Friday night I celebrated Valentines' Day with a special someone at Gezellig. This was the beef tartar appetizer (ah-mazing).
Getting dressed for a date in the winter is so difficult! The shoes can really make or break an outfit and I'm constantly in the same over-the-knee flat boots. Anyone else agree?
It was freezing on Friday, but the roads were dry so I took advantage and wore my faux-suede cap-toe flats (but would have preferred heels had I not been faced with potentially climbing over curb-snow banks).
On Saturday I spent the day shopping for my next vlog and picked up several items for Spring (which you will see soon!).
Outfit deets: Joe Fresh cardigan (old), Old Navy slip (worn as a top, old), Zara faux leather pants, Pier 1 ring, Ardène flats, vintage necklace & Cleo belt.
Later that evening, my family surprised me with a month-early birthday dinner celebration! We had my favourite meal (turkey dinner) and my mom made the cake you see above. I was so shocked as I thought it was just going to be a family dinner of six and ended up being nine people instead!
My birthday is not till March, but it was so nice to celebrate early!
Sunday brunch with the bff (look guys, it's a different meal! Ha!).
Afterwards, my bestie and I did some shopping and I used up a gift card I got for Christmas. I picked up a maxi dress (which I will sew into a skirt, as the dress isn't long enough for me) and a necklace and didn't spend a penny of my own money.
Sarah joked that these sunglasses from Boathouse looked like 'Blue Blockers'; haha, remember those!? (Update: and apparently BB's are way more stylish these days)
Sunday shopping outfit.
Outfit deets: Ardène pashmina, Zara sweater (the sweater in my header!), Sirens trapeze top & leggings and Rampage boots.
Sunday evening dinner: tomato, avocado, cucumber & Buffalo mozza cheese salad.
