It seems like yesterday we were celebrating New Years and now here we are, already half way through February. February is always a busy month but one thing I am always happy to make time for is Valentine’s Day.
While I firmly believe that you don’t really need a day to show someone how much you love them, it is always nice to get dressed up and celebrate on a day just for love.
The great thing about Valentine’s Day is that it is no longer just for couples. It can be a day to spend with your best girlfriends, a day to celebrate your children, a day to show yourself some love, and, of course, a day to spend with your significant other. I have put together three different outfits to serve as some inspiration for your Valentine’s festivities and I know that one of them will work for whatever you have planned!
A Little Self Love
For my first look, I went with a casual vibe, perfect for hanging out and showing yourself a little self love. Whether you are shopping, treating yourself to a manicure, or indulging in your favorite dessert, this is the perfect cute and casual look. I decided to feature two of the biggest styles of this season, chenille and velvet. I love the mix of textures and these colors give off the girliest vibes. My favorite part of the whole look would have to be this super fun Kate Spade tote. It is so roomy! I can put all of my essentials, as well as Vivi’s, and still have room to spare. I finished off the look with my favorite pair of stud booties and the cutest little tassel earrings. This look is the perfect mix of cute and casual and will keep you both festive and comfy!
Galentine’s Day Celebration
For my next look, I went with bright colors and a fun print that would be great for a night out with your Girlfriends. Sometimes a Valentine’s Day is best spent with all of those fabulous ladies in your life. Grabbing drinks, dancing the night away and just spending time with the people that always have your back really does sound like an amazing way to spend Valentine’s Day. The print on this jumpsuit was just gorgeous. I was instantly drawn to the colors as soon as I saw it in the store. I pulled out the pink with this fun, velvet blazer. I finished off the look with my newest clutch from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch This subscription, because everyone knows that Pizza is the real MVP on Valentine’s Day!
A Night Out With My Hunny
For my final look, I went full glam, perfect for a night out with my Hubby. I was really inspired by my friend Mireille over at City Peach. She recently posted the cutest tulle cape and sequin socks and I was in love. After seeing her post I went and ordered my own cape and sequin socks. At the time, I had no idea when I would actually get to wear them but while pulling outfits for this post, I knew that would be perfect for this fun Valentine’s look. I love any excuse to dress up and these two items really gave my look the perfect finishing touch for a night out. I paired the items with the cutest little blush dress. This dress was an H&M find that I found on sale for $6! I couldn’t believe my luck. The dress had a looser fit so I cinched the waist with a cute belt. So I could wear the socks, I picked a classic pair of suede booties and then finished my look with gorgeous, blush tassel earrings. And because no look is complete without a little Megan whimsy, I added another fun Kate Spade bag. This little penguin is all dressed up and ready for his night out as well! This look was so much fun and I just loved spinning around in the little tulle cape.
I hope that you enjoyed all of my Valentine’s outfits! I am sure that one of these ideas will work for whatever you have planned, or at least give you some ideas for what to style from your own closet! The best thing about every piece was that I found it already in my closet! Nothing was bought for these pictures and it was so much fun, and a challenge, to put together outfits using items that I already owned! I encourage you to shop your own closet and do the same. Let me know if you go with any of my suggestions. I would love to see what you style for your Valentine festivities! I always love hearing from you!
