I can’t believe how fast 2022 is flying by already. February, already? I don’t know about you, but I still haven’t quite managed to stop myself from writing “2021” on files and documents.
That being said — Valentine’s Day has crept up on us and is only a week away. If you haven’t snagged a Valentine’s Day gift, now would be a great time to pick one up. This week, you’ll want to pick up your wine, style your bar cart, and find the perfect outfit to celebrate the big day.
Whether you’re heading out for a date or staying in, here are a few Valentine’s Day outfits for every kind of celebration.
4 Lovely Valentine’s Day Outfits for Her
Valentine’s Day Outfit for Her #1: The Dressed Down Dress
Who says you need to wear heels on Valentine’s Day? You can take your favorite dress and dress it down with a pair of sneakers. This would be a fun option for a day date or a Galentine’s Day party. White sneakers go with pretty much everything, and I love these platform sneakers from M.Gemi — they look slightly more sleek and elevated, making them a perfect match for any frocks in your closet.
This dress is part of the holiday Sail to Sable x Style Charade collection, and a few sizes are currently in stock (plus, it’s on sale!) I’m also really digging the latest collection from Crosby by Mollie Burch — there are plenty of pink and red options to choose from, and it’s another great women-owned brand to support!
Valentine’s Day Outfit for Her #2: Keeping Warm With Boots
I love a good midi dress and boot combo. LA is currently having a bit of a heatwave, so I might need to leave my boots at home this year, but most folks living in the Northern Hemisphere will most likely need to layer up for warmth. I love the Analeah Boot by Schutz because it has a slightly western feel, and it’s super sleek and chic!
As for the dress: Reformation is definitely an investment, but I love their pieces because they’re timeless and really don’t go out of style. I always get compliments whenever I wear Ref pieces, and I also feel amazing in their dresses as well. I bought this dress in the fall, but it’s a piece that can work year-round and can be dressed up or down pretty easily!
Valentine’s Day Outfit for Her #3: Keeping Cozy with a Lounge Set
Are you staying in this Valentine’s Day? Honestly, I might do the same this year! After all, it is on a Monday, and it will be the day after the Super Bowl in LA. I picked up this cozy heart lounge set from Lou & Grey last February, and they have a super similar set available for sale this year as well. Lou & Grey lounge sets are super comfortable and of incredible quality — just make sure to wash them on the gentle cycle and let them air dry so they can retain their softness!
Valentine’s Day Outfit for Her #4: Stay in Bed with Festive PJs
I’m not sure why, but my heart-print pajama collection grew over quarantine, and I’m not mad about it! I love the idea of a cute PJ set, and Soma makes some of my favorite pajamas on the planet. Their Cool Nights line is super cozy comfortable and keeps me from getting too hot at night while sleeping. Honestly, I wear these year-round because I think they’re adorable!
