Hey, everyone! Thanks for all the sweet feedback on the Valentines from yesterdays post! Lots of y'all loved the "colorful" crayon valentines I put together last year... so you can look forward to a printable for those (without Luke's name on them - hahaha) this week!
Today for Crazy Love I want to show you a sweater that I am CRAZY for!!!
I posted this pic on IG today (@andrea2220) and it's from one of my very favorite stores... Hippie Chick Boutique!
I love dressing for a "theme" and was so pumped about this sweater the minute I saw it online. I paired it with mustard skinny cords, a chambray shirt and TOMS wedges.
Sidenote: check out my awesome selfie skills... 6:15 am... unmade bed, laundry on the floor and you can see into my closet. #professional
It was freezing today, so I added on my green pea coat and loved it even more.
I stacked on a bunch of bracelets and was ready to go!
If you love the sweater as much as I do, be sure to enter below! If you'd rather have something else from their website (or your size is gone or something weird like that) Ariele (who is AWESOME!) will totally make that happen for you!
I'm going to be super honest and tell y'all that my Valentines decorations have been up since December 26th. No joke.
I took down my trees and all the other decor and went ahead and got ready for February :) Some of y'all have caught glimpses of my Valentines tree, but today I'm sharing it for reals!
I don't go too big for Valentines day... pretty much all my decor is contained to my bay window by my kitchen sink.
My apothecary jars are filled with a sparkly garland, big pink marshmallows and red sparkly Christmas ornaments.
More marshmallows (hint: marshmallows are CHEAP and can usually be found in colors to match your theme!)
Every year I get tons of questions about my pink feather tree and I SCOURED the internet looking for one for y'all and came up with nothing :(
I found it in the most random way possible... I was searching Craigslist for a Christmas tree for my classroom and came across it. I met a girl in a Boston Market parking lot and $7 later this beauty was mine. :)
Rachel is a super sweet reader who always leaves me the sweetest comments. She blogs at Floral and Fudge and had a SWEET new baby on Tuesday. Which is funny, since Tuesday afternoon I opened my mailbox to find a box filled with goodies from her! Included in the box was this adorable Valentines bunting! I immediately knew it would be perfect and it is! Thank you Rachel!!!
The boys table is really simple... a piece of fabric (that wasn't wrinkly when I first put it up - hahaha) serves as the runner and then I have a little chalkboard sign, heart plates and some little heart skewers.
The chair backers are from Pottery Barn Kids and I have a special plan for them during the two weeks leading up to Valentines Day. Can't wait!!!
I am completely aware that not everyone has a pink feather boa Valentine's tree and/or apothecary jars filled with color coordinated marshmallows... BUT, throw some Valentines paper plates in your cart the next time you're at Target and set a special little table for your kiddos. My boys EAT UP all things "holiday" and I love how they look forward to it and get excited about the anticipation leading up to special days. A yard of fabric at Hobby Lobby won't cost you more than $6 and could easily spice up your table. Now, go enter the Hippie Chick giveaway so you can wear your adorable new heart sweater while you decorate! :)
