Good evening, everybody! Tonight I'm going to be sharing my Valentine's Day outfit. I'm beyond excited about this post for multiple reasons. First off, I suppose we'll talk fashion. I was thrifting over in San Antonio when I went to visit my parents for winter break, and I came across this beautiful red nightgown (I'm pretty sure this is a nightgown, yes). 

The moment I laid eyes on that sucker, I knew it would be my Valentine's Day dress. So I go to the register, and they give it to me for 50 cents. Definitely one of my proudest thrifting moments. Boyfriend complaint: it's kind of shapeless. It was a valid concern on his part, I suppose, but sometimes you gotta just switch it up.

I'm a huge fan of the teddy and body chain combination. Lingerie is one of those things that I love to indulge in although it is so not worth it for someone like myself, who's always trying to be budget-friendly. Getting to wear it as a visual part of my outfit helps justify the purchase a bit more. Then there's the body chain which will forever be a staple in my closet.

Beyond the fashion, I'd just like to take a quick moment and thank my amazing boyfriend for the photographs. I don't know if it comes off as obvious on-screen, but these photos are taken with a film camera. So a huge shoutout is in order to this lovely human being that took the time to rent out a fancy camera, transport it by plane and car, take the pictures, and get them developed, scanned and sent over.

It warms my heart how supportive he always is about this blog, and how he always goes above and beyond to help me turn visions into realities. Thank you so much, Aidan! And thank you so much to everyone that takes time out of their precious days to visit my blog and encourage me to keep writing! You're the best :)
