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.
