Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love everything about it – the celebration of true love, the gift-giving, the romantic dates, the love letters, and the opportunity to dress up in a beautifully feminine way! We have some great dates planned this month, and I want to look my best for Mike!

Today I’m sharing my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired looks. I love the softness of light pinks, blushes, and ivories during this time of year. Each piece I chose for my Feminine Favorites is classically beautiful, modest, and romantic – ideal for a date with the one you love!
