Oh love... I am no expert in it.  I have been burned by it.  And I'm still a sucker for it.  It's true that the longest relationship I've had with the opposite sex is my dog Rex... And let me tell you it's been a long six years :)  The best way I've heard love described is that it's a contest in generosity... and it's so true. You want to do every little thing to make the other person feel loved and appreciated, because you are so very grateful for how lucky they make you feel. And sometimes, you want to wear a heart on your sweater :)

Oooo perfect pairing! The plaid shirt really compliments your sweater. I've been looking for the perfect plaid shirt forever, but ones with red and blues are always catching my eye :)

I really dig this outfit! That plaid shirt is great. I was in target yesterday and spotted some amazing things but not as nice as that top! Oh and sometimes I wish we were roomies so I could borrow your tights and such!

Great post...and that's a great description of love also. That heart sweater is adorable and I LOVE how you paired your denim with tights and pumps. What a great way to still wear cropped denim for fall :)

Aww, so cute that your best love is your pup! :) I really like this adorable sweater paired with the plaid underneath too - I have a taupe/black heart sweater (DIY'd based on last year's J.Crew version) that I'm planning to try that with this fall!

Bethie The Boo said...

Oh love. I remember I had a teacher in middle school ask us to try to define love. I couldn't do it then and I still don't think I can!

Your heart sweater is adorable!

Terry S said...

I SOOOOOOO <3 this look! I really love how you made it uniquely you by wearing the polka dot tights and the heels with the sweater and jeans.
