Hi, everyone! My name is Julie and I am the woman behind the lifestyle blog Vylette. By day, I work as a book keeper, and by night, I am mad crafter, designer, and baking enthusiast. I am so very excited to be your guest Valentine’s Day themed poster today. Despite being a boring old married lady, I decided to go a little nontraditional when celebrating Valentine’s Day this year. Instead of flowers, candy and a fancy dinner out (which admittedly has never been our thing), the hubs and I are going to celebrating separately this year. I will be hitting the town with some of my friends to celebrate Galentine’s Day by dressing up, going out, and having as much fun as one can reasonably have on a Tuesday – with three little ones in tow and having to still make it into the office by 8 the next morning. Basically dinner out with coloring books, cupcakes, candy, and plenty of colorful anecdotes. Whist I am out and about, the husband will be enjoying a rare quiet night in, sprinkled with one or two appropriately themed surprises I’ll have set up before taking off 😉
When Penny agreed to swap a guest post with me and suggested we each style a similar accessory, I must admit I was a little nervous. My own personal style isn’t nearly as glamorous or visually interesting, but I decided to give it a try. As soon as I saw the Purple Ombre Heart Headband
, I knew that I had found the perfect accessory for girls night. Fun and just the teeniest bit cheesy, plus anything with glitter is usually right up my ally. To make the experience a little more challenging, I pushed myself to compose the rest of the outfit from things already hanging in my closet.
As I am writing this, I realized that each of the pieces I am wearing actual have some romantic story behind them. The off the shoulder sweater I wore do the rehearsal dinner the day before I got married, the skirt I wore to the wedding shower of my brother and sister-in-law, and the shoes were something I purchased when my husband took me out for a little retail therapy after I lost my brother (the distraction didn’t really work, but it was a wonderfully sweet gesture none the less). So without even trying, I have clothed myself in romantically themed items for this romantically themed day. Funny how those kinds of things work out, huh?
So cute – thanks for sharing, Julie! Head to Vylette to see how I styled my headband!
