Seeing that Valentine’s Day is one week away, I thought I would find some fun shoes to inspire your date night next week! Yep, I am one of those gals who enjoy’s valentine’s day. I realize there are some out there who protest the day, think its a money making scheme, too commercialized (yes, I’ll admit this one a bit), but to be honest, griping about it doesn’t do anything positive. I say embrace the opportunity to celebrate love and to remind ourselves how much we have to be thankful for – and not just love with our main squeeze, but with family and friends too. Ok off my soapbox.
This will my 8th Valentine’s Day with the hubs. On our very first one he cooked me a delicious 4 course meal at his apartment (with lots of flowers waiting – I seriously adore flowers, year round – they are always in our home!)…from then on we decided that Valentine’s day is the perfect occasion to stay in and have fun cooking together. This year we will be breaking our tradition as we will be in Washington, DC most of next week for a mini-getaway during his time off work. If anyone has any suggestion as to where we should eat in DC for a romantic night, please let me know!
But whether you stay in or go out this Valentine’s Day , it is still so much fun picking out an outfit and some cute little shoes to match :)
I picked the above shoes as inspiration. The Vivienne Westwood shoes are quirky and unique. The J.Crew ballet flats are probably what you would have found on me if the hubs and I were eating in (combined with a fun top and skinny jeans, of course), And I had to throw in a fun sparkly shoe into the mix for those of y’all going out big – and Kate Spade knows how to do sparkle!
Now with all the fun and gorgeous shoes out there, your options are endless – however you can never go wrong in a classic pair of black pumps – they always class up an outfit and fit any occasion.
Here is to some cute footwear on Valentine’s day – hey we all can use an excuse to go shoe shopping, right? Happy Shoesday!
