Be My Valentine: Valentine’s Day Outfit Inspirations

“All you need is love. Love is all you need.” – The Beatles 

If you’re anything like me, you love to make holidays a little more special by getting dolled up in an ensemble that not only makes you feel great, but plays tribute to the holiday…. If you’re also like me, you leave this to last minute every year!

Fortunately, I got my act together this year and have created a few vintage inspired looks that will make you look as sweet as the chocolates you’re going to receive. All style boards were created using Polyvore and can be found here.


Look number one leaves you cute as can be in a delightful scarlet dress. I used quirky accessories to add an air of whimsy and fun to the outfit that will no doubt compliment whatever activities you get up to this valentine’s day!
Dress: Modcloth | Faux Fur Bolero: Dorothy Perkins | Heart Brooch: J.C. Penney | Lip Clutch: Nordstrom | Shoes: Hey Fair

Look number two is perfect for a simple day of running errands or for taking a romantic stroll under a snowy sky. This look is simple to create as the main focus is on the dress coat with a red hat and scarf for an added bit of drama. A perfect look for those who shy away from a lot of colour but still want to be festive on valentine’s day. 
Coat: Violent Delights | Scarf: Juicy Couture, Accessorize (similar) | Hat: House of Fraser, Nordstrom (similar) | Lipstick: Elizabeth Arden  | Earrings: Target, Blue Nile (similar) | Tights: Daily Look | Bag: La Garconne | Boots: Etsy, Spicy Styles (similar)
Finally, look number three brings all the drama necessary to spice up the office this valentine’s day. Who said red was a must have for valentine’s day? Keep everything simple with a classic pencil skirt and gorgeous top accented only with a gorgeous peter pan collar necklace. If you’re feeling daring, use red as a pop of colour with your shoes and lipstick in order to keep everything the ensemble streamlined and looking fresh. 
Coat: The Corner | Top: Tessabit | Skirt: Modcloth | Tights: Modcloth | Lipstick: Net-A-Porter | Necklace: Bloomingdales | Bag: ASOS | Boots: Nordstrom
Hope you’re feeling inspired and ready to take on valentine’s day! I know I am. 
Until next time,
