Valentine’s Day Fashion Lookbook

Valentine's Day Fashion Lookbook

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.

I’ve also teamed up with Emily from thecoloradoblonde.com, who’s created the three different hairstyles featured in the lookbook today.

And yes, every one of these outfits was bought or given to me secondhand.

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Today is Martin Luther King Junior day. Lucky students, employees, and city workers got the day off.

By pure luck, my entire family got the day off from work, school, and bible studies. And a follow-up question, bright and sparkly, presented itself: So what are we gonna do?

We’re the Koontzes. We hike, and camp, and go to the movies, and eat junk food, and go thrift shopping.

Challenge: The Floppy Floral Pants

My friend, Jake, is really into fashion. Not so much thrift shopping like me, but fashion nevertheless. Sunday during choir practice, he leaned over and told me how he read my last post on the five dollar bag and was really curious how I would put together outfits, especially with the pants and the “hobo jacket”. He presented it as a dare, or a challenge.

At first I was like, “I’ll show him!” But a challenge it really was.
