Valentine’s Day is a church sanctioned holiday deemed February 14 since 498 A.D. The exact origins of the celebration are somewhat unclear. It is still uncertain exactly who the celebrated saint of love really was.
According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl * who may have been his jailor’s daughter * who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.
However celebrated, I recommend breakfast in bed. A simple gesture that instantly makes one feel spoiled and loved.
This adorable romper by Free People will keep you cozy and in the mood to be pampered. The material is thin enough to layer and comfortable enough to want to wear all day. So if you do decide to get out of bed (not recommended), throw on some jeans and you are ready to go.
❤Happy Valentine’s Day!❤
Keeping with the romper theme, this weekend throw on this Jhumpa by Diane von Furstenberg. This silk jumpsuit is a fun and playful option for weekend festivities.
The golden amber color is novel and exotic. The silk fabric is delicate and feels like butter on the skin. The shape is flowing and comfortable, perfect for a warm day.
Wear the Jhumpa on it’s own with flats or wedges or pair with a silk cardigan and chunky heels. This beautiful burnish color creates a great canvas for accessories. Style with a ton of gold necklaces and/or bracelets or plant a pop of color and with turquoise stones or red-beaded earrings.
