Valentine's Date Night Look + WW Link up

TGIF.  I've had two sick kiddos home with me this week, so let's just say it's been a long one.  On the plus side, my boys love cuddling with me when they're feeling under the weather, so I've been taking advantage of all the snuggle time while I can get it.  However, there has also been a lot of sick tears, sleepless nights, and not much time to get work done, so we'll keep this post nice and short.

If you're planning on heading out for Valentine's Day, whether on a date or to a Galentine's party, then you need this ruched long sleeved dress!  The fitted cut gives it a sexy feel, while the ruching hits in all the right places, making it extremely flattering.  You can eat all the chocolate that you please, and the ruching will hide the food baby!  It can easily be dressed up or down, really making it the perfect dress for any occasion, and it's available in four colors.  Plus, it also comes in a sleeveless option, which will be ideal for the summer.  I actually just ordered it in black!

I decided to pair this dress with my black leather jacket for extra warmth, and love how it added a little edge.  I'm not a huge fan of wearing tights with heels, but it was much too cold for bare legs, so I had no choice but to wear them.  Although I don't love how the tights looked with my studded heels, I don't hate how it looked either, but I'm thinking when I do wear this on Valentine's day, OTK boots may be a better option.
