Sweet Treats & Treat Yo Self
My favorite part about valentines day has always been the extra chocolates and sweets that seem to float around… or sometime I float to them, or drive to them like I did for this shoot at Le Bon Macaron in East Lansing. After studying abroad in France during college — I can smash a dozen macaroons in no time flat. If you don’t have anything planned for Valentines/Galentines Day… TREAT YO SELF. Eating nearly an entire carton of macaroons felt AWESOME right after this shoot, and you deserve to feel awesome too. Do you drive by a local candy store, and never go inside? Go Inside, and buy unnecessary amounts of artisan chocolate . You want two orders of bread sticks with your pizza this weekend? Do it, eat one now and eat one later. Go big or go home. VDAY 2017 Baby. Are you doing something special? Tell me in the comments! I have a Galentines Day party on Monday, and then I’ll be going out to a fundraising valentine dinner with my boyfriend on Tuesday night. Proceeds go to our local Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and I sit on the board there so I wanted to go out and support! Plus Urban Beat is hosting, and that place is perfect for snapping a ton of pictures #noshame
Jumpsuits can get iffy when you have the torso of a toddler, but this off-the-shoulder suede one from Agaci hits my waist in a nice spot, and doesn’t gather in the middle due to my pint-sized mid-section. It’s a suede, and I absolutely love the color — perfect baby pink for valentines day! I love this look because it’s not a typical valentines day dress and party heels situation…. I paired the jumpsuit with some blush heels, and literally topped it off with my favorite purple beret. Look closely, there’s a little magnolia pin on the beret! Watch out for a post about enamel pins next because I.AM.OBSESSED. I can’t stop putting them on my winter accessories to jazz them up, and there are so many to choose from!
