Valentine’s day is around the corner. I can honestly say we don’t go out as we prefer to spend it at home over a good meal and bottle of vino. But, I do like to dress in red for the occasion.
Did you watch the Superbowl? Great game huh? It wasn’t my hometown Steelers, but it was still a good game!
Since Valentine’s Day is near, I thought I would put together some outfits that were taken from pieces of my closet. I am done shopping for Winter and am making use of different combinations from my closet. I wanted to put a romantic look together today for Cupid’s Day and decided to pair my burgundy lace skirt from Ann Taylor, with my red knit sweater I received at Christmas. I love berry tones and instead of monochromatic ( I do love a monochromatic red look), I chose complimentary colors.
Add texture with my lace tights and my black Dolce Vita booties that have gotten plenty of wear since I bought them this year at the Nordstrom sale.
Add a fun floral embroidered circle bag, from Zara and you have a romantic and playful Valentine’s Day look.
An Amazing Story
Valentine’s Day is about Love. And I do love fashion. I love red. I love my little family. And by now, you all know I love dogs!
Speaking of, I have to tell you this story I read on Facebook.
A 20 something speech pathologist built a speech board with colored buttons and words for speech learning. What is specail about that is that she and her hubby owned a Blue Healer. Blue Healers are very smart dogs, and she built this 25 button board in order to teach her dog to “talk”. They trained the dog at 2 months, and repeated words with each colored button. The dog is now about 5 , and is able to chain words together to communicate its needs!! I was floored! She would press,”Outside” “Play” or “Toys”, “Inside”… It was just amazing! I thought if I had the speech board with Gibby and Truffles, Gibby would just repeatedly press” Food” “Food”, “Food”, and Truffles would press, ” Play” “Toys” over and again.
Do you dress for Valentine’s Day or are casual and stay home for the special day?
