Happy Valentine’s Day!!! XOXOXO I’ve been looking at candy hearts, and the XO’s was the one that I picked out for all of you. I genuinely appreciate everyone who follows my blog and takes time out of their day to spend a few minutes with me. There are too many of you for me to send each of you a Valentine’s Day gift. Instead, be sure to read all the way done to the end to see my Valentine’s giveaway.

I had another post all picked out to post about, but I thought that I HAD to have on something red or clothing with a heart for Valentine’s Day. I’ve posted about Valentine’s Day so much already that I have used up all of my heart clothing photos, so it looks like this red, black, and white outfit will have to work instead.

If you missed my Instagram Story about my Valentine’s Day present that I bought myself from Joe (hehe), you can see it below.

Brahmin handbag

I’ve wanted a Brahmin bag for about five years, and I finally decided to take the plunge. It is beautiful!!! This is the Finley Small Croc-Embossed handbag, and I am thrilled with the size. I was afraid it would be too small, but it is the perfect size for me. I’m sure you’ll be seeing me carrying it so much that you’ll probably get tired of it. Lol!

The herringbone sweater tank was on one of the flash sales the other day, so I’m not surprised that it has already sold out. Joe is a huge herringbone fan, so that is why I bought this tank. I wore it the other day, and he immediately commented on it. Here are a couple of similar options for you.

Red or black? You don’t have to choose since this reversible fringed Ruana wrap gives you both options. This is a nice heavy wrap, and it looks great dressed up or worn with jeans.

I love both sides, and it will look great with a column of black. The black necklace is an old one from Chico’s, but my red Kyocera Opal heart earrings from Kendra Scott are still in stock. I’m especially fond of colored opals, and this is a beautiful deep red. The black opal ring that Joe bought me for my 10th anniversary is in Pennsylvania being repaired, and I can’t wait to start wearing it again daily.

The pants that I am wearing are from the So Slimming line. This pair has a slight slit at the ankle and the exclusive Hidden Fit technology that shapes your style for a figure-trimming fit. I love the fit of this pull-on pant, and it is so dressy and polished looking. I’m wearing a size 1 in the pants, and I think the fit is great. The pants fit slim through the hips and thighs to the knees, and the regular has a 27″ inseam.
