Valentine's Date with a Cuppa

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.

This Valentine's day my husband and I are actually going to go out. For my outfit, I plan to 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. 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. It is so much fun to shop there.

I don't define myself as an Anglophile but I do find myself gravitating to all things English. I have always felt comfortable there 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?

  1. Check out the selection! Gosh this is amazing. My kids love English crisps:) I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  2. This looks like fun! I love all the different cups, saucers, and teapots on the shelf.

  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.

    ♥ Jessica

  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!
