 “Online Dating” Tee // “Girlfriend Material” Jumper  // heart shorts

Hello loves! ♥

I am so excited to share this post with you all. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because absolutely everything is pink! Even if you don’t have a significant other, it is still a time to express to your family and friends how much they mean to you and show them their value in your life.

OK the sappy part is over, now it’s time to talk about the cutest V-day sweats! Wildfox is notorious for making the softest jumpers and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed. I have a space in my closet reserved solely for these sweatshirts (can’t help myself!). These jumpers tend to run slightly on the smaller side, so I recommend sizing up! Whether you’re going out on a casual date with your boyfriend, or binging your favorite Netflix show at home, these sweats will keep you feelin’ warm and cozy! Click the links above to check out these cute styles.

Side note- I absolutely love to bake festive treats around the holidays so these champagne cupcakes that I found on Pinterest are on my list of to-do’s! If you’ve ever met me, you know that I am quite the girly girl, so the pink color of these cupcakes pulls on my heartstrings a little.

Have a lovely day. Xx,

Paige
