Love-ly Day

Blouse: Thrifted via Goodwill
Dress: Gift from Brett
Belt: From this dress
Clutch: Gift
Tights: J.Crew
Shoes: F21

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!


  1. Great thrifted blouse. Love this color combo!

  2. You always have the best dresses! You look so lovely in this color. How cute that you both ended up getting the same gifts! I would love to get vintage clothes as a gift.

  3. My new obsession is mint/teal with red! I LOVE this dress and belt! Brett did a fantastic job and you look so ladylike and fun!

  4. The pop of color is lovely. Especially the matching nails. So cute.

  5. Your husband bought this for you??? A-MAZING! He did good alright! You look gorgeous. I love this dress paired with the turquoise accessories.

  6. That dress is beautiful and it fits your perfectly! It looks great! What a great gift from your hubby!

    I agree - I absolutely love Valentine's Day... there is nothing wrong with taking a day to make those you love feel EXTRA loved. How can one hate that!? :)

    & I love the aquamarine/robin's egg blue with the red...I used the same colors for my wedding...they're gorgeous together!
