This Valentine’s Day was amazing. We had dinner reservations for when I got off work, but we decided at the last minute to stay home and order a pizza and drink a beer and honestly it was everything I could have wanted. Our anniversary is New Year’s Day, and being right after the holidays, budget for Valentine’s Day is usually pretty tight. We don’t go too crazy on gifts, the last two years we got a hotel room for the night just so we could swim in the pool. No gifts, no nonsense. This year I came home from work to home made chocolate covered strawberries and cookies. Mike isn’t the biggest cook, so this was a great surprise! These with some pink roses and a little pink multi tool for my keychain was just perfect for me. And for my mans? A pair of socks with sloths on them (“slocks” as he calls them) and a hand printed t-shirt from Etsy.
This type of look is a go-to for me for a night out. High waisted jeans, tall boots or booties, a tucked blouse, and a leather jacket. Chic, comfortable, and timeless. You can even dress it up with jewelry or heels, maybe a sequin blazer.
I have naturally curly and frizzy, very thick hair. Even as a hairstylist (in training), I find it difficult to blow out my own hair. When I want my hair to embody Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show hair, I turn to my Babyliss 1 1/4 inch curling iron. I can take it over my natural hair and it still looks shiny and smooth, with the right products of course.
My earrings are hard to see, but I love them! They’re about 2 inches of a simple, thin gold chain with a tiny, little fake diamond at the end. They are so subtle and classic and, as with this outfit, can be dressed up or down!
