Valentine's Day Look :: red sweater

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

When it comes to Valentine's Day style, I like to think of myself as the Queen of Hearts. I love a killer date night outfit and in February I have the excuse to style as many as possible. What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic! 
I call this a classic evening date look. It's festive enough to compliment the theme of the month yet chic enough to wear any night of the year. 
I absolutely adore this necklace. It knows how to make any outfit memorable and better yet, it completely pops against red. Lately it's been my go-to piece for a solid colored top. 
A polished clutch with a metallic flair is the answer to holding all of your date night essentials in style. 
My boyfriend picked out this gold Stella & Dot bracelet for me last Valentine's Day. Its refined and classic look have me reaching for it time and time again. 
For me, dressing up is part of the fun of Valentine's Day. No matter what kind of night my boyfriend and I have planned you can bet I'll be wearing lipstick and heels. Ps. is it obvious yet how obsessed I am with these booties? 
With a flared fit and sheer panel this skirt has romance written all over it. 
Elegant sunglasses and a daring red lip to seal the deal.

In honor of the month of love, I've decided to dedicate my first three posts of February to all things romantic. First up, this little red sweater. Modest and simple, this sweater provides the perfect burst of color for this special time of year. A feminine black skirt and standout accessories elevate this run-of-the-mill sweater to Valentine's Day status in a heartbeat. 

A basic red sweater may just be what you're missing from your V-Day style equation. Not convinced? Stay tuned for more ingredients you may be missing out on!

  39. My favorite thing about your Valentines outfit is that is perfect for everyday of the year as well! I love this time of year as it is the perfect excuse to get all dolled up! (not like we really need an excuse!) Your Stella and Dot bracelet is so perfect and such a beautiful gift from your boyfriend! I seriously need those boots in my life, I am so obsessed with calf hair lately!
