Hi there, Valentine! ;-)
Today is February 1st! And for some of you that might be super excitinggggg and for some, not so much. And that is OK.
Last week on Instagram I shared that I would be blogging 3 Valentine’s Day inspired outfits, and 3 “Anti” – Valentine’s Day inspired outfits. Hehe.
Now I promise I didn’t dress up like Joan Jett. The “anti’s” are very wearable and still cute. A lot of black is involved, but if you’ve been reading my blog for any period of time you know I love black. lol So it’s all good!
I personally love February. Everything is pink and shaped like hearts. And honestly, I can totally dig that. Plus CHOCOLATE. I mean, if you aren’t a fan of this greeting card holiday atleast buy a box of chocolate. Or better yet, I will buy you a box of chocolate ;-)
OK, let’s start with an “Anti” shall we? :-)
I actually love this look and it’s really similar to the outfit I wore here.
ALSO! A word about these jeans! I have finally found a brand/size/style of “skinny” jeans that I feel I can wear modestly! These are Kensie Brand “Knockout Skinny” jeans. I know what you’re thinking! But I went up a size from what I normally buy and they fit great! They retail on the site for $58 but I found mine at a T.J.Maxx for $19.99. I also bought them in black, tan, and olive green! haha. I HANG DRY them to make sure they stay loose fitting but I really really love them!
And now, for it’s Valentine’s Day loving counter part… ;-)
I LOVE this red cable knit sweater! It’s a great staple piece for winter and it goes well with black ;-) haha! And of course, I had to add a girly bow in my hair!!!
If you’re not a Valentine’s day person.. for whatever reason, you could just go totally neutral and pretend like you have no clue what day it is- wear olive green and brown! Because that is definitely not valentine-y!
Also, this is how I styled one of my epic barettes (tutorial here!)
BUT if you do want to show your festivity, maybe not in an obnoxious way…you could play it classy for work- subtle but show the love ;-)
I paired a red dress shirt (from thredUP – duh) with black dress pants and boots (also from thredUP) and a cute cardigan/jacket thing. LOL
MAYBE you don’t HATE Valentine’s day, you just don’t want to dress like an obnoxious blogger you know (ahem- that Modest Blondie, what will we ever do with her?!) Play it cool with polka dots and dress jean trousers. (Both of these also from thredUP) :-D
OK- but MAYBE you just want to be obnoxious! Like some people go all out for New Year’s Eve but your thing… your thing is VALENTINE’S DAY!
I say- go for it! Lipstick scarves and heart shaped crossbody bags for EVERYONE!!! (Found these items at Charming Charlie but cold not find a link) <3
So! Are you A Valentine’s Day Lover… or Hater? Hehe :-)
What is your go-to look for February 14th?
keep on keeping on…
