Red Dots Romance.

Welcome to the second week of February which also happens to be Valentine's Week. What are your plans for Valentine's day/weekend? On Friday and Saturday actually, I will be going with Vivian to a couple of birthday parties. A first and a second Birthday on the 13th and on the 14th respectively. It should be fun. I might do something low-key and simple like a romantic lunch at home with my husband, on Sunday. This week, my outfits will have little winks to Valentine's day, like some red, some pink, some burgundy or some girly elements.
...Like this Outfit which I am titling "Red Dots Romance". This would be perfect for a Valentine's Dinner Date. It is Dressy yet still Pretty Casual because not everyone wants to be in a Cocktail Dress. And to be honest with you it is freezing here this week. It is supposed to be one of our coldest weeks for the Winter. I am still keeping warm with these Velvet B+W Polka Dot Tights, a Red Sequined Sweater featuring a peek-a-boo sexy back tied into a Red Satin Bow, My Marsala Oxford Pumps and a Leopard Clutch (that is more spots). I kept the Jewelry, Hair and Makeup quite simple. I am wearing a Dainty Real Gold Heart Necklace, Dainty little Ruby+Diamond Hoops and a Ruby+Diamond Silver Ring. All of these Fine Jewelry pieces have been previous Valentine's gifts from my husband. Of course Red Lips were a given and I added a tiny little Red Bow Pin to my bun off the side, in a way mimicking the Bow on the Sweater. What do you think? Wearing some Red, Burgundy (Marsala) or Dots this Valentine's?
