Anyway, Valentine's for us was really low key this year. We went to our favorite local spot, Ford's Fish Shack, sat at the bar, and stuffed our faces. It was truly magical.
Even though we weren't at a fancy restaurant, I still wanted to dress up a little bit. After all, winter had been long and dreary, and I needed to pamper myself a little bit. One of my friends from high school started an online boutique, Rose and Brûlée, and Valentine's was the perfect excuse to make my first purchase.
I went with the Romantic Cold Shoulder Blouse, and I'm kind of in agony waiting for warm weather so I can treat myself with some of these cute dresses!
I really wanted to wear this with my tulle skirt, but considering the single digit temperatures, I thought pants might be a better choice. It was really a shame, because I bought the most awesome animal print, pointy toe heels from Nordstrom to go with the skirt, but they still looked great paired with my J. Crew skinnies.
I finished off the outfit with a tassel necklace from Lia Sophia (R.I.P), and one of my favorite pairs of earrings from Kate Spade. My Jo Malone perfume that Santa brought me added the final touch.
As you can see, Millie was very impressed with my fashion choices.
I really loved my Rose and Brûlée top, and recommend you like the shop on Facebook and follow on Instagram--every now and then she posts a discount, and I know all y'all love saving money!
Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to go cry in a corner and scratch at my dry, flaky skin because winter is never, ever leaving.
