Vintage sequin top from Electric Lady Vintage

Valentines Day is on Sunday.  Our plans are a kids birthday party so no date night for us.  Truthfully, we don’t really do the Valentine Date night out thing.  We usually spend the night in, order food and just relax.  I’m sure this will be our Saturday night plans.  However, I always love a good date night.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a night out with just the two of us, so we’ve set that as a goal for this month.  My date night wardrobe has dwindled down over the years.  Sexy dresses and heels are impractical for me and honestly, not how I feel my most beautiful.  I’m not opposed to a bit of sparkle so this vintage top {with a Woodwards label} is a great piece to keep on hand.  Flats and jeans can absolutely be sexy.  When I’m comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing, that is when I feel sexy. I would complete this outfit with my leather jacket and a scarf.

Happy Valentine’s Day! xo

 

Valentines Day is right around the corner so I figured I needed some adorable pics of my Little Love.  She was so excited to put on her tutu.  A play day in her tutu is always a good day! She wasn’t so into standing for these pics for too long, so we made it quick.  Funny enough, my favourite picture I took of her was this last one where she was just doing her own thing.  {I’m calling it “Off Duty Ballerina”}  So here’s to life’s unscripted moments.  They make the best pictures.

I’m not really sure on where I stand on Valentine’s Day.  Is it ok to love and loathe a holiday all at the same time?

Loathe:
That V-Day usually only celebrates romantic love when all love should be celebrated.
So much pink. I like a pop here and there but there but I don’t want to decorate my whole house in it or wear it head to toe.
The pressure to have an uber romantic and over complicated date.  I love a good date night, but simple means more to me.
I’m really not good at the mushy love stuff. My husband and I see eye to eye on this.

Love:
Planning little things to celebrate my loves. My sweet girl included, of course!
Any excuse to have fresh pretty flowers in the house…I do this anyway though.
Candy and chocolate!!!!!!
Drinking bubbly in sweat pants!

If you do have a date night planned and want to create a pretty outfit without being overly girly, take a style cue from Paris Street Style.  Word on the fashion street is that berets on making a come back.  {So glad I kept mine and didn’t get rid of them in my great closet purge.}  This classic camel coloured beret with a real classic outfit….I’m thinking jeans and a white button up shirt…along with a fab scarf makes a perfect, effortless look.  An outfit like this can take you from a dinner out, to coffee, to a fabulous Galentine’s Day celebration.  Simply match your shoe, jewelry, and makeup style to coordinate with your plans.

Valentines Day is just days away and life is rosy in my pretty in pink new specs.  These lovely glasses are from the ClearlyContacts.ca  Love collection.  They were definitely love at first sight!  This pretty hue goes with almost anything and works well as a neutral tone.  If you’re not loving your specs, be sure to check out this collection.  You will LOVE it!

This year our Valentines Day plans include a family dinner that we are hosting at our house.  Just a casual little evening with my parents, grandma, mother-in-law, and of course my two loves.  Who says you only have to celebrate romantic love?  How will you be spending your Valentines Day?

 

 

 

Valentines Day is less than a month away so naturally I’m adoring all the pretty heart prints out in stores. Truthfully I’m not one to make big plans for cupid’s day, but any day that encourages shopping and consuming chocolate is a holiday this gal celebrates in some way!

If you’re like me, I enjoy feminine elements without being too cutesy girly.  Luckily there are options out there beyond the traditional red and pink hearts of our youth.

Black and Gold Love

Black and gold is a classic combination.  It can have a bit of a rock feel to it but when used in pretty ways with hearts and bows, it becomes soft and flirty.  Would you wear hearts or bows?  If these prints are just not you try a heart bowl on your coffee table filled with your favorite candy.  This way you’re sharing the love with everyone in your home.
