Happy Valentine’s Day loves ♥ Can you believe it is already February 14th? It feels like New Years Eve was only yesterday, and here we are celebrating Valentine’s Day! The husband and I had a wonderful weekend celebrating my sister-in-law’s birthday with my siblings at the Barley Brewing Company in the Short North. While I am not a beer connoisseur, I will say Barley has a great atmosphere, fabulous staff and good food! My sister has a gluten allergy, and the staff was absolutely fabulous and so professional making sure she had food that fit within her dietary guidelines! Since Valentine’s Day fell on a Tuesday this year, Dave and I are going to have a romantic date night at home with some grilled steaks, asparagus and a nice fire ♥ Needless to say, I will not be donning a dress and heels this evening, but I did have a chance to dress up over the weekend…
I think every gal should have a classic white cocktail dress or two in their wardrobe. While white dresses are traditionally geared for brides and brides-to-be, I think it’s time we break with tradition! I will be honest, white dresses did not make an appearance in my wardrobe until I got engaged, BUT cannot imagine life without them ♥ Whether you need a glamorous look for a night out on the town or a simple country chic ensemble, the versatility of a classic white dress is endless!
While the one above is no longer available, I did find four wonderful, unique options for you to choose from:
- Elegant Evolution A-Line Dress in Ivory by Wendy Bird at Modcloth for $175.00
- An Evening With You Lace Dress at Ruche for $52.00
- Lace Crepe Dress by Lauren Ralph Lauren at Macy’s for $194.00
- Batwing Drawstring Waist Minidress by Topshop at Nordstrom for $35.00
If you are looking for some fabulous red accessories like the ones shown above, I highly recommend a pair of red Jessica Simpson heels, such as the Cassini Pumps available at Macy’s ♥ As for necklaces, any color and style will go with a classic white dress! If you need some inspiration, I would check out the Oval Lucite Necklace from JCREW and the Zoey Necklace by Perry Street available through Rocksbox ♥ I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
