a cozy valentine's day

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Mine was spent in an exceptionally cozy fashion. It's been so cold lately that I've been keeping my outdoor adventures to a minimum (which basically means I'm only leaving my apartment if absolutely necessary). As such, we had a pretty low-key V-Day celebration that consisted of doing laundry, catching up on our Netflix queue, and enjoying a nice dinner in the warmth of our apartment (#adulthood, am I right?). With pops of pink that are a bit uncharacteristic for me, this look is undoubtedly inspired by the holiday. However, it's decidedly casual and easygoing. While I love dressing up as much as the next gal, when it's 15 degrees out, I am all about comfort and practicality. What's great about this look is that it'll keep me nice and toasty without sacrificing style.

One way to ensure that an ensemble doesn't get too unpolished is to add a little sparkle -- and these pieces by DBH Boutique do just that! I paired the silver Pilgrimer necklace with these super chic silver skinny steel hoops, and although they are both knockout pieces in their own right, I am absolutely loving the combo of the earrings and necklace together. I can't wait to style these versatile pieces with some spring looks as the possibilities will be truly endless!
