Happy Monday – I hope everyone had a great weekend! Drew & I went up to Dallas for the weekend to see my parents & do a little early birthday celebration since I won’t see them on my actual birthday. It was such a nice weekend home & went by too quickly! Last night when Drew & I got back to Austin we were too tired to go to the grocery store or do anything productive so we ended up just ordering in pizza & watching the Grammys. Not too bad of a Sunday night in my opinion!
Can you believe the end of January is already creeping up?! That means Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays (not only because it is my birthday!) because it is a chance to dress up & have a little fun with your style. Ever since moving to Austin, I feel like my style has gotten even more casual (if that’s possible!). People in Austin just don’t dress up – even for special occasions. It is so funny to me after growing up/living in Dallas for so long – even though the two cities are just about 3 hours apart, they are so different when it comes to what people wear. So while I would have probably opted for a fun dress if we were celebrating in Dallas (maybe like this one or this one), for Austin a cute top & some jeans is much more appropriate! This top is SO fun – it looks just like your basic black sweater at first, but then *BAM!* – it hits you with the feather detailing at the bottom. I love a black top (much like a little black dress), because it really gives you the opportunity to show off your style/personality through your accessories. I love a good red lip for Valentine’s Day (see my other favorite lip shades HERE), and I also decided to pair this look with some fun studded heels, a leopard clutch, and my most sparkly earrings. Simple, chic, and oh-so-fun for a Valentine’s date night!
Thanks for stopping by!
