Outfit: Heart Print Tights, Food Pins, Red Dress, and Loafer Heels

Peter Pan Collar Red Modcloth Dress with a Cropped Cardigan and Heart Print Tights

Happy almost Valentine's Day to you! In honor of the day of "wuv" I broke out a couple of old favorites to wear: this red peter pan collar dress from Modcloth and some heart print sweater tights from Forever 21. This dress, although cute, has seen better days. Something about the fabric makes it super easy to pill up so that's happening all over the place. It's sad because it's a really cute dress and comfortable too. I'm afraid it might need to be retired soon - but not until I try some remedies to reduce the pilling.

The highlight of this look is my super cool food-themed pins. I actually wore this last Friday on National Pizza Day, hence the pizza pin. Also it was Friday - hence the fries. The fries pin was lovingly bestowed upon me by a new coworker and is a very welcome addition to my increasing quirky pin collection.

My other accessories are thrifted. A belt thrifted long ago that I wear practically bi-weekly and a pair of loafer heels I got from Goodwill on my last trip up to Illinois. I know thrifting shoes is weird for some people but these were probably worn once and seemed like they'd be so versatile. I found out they're also really comfy which is always a big plus.

So what are you doing, if anything, for Valentine's Day? It's my first married one and we're staying in. We'll be making some tasty food together after work. My husband even brought home flowers already! He's pretty great.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and be sure to follow along on Instagram and/or Twitter!

Outfit: Nude Lucite Heel Boots with a Floral Blouse and Maroon Skater Skirt

Maroon Skater Skirt, Lucite Heel Nude Boots, Floral Blouse

This was one of my favorite recent outfits. (I definitely wore this exact same thing more than once because I wanted to get a picture of it.) I'm not sure if it's because of all the matchy nude/maroon going on throughout the pieces or what, but I enjoyed it. I bought these Lucite heel nude boots for myself as a birthday gift back in October and this is probably my favorite way to wear them - with no tights and a cute skirt. I've found they work best that way since I haven't found a colored pair of tights that really looks right with them. If you have suggestions, please let me know! Anyway, I paired them with my much loved maroon skater skirt (probably one of the most-worn pieces in my wardrobe) and a floral long sleeved shirt.

SO how has your February been so far? Matt and I have been enjoying our quiet weekends at home and are looking forward to some fun outings we have planned this month. I have zero idea what we're doing for our first Valentine's Day as a married couple but we're likely staying in since it's on a Wednesday. Maybe some homemade dinner and a bottle of wine? I'm not opposed to that! What about you? Have any plans?

Have a great rest of your weekend and wonderful week ahead. Hope it's a nice one. And if you're not, be sure to follow along on Instagram and maybe Twitter too! <3 p="">
