Heart You

pink red heart wall chicago

As much of an overload as Valentine’s Day can be, I can’t help but love all of the pink. While I can admit that some the candy and teddy bears can be a bit on the tacky side, I take February as an excuse to have a little pop of pink wherever I can… Flowers at Whole Foods, lipstick, a brightly-colored clutch, and even the heart cookies at Starbucks! However when it comes to clothing, I much prefer blush pink. I saw this dress at Nordstrom and knew I had to have it for spring. Between the fit & flare shape and the subtle gold and pink jacquard fabric, I was sold! It’s the perfect dress for Easter or any of the showers you might have coming up over the next few months.

    Love the blush pink! It is one of my favorite hues of pink as well! I agree, Valentine’s Day can be corny but it can also be adorable and I love pink and red so I totally embrace it. Have a good one!
