on 14th street

 I feel like it's a mixed bag with Valentine's Day. Some people love it and some people hate it. I love it. It has nothing to do with having a significant other, because more often than not, I don't. I love pink and red, glitter, heart shaped everything, friendship, love. And for those who believe it's a holiday made up by Hallmark. I also love Hallmark. Christmas movies aside, that company has a really amazing history and it essentially started with an 18 year old in 1910 selling postcards. The postcards led to selling valentines and Christmas cards as a way to build a life and pay off debt. They added more as their company grew larger!

As for the dress :)

I found this red dress on sale at Nordstrom and while it's sold out now, I compiled some similar options below. I also included two pink options in case red isn't your color. I love this dress. If I could choose one style of dress to wear forever, it would be a shift dress. And the best part about it? The bow-tied sleeves! I've been dying to wear this dress as soon as I opened the package, it's so good! A few things I love in a dress? Sleeves, but a shorter hemline. Interesting details, but unfussy. Quality fabric. 

These flats are from Sole Society and I think they are the only shoes that I've never had to break in before. So. Comfortable. I ordered the dark grey and while I did have this dress in mind when I was buying them, I've worn them with a ton of other outfits. They are perfect for work and clearly I have a thing for tie details...
