Chelsea and Ginny Take On: Valentine's Day


Today I'm excited to be back for another addition of Chelsea from Whatcha Makin' Now and my series, where we "Take On" something.  This week, we're taking on Valentine's Day.  Brian and I get so few date nights, the chance to get dressed up and go out is one I'm always excited about. 

I've been on the hunt for the perfect LBD for quite some time.  I tried on this on and I had high hops, but I was between sizes.  I really wanted to find one by Valentine's Day, but then I remembered this eyelet version from Loft.  It's not a LBD, but I do love how it fits and I think it'll be perfect for a date night with Brian. Then, as it always happens, the day after I took these pictures I found  this dress at Target for $8.  I'm still set to wear this cute outfit with Brian, but my LBD is going to make an appearance soon. 

Also, I'm super excited for Jenn and my Style Swap link-up that starts this Friday.  Check on the details on how to link up here.  I can't wait to see your posts!







Cardigan: J.Crew same
Dress: Loft (thrifted) similar
Belt: Kohl's
Necklace: Stella and Dot  Phoenix
Bracelets: Stella and Dot RenegadeUrbane
Heels: Nine West  same

Today Chelsea at Whatcha Makin' Now has made some delicious cookies.  Make sure to head over there to get the recipe!

  3. I have a dress that is almost identical to the Loft one from Lands End. The ponte material is so comfortable! If you're still looking next fall I suggest checking out LE because I think they bring back a version every year.

  10. Even though this isn't your typical "LBD" I can definitely see you getting a lot of remixing wear out of it! And I'm totally ga-ga over that necklace :)

  11. Haha at first I thought you meant the dress you were wearing was $8 oh boy. But the one at Target is nice too. But the one you ARE wearing is a stunner.

  12. This dress DOES look awesome on you. And how perfectly does that belt match? This is going to sound creepy, but you know I'll say it anyway. You have awesome calves. And taste in jewelry. (That second part wasn't creepy; I was trying to offset the first part.)

    The dress is great! Loft can be so great with little treasures like that! Reminds me that I haven't shopped their stuff lately!

  21. The pattern and texture of that dress is so pretty!!
    I feel like I've already found my own perfect LBD. It's a dress I've worn so often in so many ways...and strangely, I didn't even pick it out, the husband saw a dress in a brand he'd heard me mention before in my size on Ebay and bought it as a surprise, and it turned out to be perfect! I was incredibly surprised.
