Cranberries In Bloom

Valentine's Day is almost here! I can't help but want to wear a lot of red and pink this week in celebration of a holiday that's all about love. 

This will be the 18th Valentine's Day I have spent with my husband since our first Valentine's Day together in 2000. I remember that night so clearly. I had just gotten over strep throat, and was so excited to be going out for dinner on Valentine's Day. I did not have a lot of luck with guys in high school and college, so this night out was a big deal for me. Chapin not only took me out for dinner, but also gave me a Clinique Happy perfume gift set. I believe his mom helped him pick it out. He was so thoughtful and sweet... and still is today. He's at Whole Foods right now buying ingredients for our special Valentine's Day dinner tomorrow night. 

Dress: Shoshanna 'Park' Short Sleeve Lace Midi Dress in Cranberry

Today's dress is one I saw online at Saks, and I just fell in love with the lace detail and the beautiful red color. (I love shopping the Saks app on my phone... maybe too much!)

You can still buy the dress on Amazon and Neiman Marcus, but it's sold out at Saks.

This dress is drowning on me, though! Many people have commented that I have lost weight recently, but I'm not sure how that could be possible, since I continue to stuff my face with carbs and sugar. I am wearing my usual size four, and it does seem like I may need a smaller size. But since the dress was purchased as a final sale item, I guess I'll just have to grow into it. ;)

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Tallow Sandals in Nude

I love pairing nude shoes with red dresses, and this is by far my most comfortable pair of Jimmy Choos. I would love this shoe in every color.

The Tallow sandal is no longer available, but the Sheila is very similar... and I love that name. It's the name of a very special lady in my life: my mother-in-law!

How are you spending Valentine's Day this year? It's a Wednesday, so I know a lot of people are staying in. Leave a comment and let me know!
