Little Red Dress

 photo hearts1_zps1ccd963e.jpg
Good Morning loves and a happy heart day to you!! Now, I don't actually like Valentine's day but give me a theme and I'm off and running. And as you know it's Heart and Stroke awareness month and this is super important to me. One of the campiagns is "The Heart Truth" which focuses on the fact that heart disease and stroke is the leading killer of women! This is not okay, which is why it's so important to talk to your doctor about heart health (at any age, trust me). One of the visual components of this campaign is the red dress, so what better way to celebrate Heart month and Valentines day than putting on my red dress and supporting heart health research!
Of course I picked a red dress with lace, because I am obsessed with lace. I love the fit and flare of this dress, I decided to keep it simple with black tights, black heels and lots of silver jewellery. This outfit is best accessorized with these heart foil balloon's though, which Mr.Duke is TERRIFIED of. I did my best to get a photo of him with them, but it took a lot of treats and cohersion.
I hope everyone spends the day with the people (or pets) they love!!
Also, a donation of any amount can be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation here and is greatly appreciated!!

  10. I love this outfit, I don't think I have ever seen a cuter/ more appropriate dress for valentines day than yours! MrDuke is SO adorable, I used to be a little afraid of balloons too so I can see where he's coming from :) I had these balloons in my post this year and really wanted to do it again but ran out of time! I hope you have a wonderful day!

  11. MR DUKE! The cutest. Ah! But no, you are too. I love the red dress and the heart balloons - heart health is such a serious issue and I'd rather donate to that. My husband's had heart issues and it's not fun to be in a hospital not knowing what's going on.

    1. Being in the hospital is the absolute worst, a week feels like a month. I hope your husbands heart issues are settled and he's doing well! I agree, donating to heart health research is super important, I'll probably campaign every February from now on :)

  13. You kill me with cuteness here Jenna! Not to get cheesy, but I am totally smitten with your outfit and photos :-) I love even more that you are wearing it for The Heart Truth campaign - what a great cause and way to bring awareness to this issue that affects so many women.

    You are just a doll :-) Happiest Valentines!

  14. I think it's so great that you're such a big supporter and so vocal about Heart Month! It is so important, and you've inspired me to follow up a bit more on some of the weird things I've dealt with with my heart in the past! Love this red dress - you suit lace so beautifully, and this colour is perfect on you!

  23. Aww Duke and his sweater! So cute!
    You look absolutely gorgeous in your red dress. I love the red balloon props and how the color of your nail polish pops with the red dress. All the silver jewelry is fantastic too. You always layer your bracelets and rings and such so perfectly.

  24. Happy Valentine's Day, lady! Poor Duke, afraid of the balloons - he looks adorable posing with them, anyway, and so do you. You can never go wrong with a good red dress, especially if it`s a red lace dress. In fact, this one is so perfect I`m sitting here wishing we had Dynamite in Europe, ha ha :)
