Required Reading: Valentine Edition

After a long week, I’m planning on keeping the Valentine’s Day love flowing over into the weekend. And by Valentine’s Day love, I mean binge eating chocolate hearts, hanging with my favorites and keeping my fingers crossed that the Wildcats beat the Gators tonight (that experience will probably lack a lot of love for those watching with me).

In other random life updates, I’m 25 weeks along now (15 to go, let the always present countdown continue). And in more exciting (and less bumpy) news, this week I’m taking a little getaway with my mom and little man to Disney World while Drew goes on his company trip to Mexico (adult spring break wasn’t really on the menu for me this year). Not sure who is more excited, me or D3. I’m sure I’ll be exhausted after three days of Disney but a dose of the happiest place on earth is just what we need right now.

Here’s a little of what was catching my eye this week. Apologies in advance if you’re already over the hearts and holiday stuff.

* No one pulls together a beautiful collection of images like Heather {Habitually Chic} and this red one was a holiday treat.

* H&M HOME is now available online. You’re welcome.

* Pretty obsessed with this pastel pink look that Julia {Gal Meets Glam} rocked during fashion week.

* I’m going to need this whole outfit (you know to wear in 15+ weeks). But it would be great for Derby festivities and spring parties, so if you’re attending any of those, make me jealous and rock it.

* Big, HUGE congrats go out to my blogging best gal Beth {seersucker + saddles} for being named one of Southern Living’s Most Stylish Southerners.

* Another day, another adorable bump look from Jen {What Would Jen Wear}. This time with leopard print. Sounds like it wouldn’t work right? Just check it out. It’s casual, fun and simple.

* The holiday may be over but this wish list from Jessica {My Style Vita} is perfect for a friend’s birthday or just to pick something special out for yourself. I, for one, finally took the plunge and bought an Instamax camera for our trip. Thanks for the push Jess!

* I’m in kind of a phase where all I want to do is buy pajamas (blaming it on the babe) so I’ll take one of each of these cute ones Alex {Lex What Wear} found.

* I originally fell in love with Maggie’s {Moda and the Mar} style on instagram, so when she started a blog I knew it would be full of gorgeous looks and her enviable hair. Love this modern twist on a pant suit.

* Last but not least, big thanks to LEO Weekly for including me on their Valentine’s Day edition Lust List. Pretty psyched that this little blog is included on the site list and a delicious Nord’s Apple Fritter, Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream, Luke Hancock’s beard and artist Chimel Ford. Now I just need to pick up a print copy, if you snag one – will you send me a pic?

Oh and I didn’t get to do a “She Got It From Her Momma” post this week but I have one ready for next week. That being said – I need pics of your stylish mom’s. Send them to me, danielle@louwhatwear.com, with her name, when it was taken and what you love about the look.
