The Creative Closet || Will You Be My Valentine?

2.10.2015
Valentine's Day is not normally my thing. I've always found it silly that we have a national holiday about loving your significant other and showering them with gifts and romantic gestures on a single day of the year. My husband has gotten off easy since before we were married because I told him I despise the cheesiness of roses and chocolates. It's so... typical. And in fact feels the opposite of romantic considering every other woman in America is receiving the exact same gift most likely. (There is nothing wrong if you like receiving those items! I just personally... don't.)

This year I do feel a bit differently. I am seriously blaming it on the pregnancy hormones, but I'm acting as a bit of a sap. More than anything I'm just thankful for my Valentine this year. The man I married has become such a rock in my foundation. He challenges me, constantly keeps me laughing and encourages me like no one else can. Watching him change throughout the last 8 months from being just a husband to adding the role of father has been such a delight. Maddox will grow up with the most wonderful role model in his life. That's the perfect gift this Valentine's Day! It's all I could ever want.

Cue the tears.... #hormones #sheesh

PS. Pair your Valentines Day outfit with this easy 5-Step braid I shared yesterday for a fun look!


How great do these ladies look? Jana and Rachel both are going to knock their mens' socks off!

  1. i think the pregnancy hormones are making me more "into" valentines day this year too! we usually dont go out for the holiday but i talked h into taking me to brunch at one of my favorite spots :) i think it might be the realization that date nights might be a little tough in the next few months! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  5. ahhh, I love this dress! SO pretty! I've never been a big fan of Valentine's either!! We usually just go out to eat, nowhere special & fancy! Which is normal for us any other day of the week too, ha!

  6. You look simply stunning! And, what a sweet tribute to your husband - I can only imagine that it's a rewarding and emotional experience to watch your significant other come into the parenting role.

  7. Gor. Geous. I love this look--that dress is stunning on you and I love your bright lips and nails. All together, and with the glittery bag, this makes the perfect Valentine's Day ensemble.

  8. I love a good white lace dress. Yours is gorgeous and you styled it so beautifully. It really shows off your bump. I am so glad I discovered your lovely link-up a few weeks ago and have been able to follow the prompts, as well. =)

    Happy Valentine's Meagan!

  13. Your clutch and earrings are to die for! This whole outfit is so classy and fun! Tyler and I have always had the worst luck on Valentine's day so we have yet to ever make it a big deal in the 3 years we've been together. I don't mind the reminder to show appreciation for your significant other, but I totally agree that one day shouldn't be the be all end all!

  14. You're stunning - as usual but this one is really elegant. I love the lipstick paired with the neutral outfit. Also... I'm with you 100% on the Valentine's Day stuff. David didn't even know when it was!

  18. This is SO cute! I love the dress on you, and the clutch is adorable! I'm such a sucker for glittery and shiny things. :) I love that you did bold nails and lips to brighten it up. So pretty! How funny, I'm finding so many people don't like Valentine's day. I love it, always have. I think it's so fun and pretty. I guess KC and I have never done the traditional gifts or activities... so maybe that's why I don't feel like it's as commercial as some do... ? I dunno. Either way, I am a sucker for pretty much any holiday... :) Such a fun linkup! XO -Alexandra

  20. You can blame pregnancy hormones for absolutely everything!! It seriously messes with our feelings lol. I'm a bit the same - I think it's funny that Valentine's Day is such a marketing ploy - and that it worked so well!! - but then again, at the same time I'm a hopeless romantic every other day of the year so I can't get too annoyed by the 14th. :) I just prefer when I get the romantic gestures on other days!

    Your outfit is lovely - the lace is so pretty, the gold clutch and accessories are the perfect amount of bling, and the lippy & nail color rocks! :) Love this!! You look great!
