Valentine’s Day is often seen as a cheesy Hallmark holiday, but it will always have a special place in my heart because it’s Jake and I’s anniversary! We “officially” started dating February 14, 2011, making this our fifth V-day together. Yesterday, we went out to dinner in Channelside before going to the Lightning vs. Blues hockey game.
I bought this dress specifically for my birthday last month. I wore it out to dinner, but it was so cold out that I never took my jacket off and no one got to see it. If no one saw it, it doesn’t count, right? I figured Valentine’s Day would be the perfect occasion to pull it out of my closet again. Finally something that isn’t black! The dress is by Luxxel and I picked it up from Ashe Couture Boutique, another cute shop I discovered in downtown St. Pete located on Central Ave. The dress is made of red lace and has a pretty sheer mesh inset in the middle, making it one of the most unique pieces in my closet! I was so happy to find this piece after trolling through three different malls with absolutely no luck.
I paired the dress with a taupe Michael Kors crossbody and a pair of white pointed toe pumps. These shoes are one of my favorites because of the clear patent lining along the top. It’s a new and refreshing take on a classic shoe style.
