I have had this red dress for over a year but I haven't gotten around to wearing it. It is short sleeved so I decided to to use black as my second color. I usually do not like pairing black and red together - I don't know why. Maybe it was all of those Babysitters Club books and Claudia that only wore black, red and white. I guess it just always feels dated to me!
We kind of wing Valentine's Day every year. Sometimes we go out, sometimes we stay in, sometimes we forget. But this year was special because we brought my son along. My husband showed my son how to formally ask a lady out on a "date", pull her chair out, napkin on your lap, etc. It was fun. My son said he had a wonderful Valentine's Day. That my MY heart bust. If he's happy, I'm happy. I was and still am so overwhelmed at how sweet and kind my husband is to his stepson.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day wearing red or all black or boycotting it all together! There have definitely been years that I have done that! This year though I am very thankful and I feel very loved.
