My Lovely Valentine


Happy Valentine's Day!  Today, while considered a "Hallmark holiday", is still a wonderful day to remember your loved ones and show them how much you care.  I never expect anything big or overdone because a sweet card is all I really need.  But I do love to dress for the occasion.  This outfit is pretty special to me because I'm wearing both my wedding shoes and sash.  I love having pieces I can wear over and over again.  In fact, I can style my wedding dress for everyday wear.  I can't wait to remix that dress for you later in the month :)






Dress- Gift from Jessica (remixed)
Sash- Ruche
Cardigan- Forever 21
Shoes- Betsey Johnson via Ruche
Ring- Forever 21
Bag- Vintage

I can't wait to hear about everyone's Valentine's dates.  Are you going out tonight or waiting until the weekend to do something special?  Because I work so early I tend to push our dates to the weekend.  I can barely stay up past ten on weeknights!

I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day!



P.S. I added new items to my store!  Check it out HERE!

  5. I think you 110% have the right idea. I definitely want a wedding dress that I can take elements from and wear multiple times. I never thought I'd be able to wear the actual dress more than once... so I'm looking forward to that post too.

  9. Happy Valentines Day, Ashley! You look adorable in your pink and red outfit! I really love that headband! I'm also super excited to see how you remix your wedding dress :)

    As for V-Day, my BF is out of town so we already celebrated with dinner a few days ago. Tonight I'll be hitting up the gym then watching TV at home...just a normal night!
