Darling Dearest Paige.

DRESS FROM KRISP* | HEADBAND FROM CROWN & GLORY* | HEELS FROM DOROTHY PERKINS

For today's outfit post I collaborated with the darling Paige for Lookbook.nu's Valentines competition. We both styled beige dresses with pretty pastel accessories, and posed with a 'balloon' that Paige lovingly illustrated into our photos.

Paige and I met through Lookbook early last year, and since then our relationship has become something so much more personal. We laugh together, we can talk for hours, and we support one another in our creative mediums. When I get married this autumn she's going to be one of my bridesmaids, and she's already winning some serious bridesmaid brownie points by illustrating my save the dates and invitations. I feel very blessed to have her in my life. 

I think the message of the competition is wonderful, as it encourages us to appreciate not just our romantic counterparts come Valentines day, but all those other lovely people we care for. It's not just a day for couples! If you have a Lookbook account and fancy sparing us your heart for the day, you can see my entry here and Paige's entry here.

  12. These photos are lovely, you look so cute in matching outfits, and the balloon is really cleverly done! I was staring at it for ages before I realised it had been added in afterwards! Lookbook's competition is really clever too since you like some thing with a <3 on there! You are literally giving your hearts to people for the comp!

  24. I totally agree, Valentines isn't just for romantic loves but those of all kinds. The best present I have ever received for Valentines was a shoe box fullof second hand things from one of my friends. I still treasure it. You guys are both gorgeous xo
