when love is a verb...


Between school, work and overall busy schedules I can't tell you the last time I actually celebrated Valentine's Day on Valentine's Day and this year is no different. One of my lovely professors decided to make a massive midterm due this week, but I did manage to make time for brunch and a basketball game this weekend. And thanks to EBEW BDIB it wasn't very hard deciding what to wear. Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I leave you with two great quotes on love, from two very influential people ;)


"Only when love is a verb and put into action does it thrive. It's a mistake to think that a loving relationship is going to automatically sustain itself. Nothing worth having happens without work." ~Oprah


"You know you are in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." ~Dr. Seuss 


wearing: old navy blouse (PURCHASE) & earrings, express slacks, calvin klein heels (SIMILARSIMILAR), thrifted necklace
worn to: brunch at PICAN
Pink + Red | Everybody, Everywear

BTW if you are local and free on Thursday evening at 6 p.m. please stop by Macy's in Union Square. They are doing a great thing this Black History Month and honoring the legacy of famed artist Romare Bearden and they are kicking off the exhibit with a reception this Thursday 2/16. To RSVP, learn more, or see if Macy's in your area is doing something similar please go HERE. Maybe I will see you there :)

  11. Red and pink together? You really pulled it off. The quotes are beautiful. The Black History event at Macys should be very interesting and informative.
