Dress: Banana Republic | Cardigan: Gap | Tights: Modcloth | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bracelets: INPink | Shoes: From Bachelorette Party

I received these hot pink pumps to wear for my bachelorette party (which was many moons ago) and I’m so happy to be able to fit into them again!  My feet grew half a size up during pregnancy, but thank goodness they shrank back down to normal size.  It would have been a real tragedy if none of my pre-pregnancy shoes fit anymore.  Although that could have been a good excuse to revamp my whole shoe closet.  ;)  And the tights?  Well it’s just the perfect occasion to wear tights full of hearts, isn’t it?

Valentine’s Week has already started off on the right foot!  Marvin and Austin sent me two dozen red roses, aren’t they sooo sweet?  We’re already training our son to treat ladies well.  ;)  OK, I can’t go there, thinking about my little A with another girl, will bring me to immediate tears.  For Valentine’s dinner, Marvin and I are planning on going out to have sushi, RAW SUSHI, it’s been over 10 months since I’ve had that yumminess and then some ice cream.  It will be our first date night out after having Austin.  I’m sure it will feel weird to be out without him, but couple time is important as well!

What are your Valentine’s Day plans?

    Your heart tights are absolutely adorable! Love them. we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s day too much. My birthday is so close that sometimes I just don’t think it’s worth it. However, my loving husband always sends me something sweet to work.
