Truth be told I love dressing for Valentine’s Day more than celebrating the actual holiday itself. Every day should be a reason to celebrate romance! I welcome any excuse to wear pink and red — one of my favorite color combos. I also love a good heart print. Dressing up for Valentine’s Day is always fun whether you are hanging out with your loved one, heading to work, or going out with friends. The bold colors and prints are a bright spot in the dead of winter.

It’s been a relatively mild winter in New England. I really want snow and all of the beauty a winter wonderland brings but I’m also content with these slightly warmer temps. We took these pictures in the middle of November during our trip to Stowe, Vermont to shoot a few pieces from our Kiel James Patrick holiday collection.

The Mount Washington Hotel has always slightly reminded me of the iconic Timberline Lodge, the famously eerie hotel filmed in the movie The Shining. It’s grand and beautiful in a way that only old hotels can be. Over the years Kiel and I have stayed at the Mount Washington, located in New Hampshire, numerous times. It’s one of our favorite places to recharge and feel inspired. They also throw a fabulous New Year’s Eve party! We return year after year for the cozy environment, gorgeous mountain range views, delicious food, skiing, and real life ghost story.
