On Monday, my blogger friends and I showed you our favorite looks for a Galentine’s Day party. Here is that post in case you missed it. Afterward, we got to talking about our plans for Valentine’s Day, and we decided to do a post once again together, showing you our date night inspired looks. You may not go out on Valentine’s Day, but you can still use these looks anytime you have a night out with friends or the hubby. So, be sure to check out Jo-Lynne and Deb’s looks when you finish this post.
Some of you might not be aware of where I live. I live in a small town in Southwestern Virginia, that is in the mountains. My brother once described me as living in a crevice, but most people will call it a valley. There is a mountain in front and behind me, and a river that runs in front of my house. Add a four-lane highway, a railroad track, and a tiny sliver of land to the mix, and you can see why my brother calls it a crevice. Lol!
The advantage of living in this bowl is that we are protected from a lot of weather. We don’t usually get horrible winds, and normally tornados are not something that we have. However, a big disadvantage of living with two large mountains and a river so close is the danger of flooding. It has been raining nonstop for days and pouring the last couple of days. This morning I woke up to our county under a State of Emergency because of the flooding. You can hear the water roaring in the river and hear large trees thumping into the concrete bridge that spans the river.
The forecast is calling for a bit more rain tonight that is going to turn to snow by morning. I guess that I’ll be held up in the house for a few days, let’s hope that the rain stops soon!
My bright red sweater is a year or so old. I loved the large cowl neck design of the sweater, and I decided to wear it as a semi/off the shoulder look. When you purchase a large cowl neck sweater, you have the option to wear it in the normal way, as a one-shoulder look, or as an off the shoulder look. So, the sweater becomes very versatile, and that opens up a lot more possibilities in ways that you can style the sweater.
I love, love, love the Avi earrings by Kendra Scott. They are a statement earring that draws attention to your face. I love the unique twist on the hoop, and I love how sturdy these are. The bracelets that I am wearing are from The Styled Collection. They are Chariot, Charlotte, and the Brinkley cuff bracelets. The watch that I am wearing is by Michael Kors. I like wearing a watch, and I think that they are classy looking, and I am tired of using my phone to tell time. I am wearing a long silver chain with a Valentine’s pendant attached as my necklace.
These black and white check pants are one of my favorite pairs of pants. Like the sweater that I am wearing, the pants are also something that I had in the closet. Just because I am a blogger doesn’t mean that I don’t shop my closet for things to wear. I am not a store, and even though I order in lots and lots of clothing to try and show to everyone, I also like to show you how to create different looks from the clothing that you already own. Normally, I wear these pants in the spring and summer, but you can see that they can also be worn in the winter.
I thought it might be fun to stroll back through the years and look at my previous Valentine’s Day outfits.
