Another Valentines Day

This is the third Valentines Day post seen here at Chic on the Cheap, and the third post in which I have nothing more interesting to share than an outfit worn to work.

No fancy dress for going out to dinner, no sequined clutch nor super high heels. No dinner date to look forward to, no gifts in small velvet boxes to be received.

But maybe 2012 will be my year. Maybe next Valentines Day I'll have something to blog about.
Here is hoping.

Pink + Red | Everybody, Everywear

To prove to you that I can still be good natured about v-day, I made these absurdly adorable peanut butter blossoms, doused in red food dye, complete with truffle hearts and hugs.

Awwww Lydia, you're so sweet. You look great and I love this work outfit.

That clutch is AH-MAY-ZINGGGGG and I love love love that chunky chain link bracelet. Killer!

Bre said...

I think you look beautiful. Why didn't you tell me that you didn't have a valentine. I would have sent you a little something to make your day sweet.
In the mean time, can you please send me one of those peanut butter cookies? I am drooling over here!

Myisha said...

Well guess what??? You are fabulous and so are your cookies ;). Happy V-day Lydia!

Eh, V Day is overrated and an exaggerated consumer driven "holiday" anyway. I don't get into it. I do enjoy your pink and red look!

Robyn said...

I adore the outfit - it's the perfect amount of red and pink. And those cookies.....yummmmmmm

Courtney Erin said...

We actually don't really celebrate Valentine's so I am really looking forward to a lady's date the gym tonight and then some TV viewing...no heels and fancy dinners for this gal either!

Anne said...

Do people actually do any of that stuff? This year I went out for a nice dinner with 3 girlfriends for Valentine's Day - it's typically more fun that way :)

Cute cookies! I never thought to add food coloring, but wow, such a fun idea!

I love this color combo and I totally want your hair.

I have never celebrated V day Lyddie - always single or dating someone allergic to Valentine's :) So no sequins for me tonight either. I will be in dirty jeans painting cupboards!

Loren said...

Those cookies look AMAZING. Love the clutch. I think the v-day outfit is really sweet. I'm sure the next year will make sure you are lucky in love.

Amber said...

well you look amazing. I have my fingers crossed that next year this time we will be hearing all about you and your new boy :)

Total cutie. I'm especially fond of the mustard clutch--makes the floral print really pop! (PS...I'm totally wearing the dress version of your shirt today!)

Found you through EBEW--stop by and say hi if you have a second. Always love meeting new people. Happy Valentines to you, chickadee.

Those cookies are getting Pinned right now. So I really did intend to do EBEW this time, and I'm even wearing pink and red today, but... my broken lens would not cooperate. I love this blouse with red and yellow! It's different than the many ways I've seen it styled before.

Kavery said...

Don't worry about V day. It's a lot of hype I feel. And when you look this good there's nothing to fret about at all!

Little Tree Vintage said...

happy valentine's day! don't fret, you still can love yourself and that's just as good!

Melina said...

Pssshh, v-day is overrated. And at least you made amazing cookies AND dressed up super cute for it! That's far more blog worthy than anything I'm up to today. :)

Katie said...

Love the color blocking in this outfit. I just got a new red dress, and I've been toying with the idea of mixing it with pink, so I love having something to look at!

the cookies look and sound delicious. Romance often hits us when we least expect it.

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww you look so very beautiful:) I love the whole outfit and your skirt is so stunning. Muah, darling

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

Oh my goodness your V-Day cookies are adorable! And so is your outfit- very festive, who needs a velvet box when you are so stylin'!

Vanessa said...

These cookies are delightfully perfect! I love how you arranged them on the cake platter, too.
Hope your work day was fun, even if it wasn't full of super-high-heels and fancy dinner dates!

Shawna said...

You look fantastic!! Happy Valentines Day!

Jessica said...

You look lovely and perfectly festive. If it makes you feel better, we went out for a quick dinner, then returned home to put on pjs and watch TV. We're an exciting couple.

Cathy said...

LOVE!!!!! You look amazing!
