I told you I’d have a more formal Valentine’s Day look up before the big day! Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so if you don’t have your outfit, gifts, and festivities planned, then you are running out of time and better get your sh*t together!!

I’ll be spending the day at work (in some festive outfit, of course!) and then staying in with Tom for a home cooked meal and some snuggling. We honestly eat out SO much here in the city and we know the restaurants are going to be PACKED, so we’re going to cook a meal together instead. In all honesty, this is rarer than a typical date night, so I’m looking forward to it! Follow me on Instagram for a true play by play of the night.

I’ll likely spend Valentine’s Day in a pair of jeans and a cute sweater (like this outfit I shared last week), but if you are headed out for date night this may be a better fit. If you’ve been following for a while, you know I love anything with a bow. Making this dress a perfect addition to my wardrobe.  Actually, after receiving this dress as a gift for Christmas I was kinda sad that I wouldn’t be able to wear it until summer! That is why I just had to find a fix with some layering for Valentine’s Day.

Pink and navy has always been a favorite color combo of mine. I wore it last year for Valentine’s Day, too! It is the perfect way to winterize light pink! All it took was throwing on a chambray button-up and some navy tights and you have a February-appropriate outfit. Another reason why I continue to campaign to make navy a neutral color.


I know, I know, you are definitely SICK of this bag. I’ve featured it here, here, AND here. But, I just can’t get enough. I was searching for the perfect navy bag for such a long time, so now that I have it I can’t put it down. This brings me back to my point earlier, make navy a neutral!

    The bow sets off the dress perfectly. Add the blue shirt underneath helps all set the dress off.
