Valentine’s day is less than a week away! Since it happens to fall on a Sunday this year, we’re sharing a chic brunch/daytime Valentine’s outfit idea! This dress is so perfectly elegant with a feminine, form fitting silhouette. I paired it with a sexy pair of strappy nude sandals but layered a heavy wool coat over it to balance the ensemble. Romantic waves and sparkly jewelry finished off the look! (Check out my Valentine’s Date Night post here!)

On a side note: this bag I’m carrying was the first designer bag Chris ever bought me – 10 years ago! It was early on when we first started dating and Louis Vuitton had just announced it would be releasing a new Damier colorway, the Azur. I was smitten with it and every time we were at the mall (who am I kidding, I was at San Diego’s Fashion Valley Mall all the time), I’d want to stop in the Louis Vuitton store to drool over the display bags and ask about the release. Well, the day the Damier Azur print was available, we were of course at the mall and I did the usual, “Do you mind if we pop in just to look?” Chris obliged and we waltzed right in. I asked if I could see the new bag just to get an idea of what it looked like in real life when Chris interrupted me and said, “Actually, you should ask them, they might have one for you.” I just froze – partially out of confusion and partially out of just sheer shock lol! The sales associate didn’t even hesitate as Chris told her the name on the order, she walked into the back area and came out with a beautiful wrapped box and handed it to me. I was so giddy – smiling from ear to ear! Such an incredibly romantic and thoughtful surprise! Ten years ago and it still feels like yesterday I felt so nostalgic carrying it again & perfect for Valentines! What are you planning to wear?
