Will You Be My Valentine?

I was rummaging through my closet, looking for outfit ideas for our Valentine's Day date. I don't usually go for the somewhat cliche red dress, but I came across this dress I bought a while back that I haven't had a chance to wear yet. As soon as I put it on with my new Banana Republic necklace, I decided this will be it. What do think?

Dress: Ralph Lauren ( currently not available in red, but I also love the navy version), Coat: Ralph Lauren Collection (old, also love this), Black velvet pumps: M.Gemi, Necklace: Banana Republic

Another Sunny Afternoon

The weather has been very mild for February. I am not complaining. As much as I love a snow covered landscape, by mid-February I am usually ready for spring to arrive. I know, warmth is still weeks if not months away, but these last couple of mild weekends allowed me to shed the wool coats and heavy layers and I am grateful for that. Here I am wearing my favorite camel hair blazer. I just love how camel goes with everything!
