Love Dust: A Simple Look For Valentines Day

by - February 14, 2015

Happy Valentine's Day Loves! 
This is officially the second time I've ever worn a dress on this blog; I'm really not a dress person and never been. Infact, I dont believe I owned a skirt until I was in the 8th grade :|. Give me a tailored pants, skinny jeans or shorts and I will feel right at home.[tomboy in recovery lol]  Valentine's Day aka break out that grown and sexy dress day however calls for a CHANGE!

This beautiful blush midi dress was gifted to me this past Christmas and since I have yet to wear it, I thought what better time than Valentine's Day?! I've never owned a midi dress before, being only 5ft I sometimes disregard some garments as I figure they might not complement my figure so well. BUT to my surprise, this babe of a dress was just perfect!

If you're planning to head out for a nice dinner with your other half, I definitely recommend a nice midi. These dresses are possibly the easiest way to achieve a modest vintage-chic ensemble and provide a great canvas to build on with your choice of accessories.  As you can see I kept it really simple here, adding neutral pumps and a single bracelet. The next time I wear this dress, I plan to really amplify the look with a chunky earring and a nice classic clutch purse to add to the vintage flair.

As far as Valentine's Day goes I have no actual plans yet but I wouldnt be mad if it turned out to be a pizza, Netflix and Moscato type of night.  I do hope your Valentine's Day will be filled with tons of Chocolate/ Cheesecake/Red Velvet Cake, Roses and most of all LOVE!

Special thank you to my boyfriend/ Valentine, Gavin who so graciously loaned me his back-side for these photos lol.

Oh and before I sign off - Please help me wish my AMAZING photographer STEVEN SMITH a HAPPY Happy Birthday as he celebrates his birthday on February 14th. He is truly the backbone of this blog! Love you Stevie!
