Some weeks go smoother than others at the Letizia house. This week was not so smooth. Without sharing too many unnecessary details, I will just say that at 6:30 pm on Friday evening, I am in pajamas, a glass of wine in hand, ready to tuck myself into bed for the night.
When I was a brand new parent (not that I’m seasoned now or anything), I never wanted to leave Lilly’s side. I was always afraid of being apart from her. In many situations, that is a fear I still struggle with today. What if she gets hurt? What if I get hurt? Mom fear is so real sometimes.
When Lilly turned two, my husband and I made it a point to get out for a monthly date night. Can I just tell you how life-changing that has been for us, and our marriage as parents? I have several blog posts in the works talking about a few of my favorite date nights and will be sharing some fun date ideas for you all, but why not start with what to wear? Am I right!?
If you scroll to the very end of the post I have details about every dress that I have picked.
Mesh details are on-trend right now. I love the classic shape and color combined with the unique sleeve detailing that makes this perfect for Valentine’s Day.
This color looks amazing on every skin tone. I love the balance of this dress. The high neckline keeps it classy while the slit in the skirt makes it subtly sexy.
One of my favorite color pairings is fire engine red with ballet pink. This used to “break” the fashion rules, but has been a trend for several years now. The contrast is stunning. This dress is so fun, I love the ruffle detailing to complete the V-day color scheme.
Buy this dress! In all seriousness, I wore a dress almost identical to this one on Valentine’s Day last year. I can’t tell you how many compliments I got on my dress. Best part? This dress comes in this gorgeous muted pink but also comes in a bright red that will be a sure head turner.
If you didn’t already know this at this point-I’m a sucker for bows. I don’t know if there is a better choice for Valentine’s Day.
This dress is currently on SALE. I just bought it. I never want to take it off. I love the brushed floral print.
