St. Valentine.

Floral Crown: Handmade.
Cream Dress: H&M.
Nude Oxfords: Forever21.
Key Necklace: Gift from Matt.

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!
To be honest I'm pretty much a sour puss when it comes to Valentine's Day which is so odd for me because I'm a total hopeless romantic. Just something about the holiday has always bothered me and I can never put my finger quite on what it is. This year's Valentine's Day turned out surprisingly swell though! I wore my red rose floral crown today which put me in the perfect Valentine's Day spirit. My classmates totally had me blushing today by saying I looked like a Valentine's Day goddess! My teachers gave me all sorts of little sweets all day such as mini cupcakes, conversation hearts (in Spanish!), and heavily frosted cookies. Yum!

I came home from school and took outfit pictures while it was snowing and totally beautiful out... It's odd that when I'm inspired I'm not even bothered by the cold! Matt came over to my house and totally surprised me though with a dozen roses and a box of chocolates...We aren't really 'gift givers' when it comes to each other, so it was such a sweet and unexpected gesture of him. It's funny though because I actually ended up getting him something, too. Although we didn't end up 'officially' end up buying gifts for each other this year, we did so anyways!

I hope that you all have a lovely Valentine's Day whether it be with your significant other, your family, your best friends, a box of chocolates, or your kitty cat

With much love, Lauren.

I'm a new reader of your blog, and I love your Valentine's Day outfit! It could also be a delightful "modern-ized" outfit for St. Lucia Day as well. :) (Traditionally, the oldets daughter of the household wears a white nightgown with a red sash and a floral crown with candles on it on St. Lucia Day)

ah, someone else noted it, but it really reminds me of santa lucia. when i was a kid, my parents got me a santa lucia outfit (my dad works for a swedish company) .

Oh my, I have been so negligent in posting comments! Dear Lauren, I am so sorry!

I LOVE these photos. They are insanely beautiful, you creative girl you. They have a celtic-ish feel to them, which I just love and I really like how very simple and clean you went with your outfit, the red bow and the crown are just stunning! (And you look lovely as always.)

I sometimes wonder if I am in Narnia when I look at your blog photos beside the tree- especially the dreamy ones! So beautiful Lauren- I adore your Valentines day look. I took a dress to Paris with me to wear on Valentines day (black with red roses) but because it was so cold and we went straight out from wandering round the city, I didn't end up wearing it. Thus I am living vicariously through you with this romantic rose outfit!

You looked so pretty for Valentine's day! The floral crown was perfect! You definitely look like a Valentine goddess.

sounds like Rob and I. we aren't gift givers. We'll get each other some things randomly but yeah. . I didn't even get a card on Valentine's Day, and that's fine. He shows me love in other ways. He doesn't really know how to be romantic though. haha.

Anyway now I just adore these photos and this outfit. You look so lovely in it with the cute headpiece crown!
