The Best Valentine’s Gift? One for Yourself, Of Course!

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s is here! Who needs a Valentine, anyway? We have ourselves! I haven’t had a memorable Valentine’s Day since second grade. I received an anonymous card from someone who told me I was a hot potato…I was so embarrassed but secretly thrilled.

This time of year is when Kiskadee starts to fill with spring color — coral, aqua, sky blue, pink — and the thoughts of warmer days saturate my mind. Time to take stock of your closet so you are ready when the temps are solidly in the 60s and 70s. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to treat yourself with the anticipation of warmth.


Some like it hot and coral is right on trend! Coral looks good on everyone…it immediately brightens all skin tones and really it pairs well with anything! This sweater by LillaP is made of cool cotton with a bit of modal. The looser fit tops both slim pants and those with wider legs.


A lighter weight cashmere is terrific for early spring and cool summer nights. This luxurious sweater by Repeat boasts a beautiful, graduated aqua hue. It would pair fabulously with white, silk pants or linen shorts and strap-y sandals.


I love this look and you don’t even need two different tops to pull it off. Repeat has done it again. It has taken one of its beautifully crafted cotton sweaters and added the tailored details of a white button down shirt. The design element of a faux button down adds unparalleled sophistication to an otherwise casual top.

If Valentine’s Day has you with your besties, treat yourself to a fabulous day!
