Happy heart day!

OOTD Feb 14 2010

Outfit Details:

cardigan - Old Navy, blouse - Max Studio, skirt - Baia, shoes - Nine West, necklace - Macys

After spending two days of family fun at Great Wolf Lodge with our friends, we're taking it easy for Valentine's Day to re-coup our energy. We're planning to give Maya her dinner and put her to bed early so that we can enjoy a toddler-free homecooked meal made by DH! Caesar salad, lobster tails, and filet mignon... mmmm...

I decided that a quiet day like today was perfect for doing a little digging in my closet. After only a few minutes sorting through my blouses, I came up with this cute little brick red shirt, namely for the darling heart detail. It's actually a hand-me-down from one of my BFFs. She's 6' tall, so normally we can't share clothes (unless she wears my pants as capris), but unluckily for her this top shrunk at the cleaners and became a perfect fit for me!

I paired it with this tweed skirt that I scored during my bargain finds last month. I bought it because it looked similar to Anthropologie's Twilit skirt which I had been eyeing. The flat pockets on my version are more flattering on me than the pockets on the Twilit skirt, and the bows are just too adorable. I decided to go all out with a sparkly cardigan (which I bought maybe 5-6 years ago, and haven't worn it in years) and a necklace that DH gave me many moons ago on another Valentine's Day. Finally, I put on my favourite pair of heels. I adore these shoes so much that I'm irrationally worried about wearing them out.

Although the blouse was the piece I was building around, I ended up with four items that I've had which don't get worn enough -- blouse, cardigan, necklace, shoes. Not bad!

I love this outfit! It's perfect for Valentine's Day. And what a great cardigan. I 'm surprised it's from Old Navy. Your shoes go well with the cardigan, too.
