Blue tiered maxi dress and cherry blossoms

Hope you all had a lovely Easter. The rain has finally stopped for a bit here in Oregon. So out we went in search of cherry blossoms that hadn’t been pounded right off the trees by all the rain and wind. If you seek, you may still find some. We did.

I found this cute denim blue tiered, smocked waist dress at Ross. I saw it about a month ago, and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so had to retrace my steps back to the Ross I saw it at to see if it was still there. Oh joy! It was. Of course, I have a gift card to spend at TJ Max, Marshall’s or Home Goods, and haven’t been able to find anything there, but found three things at Ross. Isn’t that how it always goes? And this is why I hate gift cards so much. Hate is a pretty strong word. I dislike gift cards. I’d rather spend my money wherever I find stuff. Perhaps another day or another time I’ll find something to use my gift card on…

Date night outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day

Here comes Valentine’s day, here comes Valentine’s day, right down Valentine’s day lane. Okay, that’s not a song. But I think there is a here comes Santa Claus song like that, so I’m going with it. So there.

If you don’t have your Valentine’s date night outfit together yet, fear not, this post is for you.

I had the most marvelous time perusing the ModCloth website. They have such cute, whimsical vintage-y type stuff on their website. So much fun! And their Valentine’s day stuff is just too adorable. I love their website! So many unique, yet feminine, things to chose from.

 

Date night outfit ideas

 

 

As much as I love all the heart stuff, this pink, white and purple envelope print dress really caught my eye. I used to love sending and receiving mail growing up. As a missionary kid to Papua New Guinea, mail was our lifeline to everyone we left behind. I still love receiving mail via snail mail even though I don’t send it as often as I used to. Nothing like that nostalgic feeling you get when you receive a letter you can hold in your hands and open it up and re-read it over and over again.

Just like I love to read books I can hold rather than read them on a kindle. There’s just something to being able to have something tangible to hold on to rather than just staring at a screen while reading something.

This year, try sending a written love note to that special someone – perhaps even through the mail. Or set up a cute mail box to sneak Valentine’s to someone who lives with you.

Also, there’s still time to send that special someone a Valentine’s day bouquet. Save 25% off flowers from The Bouqs with code: VDAY25 until February 14th.

Pretty bouquets
