Inspired By: Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you're enjoying this day of love by either having a romantic night with your significant other or by having a girl's night or by spending time with your family or maybe by indulging in some alone time with a rom-com (or all the above!). Whatever you're doing, may it involve heart-shaped things, kisses, hugs, laughter, chocolate, and the person you love!

Romantic Picnic

A romantic picnic is a lovely way to spend Valentine's Day if you live in a warmer climate. Set out a blanket on the grass, indulge in champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, and lie down next to your love to cloud watch and talk. For a casual picnic, wear a plaid shirt over a blue, silky dress, polka dot headband, and purple Keds. If it's a fancier picnic, don a blue sleeveless dress, heart-shaped earrings, a blue cuff, and bow heels.

Fancy Outing
Inspired By: Fancy Outings
Maybe you're going out for a night on the town? Dinner in a snazzy restaurant, seeing a play or ballet, dancing til your feet hurt, a house party, a surprise stop in a jewelry store, and/or a walk in the park. To shine, wear a gold metallic skirt with a lace black top, ruffled black coat, sequined black booties, and a gold purse. Or go super romantic in a bright red dress, trench coat, nude heels, and gold jewelry.

Candlelit Dinner
Inspired By: Candlelit Dinner
If you and your love are going for a movie-worthy night, the perfect setting is a candlelit dinner on the beach or a rooftop. Who can resist twinkle lights, wine, a hot dinner, music playing in the background, and sharing dessert between kisses? *:-* kiss On this romantic night, put on a purple dress, sparkly earrings, maryjane wedges, and a black floral shawl to keep warm. Or wear a burgandy sweater over a lace peplum top, pink pencil skirt, heart-print scarf, bow ring, and sexy heels.

A Night In
Inspired By: A Night In
Maybe a cozy night in is your thing! If that's the case, you can cuddle close to the person you love, watch a rom-com, drink hot chocolate (maybe spiked with your favorite liquor), and get extra snuggly (if you know what I mean *wink wink*). *;) winking To be super comfy, wear a sequined heart sweater, pj's, and boot slippers. Or if you want to be a little dressed up, slip on a heart-print sweater dress. Underneath the dress or the pj's, put on some sexy lace underwear.

How will you be spending your Valentine's Day?

  6. I love all of these looks, but I have to admit, I'm especially sold on the picnic one - mainly because I really wish I lived somewhere where it was feasible to go on a picnic in February :) Happy Valentine's Day, my dear!
