A Simple Valentine’s Day Outfit


Whether you’re single, dating, or in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year, Dylan and I are going to Phoenix and meeting up with some of our old college friends. We’ve done the whole going out to a nice restaurant thing and I think after running the LA Marathon and going on a double date with my parents on Valentine’s Day last year, we want this year to be a bit more casual and fun.  Continue Reading

With Valentine’s day being tomorrow, there have been a plethora of Youtube videos about this glorious Hallmark holiday ranging from activity ideas to makeup tutorials to what you should wear.  The best part of these videos is the two minute intro when these girls tell you that they’re single and all the reasons why they are single, wah wah wah, just get to the good stuff already – I want to know how to look like I’m not wearing any makeup while ironically, wearing tons of it.  Teach me your ways!

To be honest, I don’t really see the point of Valentine’s Day, but I do enjoy a nice heart-shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  I wouldn’t say that my attitude towards Valentine’s Day is negative, but rather, indifferent.  One thing is for sure, I will not be caught dead in anything pink or red tomorrow – that is where I draw the line.  I am all for a girl’s night out or a girl’s night in where you just drink wine, eat cheese, and gossip (that actually sounds great).  I will even tolerate some PDA -but if you decide to turn your dinner plans into a make-out sesh, I will make a snarky comment.

Okay, now that you have wasted two minutes reading my ramblings about this “holiday”, I’m going to put your cogitations to rest and say yes, those are some white skinny jeans underneath the dress – you gotta keep your legs warm.  I was drawn to this dress because of its ombre effect.  I like how it gets darker towards the middle, giving you a slimmer and more defined waist.  The belt doesn’t hurt either.  Since I wanted the dress to be the focal point of the outfit, I went with some more neutral shoes and outerwear.  I love winter white and I think it really compliments the lightest hue of blue in the dress.  Finally, I have been trying to cut down on my make-up, so I will literally just use powder foundation to even out my skin and this new Milani Blush in Bella Rosa gives my skin the perfect “I’ve just been outside in the cold” flush.

And let’s be real for one second, although I love this outfit, I am so looking forward to the part of the night where I can just chill in my sweats.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Let me know!

Stay Chic!
