Show me some love: Valentine's Day Favorites

 

Show Me some Love

 

I’ll admit I am a total sucker for Valentine’s Day. I fall for the whole thing: the flowers, candy and overly romantic gestures. There is something about showing love to those around you that just makes me a happy gal come Feb. 14. This February, I have fallen in love with all of the fun heart inspired looks that are in stores right now. While dressing head-to-toe in hearts may be going overboard, a bit of the trend is the perfect way to show a little Valentine’s Day spirit. I’m envisioning this fabulous glittery heart Wildfox tee paired with black leather pants, a classic tweed jacket, and some sky high heels (the perfect date night look). And don’t get me started on these killer Alice & Olivia cutout heart booties. They are calling for a little black dress and a night on the town. Any of these pieces are a great option for whatever your Valentine’s Day entails, even if it’s watching "The Notebook" with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s, you might as well be wearing something cute like this love ring.

And, maybe you're not the lingerie type. So you're stumped. Here's a round up of five of our favorite Valentine's gifts. A beautiful gold ring from Anthropologie, Barr-Co lotion (the best!) also sold at Anthropologie as well as locally at Stripe, Blithe and Bonny soaps sold in Santa Cruz at Cameron Marks, Tomboy, and Three Little Birds, our favorite bubble bath by Tokyo Milk, sold online and at Saffron and Genevieve in Santa Cruz, and this amazing pink and cream colored coin purse found on Etsy. So when he asks what you want, here's a group of items that will make you feel feminine, romantic and pretty all around.
