Look like a Sweetheart on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up in just a week!  Whether you’re spending the day with a special someone, a group of close friends, or chillin’ by yourself, it’s a great excuse to get dressed up and eat chocolate.  At least, that’s my plan.  In fact, I’m especially excited for Valentine’s Day this year, because for the first time, I actually have someone to spend it with! And of course, being the planning maniac that I am, I can’t wait to make the day super special. So with that in mind, here’s my take on how to look like the perfect Valentine, and some of the plans I have in store!

Sweet T Valentine

Keep it classic and easy with a pleated skirt and a basic t shirt.  I found these at the thrift store, but these basic pieces should be pretty easy to find in most stores or online.

Fire Red Siren

Spice it up in red from head to toe! I love how sweet this A-line dress is with the keyhole cutout. I found the red Chinese Laundry shoes at the thrift store, but I’ve linked some similar ones below.

Deep Romance

This is my personal favorite look, and the one I plan to don for my Valentine’s Day dinner.  It’s dark, romantic, and just gorgeous.  Plus, I’m a sucker for lace.

My guy and I are a quirky couple, so finally, our plans for the evening after we’ve gone out to dinner are to come home, have a movie night, and snuggle up in these adorable animal onesies:

I hope you have a great February!  Happy Valentine-ing, and eat lots of chocolate for me <3 !
