Happy day after Valentine’s Day everybody! How was your day? Whether you’re single, dating, married, or whatever your status is, I hope it was the best day ever! Valentine’s Day isn’t just about loving others but it’s also about loving yourself!
Anyway, I want to give you guys a little sneak peek into what our Valentine’s Day morning was like. It was honestly ridiculously perfect. It was short and sweet because Molly just got back from school and had to nap (oh my gosh getting her Valentine’s ready or her classmates was so fun! I loved every minute!
Anyway, Kevin planned a little stay-cation/picnic for us because he knew how badly I’ve been craving a getaway to somewhere warm and it was POURING in LA yesterday (so an indoor picnic was perfect!). Plus we just got back from the Midwest and it was COLD! But I had been craving a proper vacation well before our trip. Kevin and I haven’t gone on vacation since we went to Hawaii for our baby-moon when I was pregnant with Riley and we brought Molly with us! Plus it rained the whole time, so it sadly didn’t even feel like a vacay. And before that, we hadn’t been on a trip since before Molly was born. In fact, she’s 2 1/2 and we’ve never left her overnight! Oh wait, that’s a lie. We had to leave her overnight when I was giving birth to Riley. So needless to say, I’ve been craving a little tropical getaway. But at the same time, I’m just not ready to leave the kids! So Kevin knew how badly I wanted some relaxation and planned a little mini stay-cation at our house! He made me a fruity drink, he put out slices of pineapple and strawberry, and even had a little picnic laid out in our house! It was so sweet of him!
The day started with breakfast in bed and he put a note on my breakfast tray that said “Today is your stay-cation! Relax and let me take care of everything.” Sweetest husband ever!! So naturally, I put on vacation clothes! Ha! I’m not even kidding. I put on linen pants, because come on what’s more vacation than that? A white button up shirt, and a new pair Born shoes that I just got. I got them when we were thinking about planning a trip to Hawaii. I just thought they would be a really cute vacation/spring shoe. When I got them we had put our travel plans on hold, but I held onto them anyway to save them for an upcoming trip! And they’re super cute right? So cute that I’m giving away a couple pairs today! Which is really the MAIN point of today’s post! Plus I wanted to mention what a sweet husband I have. I am truly lucky.
I wanted to share the LOVE after Valentines day. So here’s all you have to do to enter for a chance to win:
- Tag a friend on either my Instagram post or Facebook post (which will be up later this morning) where I’m wearing my Børn shoes. Because that friend will also win if you win! Or if you rather win a pair for you kiddos – tag your hubby or wifey! My husband is my main bestie anyway!
- And the only other thing you have to do is comment below telling me what color shoes you would want if you win! Click here and here to see the two styles
I will choose a winner on Monday!
And if you don’t win, don’t forget to use my discount code ALILUVS15 until March 1st for 15% off! I highly suggest the pair I’m wearing in the photos at the end of this post as well!
The kids are also all wearing Born shoes – Kevin too! Can you tell I went a little crazy picking out styles on their website a couple weeks ago?! Ha! I just love their shoes. Molly’s shoes have a rainbow on them and she never wants to take them off. Riley shoes are a little big on him but I purposely got the size he will need when he starts walking – which will be this spring or summer! And Kevin’s are on sale!
In general, I highly suggest checking out Born shoes! Their styles are so stinking cute this season and as a huge bonus they are basically the most comfortable shoes ever! I also got the pair in the below photos (the Capricorn in Black Croc). They are perfect to wear to the office this summer or spring! And you could totally wear them to dinner on a vacation. Multi-purpose for sure and easy to slip on. I knew a while back that I was doing this giveaway on my blog and originally it was going to focus around this shoe. But then when Kevin planned the little picnic, I couldn’t help but change the focus of this post. If you’d rather win the Capricorn shoes in the below pics you can tell me that in the comments below (just tell me size and color)! Whatever shoe you like most! (And if you don’t win, don’t forget to use my discount code ALILUVS15 to get 15% off these shoes too or any shoes on Born’s site!)
And I just love this black and white outfit too. My pants are only $12.99! Not even kidding. Because I got the pants for SUCH a great price, I am able to splurge on other things – like my blazer. I actually bought this blazer years ago but their new version of it is basically the same. When I wear a basic look like this I always this it’s a good idea to have fun with accessories. That’s why I love the black croc style of my loafers and my fun fringe bag! This bag totally completes the outfit!
Well I hope you guys love today’s post. And I hope you enjoy these giveaways! I’ve given away Born shoes 3 other times on my blog and the people who have won have written me telling me that they LOVE them so much! If you’re one of those people please comment below too! Tell everyone how much you love them! Happy Friday guys! Hope you all have a great weekend!
