guest post: valentine’s with vylette

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 aΒ TuesdayΒ 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 πŸ˜‰

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!
