove it if I want, but I just don’t want to.
Somehow, I see the charm that my mom saw all those years ago. I mean, it IS pretty cool. If anything, I know this room will always have character. People ask about it all the time. It’s a part of the history of this home and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thanks so much for reading!
