Hello everyone. Merry commercialism day.. a.k.a. Happy Valentine's Day! Haha. I hope the weekend has been treating you well.
With the exception of the last photo, every picture was edited exactly the same, but for some reason my tights appear more vibrant and red in some photos, and more subdued and burgundy in others. I don't know why? Maybe it was the way the sun was setting at the time, capturing different lighting in each shot. Oh well, I'm still pleased with how each image manifested itself.
This dress I've had in my wardrobe for a couple of years now, and has appeared on the blog on more than one occasion, because it is probably my favorite dress that I own. It is incredibly versatile in that I can mix and match countless items and accessories with it.. it's such a fun piece to style! I thought I'd do a little Valentine's day post wearing the dress, because at the risk of sounding cheesy (here I go) it is the perfect "date night" dress. Haha my husband and I are going all out this year and having dinner at one of our favorite restaurants for the silly holiday (let's be honest though.. Valentine's day is kinda cute), and this is a look I put together for the occasion, but it is also a look I would wear on the everyday. Whether or not I actually wear the dress to dinner remains to be seen (who knows.. I could come up with an entirely different ensemble by tonight haha).
Oh and I actually styled my hair differently for a change. Since I work in a restaurant, I have to constantly have my hair up, so this has forced me to be more creative with how I style up-dos. This look is super easy, just a super high, messy ponytail using an elastic hair tie. I don't wear my hair up often outside of work, but this is an exception. :)
What are some of your favorite "going out" looks? And are there any hairstyles that you don't normally sport, but have been wanting to try? I always love to hear your thoughts, you're all so inspiring.
I hope I've also inspired you. And I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, Valentine's day, anti-Valentine's day...? What I mean is, wherever you are and whatever you're up to, I hope it's beautiful.
Love to you all. =^.^=
