As much as I love and look forward to New York fashion week, the one thing that makes me a bit blue is the fact that since my husband doesn’t always travel with me and Valentine’s Day happens to be right in the middle of NYFW, we don’t always get to spend this day together. Normally, we celebrate after I come back, but this year Emil planned our V Day celebration prior to my leave, which was definitely a nice surprise!
Since our date involved some activities during the day, I decided to forgo my usual cocktail dress and partnered with Express for this cute pencil skirt and a black off the shoulder bodysuit. I fell in love with this skirt the moment I saw it! Classic shape and fit, the side zip give it that special, sexy detail that I always look for in evening wear. For today’s look, I paired it with a bodysuit, which should be no surprise to anyone at this point, since I’ve been so obsessed with them lately! The fact that this particular one is off-shoulder was why I love it so much. Certainly perfect to wear with jeans for day, paired with more tailored pieces like pencil skirts for example, creates a very feminine and elegant look, and gives an outfit a very romantic vibe.
A good outfit sets the day, and we had a lovely one together. We started our date at Laduree in Beverly Hills, a place we are both rather obsessed with at the moment. Deserts are absolutely fantastic and we also love their cocktails! Then, Emil took me to dinner to a restaurant we used to go to a lot when we first started dating — Petrossian. We hadn’t been in a while, so it was a sweet moment to revisit one of our favorite places!
What are your Valentine’s Day plans this year?
