Confession – Charlie and I are not Valentine’s Day people. We never have been, not even when we first started dating. We don’t do gifts, we don’t go out to celebrate. It is just another day in our house. We did make the mistake of going out to dinner one time on Valentine’s Day (not remembering that is was, in fact, the biggest date night of the year), and it was not a good idea since we didn’t have reservations anywhere. We ended up eating at the bar of a restaurant.
I do, however, love anything pink and / or red any time of year. Add some hearts and that is just icing on the cake. So while we may not be all into Valentine’s Day, I am more than happy to look the part. And I feel like dressing the part is more than half the fun.
And there are lots of really cute pieces right now that are perfect for Valentine’s day, whether you are celebrating or not. And they go so far beyond that too. You may not want to sport that red and green plaid shirt you bought to be festive for the Christmas season, but pink, red and hearts are forever and any time of year.
These are a few of my favorite pieces that are great for this time of year. And even if red & pink aren’t your thing, I’ve got some ideas!
The heart shirtdress is pretty high up there on my wishlist. It would be adorable now (think layering), but it would also be so cute in the summer with some sandals!
I know it is way too early for sandals (unless you are lucky and live some place warm), but these are special Valentine’s sandals so I wanted to include them now. I love the two tone pinks in them! You could save them and wear them for an upcoming tropical vacation or wait until spring. Or you could just wear them now and hope you don’t get frostbite. They also have an adorable heart flat if you would rather go that route.
If you are headed out for a date for Valentine’s (or a party or whatever), this dress is too cute. I love the color (it also comes in black and white), the ruffle neck and it ties in a bow in the back. If only I had a place to wear this!
And for a few more Valentine’s picks (including one thing I am kind of obsessed with), make sure to sign up for The Monthly Edit, my monthly newsletter. It is going out on Tuesday & will have some winter layering tips, a soup recipe and the first organization challenge!
So how do you feel about Valentine’s Day? Love it? Hate it? Don’t care either way?
