Ever since our perfect night out (ah, Napa), I’ve been dreaming of another peaceful night on the town. When you’re working 12 hour days and coming home to two active little ones, those few hours away are not taken for granted… Believe me! Most of the time I like to keep things cozy and natural when I’m not working, but I love to get all dolled up on date nights… Who doesn’t? That was the inspiration for combing through all these styles and coming across a few romantic must-have dresses.
Styles I’m loving…
Flirty. Valentine’s Day is really just about love, friendship and fun. It’s really just about celebrating those you love to spend time with – there shouldn’t be so much pressure. A flirty dress can work for anyone regardless of whether they’re going on a first date, a date with the hubby or a group outing with friends. Isn’t the cape look such an unexpected style for a little red dress?
Girly. Ladies who love floral, rejoice. Spring styles are on their way. A floral print is always a classic choice for something like Valentine’s Day, and my favorite thing about them is the romantic colors. But ultra feminine styles aren’t ALL flowers – a casual tulle maxi skirt paired with a slight crop top is romantic without being over the top. Perfect for brunch with girl friends too!
Modern. And for those with a sultrier side? I say keep it simple with a solid color like black, white or red and focus on fabulous details like sheath overlays and unique necklines. Had to throw an all white jumpsuit in there too if you really want a head turner. Love.
When it comes to accessorizing, I love my mommy necklace (I now have one that includes both Aden and Ariah and I never take it off!) and a cute pair of heels. Many of these would look flawless belted too.
Nothing wrong with getting a little springy before the warm weather hits, right? You can always throw on one of these chic winter coats that are finally on sale.
