Now I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day, but I love the idea of dressing up for the occasion. After being married for almost 6 years, it kind of loses it’s luster. We don’t have any plan, but even a causal night in with a big bowl of popcorn (real butter) or dinner at our favorite burger spot sounds fun. With that said, I hope you have something fun planned with girlfriends or a significant other. Before you rack your brain on what to wear, check out Megan (Diary of This Girl) and I’s photos to get inspired, and remember that no holiday is complete without a side of tulle and cupcakes. If you missed our first post you can check it out here.
I love how our outfits compliment each other. It’s pretty impressive considering we only discussed wearing tulle skirts. Megan’s skirt is actually a dress that she layered a sweater over. Her white statement necklace, red bag, and ballet flats suit her so well. I want her gold dainty layering rings too! So cute and perfect for everyday. Megan – if you ever want to part with that bag, you know where to find me.
I have always found tulle skirts challenging to style, especially in the colder months. To make things easier I started with the shoes, and decided that gray tights would work best. The gray sweater made the most sense and pulled everything together. For the accessories I wore a vintage brooch from the Victorian era adorned with a cameo and rhinestones. I found this piece at a cute shop in eastern Washington on a shopping trip with my mother-in-law.
The purse is from Old Navy. They have really upped their accessory game. The pink chain bracelet is a oldie but goodie as are the rings.
Enjoy your weekend and be sure to swing by Megan’s blog to see more photos from our Valentine’s Day shoot. Thanks so much for reading. See you next week!
