Dress: Anthropologie // Ankle Boots: Nordstrom // Sunglasses: Nordstrom // Lip Color: Stowaway Cosmetics

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

I love Valentine’s Day,

Do you?

Things I love on Valentine’s Day

  1. Coral color roses
  2. Chocolate truffles from Chocolats du CaliBressan
  3. The smiles on my students’ faces as they open cards from their classmates
  4. A homemade meal cooked with love
  5. Red lipstick

And, of course…

  1. Putting together a Valentine’s Day outfit!

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a school day, so most of the day’s celebrations are occurring in the classroom. Decorations, festive food, Valentines cards, candy and laughter will fill the day. In the evening, as much as I like to think I’ll be making a homemade meal for the two of us, the reality is dinner will be takeout with a bottle of red wine or a good beer and pajamas. This is what happens after a long day of celebrating at work!

If you have plans to go out and celebrate with your significant other, girlfriends or loved ones, this dress is perfect. It is feminine, flirty and downright adorable. Wear it with a pair of heeled booties or high heels, a red lip and soft curls and you are ready for your Valentine’s date! Whereas most Valentine’s outfits can only be worn once, the beauty with this dress is you can continue wearing it into the spring. So although I’ll most likely be in my red pajamas this Valentine’s Day, I’ll be wearing this dress a lot in the months to come!
