Magenta Bell Sleeve Dress

Happy Monday! This magenta bell sleeve dress is one that I have had in my closet for a while, but I thought it would be perfect for those of you with romantic dinner plans or a night out with friends for Valentine’s Day. I linked several similar options below and the best part is that two of them are really affordable! My rock stud shoes are a dupe for the Valentino originals, but I linked the Valentino version in case you feel like getting fancy along with another dupe option! I have been dying over this YSL bag for a while now and it is at the top of my most wanted list. I have been dropping subtle hints to Russel for the last few weeks about what a fantastic Valentine’s gift this would be. After 15 years of marriage I have learned to leave nothing to chance when it comes to gift giving and he has learned that jewelry and handbags are the way to a girl’s heart!

Russel and I usually try to have a lunch date on Valentine’s Day and then spend the evening celebrating with the kids. With one teenager and one rapidly approaching the teenage years, I know boyfriends/girlfriends will soon occupy their Valentine’s Day plans, so I am soaking up every year I have left with them! What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? Leave me a comment and let me know!

All the ❤︎,
