Valentine's Date with a Cuppa!

A Vintage Nerd
Valentine dates have been scarce since my husband and I starting having our children but it doesn't mean we didn't do little things for each other to remind the other that we loved them. Honestly, I feel like Valentine's day can be everyday really and showing our loved ones we care in little ways I think is so thoughtful and loving (ie notes in lunch bag, cooking favorite meal, etc)

This Valentine's day my husband and I are actually going to go out! Another reason we haven't gone out much on this day (like Mother's Day) is because of the crowds. I know I am a New Yorker but I have never been a fan of crowds. Who is?

Anyhoo-along with our youngest baby (while baby no 1 and 2 attend school) we will be heading out into the city (Manhattan) and experiencing something we have never done before and I am soooo excited!!!

Before I share with you our plans I wanted to give you a little glimpse into what I will be wearing. I am most defiantly a red, white, and blue sort of girl. My favorite color is blue and red is my favorite vintage color. 

Here is a peak at my dress:
avintagenerd
Vintage Valentine
Red Hearts
I will pair my dress up with a navy cardigan and wear for the first time one of my vintage celluloid brooches. Tomorrow I will share with you a few of my "new" brooches and a huge score I made with one of them!

I am also going to wear these simple heart post earrings (I prefer post rather than clip on or screw on-hurts much less!)
Tea and Sympathy
Tea and Sympathy
Hubby and I plan to enjoy our afternoon at Tea and Sympathy. We may shoot over to A Salt and Battery for lunch (fish and chips!) and then have a proper afternoon tea experience at Tea and Sympathy. Either way I will be in UK bliss! Tea and Sympathy even has a shop for English foods and goods!!!! I am most defiantly going to get some of my favorite sweets-chewits!

I don't define myself as an Anglophile but I do find myself gravitating to all things English. I have always felt comfortable there (been there a few times) and I enjoy the culture. I sort of feel like the English are my cousins, being American and all.

Do any of you have any special plans for Valentine's Day?

  3. Oooh, that dress looks super lovely! I'm such a die hard fan of vintage plaid.

    I hope you two have a marvelous evening out - you totally deserve it.

  4. I LOVE A Salt and Battery! My sis lives in NY and evertime my husband and I visit we tried to hit it up. He's a Brit and says it's the best he's had in the States!
