I know it’s still a few weeks away, but let’s discuss Valentine’s Day outfit ideas!
We usually go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day, but here in the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania, I have to walk a fine line between style and function because it’s cold, yo!
You know me, I’m most comfortable in pants; but it’s fun to wear a dress every once in a while, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to break out a dress. White House Black Market is usually my go-to for dresses, but they don’t have much in red right now. I’m pretty literal when it come to Valentine’s Day. I like the idea of wearing red or pink, but you certainly can’t go wrong with a LBD.
In fact, this Convertible Drawstring Dress that I wore to my husband’s company holiday party is back in stock, and it’s only $98. I would love to get more use out of it, so maybe I’ll wear it for Valentine’s Day.
If it’s super cold that night, I could wear this dress with tights my black wedge boots. It’s a good thing I have that gorgeous silver puffer coat to keep me warm. I’ve been getting some good use out of that this week! It’s been frigid here in Philly.
And how awesome is this fuchsia glitter clutch with a LBD for Valentine’s Day!?!
White House Black Market also has this gorgeous Lace Sheath, but it has a steeper price tag at $180. It would also be stunning with that fuchsia clutch.
This CHAPS Faux Wrap Dress is gorgeous, and just $59 at Kohl’s. Plus, yay for sleeves! The neckline provides a great canvas for a statement necklace.
And how about this Maggy London Illusion Yoke Crepe Sheath Dress?? This is a great look for Valentine’s Day, and it comes in both Regular and Petite sizes. I’d wear it with sheer skin-colored hose and nude pumps and a great pair of dangly earrings.
Of course, I’m always a fan of pants and a cute top. For a more casual venue, this Trouvé Silk Blouse is adorable. I envision it front-tucked into a pair of dark jeans with leopard pumps. You could also wear it with ponte knit pants or even a pencil skirt. If you don’t like the red, it is also available in black, burgundy, grey, ivory, and navy.
That type of look would also work for a Valentine’s Day night in. If you’re staying home and celebrating with your family, you will still want to have a festive outfit, yes??
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year??

Can’t go wrong with LBD for V-DAY!! Have a lovely weekend!
This year, we are going to see a Broadway touring show and we also got a hotel room. I have no idea what I’m wearing yet. Definitely not a dress as it is always a hike from the parking lot to the theatre in bitter cold temperatures. Last Valentine’s Day was so cold, it was unbearable. Love you LBD!
UGGGGHHHH… the one time we went to a Broadway show (December) it was sooo cold I thought I was going to DIE standing out there in line waiting for it to open. DEFINITELY dress warm. No one was dressed up.
I love all your picks! Perfect for Vday!
I’m all for dressing up on Valentine’s Day!
Lovely outfit and inspirations, can’t believe Vday is coming up so soon! Have a great weekend
You look hot in that black dress! We usually have a casual VD, but these are all lovely suggestions! I’ve been following the storm that’s going to hit your area. All I can say is, “hunker down”!
North Ga is forecasted to get 6-8 inches, but where I live they’re saying a trace up to 2 inches.
Stay warm and safe!!
P.S. Your bedroom looks lovely!
The drawstring dress is stunning on you! I can see why you want to wear it again.

Lovely to see that dress again. I’m not a fan of Valentine’s day not least because exactly a month later, it’s my wedding anniversay so I’ll be dressing up for that! Thanks for hosting.
I love that black dress and hope you get to wear it again. The fuchsia clutch is adorable!
I had a gift certificate for Talbot’s and bought this marled cotton sweater in raspberry. I think it will be my V-Day top.
That sweater is perfect for Valentine’s Day! What a pretty color.
What size are you wearing in the black dress?
It’s a small.
