February is always one of my favorite months. It is jam-packed with celebrations and that is one of the reasons I love it.

In addition to Valentine’s Day, both of my parents’ birthdays are this month. There is always tons of excitement.

Along with that, there are always plenty of opportunities to dress up and go out. Obviously with the cold weather it can be a bit tricky to pick an outfit that is appropriate but I’m always up for the challenge.

Today’s outfit was so much fun to put together and shoot. I have so many fun memories of Valentine’s Day. Most of those memories are from past relationships and others are from days when I was happily single. No matter the circumstances, I love how much love is in the air this month.

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to head down to Chowchilla and meet the owner of an adorable store called Sitting Pretty. They had reached out to me after reading this column and I was more than happy to go.

You know me, I am always thrilled to support local small businesses.

I can’t get over how cute this store is. I walked in and fell in love immediately. There were so many stylish pieces of clothing and at great prices. Before I knew it, my arms were full of clothes to try on.

I found this oversized top and necklace that I’m wearing in the photo. I also found some other pieces too. The owner and her daughter were so sweet and it was a very low-pressure shopping experience, which is another thing I’m a fan of.

I decided to pair this top and necklace with some of my favorite black leggings. It has been really cold lately, so I make sure to wear things that are warm and cozy. I added my stylish tan boots and a simple clutch to complete the look.

This outfit is one of the most comfortable ones I own. It’s classy and comfy; what more could you ask for? If I go out for Valentine’s Day, you can guarantee I’ll be wearing this.

There is something so beautiful about a flowy top that makes you feel beautiful. I am so happy that I was able to pick it out just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Don’t forget to stop by their store in Chowchilla to check out all their great pieces. They even carry workout apparel. It’s a one-stop shop.

Do you have special plans for Valentine’s Day? Can’t decide what to wear? Shoot me an email and I’d be happy to help.
