First: I wish I were the ultra-chic Charlotte Groeneveld (shown above), a strong reminder as to why my predominantly jeans-oriented wardrobe is feeling immature these days. Post-pregnancy, I’m branching out to wear things like these culottes (<<70% off!) she’s wearing above, which I wish I could wear for February 14th.
Second: holidays are SO much fun with mini around. They require some planning, so I’m sharing my top picks here, a month out. We’ll start with Valentine’s Day outfits/goodies for US, and then add some amazing scores for your minis. (I know many of you are chomping at the bit for the day where I include picks for boys, too — but I’m not there yet…)
Valentine’s Day Gifts and Outfits.
Links and alternates (often less expensive) below the collage — or you can click each image to access the product page!
+Chantecaille lip veil. I’ve read good things about this lipstick formula and am enamored with the line’s big-hearted (very chic!) foundress.
+Alexandre Birman sandals (heavily discounted!). Oof, these are screaming for a Valentine’s Day get-up. Just as chic with mom jeans and a white button down as they’d be paired with a red hot dress. Other fab shoes for Valentine’s Day: these glittery Sophia Websters (swoon), these feathered friends from TB, and these Pradas.
+I’m all about these headbands right now. I own this exact style and LOVE it. The color, the style.
+I consider myself a gummy afficionado. These look divine. I might wrap up little parcels for my gal pals.
+Latte mug. I love you A LATTE. HA. I don’t usually give gifts to anyone (outside of baked goods) on Valentine’s Day, but if you do — this might be sweet for a mother/mother-in-law. Or just for yourself.
+Malone Souliers shoes — ON SALE.
+Personalized cards. Love the style of the monogram.
+Pamela Munson straw tote. At the tippy top of my wish list right now.
+Common Projects sneakers. Someone recently wrote and asked for “sophisticated, non-distressed grown-up sneakers.” These are your ticket!
P.S. If you are a man looking for a Valentine’s Day gift idea for your woman and are still confused/lost after reading through the above, personally, I would love to receive this bag, this cult-following cleanser, and pretty much anything on this gift list. For a bigger ticket Valentine’s Day: anything here, this top-handle bag in the pink, or one of these pls and thank you.
Valentine’s Day Gifts and Outfits for Minis.
+Pink picnic basket. Such a cute way to hand out/collect Valentine’s — and then repurpose for summer picnics.
+Windowpane heart dress. Darling.
+Oversized bow. It’s a problem that I’ve found a good bow source that delivers via Amazon Prime…
+I bought this exact dress for mini — love those bows!
+You can’t really tell from this pic, but these are special Valentine’s Day edition Go Go Squeez pouches. So if you’re feeling virtuous, consider doling these out in lieu of treats/candies and make every other mama’s heart swell.
+Ordering this for mini for the occasion.
+This dress is beyond.
+A sweet apron for Valentine’s Day baking.
