Valentine’s Day Mug Swap

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in the swap (Much Love, Illy and I got too busy to host the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts swap last year) so I was really excited when Sew Caroline and Rags To Stitches posted about their Valentine’s Day Mug Swap.  I thought it was a super cute idea for a swap, so I signed up.  And I am so glad I did.  I got the most amazing package from Andrea of Little Life of Mine. Like, I seriously got spoiled. So much so that I decided to wear some of it in my Valentines Day outfit!



Look at all this stuff!!!


This wooden frame is so adorable and perfect and so US!  And the mug is just PERFECT for V Day!


Such a beautiful quote~!


Some of my favorite candies. 🙂


A cute watch locket and a chevron scarf – she really knows me well!!


And a sweet note written by my new bloggy buddy.

Tank Top: Forever 21 | Cardigan: | Skirt: Kate Spade {similar} | Shoes: Zara | Necklace: From Andrea

I just loved the necklace I got so much that I had to incorporate it into a Valentines Day outfit.  My husband and I are going out to a fancy dinner this Saturday (I’m surprising him w/ the restaurant location!) and this will be the perfect outfit for date night (besides the fact that he already saw me wear it, but oh well)!  I just love black and red together and you can’t go wrong with a little neutral thrown in, and bows too.  🙂

What are you wearing for Valentine’s Day?

    I went back and forth on a few different lockets, and not kidding, picked the one that I would want because I figured our tastes were so similar! haha
