Valentine's Festivities

On Valentine's Day my sister brought us red velvet cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake. It was so nice for her to think of us.

We had dinner at Meli.

Meli means honey in Greek.

The food and the decor both had touches of honey.

EAS & JCW

To start I had the goat cheese salad followed by the squash ravioli.

JCW got the lobster mac & cheese and a steak.

My favorite part of the meal was the Chocolate Mousse Bomb I had for dessert. You can also get this dessert from their carry out section.

One Roe Striped Top also turned up during the course of the weekend! It definitely fit the pink criteria but was totally the wrong season so I had to resist the urge to wear it. I found the Roe top fits true to size. I had a couple of people say they had to go up a size but that is always something I try to avoid if possible.

Special thanks to my honey for being such a sweet Valentine! xx

Love love love the Roe top!! I absolutely cannot wait to wear it.
I even tried it on yesterday with a white turtleneck on underneath.... not as cute as it sounds, unfortunately!!
