Be My Valentine

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! If you haven’t already planned your outfit, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re going on a date with your guy or you’re headed out on the town with your girls, you’ll want to dress to impress!

I always have the urge to be cliché and wear pink and/or red on Valentine’s Day. When I saw this Sophie Theallet for The Limited dress, I knew it would be the perfect little number for February 14th. Since the day of love falls on a Thursday this year, I knew I needed a dress that would transition easily from my desk to dinner and beyond. Check back tomorrow to see how I styled this dress for the work day!

    What does it say about me that I immediately knew that was a Sophie Theallet dress from The Limited?

    Maybe that I spend WAY too much time on The Limited’s website and in their store…
