With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, my to-do list is growing every day. Namely, I need to figure out what I’m going to wear!!
I’m in that awkward life stage that comes with your late twenties—where the ratio of graphic tees to button-ups changes and you find yourself buying more solids than patterns. I’m trying to find my own sense of style and with only a few *special occasion* pieces in my closet to pick from, I’m in need of some inspiration. Thank goodness for Polyvore!
If you’re looking for some last minute ideas, like me, here are three Valentine’s Day outfits I put together, with three different types of dates in mind.
Valentine’s Day means different things to different people. Maybe for you, it’s a casual coffee date as you get to know the other person. Or, maybe you’re sticking with your girls this year and catching up over lattes is the perfect start to a lovely Galentine’s Day. Either way, why not look your best? Try pairing a midi-skirt with a cute blouse and flats, adding in pops of color to be festive.
Anyone can make a reservation at a restaurant—few people can pull off a picnic. If your significant other is the type to thoughtfully pack a picnic lunch for the two of you to enjoy in a beautiful setting, then check out this outfit! A floral romper ensures you’ll be able to sit on the ground comfortably, while still looking gorgeous. Style it with a wide brim hat and a pair of casual sandals you can kick off, if needed.
A classic choice! You can’t go wrong with delicious food and the ambiance of candlelight. Go all out and wow your date with a fancy dress and a pair of heels, even if you’re just celebrating at home. Men love this look—especially if it’s out of the ordinary. Besides, you’ll feel great, knowing you look great! And, what better day is there to rock a red lace dress?
I hope these outfits give you some ideas for Valentine’s Day, no matter what your plans are! Which one is your favorite?
