Valentine’s day has looked a little different the last few years. There hasn’t been much going out to dinner and getting drinks as often as we used to, and sometimes with Valentine’s day falling in the middle of the week, it makes it that much harder. But we know that this is just a season in our lives that will eventually go away and we will miss these days, so, for now, we are enjoying sharing every second of this time with our girls… including Valentine’s day. And if it’s Valentine’s day with my girls, it’s obviously Galentine’s day.

This year with the holiday of love falling on a random Thursday we have a fun filled day full of crafts, candy, and preparing to make daddy’s favorite dinner. But just because we’re staying in doesn’t mean we can’t dress up!

Happy week of love, friends!

The Perfect Dress for a Carolina Winter

If you’ve been following along with my blog posts you would know that I’m originally from New York and just recently moved to the Charlotte area to relocate for my husband’s job. It has been a huge change with a new home, no family around, and getting to know the new area.

So far I’ve loved the transition and am getting used to all the new aspects of my life, but the one thing that seems to make it all so worth it is this Carolina weather. The other day I ran errands in this dress and it was 62 degrees here, and 24 degrees in my hometown. That alone is worth the move down south.

Back in New York, January would be another sweater and boots month for me. Now that I’m in Charlotte I am loving that I get to wear these comfortable dresses to run errands when I leave the house.

Recently I received this adorable dress from PinkBlush, and it has been perfect for this time of year in the Carolina’s. For the last few months I wore tons of their maternity clothes, so when I learned that they also had women’s clothing I was all on board to try some of their regular items.

This Grey Striped Ruffle Trim dress is the perfect piece for this time of year. I love the light gray color, but it also comes in black or charcoal grey. If you like a dress with a cinched waistline this is the dress for you. It hugs my waist right where I want it to without being too tight. I absolutely love the ruffle trim bottom and sleeves which give it some character. The material is so soft but is thick enough to feel comfortable wearing. One of the best parts about it is this dress has pockets. C’mon ladies, you know you love a good pocket dress.

Check out PinkBlush‘s website for some of their adorable clothing items. If you’re interested in more outfit ideas with PinkBlush, check out some of my recent blog posts with some of their amazing pieces:

Comfy and Ready for Fall

This is the hard transition when my brain is into everything fall, but the weather is not. The mornings here in New York start off slightly chilly, but it’s usually a comfortable 70 degrees by the end of the day. That is why I love outfits that can suit both temperatures, without making me freeze or sweat.

I am currently crushing on sleeveless knit cardigans like this one from Dresslily. It is so thick and soft for these fall temps, but can still keep me comfortable if it heats up. It is out of stock right now, but I will keep you posted when it comes back in.

Right now at Dresslily you can use the code BRITTA to get 12% off over $25. They have tons of other adorable tops and cardigans that are perfect for this transition from summer to fall.

Enjoy your fall weather, friends!
