What's more perfect for a Valentine's date night than a little black dress?!

This week was all about girl time and girl talk! Today's post is about dressing up for a fun night on the town… be it a hot date or a crazy night of dancing! It's the perfect combo: red lips, little black dress, and a heck of a lot of sparkle!
I love how the back and front are so different but each one is a party on it's own!! I don't know if I like the front or back better ;) On date nights like Valentine's Day I always go for a black dress with pops of red. It makes me feel a lot sexier while still being understated. It's fun to dress up and look pretty but you want the full attention to be on your face and your smile… hello, red lipstick! This Sephora rouge cream lipstick lasts for.ev.er! No joke, through morning, through lunch, and then through that afternoon cup of coffee!
What fun plans do you all have for Saturday night?!
PS. On a less happy note - I wanted to thank everyone that left a comment on my instagram last night. If you didn't know I lost my sweet puppy, Kelty. He wasn't exactly a puppy, he was a 10 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but he was so full of life and brought such joy to my family every day. He was best buddies with my dad - they did almost everything together. I've shared all of your kind words with my family and it truly helped us realize that the 10 years we had with him were so special. My sister put it best: "the three of us grew up together and he still loved us during our awkward stages." Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!!
yes, this is me as a freshman in high school with Kelty as a puppy!
