Valentine’s Look: Black on Black

Valentine's Day

I own a lot (I mean, a LOT) of black clothing. As a busy mom, I find it so versatile and easy to grab and go when I’m hustling to get ready for dinner or an evening out — and Valentine’s Day is no exception. While red or pink are often the expected color choices for the holiday, I opted for black on black for our early Valentine’s Day date night last weekend. And I got to show off a little sparkle too with this beautiful beaded A. Tak Crafts necklace — y’all, isn’t it just so pretty?!

The weather is already in the 80s here in Houston but I wasn’t ready to put away the suede just yet! These riding leggings (similar) are so comfortable, very good quality and they’ve been a staple in my closet over the last year as I lost the baby weight. Plus, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to break out the holiday sparkle again! I snagged these J.Crew glitter heels on major markdown during the holidays (but these are similar!) and with the pop of my red envelope clutch and a pretty cuff, this gorgeous statement necklace (c/o) and a red lip… done.

By the way, Ashley has a beautiful selection of necklaces and will also work with you to create the perfect custom piece! She’s doing big things… and if you aren’t already following her on Instagram, do it now! I’m really excited for her new site, coming soon! Be sure you sign up to get notified of the launch.

I’m looking forward to spending the day doing fun things with my little boy, just the two of us. Tonight we’ll all lay low with a homecooked paleo dinner at home. Dr. P and I will exchange cards and probably watch a show or two — and likely go to bed early. Sounds like the perfect night to me! How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
