I’m a sucker for feminine, floral dresses – they have an air of romance and sweetness to them, and this one was love at first sight. Last week I was window shopping (well, that’s what I told myself) and I spotted this beauty out of the corner of my eye. I marched myself into Express, tried it on, and left completely smitten and ready for Valentine’s Day.

The dress is suppose to be a “midi” dress but on me it’s full length which works out perfectly. I love that it has a cinched or “smocked” waist because it helps create a more flattering figure, especially since the rest of the dress is flowy. My favorite part is the cute lace-up v-neck that adds just a touch of sexiness to an overall sweet dress. It’s the perfect feminine dress for Valentine’s Day but I can also see myself wearing it to dinner dates or family gatherings.

 This year I think we’re planning on staying home for Valentine’s Day. I keep telling my husband that’s what I want to do but he keeps suggesting things lol. We’ve been so busy lately that a night in would do us good. Plus Valentine’s Day is not my most favorite holiday. I love celebrating but I feel like several days a year should be Valentine’s Day 😉 Plus I can’t even believe it’s February already. Where did January go?
