Pink Gingham Skirt + Collared Top

This is the only pink thing I own so I am officially dubbing this my Valentine's Day outfit. I actually really like pink these days, but it doesn't work well with my hair so I don't often buy clothes in the color. This skirt though? I can definitely get behind this skirt. ...I've written these exact things before, haven't I? I'm sure I have. Regardless, I couldn't help but do a little bit of themed dressing for the holiday, even if I don't do much to celebrate. I definitely enjoy it more ever since being in a happy relationship, but Jon and I don't really make it into a thing. 

The biggest reason we don't do much for Valentine's Day is because our anniversary if February 8th, so we do our celebrating early. Last week marks two years together, but seeing as we've known each other for nine years, it always feels like much longer. We went to Balboa Island yesterday (as we did last year and do for most special occasions) and had a lovely time looking at our dream houses and eating at Ruby's on the pier. That and spending too long trying to work up the nerve to ask a stranger to take our picture. We're both terrible at that. I always feel weird getting too cheesy here, but I'm can't explain enough how happy I have been the last two years. I'm even happier now considering we live together and don't have to say goodbye at the end of the night. Things are good now, guys. Like disgusting good that makes me want to throw up, but so good that I'm talking about it anyway. Please forgive me.

I'm still itching to do more thrifting soon, but I feel like I've had a good grasp on my style lately. Plus, I just won to $50 to Schoola, so there will definitely be some cute new thrifted clothes in my future. Hooray!
