Early Valentine’s date.

Well, Saturday night we stepped out for an early Valentine’s dinner. Let’s be honest here… the “real” v-day night is on a Tuesday… and, that is just not going to work with our real world. SO. That’s why we went out last night. Sunday will give us some time to recover from just a little too much wine and dessert. Hee.

{//hair style: no heat curl//hair clip: I made it//blouse: thrift//jeans: f21//shoes: thrift//}

How much do you love those shoes? I saw them at the thrift shop and HAD to have them. $15. Wow. LOVE.

Linking up with Mandy fromΒ Harper’s Happenings.

    LOVE the outfit, you look stunning! I'm also in love with the shoes, they are an AMAZING thrift store find! xx

  • Meagan on said:

    I love this outfit! Yes, I think everyone comes up with a bit of a new style after baby. I never did the pj's thing, because I really like to get dressed, but I used to wear heels and jewelry everyday and now it's all about the flats and comfy sweaters.
    I totally wish I could pull of the vintage look as well as you do!

  • Tabitha on said:

  • Sara on said:

    I love the idea of people going out early for Valentines Day! It shows true love rather than feeling pressured to do something nice because of what day it is.

    And I do love the shoes! And I love the teal accents with the red lips! I've always loved teal and red together!

  • aprilgia on said:

    Hope you enjoyed your V day date! We just moved cross country and not only are in the midst of unpacking but have not found a local sitter yet.. so maybe please post details about the date so I can live vicariously through you,? πŸ™‚
