Hello ladies and Matt!
( I had to write this as my brother Matt mentioned he would like to comment on my blog, but that I always begin with “Hello Ladies”) so I have included my awesome brother in today’s introduction. 🙂
It is close to that time of year, the time of year that Hallmark and other card companies pull out all of the stops with cards large enough to serve as the place mat one would need if going out for a Valentine’s Day dinner. I suppose a small card or gesture doesn’t cut it anymore? Well, I love the Papyrus cards. Very fond of the tactile creative images, so I usually go with those. I also like the “classic looking ” or look of a vintage valentine’s card. Since I am mentioning classic looks, I thought I would dress today in a classic combination for Valentine’s Day, red, white and black. I have to add my signature “vintage touches”, such as this pearl and ruby vintage necklace that is a favorite piece in my jewelry collection, found on Etsy years ago. The red dangling earrings are more contemporary as I bought them at The Jewel Box, a local Boutique.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day a few years ago, at a wine bar with a fixed dinner menu, and as I am sure you know, the meal is always double or triple what one would normally pay. We have since then decided to have a lovely meal at home. Romantic dinners are preferred at times at home, and I am just thrilled to have a delicious meal cooked for me! I am not a cook by any means, unless there is a microwave involved and maybe 4 ingredients( ok, I exaggerate) but my husband enjoys cooking, so I wouldn’t want to diminish his fun!
Today I am wearing a fitted rich red blazer from Forever 21, a dotted white blouse from Loft, and one of my favorite vintage inspired skirts from Ann Taylor I bought several years ago. My eyes fixated upon the skirt the moment I walked into Ann Taylor! It too, was love at first sight. I have mentioned my jewelry finds and my clutch is leather from GIGI New York, a purchase made on Poshmark.
To me, the most important thing is that I tell the people in my life that I love them, and I will be calling my mom later today. We have a tight knit family and Valentine’s Day just means for me to let them know I love them. Of course, I will also smother my pups with kisses as they are very much loved as well!
I also wanted to thank you all for the wonderful comments I received Tuesday. Very touching, and it meant alot to me.
Tell me, What do you enjoy wearing on Valentine’s Day? How do you celebrate it?
Red Blazer: F21, White blouse: Loft, Lace Scalloped Skirt: Ann Taylor ( few years ago), vintage pumps, earrings: Jewel Box Boutique, Vintage Necklace: Etsy, Clutch: GiGi New York.
