I know some people hate Valentine’s Day but I think it’s quite a lovely holiday if I do say so myself. There’s candy (which I LOVE) and an opportunity to tell the people closest to you how much you love them. What’s bad about that?
In college, my best friend Kelly and I always exchanged Valentine’s little happies (what I like to call a small gift). Just something little to share the love. In honor of our little tradition, I came up with a gift guide for the great gals in your life. It could be your mom, your sister, your best friend or coworker – but everyone has a lady in their life that makes them smile. Why not show them the love this Valentine’s Day?
Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend. But now it’s back to work and to get things started, I figured I’d share a typical work outfit for me. I wore this outfit last week when I was running around town for meetings. Just the right combination of comfortable and business casual appropriate.
I couldn’t wait to wear this blouse when I spotted it on the sale rack at J.Crew last week. I’d been eying it since it was all over their catalog a couple months back but the price tag ($135!!!) stopped me. But after being marked down and then getting an additional 30% off last week during their sale, I was happy to get it for more than half off! Not exactly the most summery item in my closet but it was perfect for work.
I’ve got a bunch of stuff that I’m excited about sharing this week – especially some stuff I’ve been behind on posting – so make sure to check back. Have a great week!

Valentine’s Day. Some people love it. Some people hate.
Me. I’m somewhere in the middle. I’m not a go all out kind of gal but I can’t help but like the sentiment behind a day that’s all about telling people you love them (in a good way, not the creepy way).
And so to celebrate the holiday of love, here’s some red & pink valentine treats to get you in the celebrating mood.
