Turning Heads Linkup-Valentine’s Day Dress with Karina Dresses

Hello Friends,

You know I love Karina dresses. It is no secret. They are stylish, fun and don’t wrinkle. I am trying to think when I last saw my iron board. This paisley dress with pops of coral, pinks , red and fuscia was just the dress to style for Valentine’s Day. You can always wear red if you like, but I love thepaisley print and adding touches of pink for a feminine look on this day.

You can hear me say each day. ” Whose mummy’s sweetheart?”, “Whose mummy’s sweetheart?” in a higher pitched voice only meant for my fur bears,  Gibson and Truffles.

Who else do I love, besides my hubby of over 15 years? Its my little bears, my pups, my fur babies, Gibson and Truffles, so I thought it fun if they made it onto the Valentine’s Day shoot. ( if only I had little heart sweaters or something for them!) I can’t tell you how much i love these little ones! Usually, I will tell them , “to infinity and beyond..” but my hubby, who can be a bit of a nerd at times would say.. “there is no beyond infinity’.. Oh, well, don’t burst my bubble ! You get the picture!

Karina has come out with various patterns and colors for their “Sweetheart Collection.” This Pink Paisley print dress  is from that collection. The Ruby, a faux wrap dress is one of my favorite styles.

Karina dresses is as you know, made in the USA. The dresses are wrinkle free and there are dress styles/cuts for every body type. I am wearing an XS for reference.  The sizing is consistent, which is wonderful, because  no matter what style of dress, I will wear the same size.

Reds, pinks, feminine styles are indicative of Valentine’s Day. I also received this box of chocolates, which first came in handy as a prop, but then a delicious treat later on!

My hubby and I don’t go out on Valentine’s Day, as i would rather have a special meal with a delicious bottle of vino at home. I enjoy a more intimate setting, and we can enjoy each other’s company just as well.

Do check out Karina Dresses Sweetheart Collection!

    Such a beautiful dress! I’m a big fan of Karina dresses (I was lucky enough to win one) and the Sweetheart collection is fabulous. I love your pink coat and shoes. I thought the box of chocolates was a clutch bag at first! Your pups are adorable and very well trained for the camera! Thanks for linking up!

    First of all, I love your fur babies—they are so adorable! Secondly, I agree with you on Valentine’s Day—I prefer staying at home too, as restaurants are crazy, service is terrible, and I almost always end up sitting next to a couple that’s arguing the whole time! Love your pink and red look too!

    Lovely dress! The colors and pattern are so very striking and they look wonderful with your pink coat and gloves. I am wearing nude fishnets in my post today, too, so I think they are the perfect choice for this look. 😉 Nothing like our little fur babies. I think I am just about ready for another one.

Your pink coat has me swooning – my very favorite color and I love that it’s slim and not bulky. You are a vision of loveliness for sure in this gorgeous dress! I have those same earrings too, I’m looking forward to pulling them out again for Spring and Summer.
    I love seeing your sweet pups – mine is always photobombing! She can’t stand to be away from me, so sweet.
