Blue Lace Dress for a Valentine Date Night

Happy Friday! I'm excited to share this outfit with you because I loved it so much. I wore this on Wednesday night for Matt and my Valentine date. I enjoy getting all dressed up, so I took my sweet time curling my hair and perfecting my makeup when I had the chance. I was saving my new Modcloth dress for this occasion too. It always feels good to wear a new dress!

oh so quiet dress: modcloth | scalloped suede heels: daisy fuentes - kohl's? | backseam nylons: macy's | necklace: gift from Matt | belt: came with a forever 21 skirt 

Heart nails were a necessary addition to a Valentine outfit.

lipstick: wet n wild megalast - stoplight red

Backseam tights! Finally! I got them over winter break at Macy's and they didn't break my bank account. I think Matt liked them too which is always a plus. 

I can't wait to wear this dress again. It'll probably be in a more casual way next time, but I think I can make that work. The lace overlay has a little bit of shiny silver woven into it, but you can't really tell in the pictures. It's still wearable for normal days. I tend to overdress anyway!

Matt and I had a really great time Wednesday night. We had a beer at Trappeze Pub, ate dinner at an Italian restaurant, then decided to take advantage of $3 margaritas at a taco place. It sounds strange with me living so close to downtown Athens, but I really don't go out very much. It was extremely pleasant to have a couple drinks and spend some quality time with Matt outside of the apartment!

Anyway, it's almost the weekend! I hope you all have a great one!

I'd say this outfit is...PERFECTION. I adore that beautiful cobalt blue, especially with the black to contrast. Plus you've got seamed stockings and such charming shoes!

You looked gorgeous for Valentine's day! I love your Modcloth Oh So Quiet Dress! I didn't know Macy's carried back-seamed stockings. I have always loved them and will look for some the next time I shop there. Your hair is styled beautifully! I'm glad you and Matt had a lovely time out and about and that people got to see you and your pretty outfit. I can see where that lovely floral lace overlay dress would be a favourite!
