Five on Friday: Valentine's Date Night

I'm linking up again today with more about Valentine's Day for a Five on Friday with The Good Life blog!

For the past several years, our Valentine dates have consisted of dinner at our favorite local Mexican restaurant, Joe T. Garcia's. It works out fairly nice now that we have children since it's casual, and they can join right along in our tradition. (We are Aggies, and Aggies love tradition.) My parents never celebrated a holiday like that without us (now, their anniversary? yes, we stayed home!), so it seems right that we would include our kids.

But if I were going out on a fancy date night for Valentine's Day, here's what I'd be deciding on:

C. Luce Poppy fit and flare dress.

This style is flattering on so many body types. Reviews say it runs small. Bonus, it's machine washable!

Geojacquard Dress

The two reviewers of this dress give it 5 stars. I keep thinking I'm totally over the high-low look, but this one is done really well. I like that it either looks lined, or the back of the fabric is black so you can't see a weird back fabric print in the "low" part of the high-low cut.

Am I making any sense? It's one of my pet peeves about high-low cut skirts.

Printed Fit and Flare dress

I noticed this one in store last week. A great heavy weight material that will be perfect with boots for a while until the weather warms up. V-Day and everyday! It comes in just a skirt too.

Pleated swing dress

This would be a departure for me, but I think it would look so cute with patterned black tights and black heels.

River Island Sleeveless Ruffle Shift

This one is on super sale, and I feel like someone should snap it up. That is a gorgeous pink and apart from V-day, this one could get a lot of miles at weddings, special dress up nights for vacation, even Easter. Very cute!

So tell me, on a scale of jeans and a t-shirt to LBD, where do your Valentine plans fall?

  1. Date night. What's that? Just kidding! Great pics!!

  2. Can't even pic a favorite dress from those. They're all so lovely!!!
    Happy weekend, beauty! xx

  3. I love that you take your kids out with you for Valentines Day!!! Since J, we haven't done anything special for Valentines. I think we celebrated before having him. that bad that I don't remember.

    1. I think that's totally mom brain! I don't remember too much from before kids. I have to go back and look at my blog sometimes to see what we did when!

  4. We got engaged on Feb. 12, so we always celebrate at Outback that day. I'm guessing I'll pick it up and bring it home this year rather than venturing out with the gals...unless we're feeling brave!

    1. Aww! We were engaged Feb. 11th! :) Doesn't Outback have that carside-to-go service where they'll bring it out to your car? Whoever came up with that must be a mom.

  5. I am so with you on not loving that weird fabric back that is so common on high-low dresses, and I totally agree that this one is a nice departure from that - super cute picks!
