My Funny Valentine

Happy Almost Valentines Day, Friends!!

After a wonderful girls weekend in NYC with Mom, I am so excited to get back home to Jonny and Stanley just in time for Valentines day ❤️.  My mom and I had a busy few days in the city attending events and a few fashion shows and I can't wait to share more from our trip with you!! 

Jonny and I chatted briefly about our Valentines plans and agreed that after a busy few weeks of travel for both of us that the best way to celebrate our love would be a night in at home.  He offered to make dinner, which I am very much looking forward to because after eight years together I have realized that Ramen Noodles is his house specialty, but even that would be ok with me!

If Jonny's cooking doesn't work out, we have a few tried and true restaurants we always go to.  When we are planning a special date night we usually opt for Linger because the ambiance is fun and food is always new and delicious (it is also right up the street which is a little bonus), or Mercantile (we had our Valentine's date there last year).  Also, Cooper Lounge, is always a great spot to grab a drink before or after dinner and has a beautiful view and always fun people watching looking over Union Station.  We have really been wanting to try The Populist!  We have heard great things and it looks so pretty! What is your favorite date night spot?

Almost my whole look is Banana Republic.  I was instantly drawn to this blush midi skirt and I love how soft this matching sweater is which comes in 7 other colors.  My fur vest is old, but I found a similar one here and here.  My shoes are probably the most comfortable heels I have ever had.  Stanley may have loved them even more than me and mistakenly used them as a chew toy, so I am so glad I found them in stock here because they are pretty much out everywhere else. I found a few other burgundy options that I also love here and here (and these also come in blush!) 

 

 

Blushing Valentines Date Out

You Guys!!!

The Broncos are Super Bowl Champions - woot woot!  There is such a great feeling in our big/little city right now!  Driving home last night every horn was honking and happiness was exuding from every home and car.  I can only imagine how much fun my dad and Jonny had at the game, but I am ready for them to hurry home now.  Jonny and I have so much to do before our big trip next week!

Jonny and I don't have big plans this Valentines Day, we are heading to SE Asia next week so that is really what we are focussing on (and incredibly excited about it!), but last week we were sure to spend a night out at one of our favorite restaurants, Mercantile Dining and Provision, relaxing and enjoying each others company, while also doing a little trip planning.  

As I shared with you here, Jonny and I love date nights at home.  However, when we do go out, we have a few go-to spots.  I often get emails about my favorite restaurants in Denver and I always have the same answers - thats because we are such creatures of habit.  When we have time to go out to eat we want to be sure it is going to be a place we love.  Our favorite spots are Mercantile (below), Linger (our anniversary spot), Postino (great happy hour), Root Down (more about it here), Highland Tap and Burger (yummiest burgers).

Denver is a pretty casual city, but I still like to make sure I look and feel extra special on date nights.   This Tory Burch look is the perfect outfit for a casual Valentines date night and is great transitioning into spring.  The blush tones are so feminine and I love the sweater and top separately... the blouse reminds me of a little ballerina, perfectly dainty.  Also, these shoes could not be more comfy - the structured/chunky heel 🙌🏼- ahhhhhmazing! 

This Thursday, February 11th, join me for a fun night of champagne and shopping at Tory Burch in Cherry Creek,  I will be there from 6-8pm (pointing out my favorite things to Jonny!) bring your guy or girlfriends!  Look forward to seeing you there!

Shop the whole look below or at the store with me Thursday!
