Happy Sunday, everyone!!
Hope you’re all having a relaxing day. I’ve had a wonderful weekend so far and am feeling great.
Right now, I’m making plans for our Valentine’s Day celebration. I’m a big fan of V-Day. It’s a day that celebrates love, and since we need more love in this world, Valentine’s Day is wonderful in my book.
For me, Valentine’s Day is about love and romance – NOT flowers, candy, or jewelry. I especially hate that the commercialization of Valentine’s Day has made it one in which men are expected to perform and cater to their sweethearts through the purchasing of material goods. Our Valentine’s Day celebration will not be about gifts – it will be about shared experiences and mutual gratification.
Of course, it will also be about fashion (as almost everything is!! :-)). I’ve got a few Valentine’s Day looks in mind, which I will share with you later.
Today, I’m featuring a few of my recent Valentine’s Day-inspired work outfits featuring fun prints.

Blouse: The Limited (Available here)
Blazer: New York & Company Petites
The first includes a kiss print blouse I recently picked up from The Limited. I already had a similar blouse in navy and red (featured here), but I just couldn’t resist. The black and pink color combination is one of my top five favorite color combinations, and since I wear so much black, I knew that this one would get a lot of wear.

Heels: Target (Available here)
Amazingly, the pink blazer I already had in my closet was a perfect match for the blouse. Black skinnies and stilettos completed the look.
A heart shaped locket added a simple but sweet finishing touch.

For last Friday’s casual work look, I wore this heart print blouse. Friday was the annual Go Red for Women – a day to wear red in support of women’s heart health.

As heart disease is the leading cause of death of women in the United States, greater awareness to the signs and symptoms of heart disease in women is greatly needed. I decided my red heart blouse was a perfect choice for this day.
While I enjoy this blouse, I am not a huge fan of this outfit. I was trying to come up with a new way to wear the top, but I wasn’t very happy with the result. I much prefer the combos I wore here and here.

Valentine’s Day is also a great reminder of the importance of loving one’s self – check out this post for one of my strategies towards greater self love.
