Valentine’s sparks an array of creativity in girls’ clothing, no matter what kind of day their guy has planned. We want to look cute and feel cute and show we cared to make ourselves extra pretty for that special someone.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on date ideas. From these have birthed three different outfit choices; a casual look with a Valentine flair, a cute and flirty look perfect for a picnic or movie, and a romantic date night look.
And yes, every one of these outfits was bought or given to me secondhand.
This outfit was created with TV watching in mind.
Comfortable blue jeans and a soft rose print top make up this look.
Finished with a romantic half-up half-down braid, and you’ll feel like a cute valentine, but with comfier shoes.
The essence of this outfit is in the red top and heart-print skirt.
Tiny details like a thin statement belt make a world of difference.
Matching the belt to the shoes ties it all together.
You can never go wrong with a little black dress and red lipstick. I barely started wearing red lipstick last Christmas, but I am a fan.
The heart tip nails go perfectly with this classy look. They’re a great twist on the typical red nail.
I bought these strappy heels because they reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. And every girl knows: if it reminds you of Audrey Hepburn, you must buy it.
I chose an open shoe to show more skin, giving the appearance of a longer leg, which completed the look.
A special thank you to Katelin Ann Photography for helping me make my photos that much more professional (and for not being afraid to get on your hands and knees in the grass or stand outside in the freezing cold with me).
Each of these outfits are easily created with pieces you already have in your closet. I hope I’ve inspired you, and thanks for reading!
