How to wear hearts after Valentine’s day

Valentine’s day is over, but your love affair with hearts is not. What’s a girl to do? Never fear! This post will help you sneak hearts into your wardrobe all year round.

One way to wear hearts year round is to find a smaller more subtle heart pattern, like the chambray top I’m wearing below. From a distance, it looks like polka dots.

Another way to wear hearts is in your accessories. I have heart earrings and heart socks on as well. You could also wear necklaces, rings and bracelets with hearts or heart tights.

If you want to go big and bold, you could wear a top with a gigantic heart on it and layer a jacket or a blazer over it.

The same goes for a skirt or top. Wear a heart dress with a cute little cardigan. Or wear the skirt with a solid color top.

Those cute little sweaters with the heart patches on the elbow are also a good year round pick. Until it’s too warm to wear a sweater, that is.

And furthermore, why not wear a swimsuit with hearts in the summer with a cute cover-up?

Keep in mind, hearts aren’t  nearly as big of a no no after Valentine’s day as say, wearing Santa / Christmasey stuff is, so no worries if it’s after Valentine’s day and you still want to keep going with all the cute little heart clothing you own. Usually just toning it down a bit is enough to not look overly ‘Valentinesy’ after Valentine’s day.

Happy weekend everyone! Monday I start a new job as a medical assistant for a counseling office. I’ll be working with a couple of people I worked with at another counseling office. So excited to be working with them again! Wish me luck.

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
