My Leather Midi

Charlotte Russe Necklace / F21 Blouse / H&M Skirt / Aldo Boots (c/o)

Happy Valentine’s Day, my dear readers! Are you doing anything special tonight? My sweetie is traveling tomorrow, but last night he took me to a movie, bought me flowers and gave me a sweet box of chocolates. Our tradition thus far has been to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 13th, which suits me just fine. :)

So to go back to this past week, it was extremely busy—full of great conferences puncutuated with yummy dinners with friends—but I promise to recap everything with my thoughts and photos very soon. Frustratingly enough I was sick with stomach bug off and on throughout it all, which slowed me down a lot, so I’m still gaining my health and strength back. But, in the meantime I wanted to share this photo/outfit with you, taken by the lovely Jamie Beck. I worked with her on a project back in the fall and when I ran into her at IFB, she was kind enough to snap my photo again! I was beyond pleased with the final product…she really is so talented. Check out more of her beautiful photography, here! xoxo

P.S. I have had a couple people ask me about this top. I got it at Forever 21 some time in early December from Forever 21, so I’m not sure if it’s still available. Sorry!
