Last year Adam and I were traveling on Valentine’s Day, so we had to celebrate a few days later. We quickly realized that’s the way to celebrate Valentine’s Day because you get great deals on all the flowers, candy, cards, and gifts! Plus, restaurants aren’t nearly as crowded since all the happy couples tend to go out the day of. So, this past weekend we had our Valentine’s date night. I was so excited because I’ve been saving this outfit for our dinner date. Naturally as soon as I bought this skirt I thought of Valentine’s day because of its beautiful berry color. I wore it for Christmas Eve too with a black top and it looked just as beautiful! I’ve been wanting a fluffy tulle skirt for soooo long now. They’re so girly and fun! I’ve seen quite a few girls dress them down with a graphic tee and some sneakers, but I’m not quite sure I could pull that off. When I wear it I feel so fancy, though, so I tend to gravitate toward a pair of heels anyway. Funny enough, I felt pretty “extra” because I ended up wearing it to a sports bar at one point. I was joking with Mandi that if wearing a glorified tutu to a sports bar didn’t describe me perfectly, I don’t know what would. I like to keep it casually classy and chic. 😉

How was your Valentine’s day? Or did you celebrate Galentine’s with your girlfriends? Either way, I hope it was great!

Going on a Safari

For some reason this top reminds me of going on a safari. I have no idea why, so I can’t really give you an explanation. Regardless, I absolutely love this top. Quite frankly, I love pretty much any cold shoulder top. I think they’re so feminine and delicate. I also love the color of this top specifically. If you saw my post yesterday, you know olive is one of my favorite colors to wear. This top is so versatile because you can obviously wear it in the warm weather, but you can also throw a cardigan over it and BAM you have a cute collared shirt and no one has to know it’s for summer. Hope you’re having a good week so far! We’re halfway through!
