Valentine’s Day OOTD

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your honey or Galentine’s Day with your besties, I’ve gathered some of my favorite looks that are sure to keep you looking & feeling your best.

You can never go wrong with a little black dress! This romantic-inspired style is from The Loft is under $100 and is perfect for dinner & drinks. I paired it with a statement heel & fringe earrings but you can easily rock it with a bold red pump or heeled ankle bootie. Click on the link below for purchasing details ūüôā

When I think of Valentine’s day I think of red & pink hues which makes this flutter sleeve dress perfect for a night out on Feb. 14th. I purchased this dress from Versona for under $50 but I’ve also linked some similar styles below.

Black on black is always in style & my go-to for a girls night out. Not only are the vertical pinstripes on these pants super slimming but they elongate this 5 ft nothing frame. Pants like these can easily be paired with a bodysuit or a crop top like I did here. Though I wasn’t able to link these exact items I’ve included similar styles; just follow the link!

Family, Fun & Fashion

I’m switching gears today.¬† Rather than focusing solely on style & outfit inspiration, or what local event I’m heading to, I’m incorporating the most important part of my life, my family.¬† This past weekend the hubs & I took our little man to¬†Oglebay, a¬†family friendly resort in West Virginia.¬† Creating holiday traditions as a threesome is¬†important to us which is what made this trip so special.

After we arrived at the resort & got settled into our rustic-inspired room we stopped by the lodge’s bar & grille for a quick bite, and a glass of vino for this mamma bear ūüėČ It didn’t take long before little man saw the pool & insisted we go for a swim.¬† This boy loves to swim & we love to relax in the hot tub, so it was a win-win!

At dusk we hopped into the car & headed to the Winter Carnival that consisted of a hay maze, hot chocolate & a wagon ride through beautifully lit Christmas lights.¬† We were graced with an unseasonably warm evening which only required lightweight layering pieces like this pink bomber jacket I snagged from TJ Maxx & little man’s new fleece from Target.

Afterwards, we went on to enjoy the Festival of Lights which is a 6 mile driving¬†tour of light displays.¬† Unfortunately,¬†due to poor planning on our part, the trolley tour was completely booked so we had to drive through the park ourselves.¬† We also wanted to take little man to meet Santa’s reindeer, but again reservations were booked – there’s always next year!

Overall, we had a great time & cannot wait to go back next year.  Of course, little man said his favorite part was the pool but if you ask me it was playing board games by the fire while listening to a live blue grass band & sipping vino.  Making memories & creating new traditions with my boys makes my heart so full!

The cozy cardigan I’m wearing above is from Stitch Fix & is by far my favorite cold weather layering piece.¬† It’s from two winters ago but we have similar styles at great prices right now! If you haven’t booked your Fix yet, be sure to do so; I’ve included a link for $25 off your 1st Fix too.
