1) How would you describe your date night in general?
Our date nights are usually pretty low-key. We’ll typically go to dinner at a nice restaurant, maybe catch a movie or go walk around somewhere. Also, maybe it’s just us, but we always end up at Target. Might as well pick up some new lipsticks, paper towels, and a new lamp since you’re already out! Haha.

2) Would you rather go out or stay in?
I love both! It definitely depends on my mood, but most of the time I love going out for a bit, grabbing a bite, and then just relaxing at home with Netflix!

3) What would your personalized candy heart say?
Hey Girl (because Ryan Gosling memes are the epitome of romance, right?)

4) What’s your most memorable Valentine’s Day?
All of our Valentine’s Day celebrations are pretty memorable. We usually try to go out of town, even if it’s just for the night! It’s always nice to explore somewhere new together. A recent trip of ours was to Las Vegas to sit front row center at a Cirque du Soleil show–so amazing!

5) What are your plans for this Valentine’s Day?
We actually just confirmed that a friend is coming to visit that weekend, so we’ll be doing the requisite trip to Disneyland on the 14th, but the weekend after, we’re headed to Hawaii for a weeklong getaway! So excited!

6) What are you planning to wear for this Valentine’s Day?
You can’t go wrong with a flirty little dress. I don’t know for sure exactly which one yet, but I’ll definitely be reaching for a cute dress, probably some ankle booties, and my trusty leather jacket!

7) Tell us a little bit about why you picked these pieces from the Valentine’s Day collection.  Any thoughts on how you would style them?
I love a great dress, and these are all so easy to style with a great pair of heels or booties and a sparkly clutch. You can’t go wrong with red during Valentine’s Day, so my favorite is definitely the red Julian Taylor dress! With a strappy pair of heels, a sleek clutch, and a smoky eye, you’ll be ready to wow, whether you’re headed for a hot date or a girls’ night out!
