I’ve mentioned this in year’s past, but Rob and I have never done anything big for Valenine’s Day. No reservations, no big gifts, no fancy outings. Just a simple, yet fancier dinner, at home with a nice bottle of wine (none for me this year). We exchange cards and usually I get some flowers, and that’s it!

It’s nothing over the top, but it’s become our little tradition and I absolutely love it.

This year, I do have a Galentine’s Day dinner with friends at RPM Italian though! I’m actually so excited because I’ve heard amazing things about the restaurant and have never been!

It’s a little fancier, so for me, this is my excuse to get dressed up and put something nicer on to hit the town! Even if we are going on a Thursday night! Depending on the weather, I’m planning on wearing this fun red dress that I bought for my sister’s rehearsal dinner. I am absolutely in love with it!

Typically, I’m not a red gal, but this shade and style of the dress was just too perfect to say no to. I tried both the small and extra-small, and went with the small. They both fit, but the XS was just a tad bit too short for me, and I knew it would only get shorter as my bump gets bigger.

It may not be ideal for a bigger bump, but for a smaller one, it’s perfect! The tie waist is adjustable, so you can move it up or down as necessary.

I paired it with some strappy black sandals, a leopard clutch for some fun pattern and my signature simple gold jewelry that almost never changes.
