Happy belated Valentine's Day!! Hope everyone was able to spend the day or evening with someone you heart! V-Day was an eventful day for me this year. It started at work, I was welcomed with pretty pink cupcakes and heavily frosted heart shaped cookies. Of course I had them for breakfast! ;-) I didn't feel too bad about cheating so early in the day, I was in for a physical beating later...For the day of Love, Wheelhouse threw an event to benefit the San Francisco Aids Foundation. I registered for two classes back to back (I know I'm insane) for my 'lunch' break. First was a spin class and immediately after was a body sculpting class. If you are in the SF area, I HIGHLY recommend this studio!! After work, I headed about 15 minutes away from my office to a lounge for dinner and drinks. My drink for he night was a Romeo and Juliet...perfect for the occasion!

I've had this red satin skirt for years now and have never worn! I always thought it was too much when I did try to wear out...V-Day was my opportunity and I'm glad I did! I've inspired myself to wear more often after seeing the entire look put together ;-) Lace is my go to dressy essential. This one I got from Banana but there are tons of options out there, similar listed above. My favorite item outside of this skirt is the ankle strap heel. My first post with these heels I dressed down and wore the original ankle straps. This time I mixed it up by wearing straps from Tibi's Carine heel. With the clear strap, it will make ANYTHING extra flattering. If you happen to own more than one shoe with removable straps, don't be afraid to mix and match!

Till next time lovelies!
