I hope I’m not the only one getting heart eyes over the fact that Valentine’s Day is next week! Growing up, Valentine’s Day was always one of my favorite holidays. When we woke up in the morning we would all have a gift from my mom, the sweetest Valentine! It usually involved some fun makeup for us girls, a Valentine’s shirt and of course, lots of chocolate! It was like a mini Christmas in our house.
I’ll never forget the first Valentine’s Day that Jeff became my Valentine. We had just met when he went back to sea for a month. We were still talking on the phone, emailing and getting to know each other when February 14th rolled around. But like the gentleman that he is, he sent me the most gorgeous assortments of orchids and roses, from “Your Secret Admirer.” I felt so giddy to have met such a wonderful man, and excited for all of the possibilities. I always think of that gift when Valentine’s Day comes around.
This fun and flirty red dress is the perfect date night ensemble. The off the shoulder look has always been one of my favorites, but the bell sleeves really did it for me! I don’t typically wear red because I am so fair skinned, but who can resist in February?
Hope you all are feeling the love this month! Share with me one of your favorite Valentine’s memories in the comments!
