Is everyone all excited for Valentine's Day? I've seen so many of my blogging friends post their pretty Valentine outfits, desserts, and decorating ideas this past month. I know Valentine's Day often gets a bad rap for being over-commercialized, but I LOVE Valentine's Day. First, it's so nice to have a holiday in the middle of winter; I mean, can you imagine getting through January, February, and most of March without one? Second, I love that there is a holiday dedicated to "love". I celebrate all the "loves" in my life on Valentine's Day. My children, granddaughter, and husband all get handmade Valentine's cards and small gifts from me!
I picked this floral cardigan because what is more romantic than flowers, right? I chose a blush velvet tee to wear underneath the cardigan. The blush color is a traditional Valentine color and velvet is a very romantic texture. I decided on black pants and black over-the-knee boots because black is my husband's favorite color on me and he loves OTK boots (what guy doesn't, right?).
I couldn't decide if I liked this outfit better tucked in or out, so I included both versions and decided to let you decide. Here it is tucked in.
I purchased the floral cardigan this past fall at Charlotte Russe. Mine is no longer available, but I love this white floral version for spring.
For jewelry I chose a necklace and earring set from Liz Claiborne.
Other than my wedding ring, I picked two silver rings to coordinate with the silver necklace and earrings.
I have shown this floral cardigan to you before. I wore it to another romantic event: a weekend at a Bed and Breakfast. I must look at this cardigan and always think "romance"! :) Here I wore it with all black: A black tank top, black leather leggings, and black ankle booties.
So what about you? Do you have any big plans for Valentine's Day? I'd love to hear from you!
