painting the town red

Valentine's day - depressing if you are single, stressful if you are not. What to do, what to get? While I fail miserably any given Valentine to pull off anything remotely surprising or romantic, my man T passes with  flying shades of red. As a result, I have a truck load of memories and fun times that I have had with T over the years. But what stands out as one of the best times ever is our first Valentine's Day as a couple. 

Back in the day we were humanitarians, saving the peoples of Iraq from Amman, Jordan. We developed quite a little penchant for this ultra cool rip-off of the Parisian Buddha Bar inside the most ostentatious hotel, like ever, called Le Royal. Oriental lounge that the Buddha Bar Amman was, they used to make KILLER frozen margaritas. And logically that is where we went to celebrate our new love. Having had a few of the aforementioned drinks, we went back to his place, where unprovoked, T put on some Neil Diamond, grabbed hold of his eyeglasses case (his version of the hairbrush microphone since he does not brush his hair), and belted out Sweet Caroline. I think I might have fallen off the couch,  and in even deeper love after that serenade. Needless to say he became my Valentine forever (let's face it people it was a Neil Diamond lip sync after all).

On the fashion side of things, I decided that wearing all red on this day of looove would be too predictable, so instead I spiced up my French sailor-ess get-up with splashes of the glorious colour of love. Happy Valentine's Day!


P.S. Ooopsies my purse is facing backwards in the pic below. What can I tell you it was 8 o'clock a.m.
