Valentine's Date Night Look

The Scoop

Happy February gang! Can you believe we are well into 2019 already? February means we start thinking (or not) of that fun holiday where we celebrate those we love! It may be our partner, children, or close friends that we call our valentine but we love an excuse to eat candy and celebrate. And for some of us it is a distraction to get us through winter and closer to spring!

My husband and I have no Valentine’s Day traditions. Over the years we have done different things. Like one year he ran me a bubble bath with candles all around to soak in while he made a romantic dinner. One year, I did everything, made a dinner, dressed up in a sexy red dress and all he had to do was bring me flowers. Easy! Last year I thought we wouldn’t do anything and he surprised me with a big bag full of goodies, candy, jewelry, card, etc. He gave it to me after I had on my old PJs and I opened it in bed and ate it all right then! I thought it was so fun. Some years we do nothing at all. This year? We plan to go out to a favorite restaurant.

Do you have Valentines’s Day traditions or do you wing it like us?

My Look

Since we will be going out I need a dress! Right? I created a holiday look this year that I loved so much I thought I would do something similar for Valentines Day. I have this dress in three colors, black (see here), blue (see here) and now this gray. It is such a versatile dress that I wear it for a lot of things. You can add anything to it to give it a different vibe. Since it is cool at night here in Arizona I added a big cozy red cardigan. This cardigan is perfection! Soft, over sized, and that deep color of red that I think of on Valentine’s Day. The sweater will be used for many outfits for me because where I am in the summer (Idaho Mountains) is sometimes colder than where I am now (Arizona Desert). I decided to wear my floral Sam Edelman sandals to complete this look. I grabbed my backpack but will probably just carry a clutch when we go out. For jewelry I wore big hoop earrings, a fabulous statement necklace and my look was complete.

Mustard Please

The Scoop

The weekend here was so nice and I am grateful to enjoy it. Low 70s and sunny. When we are here in Arizona we walk almost every where we go. Our favorite grocery store (Sprouts) is next to a Starbucks so we walk there almost daily to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables and then we pick up a coffee on the way back. It is about 3 miles total trip so lots of days it is our workout. We are really into it with our backpacks and sneakers. Ha ha.

I love to cook so much so we don’t eat out often but there is a little sports grill about a mile away that we walk to once in a while for fish tacos. We really try to work in fun with exercise every single day. I try to cook following the Mediterranean diet which is easy when you love fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, etc. like we do. I also can have a small glass of wine each day when I follow the guidelines.

My Look

I am really loving all the mustard items in the stores lately. I have always loved this color and have a lot of it in my closet but it hasn’t always been easy to find. It is a color that some love and some don’t. I am in the I do camp. I found this top and decided that floral sandals would be so cute with the stripes in the top. I wore my Lucky Brand jeans which are my favorites right now. They are skinny’s but I went up a size for a more relaxed look and feel. To complete the look I carried my mustard back pack and I wore a Kendra Scott necklace.
