I was sent this dress to style from Boohoo. It was also my Christmas Eve dress. All opinions are my own.

So, sad story. Will and I want to go to one of our favorite restaurants in Kinston for Valentine’s Day. It’s called Chef & The Farmer and it’s in historic, downtown Kinston. We went there for the first time years ago and it’s apparently gained in popularity since then. The owner/founder/head chef has a PBS show now that documents her life as a chef in rural Eastern North Carolina. Their focus is locally grown food. Through a small network of local farmers, her menus change with the seasons.
We’ve never had trouble making reservations, but they are already completely booked up for Valentine’s weekend … and the following weekend! In fact, the first Saturday available is in March. We’ve put our names on the wait list, but we’re #21 so… We will probably find somewhere else to eat, but I won’t have any trouble putting together an outfit because I’ve already planned what I’m going to wear.
Boohoo sent me this dress back during Christmas, and I’ve decided that it’s just as perfect as a Valentine’s Day outfit. It is just so comfortable, and I feel very confident in it. The cutout details are so pretty and add a little something special to an otherwise simple dress.
Now, I have a little special something for you all! Boohoo sent me some shoes and clutch that I can give away to two readers. I’ve included photos of the items down below. Also, the shoes are size 8! We’re going to do something different for this giveaway. Since I want to send the items out before Valentine’s Day (in case you want to wear them for going out on that day!), I will be doing this giveaway quickly on Twitter.
I want to know what your plans are for Valentine’s Day. Are you going out with friends? Staying in and watching movie? Maybe having a romantic date night? Doesn’t matter what is!
Tweet me with your plans, which item you want to win, and the hashtag #rebeccalatelygiveaway. I will be using a random number generator to choose the winners. First winner will receive the shoes, and second winner will receive the clutch. I announce the winners on Friday night after 8 pm (cause that’s when the kids go to bed). I will update this blog post and also announce it on Twitter.
UPDATE: The winners were announced on my Twitter feed. Debby (@debby_f) won the heels. Heather (@aitch_77) won the clutch. Congratulations!
