A Timeless Valentine’s Day Outfit

Valentine’s Day is coming up and that means another excuse for date night! I love any excuse to dress up and what better reason to put on my prettiest feminine details than this sweet holiday? This year’s look is inspired by my new Anne Woodman Wishbone Pearl Earrings from the distinctive designer jewelry boutique Favery.  They are certainly timeless and feminine. A little white dress, made out of lace, with an open back is a perfect pairing to celebrate the occasion.

This gorgeous dress won my heart when I first saw it at Lulus, but I love it even more now. Want to know why? I wore it to a small family reception dinner on my wedding day in Maui. I love that wearing it reminds me of this special memory!

This bag is less than $20 and comes in light pink too. The gold chain matched the delicate wire on my earrings perfectly.

Accessories aren’t complete without darling earrings to complement your look. The highlight of this outfit is by far these  Anne Woodman earrings. You can’t beat the elegance and quality of handmade! I kept the rest of the outfit simple just so I could show them off. I am obsessed with the twisty details. Check them out on Favery’s website and you’ll see what I mean!

I received them from a local Seattle boutique Favery that deals exclusively in handpicked quality jewelry and I cannot get enough of them! They are so delicate and whimsical and definitely the perfect feminine touch to my Valentine’s Day outfit. Because pearls are so classic and elegant, it created a flawless combination for a timeless look.
