Monochrome valentine


Happy Valentine's Day! This is a holiday I typically don't go all-out for. It definitely had more appeal when I was younger (does anyone else miss exchanging Valentines with classmates?!), but it's fun every once in a while to use it as an excuse to go out on a special date with a special someone (or know, friends and/or family!). This year, Chris and I decided to go to The Melting Pot for some cheese and chocolate fondue. YUM! We went out last night mostly because they didn't have any reservations for tonight, but it ended up working out well; today was a relatively lazy day, though we did decide to soak up one of the final warm days before the cold arrives again next week by going for a hike. (And cleaning the house, because that needs to be done regularly!)

I showed a sneak peek of this outfit on Instagram a few days ago and ended up going with it! I'm all about the monochrome outfits lately but I have a hard time putting them together and liking them on myself. I previously wore an all black outfit, which I think is easier to pull off than other colors. What I really liked about this look was how the colors get darker from head to toe. I felt like a walking valentine all day yesterday and did not mind one bit. :)
