Valentine’s Inspired

Despite the cold weather we typically have in Alexandria in February, I always think of feminine fabrics like lace and tulle when planning an outfit for Valentine’s Day. I also thinks it’s fun to incorporate pink and red hues, but favor blush and burgundy to typical bright reds and pinks. A flirty dress in a bold color would have been an outfit of choice in my younger days, but now that I’m in my thirties I look for more refined pieces that can be part of my everyday wardrobe and not just for special occasions. A well made neutral lace top can be a great investment and is easily styled with skirts or jeans.

What are some of your favorite finds for a Valentine’s Day date night?

Color Crush on Blush

I have a crush…on blush! I can’t seem to stop buying the frosty, flirty, feminine hue. I’ve been obsessed with Doutzen Kroes’ “Barely Pink” Color Riche lipstick for L’Oréal since the Victoria’s Secret fashion show aired. From my new favorite sweater, a beautiful beaded neckline sweater by Ted Baker, to my twinkling toes in Kate Spade’s “Trick” glitter flats, the surprisingly neutral color has become my new version of winter white. With blush on the brain, I also picked out the perfect not too sheer nail shade by China Glaze called “Diva Bride” to top off my my look. How have you fallen in love with blush?
