The Little Red Dress

Holy sh!t. This past weekend was LIT. I don't even know how my brain has the capacity to function to the fullest it is right now. Thank you to everyone that reached out and wished me a happy birthday!!


Last week was the perfect way to ring in my 29th. Next up on my radar (besides celebrating more Aqua birthdays & NYFW) is Valentine's Day.

I'm definitely going to take advantage of the three day weekend and dress up each day (weather permitting) and treat myself to a few amazing sit-down meals in the city.


Of course, I went back to Express to see what caught my eye. Besides these gorgeous pink slacks (hella affordable compared to these) I found this fit and flare dress.

The color is spot on for the 14th and could still be re-worn for a few other things I have coming up: baby showers, bridal parties, boozy brunches.


Dress: Express  Coat: Marc New York (Under $120 & warm!)   Tights: Calvin Klein  Boots: Sam Edelman (save with this versionPurse: Rebecca Minkoff (& under $90!!)  Lipstick: Raspberry Blush via Pixi

Since we're talking date night, I wanted the dress be the main focal point (the fit is amazing on my frame) and keep everything else black. And of course, black tights because it is still too cold to be without them. Temps are slated to be under 10 degrees all weekend long so make sure you invest in some fleece tights before then.

Don't forget to visit last week's post on the other two dresses I'm wearing this weekend.

What are you wearing for Valentine's (or Galentine's) Day? Let me know in the comments down below.
