desk to dinner


Valentine's Day is probably my number one most favorite holiday to dress for; it's the one day of the year that it's okay to go obnoxiously overboard on hearts and flowers and twee, cutesy accessories.  Since Valentine's Day fell on a Tuesday this year, most of the girls I know were going straight to a restaurant after work.  I actually didn't have plans with Ben since he was out of town (we're celebrating tonight with sushi and movies at home) but I did go out to dinner with my awesome sister so the whole desk-to-dinner thing still applied to me.  To change up my outfit I switched out of a cozy oversized cardigan and into a sleek blazer.  That's it.  I might have also added a pair of heels to change into if I'd be going out with Ben, but for a casual dinner (and a huge parking lot I knew I'd have to cross), my studded bow flats worked just fine with both looks.

After dinner I finally watched The Notebook for the first time (what?! I know you're wondering how I could have lived this long without seeing it. Crazy, yes.) and therefore spent the entire evening boo-hooing my eyes out.  I knew it was a love story that made girls cry but I had no idea how emotional the film would be.  If you follow me on Twitter you know that I started tearing up around the 5 minute mark and by the end of the movie I was surrounded by soggy tissues and experiencing chest pains from all the heavy sighs and sobs.  It was a really attractive moment for me.  Not what I expected for February 14 but it was therapeutic- sometimes a girl just needs a good cry by herself.  Here's to a much more uplifting February 15.

Love that outfit, you look adorable! I love the hair clip, too cute. And The Notebook is one of the best movies for that, romantic sappy therapy. Sigh.

OMGosh I thought I was the only one who had not seen this movie. Now I might have to see it. This is a great transitional outfit Tiffany! You look great in this blouse!

I've never seen The Notebook either. Although I do love Ryan Gosling, I hate movies that make me cry.

And I don't think your look is over the top at all - I think it's just fabulous.

I absolutely refuse to watch any more of his movies. Holy Molie, my poor tear ducts can't take it. I saw Message in a Bottle when it came out and walked away mad. Happy ending? No. Then a couple years later I watched a Walk to Remember. No more, I tell you, no more.
On a brighter note, I adore the hearts and flowers you are rocking today. Such a perfect and easy way to mix prints. Love.

IKNOWRIGHT! The Notebook is MOCKINGLY tear-inducing. You know how trite and shitty the movie is, but you CANNOT STOP CRYING.

I tell you what though, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are like the two most attractive mofos of all time. It's so weird to be sobbing and aroused at the same time.
