Alternative Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea

I shared a look on Monday that screamed Valentine’s Day, but now I’m sharing a look that is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Whether you are giving the day the middle finger or you are just keeping it low key, this outfit is perfect for that.

Distressed denim, a funky top, faux fur accents and pops of reddish hues. All go together for the perfect alternative outfit for celebrating Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day or just a winter date night next week (or any day for that matter). I get it, we all don’t celebrate the cheesy holiday for numerous reasons, but isn’t it always fun to add a little fun pop of color especially with some colored faux fur or leather jacket. And this top. So warm and cozy (aka comfy wear) but made special with the leopard sleeves and the sequin embellishment.

You don’t have to go full blown pink and red to feel festive for Valentine’s Day. You can add pops of pink if you want but also not something you have to go out and buy. Wear what you want girlfriend! Celebrate how you want!

 

Pretty In Pink For Valentine’s Day

Holidays are the only time I break my own fashion rules. As in I dress pretty neutral for the majority of the year, but when the opportunity opens up for me to wear some sort of festive dress, I will more than likely jump at the chance. Which is why I have this flowy pink (it’s actually more on the peach side of the spectrum) dress. I actually bought this dress for Easter Brunch last year (since we actually went somewhere extra fancy) and have never really worn it again. Which I’m not upset about because I got it for a super steal on BooHoo (honestly wasn’t expecting the quality to be as good as it was). So it was sitting in my closet ready to offer it up for anyone who wants it and was like oooooo this will be the perfect dress for Valentine’s Day and possibly Easter again. Or even to visit Biltmore Blooms.

So here I am dressed in a pink dress, which is my most hated color especially for clothing for one of the cheesiest holidays we celebrate. Though cheesy and controlled by the retail industry I still celebrate and still love it. I don’t get why people hate on it. Consumerism is a part of our daily life so what gives. Any excuse for me to get dressed up and write hand written cards is a win win in my book. Ohhh and by dressed up, I mean even for making a frozen pizza at home.

But this dress just screams Valentine’s Day. It’s off the shoulder which gives it a sexy, sultry vibe, but flirty, fun and conservative with the ruffles, shape and length. Perfect for dancing in or just twirling around in. And bringing back my Christmas shoes, because red DUH, for a playful fun take on the whole outfit. Kept all my jewelry simple to focus on the flows of this dress. Move over stuffy, over planned date night, I’m ready for something fun!
