OOTD: Flirty Florals feat Diane Von Furstenberg, Vince, Baublebar

So Valentine's Day is coming up and it's time for all of the expensive dinners, oversized teddy bears, and fresh bouquets of roses! I've never really been into overspending on dates just for one day since both my boyfriend and I are in college right now. For me, it's simply about being able to spend time with the one I love. Tomorrow, Bae and I are going to a screening party for the anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie at the Angelika in Dallas. Unfortunately, I never got to finish reading the entire trilogy (or the first book), but I'm excited nevertheless.

It's warming up in Texas now (a bit early), so I thought this outfit would be perfect for Valentine's Day and transitioning to spring. I found this super cute and flirty DVF 'Ria' Pink Wing chiffon dress on the clearance rack at TJ Maxx and I've been dying to wear it with these Vince pumps ever since I bought them after New Year's. For me, Marsala is the new black which means I'm using it as a neutral since it is a browned burgundy. Rather than wearing the typical "nude" shoes with this dress, I decided to wear Marsala which is much closer to my "nude" without being too neutral -- there's still color. It looks amazing with pops of pink and teal! 

I'm also wearing a few Baublebar pieces that I picked up at Nordstrom Rack. Tortoise goes with pretty much everything, so I'm wearing my pavé lucite link bracelet to mix prints and not make this outfit so match-y.
