Love in Chelsea Plaid - Pish to Posh

Love in Chelsea Plaid

So, its Valentines Day.

In full transparency I am not the biggest fan of this day.  BUT I am the biggest fan of my husband and I am the biggest fan of being in LOVE.  I have celebrated 34 Valentines Days and some of them have been fabulous and some have been depressing and some have even been exciting and thrilling but what I have realized over the years is the importance of having love in my life.

I have been married for 6 1/2 years and I fall more in love with Brendan everyday (well most days!).  I could write post after post about how happy I am, I could spend hours chatting your ear off about the comfort of finding someone who accepts me and understands me or I could gush for days about how much Brendan makes me feel grounded while simultaneously giving me wings to fly.. and since today is Valentines Day I just might!! Well maybe not a whole post!

The location of these photos was one of my favorite places in London- they were taken at the Chelsea Court House on Kings Road- every singe time I went by there were people getting married.  Many of you  know I am obsessed with weddings and I love everything wedding related.  In fact, my wedding was the ABSOLUTE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.  So before I left London I insisted on shooting here (for a Valentines Day post) to keep that love alive in my memory and in my future.  As you can see the steps are scattered with confetti from weddings past- of love celebrated over time- of couples who have made the ultimate declaration of love.

Typically I don’t wear traditional Valentines Day colors and while this plaid button up is not exactly red or pink it is a warmer tone and therefore fitting enough for the occasion…. right?!?  And it is a classic button up that is easily paired with anything- in fact I wore it under a crew neck sweatshirt the other day.  It is  light material so perfect for transitioning into spring, it is a little loose fitting which makes it the perfect candidate for a half tuck and I am in love with the bright color plaid.  These denim are just classic skinny cut with a clean appearance and easy to wear with just about anything.  Every fashionista needs a pair of timeless skinnies and these are the answer.  Heels are slowly becoming more of a friend to me- I am sure you can tell as I have been styling these nude ones quiet a lot.  And the  more I wear them the more comfortable they are becoming.  But this look could also be paired with a cute bootie or some fun slip ons.

Let’s talk about the details: the coat is an absolute favorite of mine and I made the mistake of having it <similar> shipped back from the London so I won’t get it back until May!!  Ugh.  It would be prefect on a cool winter morning here in Colorado!  This clutch should look familiar from this post and I am so happy with the purchase!  It holds a lot for a clutch and sometimes I need to take 14 different lip colors with me so size is very important- ha!!  A classic aviator sunnie is a must have and I have not found a better pair then these.  Stick with the originals, right!!

forever in love

Having a built in Valentine for the rest of my life is fabulous but the fact that I get to spend the other 364 days with him is really what makes me the happiest.  Unfortunately it is easy to be lost in the everyday and everyday can sometimes be less defined by love.  But if each day I remember to tell Brendan just how much I love him and everyday I remember to make sure he feels his love is not lost on me.  Are we perfect???  NOPE.  But we are forever in love and forever committed to showing that to each other. On this special day of LOVE I am lucky to be spending it with my forever Valentine.

With Extra Love,

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers
