Longstanding Love

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

(Goldco-Vintage), Sweater Clasp (Vintage- my great-grandmother's)

  'Tis that time of year! Tomorrow is the day of love. (St.) Valentine's Day is such a controversial day isn't it?! To celebrate, or not celebrate. 
    I myself have never really given the day much thought. I neither hate on it nor love it.  It has nothing to do with singledom, it has more to do with my dislike for days where there is pressure to buy things. I don't come from a family with money, and I've never been fond of the societal pressures to spend a lot of money and have that as a representative of one's appreciation or love for another. 
   That being said, I am all for the celebration of love in the many forms it comes in! I do give my friends and family cards, but the bf and I don't plan anything.  
   On to my ensemble now I suppose...I know I've donned this red sweater before, but the red is such a rich, vivid red it's perfect for love day, especially paired with white. I wanted to wear pink and red, for the ultimate love day look, but alas, I own no pink (I find I look too barbie-ish in pink). I tried to do romantic accessories too, so pearls of course. 
  How do you plan to spend your Valentine's Day? 

Until we meet again!
