Valentine's Eve | Black Floral Dress and Studded Pumps

Dress: ASOS || Accessories: Kate Spade bag, Kate Spade necklace (similar here) || Shoes: Sole Society Tiia in 'Black Adobe'

Here's another look for Valentine's Day - a little black dress with big floral prints! I actually find this dress to be quite versatile for many occasions, not just Valentine's day so if you're in the market for a dress that'll be good for work and date night, I highly recommend this one. 
We took these photos in New York the first night we got there (so pardon my disheveled appearance). It actually wasn't terribly cold this past weekend there except on the last night when we got freezing rain. That was bad - I didn't have anything in my suitcase that could have prepared me for that! Otherwise, the temperatures weren't so bad that I felt like I would freeze without tights. I traveled by cab for the most part and most of the snow was cleared up so I didn't need boots either.
I wore this dress for dinner at the Gin Parlour. It was a great meal and I am so glad we started off our first NYC meal there! All the food was great and the cocktails were amazing!
I'm back in DC from my brief stint at New York Fashion Week and I still have quite a bit of editing, unpacking, and sifting through photos to do but I think I can safely say that this weekend was incredible! I was so inspired by all the creativity and beauty and I'm sad I couldn't stay for longer. It's crazy because the week started off so badly for me - I was stressed out and a lot of things didn't seem like it was going the way I was planning for it to. But when the weekend came, everything was okay again and I had nothing but the best time.
I will have a post up on Wednesday on the fashion show I attended so stay tuned!
