Love is in the air and Valentine ’s Day is right around the corner. Wait, weren’t we just celebrating Christmas like yesterday? Seriously though, how is it almost February?
Nevertheless, my favorite, mushy gushy, lovey dovey, “I better get flowers” holiday is in just a few weeks and right around this time every year I start pulling all the pinks and reds from my closet. I LOVE to pair these two shades together, but I really only ever feel comfortable doing it in an “over the top” manner when Valentine’s Day is near. Not sure I could get away with this color combination in March, ya know?
I wore a similar outfit a couple years ago and then last year I was so pregnant that I didn’t even want to wear pants, much less a skirt and being cutesy with my holiday fashion just wasn’t a priority lol! But I’m back at it this year with this absolutely beautiful top!
If you know anything about me, then you know I love a good bow. Bows in your hair, bows on your shoes, bows around your neck – doesn’t matter, I just love the femininity of bows. On a side note, it’s too bad my child doesn’t feel the same way considering every time I put a bow in her hair, she pulls it off her head and throws it down with this vindicated “take that mama” attitude. Ughh, what have Joe and I gotten ourselves into?!
But anyway, back to me…and more importantly, back to this shirt!
The original intention when I ordered this shirt was obviously for Valentine’s Day. The pink ruffles and contrasting red bow were screaming to me from within the computer screen, but once it arrived, I envisioned wearing it on so many more occasions than just for this one particular holiday. How sweet would this top be as a baby shower guest, or even Easter, OR with some crisp white jeans for summer?! The possibilities are endless.
You know what else is endless? The amount of chocolates I’m going to consume this Valentine’s Day! I’m rewarding myself for getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight by eating my weight in chocolate. Then I can restart my goal of getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight and then fall off the wagon with more chocolates, etc. etc. It’s truly a vicious cycle. How are you guys celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? Any big plans!? Do tell in the comments below 🙂
