Romance is in the Air - Week 2

I decided to run this series for the whole month of February, even though today is Valentines Day and after today we will be buying our heart shaped chocolates at fifty percent off. Even though the special day is over, doesn't mean romance should be. 

Today's post centers around a dress that I have had for a few years.

It's a simple pull on dress made from a heavier weight silky material that stretches in all the right places. It has short flutter sleeves, which I did not take a picture of since it was cold. It also has an A-line shape, being more gathered and fitted in the bust area, then flaring out.

For my topper I added a white lace hoodie that I found at a thrift store. I thought it was the perfect way to add a layer of warmth, but still keep with the feminine and romantic vibe of the outfit.

Here you can see the detail of the lace fabric.

The only jewelry I opted to wear was this lovely brooch.

I kept my shoes and bag more of a neutral color, but used my bag with some bling.

Once again, I wear nude support hose to help give my legs shape and compress some of the varicose veins. Ladies, if you have these you know what I am talking about. Some day I need to get these treated, since they have better ways of doing things now than they used to.

What are you doing for Valentine's Day? My husband and I went to see Elvis Lives, this past Thursday evening as part of our celebration, but we probably will go out for dinner tonight. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think of this outfit in the comments section below, or comment on Facebook. You can also visit my Instagram and Pinterest pages as well. They are a work in progress, just like me.

Here are some possible dresses and cardi's that would give a similar look to what I have on.

I just noticed the Lord & Taylor is sold out. Sorry about that. I am knew to these affiliate links and when I worked on the post yesterday everything still had inventory. Shows how fast things can go.
