Sweater: Sugarhill Boutique | Button Down: Gracie B | Jeans: Lee | Boots: Madewell | Necklace: Meredith Jackson | Bracelet: Isshou No Yakusoku | Tote c/o Massi Cestino via Style Mined

I see a lot of red looking at me (anyone else familiar with this play on words of a children’s book?  Hehe, it’s slowly becoming one of Austin’s fave books, it’s pretty fun to read, might I add).  As you can tell, I’m getting all ready for Valentine’s Day with this red shirt, red tote, red lipstick look.  I love this look because it’s casual, has some plaid and striped pattern mixing, I’m wearing the perfect pair of black boots that I’ve been searching for for months, and it’s got a touch of whimsy with a polar bear that wraps around the sweater.  I love that it’s the animal sweater trend and polar bears are just the cutest thing.  But please excuse the lame blogger bun, we had to hurriedly snap these pics during Austin’s nap time (as that’s the only time I get to take outfit pictures these days)!

Do you have Valentine’s Day plans all set up?  Gifts planned out for loved ones?  We don’t have anything planned… yet.  We’ll get there.
