I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
Starting this week out with our last Valentine’s themed post. In addition to a dressier outfit, you all requested a more casual Valentine’s look. Any holiday, but this one especially, is a good reason to dress up a bit more than usual because you’re typically going out with your significant other or friends. Or, maybe you’re staying home but want to look extra good for that special someone 😉. Either way, I’m with you guys as I too like to keep things pretty casual.
Although it doesn’t have the stereotypical pink or red, this outfit is still perfect for the Holiday. The statement sleeves on this top from Nordstrom add a trendy, feminine touch while the black and white stripes give it an overall classic look. This top does also come in pink and white stripes for those looking for that traditional Valentine’s color! It’s priced at $45 and can easily be worn into spring. It runs a little big so definitely size down one size! The body has an overall oversized fit and is a little cropped. It came down just a little past the waistline of my mid-rise jeans.
In my opinion, pairing this top with white pants is what makes this look so perfect for Valentine’s. It gives it an all-around feminine look that would be perfect to wear throughout the spring as well. I accessorized this outfit with these tassel earrings from SugarFix that I’m already planning on packing on our trip to Florida in March. Side note about tassel earrings. On the surface, these earrings can be very preppy looking, which isn’t my style. However, paired with a more neutral outfit like this one, you can make them look more chic and less preppy. I’m also wearing my new tan booties, which are actually just a tan version of the black booties you see in so many of my photos!
If you’re looking for more Valentine’s inspiration, I wrote a post on dressy Valentine’s outfits here or gift ideas for him or her here. I’ve consolidated all of my Valentine’s posts in a new category at the top of the page for easy navigating!
Also, it’s super fun that I steamed this top before this shoot then it instantly was wrinkled by the wind. Love winter 😒
How was your weekend? This past Saturday, Kev and I went downtown to explore the pre-Super Bowl festivities. They started this past weekend and go until this coming Sunday (the Super Bowl). We had a lot of fun exploring everything although it was SUPER cold and every restaurant was super crowded! Yesterday we went out to lunch and then Kevin proceeded to beat me at Yahtzee 5 times while we watched Netflix lol!
Stay tuned this week for my first instagram roundup and and a post on my fitness tips and tricks!
