Being Brickner : Valentines Looks We Love

Valentines Looks We Love

I usually try to wait for the actual month of the holiday before actually embracing all of its goodness, but since February is such a short month & Valentines Day falls so early during it, I consider this one an exception.  Besides, this one is definitely one of my faves!  What is there not to love about the sweetness, the affection, the cute little X's & O's?!  And spending it all with these two, it just doesn't get much better.


For us, preparing for a holiday means adding some festive touches to the house, heading to Pinterest for some fun food ideas, yet most of all, dressing to the occasion!  I am such a fashion-addict & have always been that girl who planned her outfits well in advance, something about being dressed just right to the occasion always made it that much more exciting.  Now that I am a mom, nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than seeing Waverly Maye dressed in theme.  I'm totally addicted, I hope she will agree to it forever. ;)


Even though I definitely consider myself a girly-girl, I actually don't dress Waverly in as much pink as I thought I would.  I actually lean towards less traditional & more contemporary colors, especially now that she is a little bit older.  For this sweet month of love, we obviously plan to embrace some pink & red, but I am also loving accents of silver, chambray & white.  Pieces that she can wear after this month & so we can get some more use out of!!
1: Raglan Sweater, 2:  Scarf , 3: Satin Dress, 4: Striped Heart-Print Dress, 5: Basketball Boot with Buckle, 6: Heart Chambray Dress, 7: Heart Skinny Jeans 
I had to include some pieces for myself, too. :) I don't feel you are ever too old for hearts, & actually think it's a fun, versatile print to wear any time of the year.  I scored #3 in the shirt version last week & can't wait to wear it, it is currently on sale for half off! 


I also plan to use many of the red accessories & basics from our festive fashions at Christmas, the greatest thing about investing in scarves, necklaces & elastic headbands are the fact that we can wear them season after season, year after year.  I also love the fact that many of those things are pieces we can already share, which is something that totally melts my mommy heart.
A total perk of having a little lady.
(Although boy mamas, I am LOVING this red jacket on sale right now, I almost considered buying one just in case we have a boy one day.)

In the meantime, it's these two that will have my heart on Valentine's Day!  I am so excited to get Waverly Maye more involved with some crafts & baking this year AND to have a long-overdue date night with the hubby ... in which I'm convinced we will talk about Waverly the entire time.


We hope everyone had the best weekend & is getting ready for the holiday your way!  Less than one month away, LOVE is in the air!
XOXO

  3. It's always around this time of year that I am so jealous of all the girl moms. Waverly is absolutely adorable in that dress & hat! I'm hoping my 2nd is a girl, but if not, I will definitely go for #3!

  6. Love her dress -- Let Love Grow! Where did you get it?

    And I too love doing all holiday related things. Sadly, however, since we are in our cramped apartment, I just don't have any desire this year. Next year, though, I'll be back on the bandwagon!

    I am with you on trying to wait until the actual month of the holiday. But having a little girl + Valentines? Can't help it! We've pulled out her Valentine jammies already and of course I've been dressing Mia in endless amounts of pink, ha ha!
