Good morning! Keeping things short and sweet today as I share some V-Day outfit inspo. I know I’m a little late to the party (I feel like my Instagram feed has been all things red and pink since mid-January), but my approach to Valentine’s Day dressing has always involved coming up with an outfit last-minute, so it seems only natural that my blog reflect that, too.
I always love seeing all the pink and red clothing this time of year, with cutesy heart details everywhere and heart-themed accessories. But as fun as those pieces are, I don’t really own anything like that myself! My red and pink wardrobe mainly consists of one light pink sweater (which I wear almost weekly) and one bright red blouse. Naturally, my Valentine’s Day outfits usually include one of those items.
I’ve also noticed, that because I don’t have anything too cutesy for the holiday, my Valentine’s Day looks—including today’s—usually turn out a little edgier than the outfits popular on social media. Lots of black, choker necklaces, pleather, etc. You can see some of my past edgy V-Day outfits at the links below!
And for those of you who prefer the more traditional, girly V-Day look, I have a few of those posts, too, including an all rose-gold outfit. See them below:
My dad helped me take these photos the first week of January, back when I was still at home. You may recall from my December 2020 Month in Review that I was given this fabulous sequin jacket as a Christmas gift! I knew right away that it would be perfect for New Year’s Eve, but I also thought about how fun it would be to style for Valentine’s Day. I paired it with a simple grey v-neck and my go-to black corduroy skirt, and I also threw in red heart-print socks as my subtle ‘cutesy’ piece.
What do you think of this outfit? Would you wear it for Valentine’s Day, or do you prefer something a little more traditional and girly? I don’t have any plans for the holiday; I think my roommate and I will just watch cheesy rom-coms with popcorn and candy. Of course, V-Day is looking different for everyone this year, but there are still so many fun ways to celebrate at home. I went all-out last year, trying to fit in as many love-themed activities as possible, and you can check out the post (and all my ideas) here if you’re looking for a way to spend the day!
Thanks for stopping by the blog, and I hope you have a great start to your week.
