Lookbook: My Valentine5:00 AM
People who don't blog (and don't read blogs) don't really understand my love for blogging. Don't get me wrong, my friends and family are all VERY supportive of my blog which I love but for some friends/acquaintances I often get asked "How do you have time for that?" or "Why do you blog? What's the point of it?" They just don't understand that it is simply something that I love to do and beyond anything it is the community and the friendships that I've made in the blogging community (and those of you that don't blog at all but are loyal readers!) that keeps me going. I get such wonderful emails, tweets and facebook messages from so many of you that make me feel like I have the most amazing friends in the world. I've been able to meet readers in almost every city that I've visited since I started blogging and many in Seattle as well! Every single reader that I've met has become an instant friend. I've never met anyone who reads my blog who I don't have an instant connection with. It's like starting a relationship without the awkward "getting to know you" stage! So many of you are so thoughtful and even send me links to products that you stumble across and think I would like and reach out to me for advice from things like a fashion dilemma to career decisions. I'm so flattered to that you guys even think of me to reach out to for such things. Anyway it's all a bit mushy but a big reason why I blog is because of you guys and I can't thank you enough for making this girl feel loved by so many people every single day.
Anyway, on that same note, I was incredibly flattered and happy when Luce from House of Hemingway reached out to me about a brooch that she had made just for me and wanted to send it to me. When I received it I could tell just how much care she took into making it, including the vintage Pucci piece that she added in the middle! She knew that I would love it and it is totally me! Thank you so much Luce, what a wonderful Valentine's present! And don't forget, go visit her here to enter her giveaway for one of your very own!

Heritage1981 Crochet Knitted Cardigan
I love the look of the crochet cardigans but watch out for it getting caught on stuff! Snag city! I love how long this Free People cardigan is, it's a great length for dresses.
Target is really surprising me with their clothes lately. I don't wear green often but I really like the color of the tank that I'm wearing and the quality is pretty good too. I think this top is adorable as well and would look cute under the same cardi. This tank is similar to mine and looks quite comfy too.
