Roses are red, violets are blue and heads will turn to look at you. Who out there is a huge fan of Valentine’s Day? Or not? I honestly can’t believe it’s already here. This time last year I was laid up in bed after having major shoulder surgery. Needless to say my Valentine’s date night was non-existent in 2017. That is definitely going to change this year! Grayson and I made reservations at one of our favorite sushi spots in Austin; Uchi. If you are ever in ATX you MUST go eat there. I’m not normally one that likes Valentine’s but I feel like it’s an excuse to clear the schedule and actually get out together while we both have some free time! How sad. 😂
I feel as though I sound like a broken record saying this but this HAS to be my favorite Splurge or Steal column to date, hands down. Mainly because my lovely husband made an appearance and that we shot at one of the most beautiful hotels in Austin. Hotel Ella is located near the heart of downtown Austin and walking distance to the University of Texas campus. It is such a stylish boutique hotel housed in the historic Goodall Wooten House, one of Austin’s original landmark estates. We normally shoot these columns in a studio so it’s been an absolute treat to get out and show off some fun Austin locations.
SO, whether you have a hot Valentine’s date or not, this post can still serve as a helpful guide to gather inspiration for a cute couple’s look.

Once I spotted this Self Portrait dress, I knew it was going to make it into this month’s column. Not to mention, it’s been recreated into so many affordable options I knew it would be a hit for those of y’all who want to stick to a budget. Personally, I loved the affordable, Donna Morgan version of this dress. It is so hard for me to actually splurge on expensive clothing so I always opt for more affordable pieces. Unless of course we’re talking accessories. I’ll definitely splurge for those! 😜
