Blue Valentine

Each Valentine’s Day, B and I have good intentions. We both say that we are going to get each other gifts, that we will go out to a fancy dinner and that we will get dressed up. This is how it goes down every year. Usually only one of us remembers the gift (this is B), we both forget to make reservations, we both end up in the picked over card aisle at the grocery store minutes before dinner and you know what? Sometimes getting fancy is overrated when you’ve worked all day. 
So this year we just decided  to be real about it and to go casual; a jean friendly kind of Valentine’s if you will. (Boyfriend jeans to be exact.) So we are just going to cook dinner at the house, drink wine and I’m probably going to talk him into letting me watch as many cheesy love movies as possible. All without having to get dolled up. Now doesn’t that just sound like the best Valentine’s ever?

    Aw love this! But I am biased – I'm a blue fanatic :)

  • Elena Michelle

    Honestly, that sounds wonderful!! Valentines day isn't about what you do, its about who you're with. Love this outfit — hope you enjoy your night in!

    I am so in love with this top and I've been looking for it at Anthropologie's everywhere! They ran out of my size :( It looks so great on you though! Love the soft blues. Makes me hopeful that spring will come again someday

  • Supal

    Loving all the blues I'm seeing on everyone's blogs and outfits today. And your valentine's day seems just about perfect. Luckily it's a Friday so you can watch ALL the cheesy movies you want… starting with The Notebook! :)

  • Harmony Cornwell

    I want that top, so pretty!

  • Priyanka Sacheti

    Wow, love your ensemble and the gorgeous shades of blue! In fact,

  • Amanda

    Can you please please please do a hair post! I just chopped mine and have major hair envy of how cute yours always looks!

  • Megan

    hey Kendi! just wanted to thank you for bring a smile to my face everyday.

  • Christa

    Super cute blue Valentine's get-up! I am doing almost that exact thing for Vday and I'm really exciting actually!


  • Natali

    Such a gorgeous top and necklace! You look beautiful :)

  • Allie / Joy and Ivy

    Love the top and necklace!! My husband and I are also guilty of having good intentions for VDay but not following through. We've given up on fighting the crowds at restaurants and enjoy an excuse to cook a nice meal at home :).

  • Adri Cisneros

    That sounds like a great Valentine's! Honestly, going out for Valentine's can be crazy anyways. And that blazer needs to get in my closet!

    I agree–please share!

  • Katelyn

    Sounds like it will be wonderful! I have plans with my boo to go out to dinner and do the whole getting dressed up thing and then wine and movies afterwards. Trying to find a happy medium :) Have a great v-day girl!

  • Elena Drake-Knight

    Sounds amazing. This year my husband and I decided to have a coffee shop date with some good books and hot cocoa.

  • Crystal Palmisano-Dillard

    Those totally looked that mom jeans on me. I wish I could pull then off like you! And yup. You're hair has been pinned for inspiration.

  • Paige Cassandra Flamm

    I am loving those boyfriend jeans!


  • Julie

    It's the "Midnight Bouquet Bib" from I have it too – it's amazingly versatile!

    The backdrop for your outfit today is so perfect:) (blue sign & brick = I love) My favorite outfits of yours are your more casual (like today) – I'm a stay-at-home mom who still likes to dress nice. And, your mint and wine yesterday was one of my favorite combinations you've put together, ever! We are flying out for a long weekend this weekend, and I'm still hoping you put together a "travel essentials" post someday. It's becoming more and more necessary to pack smart/wardrobe efficient when flying so you don't have to pay extra… :) Have a good day!

    sounds like a perfect valentine's day!

  • Alison Colby

    You just make me miss Texas (and Spring) that much harder. Gorgeous color on you!!

  • Code Overdressed

    Oh it sounds like a perfect date night! Is nice to go out and doll up but in the end what matters is to be with your beloved one! So have fun you two. Love the blazer, and hooray to boyfriend jeans, they rock!

    Cee. ♥

    Another thing about fancy v-day outings is the crowds! I don't want to wait an hour for a fancy dinner! Although, I'm torn because I love any excuse to get dolled up…

  • Sofia_H

    Casual valentine's is the best kind. We're going to binge watch House of Cards and eat soup. Probably in non-sexy pjs.

  • Erica

    That sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day!

    xx – Erica on my blog!!)

  • Stacy Armistead

    We're keeping it casual at home this year too and I'm pretty pumped about it. Hope y'all have a great night and you get to watch your girly movies :)

  • Audrey @ Putting Me Together

    That's definitely my kinda Valentine's Day!

  • bethany

    That's what we're doing! Making a nice dinner, drinking some wine and making a yummy dessert! Staying home and cuddling on the couch is sometimes the most romantic date night :)

  • Kendi Lea

    I know what you mean but I find that I HAVE to wear heels with boyfriend jeans to make them less 'mom jeans.'

  • Rebecca Lately

    It does :)

  • Peak 25

    This is the first time I've been on your blog and I have to say I love it! Thanks for the post, your necklace looks wonderful!

  • Mica

    Such a lovely print on that top! :)

    Hope you have a fun Valentine's evening at home :)

    The flowers in your tote are such a fun touch! I love that you're not all dolled up in pink for Valentine's Day but still look dreamy and romantic. Beautiful outfit Kendi!
