I don’t know what it is about the month of February, but pink and red are the staple colors all month-long. I don’t really wear a lot of pink or red, but I have been loving burgundy/wine tones this season. I found this wrap dress at the Free People store sample sale a few weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day date! This wrap dress is silk so it’s a little more dressed up even though the actual style isn’t anything too fancy. I really love this one because how it wraps it allows for easily adjustment of the waistline. Most wrap dresses or skirts don’t fit me snugly enough around the waist because of where the straps loop through.
Since this wrap dress was a sample (meaning it was returned to that store), I wasn’t able to find this exact dress, however I found this one that is remarkably similar, and some great alternative options below for you to try out! Of course I’m carrying my favorite bag. It’s seriously one of my best purchases. This black clutch, with the chain removable strap. I carry it all the time! Another accessory I’m loving? This adorable choker. I got it in my latest Rocksbox, and guys, Rocksbox has had me stepping up my jewelry game so hard recently! I love how I get really fun pieces anytime I want!

OK lets talk plans. Last year Kale and I went out for a really nice dinner date and it was seriously so good! We didn’t do big gifts or anything, which I honestly prefer. With one exception, before I met Kale, I didn’t have any Valentine’s Day when I was dating anyone, so I’m new to this whole celebrating as a couple thing. Growing up, I always celebrated Valentine’s Day with my family, but it was never a romantic thing until last year with Kale. We went out for a fabulous dinner date and had a wonderful time. Personally I think that Valentine’s Day is over commercialized, with extravagant gifts, but I believe it is about being with and celebrating your love for one another. So pick out a pretty dress and enjoy each other’s company. Put down the phone and turn off instagram, and really spend some time together. It’s the best gift you can give a loved one, really.
