While most thoughts in February turn to pinks and reds and roses….I’m looking for something moodier. Black lace, perhaps, or something in a deep, dark navy – a color whose power is often underestimated.
This Valentine’s Day I want to curl up somewhere (clad in navy and black, of course) with dim lighting, good drinks, and a certain guy, that after almost 18 years of marriage, I still find devastatingly handsome.
In that slightly nerdy, nice-guy way of his.
Life advice: Never underestimate the slightly nerdy, nice guy. They’re something.
jacket: James Perse double breasted sweatshirt blazer (sold out) – if you’ve been reading this blog awhile, you’ll know my complete and total devotion to this blazer that looks sharp, yet feels like a sweatshirt. Mine is long gone, but James Perse just came out with a single breasted blazer in the same material. Too pricy? I get it – mine was purchase at the Nord Anni Sale, then try LOFT’s Fringe Jacket Sweater or Olivia Moon’s Knit Blazer (the key is to size down! I wear this one in a petite XXS. It’s currently on sale, too!!)
jeans: AG The Legging Ripped Skinny Jeans in 10 year well worn (FYI these might be my MOST worn jean ever – size 24 for reference – I sized down because they are SO soft)
necklace: NinoBrand Ronnie Choker
Dark and Moody Tops For Valentine’s Day
Here are a few (or 55, ha) of my favorite date night tops. I tried to find ones in a range of prices, but to make the list, they all had to be pieces that I would actually want to wear.
