Blouse: Thrifted via Goodwill
Dress: Gift from Brett
Belt: From this dress
I know these photos are a little dark but just shortly before they were taken, I got this dress as a Valentine's Day gift from Brett. I couldn't pass up an opportunity to show my new lovely dress! I was so excited and it fits like a glove. He did good :)
Speaking of Valentine's Day, I know some people balk at the holiday. I embrace it though! Many people maintain that we should show love year round and not just on V-Day. I agree! But there's no harm in making others feel extra special. I love the day! Brett got me flowers and then the vintage dress I'm wearing above (and candy, always gotta have candy). I got Brett a new book, a vintage tie, shirt and vest. We then went to get drinks at a favorite bar, have sushi dinner and top the night off on the couch with some salted caramel cupcakes.
It's strange because last year, Brett and I both got each other prints. This year, we both got each other vintage clothes. Great minds (in love) think alike?!
Hope you all felt super loved this Valentine's Day!
