How I Style It link up: Valentines date Style

February 3, 2016

“How I Style It” link up is back and in a new year. This is a link up where a few bloggers and I come together once a month (normally the first Wednesday of the month) to show you how we each styled for a set theme and today our theme is Valentines date style.




You guys I am OBSESSED with this new heart printed cardigan I received from Schoola. I love how comfortable it is, as it feels like my second skin. I am normally a hot natured person but this keeps me feeling comfortable every time I wear it. It was the perfect staple to wear on a date day with the hubby, not to mention a snow day at that so on the wellies went and the layers (minus the coat).

My husband was rather heart shaped eyes in love with this cardigan as well and even more on this layered look on our time out.


As I mentioned above Schoola sent me this cardigan along with several other goodies for my family and so I am excited to tell you a bit about them. Schoola is an online thrift store so to speak that sells gently used and tagged new clothing items for women, children and teens that people donated to them to resell. How cool is that!  Your purchases also benefit other children and schools. They send you a bag with your purchased item to donate gently or new clothing and 40% of the sales from these items they sale for you will help a school of your choice raise money. What a neat idea! You don’t even have to make a purchase, just go here and request a postage paid bag to send your items off to them.

Right now Schoola is offering a deal where you can get a $20 credit and I can get a $20 credit after your purchase, using this link, when you sign up for the first time.YOU ALSO GET FREE SHIPPING! 


*Come back next week as I share with you what schoola sent my children to try. Schoola sent me the following cardigan in exchange for a review but all opinions are my own and as a customer of there’s as well you won’t be disappointed. See what else I bought from them here.


So tell me what would you buy from Schoola with your credit after signing up?

    That cardi is fantastic! I have a very similar one in red with white hearts (it’ll be on the blog next week, lol). Schoola sounds great too. Unfortunately right now they can’t ship outside the US. I’ll just have to wait and see if they can end up shipping to Canada sometime in the future.
    Love the lace hem on your shirt too. 😉
