Valentine’s Day Date and Gift Ideas

Buying a gift for the man in your life can be quite difficult. Every man is different with different tastes and preferences. Johnny isn’t too picky, but I enlisted his help. In this post, we are sharing some Valentine’s Day date and gift ideas to help you (and him) plan your perfect day for this holiday. It doesn’t have to be stressful. Remember, this holiday is about expressing your love to another person. A gift doesn’t have to be grand or expensive. A thoughtful, meaningful gift or experience could mean the world to your significant other.

Adding Color to Your Winter Outfit Ideas

I love winter but I can definitely understand if you find yourself in a style rut. A lot of people tend to gravitate toward neutrals during winter. Blacks, whites, grays and creams tend to rule during cold months. However, I’m partnering with Sole Society to share one way to avoid this style rut: adding color to your winter outfit ideas. This sweater dress is one of my favorites. It’s incredibly warm because it’s merino wool. However, it can get a little boring. The first pop of color you can add to a winter look is with a scarf. I love this exotic one because of the pink and orange stripes. When it comes to adding color to winter outfit ideas, don’t be afraid of overdoing it. If there is a neutral foundation, go for it!

Apple Picking at Carter Mountain Orchard

Virginia is definitely a state for lovers. Charlottesville is a charming college town with so much to offer, especially during Fall. Carter Mountain Orchard is well known for apple picking. It’s the perfect activity to do with your beau. Johnny and I had so much fun picking out our favorite apples to bring home! I highly recommend going early in the season, so you’ll get more apples to choose from! This will mean better pictures, too. These photos are from last year but I didn’t get a chance to work on them and post until it was well after apple picking season. They were part of our trip to the Virginia Mountains. If apple picking is something you’re wanting to do this fall, I’m spilling some tips, as well as the two things we wish we knew before we embarked on this adventure!

When Life Gives You Lemons :: Lemon Print Jumpsuit

Happy FriYay, y’all! Sooo, Why did the lemon fail her driving test? It kept peeling out! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I feel like I have to tell a bad lemon joke anytime I wear anything lemon print. However, how darling is this strapless lemon print jumpsuit?! It is the perfect piece to bring the sunshine wherever you’re going. I typically prefer items that skim the body more, but I’m loving the wide leg trend right now. Plus, it also helps when the weather gets hot. This fresh-squeezed number has built-in pads, so you can totally nix your bra! I love the sweetheart neckline, which gives this lemon print jumpsuit such a summery feel. One aspect I love is how effortless this jumpsuit is. Throw it on and head out the door and you are sure to make everyone smile wherever you go!
