Valentine's Day LookBOOK

If you have an outing planned for Valentine's Day, you're going to need the perfect outfit! Whether it's a fancy dinner, a casual evening, or a cozy night at home I've pulled together a few flawless looks for all of those options! They're all guaranteed to make him swoon!

The Fancy Dinner Date

 
 

Y'all. This romper. The lace, the neckline, the sleeves! I love EVERYTHING about it. The high neckline keeps it classy, but the plunging lace down the front makes it a little bit sassy! If you're headed out for a more upscale dining experience or out on the town with the girls this is the PERFECT outfit. And can we talk about these shoes? These pom pom ankle strap pumps are SO CUTE! I also have to take a minute to talk about this envelope clutch. I got it back in December and it has been the best purchase! You can carry it as a clutch or a cross body, and you can dress it up or down! I highly reccommend!

 

A CASUAL EVENING 

 
 

So this is probably my favorite look, but it's actually the look that is the most out of my comfort zone. I'm usually pretty simple when it comes to tops and don't wear jackets a lot. It's probably because I am morally opposed to cold weather. HATE. IT. But this jacket is so soft - it's a blush suede so it has a flirty feel to it. The lace top underneath is actually very see-through - also very out of my comfort zone, but it works great paired with a nude bandeau and mid rise denim. This look is great for dinner and movie, a coffee date or a casual stroll downtown!

 

COZY AT HOME

 
 
 

Lately, I choose comfort over cute more than I'd like to admit. And I have an ever-expanding collection of grey sweaters. This one is my new favorite. My boo and I are staying in for Valentine's day this year. We're going to cook a nice dinner, get some Monster trail mix from Target, and there's a 99% chance we'll end up playing video games or watching a movie then falling asleep on the couch. Exciting right? Actually, it is. I can't wait. We're not old and boring I promise, but we're very much looking forward to spending some quality time together without the pressure of making reservations and fighting the crowds. So we'll be in our cozy apartment, curled up with our golden retriever pup, Max. And I will be rocking this comfy cozy tee and some leggings! (They also have one that says "Happiest In Love" - you should totally get that one to wear if you and your boo are staying in, too!)
