Valentine Inspired 3

5pm today will not come soon enough. I am so looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow...and hopefully not much else. I love when I don't have a list of plans as long as my arm for the weekend. I hope to get some boring stuff done around the house. Maybe refinish some furniture that I meant to refinish before Christmas. I don't know. Last week I surprised myself by washing my car. I even got down and did the rims with their own special little brush. My body was so sore by the time I was done with the fourth wheel, a wax was not in the cards, but I did manage to ArmorAll everything. It's shiny now!
I didn't really consider the washing issue when we bought the convertible. I can't go through car washes anymore :( Not that that is the best way to wash your car, but convenient indeed... So the moral is, my car will never be very clean. LOL
Are you celebrating Valentine's Day this weekend? We opted to not go out on Monday since Valentine's Day nights are ALWAYS crazy anywhere you go around here. We're gonna do drinks and appetizers at the Cheesecake Factory (the "Well Mannered Martini" is my favorite drink there and the blue cheese olives are to die for!) on Saturday night - to hopefully avoid the crowds. I get to dress up a bit so that's good. I have a Stop Staring pink with white swiss dot dress I've been saving for the occasion. That is going to be my Valentine Inspired 4 or 5, I haven't decided yet...
I don't consider this outfit quite as fun as yesterday's, but I was pretty comfortable all day. I did hit the festive mark I was aiming for. I didn't really stray too far from the red section of the color wheel. I've done this dress and these tights before, but not with the red accents. Notice the flats - yay me! They really are so much better for my tootsies, but I always feel a little more dressed down in them. There is something about a heel that looks infinitely more formal.

Have a fabulous weekend and keep your eyes open for Valentine Inspired 4 :)

Your are the queen of cardigans, this one and the one in your last post are both so pretty and feminine.

I love your outfit!! Too cute! The color combo is very nice, and the shoes are really nice! I totally understand about not quite feeling as dressed up in flats... I don't have as many pairs of flats as I ought to! We're actually celebrating on Monday, but my wife took Tuesday off. (Of course, that's all she knows about what we're doing. :) ). I hope you guys have a fun V-day celebration! :)

I really love this outfit and you look fabulous in it!!! I am actually planning on taking my car to get washed today, except I get to do it the easy way instead of hand washing it myself:)
