This year our kids are on winter break for Valentine’s Day so we decided to celebrate a little early with just the two of us. Normally I play it pretty casual, but this year I decided to go for a more dressed up Valentine look. I fell in love with this stunning LBD from COS and paired it with two layers of fur because sometimes more is more. A vintage inspired wool hat rather than a winter beanie added a little glamour while keeping me perfectly warm as we dashed out for a little afternoon lunch together.
It felt prime evil to leave our work behind for a few hours and gaze into each other’s eyes, but that is just what you have to do to keep love afloat year after year. It can be easy with a busy life full of kids, work, and all of life’s activities to forget each other but every now and then we need to dress up and run away for a bit to remember to see each other and take time for love. We have been married for almost 15 years, and together for more than 17, and I am continually amazed by how wonderful it is to love and be loved so wholeheartedly.
What is your perfect Valentine’s Day look? Do you prefer to dress up or dress down?
