Lace & Bow

Hi guys! Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed your Valentine’s day. We had a huge snow storm but hubby and I still went out for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. On Saturday, we attended our church’s vintage 1960s Valentine’s dinner. It was great to step out of the house and in the company of friends. You can check out a “selfie” post on my Instagram of my outfit, which is similar to this post.

For this post, I wore my Asos lace dress, which has been sitting in my closet for almost two years. It might not be the average red or pink dress for a Valentine’s Day date, but I love the lace details and the length gives it a fun, sexy and classy look. In tune with a monochrome theme, I wore myAminah Abdul bow pumps, which adds a feminine touch with the bow and a sexy feel with the cut-out.

 Outfit: Asos dress (old, similar here, love this here) // Aminah Abdul Jillil bow pumps (here, love this bow pumps here & here) // Lipstick (here) //Forever21 trench (old, similar here) // Michael Kors watch (here, love this here) // Essie nail polish (here)

Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
