Happy Valentines Day!  Okay okay, I know it isn’t until Sunday but I’m totally taking the weekend off so it’s now or never.  Unless you follow me on snapchat… and then it’s always haha (twistmepretty2)!  Yesterday we filled out Valentine cards and today we’ll be baking something… I don’t know what yet…  Savy wants to make cookies but I’m eating healthy and have ZERO self control when it comes to cookies.  Chances are we’ll bake a cake but who knows. Read more for outfit details and to hear more about our Valentines Day plans!

Do you have any Valentines Day traditions with your kids?  I’ve been trying really really hard to make holidays extra special for them.  I remember my mom would always have a present wrapped up for us on the kitchen counter when we woke up.  It was usually a new shirt and some makeup, candy and a little love note.  It didn’t take much effort on her part but I remember thinking it was the best thing that ever happened!  If I can get my act together I’ll decorate our little breakfast nook with some crepe paper, put out some cheap placements that’ll go along with some easy heart pancakes inspired by my favorite Eleni from Convey the Moment.  I woke up yesterday to Savy watching pancake art on YTkids — UGH!  Every morning they beg me to make them something amazing and every morning my yoda turns into a hot mess ha!  I finally bought some of these but who knows if they’ll actually help.  I always think though, if I can’t go all out and do something fabulous that it’s not worth it but my kids think even the littlest thing is awesome.  Like placemats for instance.  THE COOLEST THING EVER.  They’ll talk about them for days and days and get so excited to use them for every meal.  It really is amazing what a tiny bit of effort can do.  I’d love to hear what some of your traditions are — I could use all the help I can get! 

Anyway, I’m loving this outfit I styled last week.  I thought it was appropriate to post today with the pink boyfriend blazer and all – kind of festiveish haha!  The blazer is sold out — such a bummer.  Maybe they’ll bring it back, I’ll keep my eye out for you.  I’ve linked up to some very comparable blazers though and these jeans are AMAZING!  If you haven’t tried the crown braid tutorial I posted last week, you need to!!!  It’d be so cute to wear this weekend.  Also this accent braid is one of my favorites too!

Happy Valentines Day and we’ll see you on Snap asap! (twistmepretty2)

xoxo

  1. Hi, Abby!

    I love your blog! You are so creative and fun. Every week I look forward to seeing what you post. I was wondering how did you do your eyes in this Vday look? What palette/eye shadows did you use? Thanks!

  2. Hi, Abby!

    I love your blog! You are so creative, and fun. Every week I look forward to reading/watching your posts/tutorials. I was just wondering how did you do your eye make-up in these Vday pics? What colors/palette did you use on your eyes? They look gorgeous!

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

  3. Thank you for the advice! My birthday is coming up so maybe I’ll get it then! 😛 I love all of your hairstyles that you do. Although, sadly, my hair isn’t quite long enough to do most of them, but it is getting very close!

  4. I love the renegade bracelet your wearing! I see you wear it in a lot of your fashion posts. I am thinking about getting the rose gold color rather than the gold. It is just so expensive! What is your opinion about it, Abby? Is it worth getting? Should I get silver or gold so it would match more outfits?

    1. I honestly TRULY love the renegade bracelet. I’ve seen a few knock offs but I know they tarnish quickly. I’ve had this bracelet for a couple years now and it still looks amazing. I literally wear it with everything!! I’d absolutely recommend getting it. I think it depends on what you wear, but for me I have more gold pieces so I knew I’d wear it more if I could match it with other things. If you wear silver or the rose gold more get that one!

  5. Love this look Abby! Will you share your cookie recipe from the ones you were making on snap chat, please! They sound so yummy!

    1. Did you catch the snap of the recipes? If not I can snap them again or you can try vintage revivals swig cookie recipe — those one are so delish!

  6. Oh my goodness you are gorgeous!!! That pink is amazing on you!! And can I just say that I am so excited to try your last braid tutorial. I just need to buy that banana clip thing ha! Anyways, I love your blog, I love your snaps, and I love how genuine you are! Not in a creepy, stalker way or anything, but you are just such a bright light! 🙂

  8. Love the blazer, but I really Love Love LOVE that bracelet. We don’t have any kids yet, so I’m totally taking notes for the future from you Abby!! P.S. your Snapchat story is the best!

    1. It’s my FAVORITE! I’ve had it for a couple years now and I literally wear it with every out fit! And you’re so sweet, thank you so much!

  9. I love this outfit for Valentine’s Day! You just always have the right eye for the perfect outfit. Thanks for sharing. Now, off to recreate this somehow, ha! Eeks 🙂

  10. I have zero self control when I comes to sweets! My husband for some unknown reason brought Girl Scout cookies home yesterday, I had like 10.

    1. I went and bought 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, because I’m a gluten for punishment. I opened EVERY SINGLE BOX yesterday and had a few from each haha it’s terrible!

      1. haha seriously, I’m a crazy person. I can’t just eat one cookie. No. It’s the entire batch. So I either commit to eating an entire batch of cookies or I don’t make them/bring them into my house hahaha!
