I adore your blog and the amazing outfits you create! I am going to dinner (dressy but not formal) this Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend of 2.5 years. For the past 2 years, I’ve worn a black pencil skirt with different tops for this occasion. I’d like to do something different this year, but absolutely LOVE wearing a pencil skirt and heels. I’m 25 years old, 5’8”, size 0-2, blonde with blue eyes and would love your advice on a V-Day outfit. I live in Denver, Colorado and it’s notoriously snowy on Feb 14, but that never stops me from wearing a skirt and heels. I L.O.V.E. J. Crew and Banana Republic (usually too $$ for me, sad) and am open to anything you suggest.Valentine's Day is a great reason to match pink and red together. Any other day of the year makes it is a lot trickier to pull off the color combo without looking too cutesy:
Blazer - $39 is a crazy good price for this luxe velvet blazer. I have to admit...I cracked and bought this for myself last night.
Blouse - In pink with red flowers and a bow - doesn't get better than that! Oh wait, it does: it's also 50% off.
Skirt - A pencil skirt in dark gray (navy or black could work too). I'm assuming April already has one of these leftover from other years.
Shoes - A ridiculous pair of red satin pumps on sale from Nine West.
Earrings - These enamel flowers from Forever 21 are adorable.
A little flowery perfume...some nude fishnet tights...extra rouge...a heavy coat...you're ready for a romantic evening on the town.
