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?
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.
