If you’re a new, more recent reader then I have to tell you I do not like Valentine’s day – as I discussed last year here. Over here it has morphed into something not only lovers celebrate, but also something children are expected to take part in at school. Last night we decorated shoe boxes that will hold all the candies they exchange in class today. Uuurgh I just think it is such a marketing con. MM and I have never exchanged cards in the twenty something years we’ve been together. He tells me it’s Valentine’s Day every day in our house and I tend to agree. If you need to set aside a day of the year to appreciate your loved one then there is something wrong.
Okay rant over. I have tried to embrace it in my outfit for today – choosing the J.Crew heartbreaker jumper – and even my jewelry consists of Tiffany’s and pearls so I really am trying to get into the spirit of it!
Shoes – Tory Burch navy Eddie flats // Trousers – Zara tweed harems // Jumper – J.Crew heartbreaker jumper // Jacket – Gap denim (old – similar here) // Pearl bracelets – random from Target // Silver bracelets – Tiffany & Co
I couldn’t help but notice how Spring like it felt this morning – shoots rising from the ground and blue skies above me. Love it!
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
