Valentine's Day.

Love is in the air! I don't know about you but I think it's silly to only celebrate love around Valentine's Day. I'm all for appreciating your significant other all throughout the year, not just on one particular day. However, it's always a nice excuse for a date night, getaway or even just some fresh flowers. 

For this year's Valentine's Day look, I kept it pretty classic, but with a bit of a twist. I love this Ayelette Cut-Out cocktail dress from Self Portrait. I wore it to our Christmas Eve party that we hosted this past year and meant to post it to the blog then, but wasn't able to get around to it with all the holiday craziness!

But it's the perfect dress for Valentine's Day!  It's a gorgeous fit-and-flare, off the shoulder style, that features a draped cross front and beautifully engineered bodice. The structured waistband is very figure flattering and I love the way the deep pleats add a bit of drama to the midi skirt. It's elegant, chic and the perfect dress for an evening out with my hubs.

This is the second dress that I've purchased from Self Portrait (I also bought the Azaelea Dress, click here for pics), and love that their decidedly feminine looks are always executed with a devilish wink.

The way Dennis's work schedule is he's not always home for Valentine's Day, but he will be this year!! We decided to keep things simple this February 14th and celebrate with a nice romantic evening out at one of our favourite restaurants here in Kelowna, Quail's Gate Winery's Old Vines Restaurant. Happy Love Day Everyone!!
