This is my Valentine’s Day classic outfit inspiration! I would be wearing this or something like this if we were headed out for Valentine’s Day.
Here we are, February 2nd. The months keep moving on. My mom is due to get her vaccine tomorrow and I found out from my doctor, even with my pre-existing condition, I can’t get the vaccine any earlier.
Last year we had such a blast going to The Cottage ( our favorite local wine bar/hangout) and enjoyed a 5 wine – 3 course dinner for Valentine’s Day. That was the last time we went out before Covid. Well, things are a bit different now, so we may enjoy a nice dinner and excellent bottle of wine. Speaking of, I hope to post my best wine picks for V-Day on Friday.
The day is really about spending time with the ones you love. And I have my family around me. So it’s good.
I mentioned last week, I did my hair via Madison Reed, as my friend and stylist couldn’t come to the house due to my mom being there and not wanting to be in confined space for too long. Also, she is getting surgery this month, so she will be recovering for 3 months. IN other words, I will be doing my hair for 3 months. This color is Carrera Crimson, if anyone is interested 🙂
I decided that yesterday was a look of richness and texture, while today was more traditional in red. Wearing an A-line dress from Karina dresses ( c/o) and heels from Marc Fisher. I, of course, wore my Mango red wool coat to go with this ensemble and love the longer length of the coat with the dress. My dragonfly brooch added a fun, playful detail.
Valentine Day- music and poetry
Yesterday I styled a “Dark Romantic look” as was inspired by the Victorian era poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. You know the poem, ” How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. ” One of her most famous ones.
Are you a lover of poetry or love songs? How many songs have you slow danced to over the years?
There are so many songs and poems about Love- too many to count, but I thought I would share a few of my favoites here.
This song is sung by one of the all time greats, Ella Fitzgerald. It is called, “Love is Here to Stay”, one of my favorite romantic songs.
Frank Sinatra singing- “Ive Got You Under My Skin”
Sarah Vaughn – “My Funny Valentine”
Cole Porter– “Let’s Do It” ( Let’s fall in love)
So tell me, are you more of a classic dresser for Valentine’s Day, a casual dresser, or do you like the dark romantic look? What Love songs have impacted you over the years?
