I know from the looks of this post that we are going out for Valentine’s Day! LOL We are not!! Just giving you a little embroidered outfit inspo!! Ben actually will be studying for an exam he has on Wednesday and then we will celebrate Wednesday night 🙂 I am still not sure what we are going to do! We have never been big on going out for Valentine’s Day! We will stay in and do something fun for sure!! I am really looking forward to just being together!  Here are a few things I am considering for tomorrow night:

  •  Make a wine and cheese spread.
  • Have an indoor picnic
  • Have an outside picnic under the stars.
  • Have a candle light dinner.
  • Wine or beer tasting.
  • Make sushi together.
  • Have a game night or Play Video games together.
  • Do a puzzle together.
  • Make a Home made Pizza.
  • Watch the first movie you ever watched together.
  • Write your bucket list.
  • Exchange foot & back massages.
  • Give each other a facial.
  • Draw or paint portraits of each other. (This could be hilarious)!
  • Look at your old photos and photo albums.

As you can see I am still wearing all things embroidery! This dress is so much fun! I thought to myself, it is perfect for date night or any formal event!! It is a great piece to have in the closet for when you have to get all dressed up.  I love the mesh detail with the flowers and embroidery!! It is so fun and girly which is totally my style!! What are your thoughts on the mesh trend that is pretty hot right now?! I would love to hear your thoughts!!  What ever you plan on doing tomorrow night, have the best time, whether with friends, kids or your significant other! XO

Much love,
