A Perfect Valentine’s “Costume”

I’m kicking off the Week of Red and Pink with this, the outfit I wore last year on Valentine’s Day. We celebrated by having dinner at our neighborhood favorite, Vinegar Hill House. As we waited for a table and drank fancy pants cocktails at the bar, a sweet older gentleman felt compelled to tell Creighton, “You’re a lucky man. Your date has the best costume in the whole place.”

That’s right… costume.

    Valentine’s Day is the most fun holiday to dress up for. Also, when someone calls my outfit a costume, that’s how I know I’ve done something right.

    Oh no - costume?!?! Hahaha. Well you look totally adorable regardless of what it might be called.
