Valentine’s Day Bliss

I hope everyone had a wonderful loving Valentine’s Day, whether you celebrate on the day or on the weekend, and whether it’s with friends, a loved one or your family! It’s so fun for Wayne and I to get dressed up and go to a nice dinner. This was our fifth Valentine’s Day together and boy, did he really keep me on my toes.

Early in the day, he texted me saying he couldn’t believe this was our fifth V-day together, and I really had to think about it, because I couldn’t believe it either.  I can remember our first V-day, and how anxious I was to be going to Valentine’s Day dinner with this handsome man as his “girlfriend!” I had butterflies!!

This year, I had a work event and was able to head home early to work from home.  As soon as I walked in the door, on our dining room table, was a HUGE bouquet of white and pink roses! I was so shocked!!!  In the card it explained how this is such a special holiday today because it’s our fifth Valentine’s celebrated together, so he thought it was only fitting to give me five dozen roses – I was blown away and could not be more in love with these gorgeous flowers!  So, this called for a blog shoot – Over the next few days, I’ll be posting the outfit I wore, and others considered wearing for my Valentine’s Day date night.

Malibu Magic!

So, many of you have asked where you can get this L’atiste Odyssey floral maxi, that I wore to Nobu Malibu, which I am head over heels about both! Everything at Nobu exceeded all expectations I had for this establishment: the food was amazing, the service was great and you truly cannot beat the view!

This dress I am wearing a small, it’s true to size (it would look a little better if my tata’s were a little larger, but hey, what can ya do?!)   It was a little long on me, but with my favorite Steve Madden Melina heeled booties, it just grazes the floor.  This dress is so perfect for fall and spring.  It wraps and leaves little to the imagination with the low plunge neckline and open slit in the front.  When I saw this at the most adorable boutique in Charleston, SC, I knew I had to have it.

I cannot believe Summer 2016 has come and gone.  Where did the time go??  Anyone who knows me, knows summer is my favorite season! It’s always sunny, everyone is happy, there’s always something fun going on outside – whether it’s happy hour, dinner on our terrace, long walks in the neighborhood or weekends at the beach!

I think we can all agree that this summers hottest looks and trends included anything white, striped, lace, pale blue and off-the-shoulder.  I think it’s safe to say, I have a thing for the off-the-shoulder look and hope to continue it throughout the fall, it’s just too cute!

Above is one of my favorite summer looks shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize. Check out his blog here.  He specializes in Weddings, Couples and Lifestyle.  I met Jason, through my friend while he was shooting her magical wedding. He’s truly talented and does amazing work!

Love these floral pumps, they’re so beautiful and really pop when you add them with a solid colored outfit.  I love the variety of colors, which allows you to pair with so many different outfits.  These can truly dress up any look!
