Sequins and Sea Breezes: Feelin' Lacy

Happy Valentine's Day and happy Friday dolls!

I know most people wear pink or red or florals for Valentine's Day but I've never really been a "pink" girl. I don't think a lot of pink looks overly great with my skin tone and while I do love red I don't love red when I'm as pale as I am but I ALWAYS love blue. I really think blue looks great on anyone and navy is such a royal color in my opinion. That's why for Valentine's Day I decided to forgo the usual V-Day attire and go for something more me. I actually bought this lace one-shoulder navy dress for my birthday and completely forgot about it until I saw Kate Middleton sporting a very similar dress on her North American tour. I knew at that point I HAD to find a reason to wear it again so why not Valentine's Day? *Update: Kate also wore blue this Valentine's Day :) * Continuing with the Princess Kate look, I paired the dress with nude heels, minimal jewelry and a neutral clutch. Now if only I could find the perfect fascinator... ;) 

 I'm not even going to lie, I'm not a big Valentine's Day person. I don't usually like to go out on Valentine's Day because I feel like the service is never as good and why would I want to spend Valentine's Day crammed in a restaurant with a bunch of people I don't know all trying to have a romantic moment with their significant other? I definitely don't fault anyone who is super into Valentine's Day, it's just not really my style. I am however totally down to order in Chinese takeout and drink a bottle of wine... but I'd be down for that any day of the week!

  4. Oh my gosh can you look anymore more beautiful and smoking hot in this pic?? I totally agree staying in and having a fabulous dinner is so much better then going out and dealing with awful service and prix fixe menus. I have never heard of Model Co lips...it is stunning on you. Can you snag it at Sephora by any chance? Hope you have a fabulous night girl xooxxo

    1. You are too freaking sweet Amanda! <3 I had never heard of ModelCo either until I got it in my Birchbox! They're based out of Sydney Australia so I don't know where you can actually buy their stuff other than online. :( I hope you had a fabulous night last night! Oh, and I didn't have any champagne leftover... why am I not surprised?!? ;)
