I was so happy to spend some quality time with my family this Valentine's day.

After tea time, I went out on a romantic dinner date with my boyfriend. My boyfriend, being the wonderful romantic boyfriend he is, surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses. We enjoyed a delicious gourmet dinner together along with wine and an unlimited dessert bar (that's right, unlimited desserts!). Such a wonderful day :)

  8. Marie, please make a post with the step by step of how to do that hairstyle (ugh, my english sucks here, but i think it is  understandable)!!!!

    You look fabulous on this dress! The color is perfect for you!

    We don't have valentine's day here in Brazil, but we have a similar date, on June 12, called "boyfriends's day"  or "lovers day", something like that, ;)

    ps: I dye my hair... But I am not ginger now, i am more red-haired... Really red, red red! And I love it.

  19.  Hello Reema! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and always commenting such sweet words. You are not at all annoying, I'm more than happy to help!

    I really love your new orange dress! The color probably looks fantastic on you. Here are a couple of ideas on how to wear it:
              - Try wearing a monochromatic look by adding pieces in different shades of orange and red, like I did here: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/08/red-orange.html   , and here: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/11/i-missed-thanksgiving.html
              - Another easy idea is to add a patterned scarf on top of your outfit. Try to pick a scarf that has some sort of orange in it, that will always look nice. Finish it off with some neutral accessories and maybe one pop of color and you are ready to go. Something like this: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/07/scarves-in-panama.html
              - One of my go-to ideas for wearing dresses is to tie a crisp white collar shirt on top. After that, you can add almost anything else such as a statement necklace, a bright colored shoe, or a funky bag. Like this: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/05/always-hint-of-blue.html    , and here: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/02/challenging-heels.html
               - You can also add a patterned collar shirt on top instead of a plain white one: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2010/05/natural-effortless.html
               - Or another fail-proof outfit is to add a jean jacket and brown accessories. You can't go wrong with that outfit: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2009/10/happy-halloween.html
               - Or yet another idea is to layer the collar shirt under your dress (instead of over it). That always looks professional and pulled together: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2012/02/secret-to-fun-workplace.html
               - One last idea is to create a bold color combo. Try pairing your orange dress with a bright blue or even purple jacket! Like this: http://thejoyoffashion.blogspot.com/2011/10/funny-what-lace-can-do.html

    I hope you find these ideas useful Reema! If you have any more questions, always feel free to contact me. Have a wonderful day!
