A few weeks before Sanny was born in 2016, we took a trip down to Carlsbad, California (about an hour and a half south of us) for a weekend getaway. It was over Valentine’s Day and the hotel had a kid club, so we left B and Fos and snuck off for a romantic dinner for two.
I had made myself this bow stamped dress and I wore it out to the restaurant for dinner, and while we were waiting for our table, an older woman stopped me and complimented me on my outfit. She said, “I just love that you’re dressed up! No one dresses up to go out to dinner anymore.”
It was just a quick comment, but it’s stuck with me. It’s true — people don’t dress up. But sometimes it’s so fun to get dressed up, just because.
You know I love a new dress for holidays, and Valentine’s Day is no exception.
The moment I saw this Needle and Thread dress in BHLDN’s occasion collection, I was in love. Every detail is exquisite and incredible, and it’s truly a work of art, and this type of sparkly dress is perfect for a fancy Valentine’s Day date this month!
