I know, I know. Such a commercialized “holiday.” But you can’t help but get in the loving spirit sometimes. And if you’re more of a jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl, this outfit is a great way to dress it up just a bit without giving in to the whole facade of this love/hate day. Just like a pop of color, this look gives you just a “pop” of Valentine’s Day 🙂Even if you wore an old t-shirt and jean shorts, there’s something about big curls that gives an air of romance. I used a 2-inch barrel curling iron that I’ve had for ages. Nothing special, maybe a Conair brand – I can’t remember. Either way, I refuse to buy a new one until this one dies.To accessorize, I went with a few staples: Red lips, red statement necklace, and gold stud earrings. If you don’t own a red statement necklace, go get one ASAP. It’s a must-have staple for that perfect pop of color to any simple outfit.The light gray top is very simple, but it’s one of my favorite tops. The neck is a sort of high square neck that gives it an interesting appeal.A rolled up skinny is a new obsession of mine…all thanks to the Who What Wear 30-Day Winter Wardrobe Challenge. I tried it with socks for work during the challenge and just fell in love with it – see it here!
These flats are my favorite, too!! They go with everything. The bling makes it fun. And the wedge gives a little height for us short gals #shortpeopleproblemsTo not be super coordinated, but still coordinated in some way, I added this peach/pink wallet with a gold chain. The gold ties in the accessories and the wallet is in the rouge-color family, so it’s not too matchy, the colors still complement each other, and it’s all Valentine’s Day friendly. 😉There are so many ways to do a casual look, but this one is definitely a timeless look. Staple pieces and solid colors never fail you. Add a pop of Valentine’s Day colors and you’re ready for that sweet date.
Stay tuned for a preppy, work-friendly look and spicy date look later this week ❤
