Sometimes, I’m just fine with Valentine’s Day. Other times, I feel a little jaded. Yesterday was more of the latter. I think the advent of phone cameras and instagram made Valentine’s day a bit more “in your face” this year than in years past. Or maybe I’m just nearing the age of buying cats (side note: I could never actually be a cat lady. I’m allergic. Thankfully.).
Regardless, I’m never one to miss dressing up for a good theme, and Valentine’s day, with its lovely pinks and reds, is a good theme! So, I picked out my favorite hot pink satin shirt, added some pink accessories (rarely will I go quite so monochromatic – all for the theme!), and because I’m still me, added my favorite teal shoes to the mix.
The shoes are from DSW, the skirt a hand-me-down from a friend, and the shirt was a birthday gift a few years ago. I don’t LOVE how the shirt looks on me – I think it gives me a hint of football pad shoulders. However, it’s so pretty – and it’s BCBG – that I wear it, anyway.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day, however you chose to celebrate it. And let’s all make a promise not to wait until next February 14 to wear our pinks and reds again, shall we?
