Feel the Love: VDay Must-Haves

This year Keith and I are celebrating our first married (but 12th in all) Valentine’s Day together. We’re not going all out with gifts and flashy items. This year we’re keeping it low-key by doing dinner at one of our favorite local Italian restaurants and by going to see “50 Shades of Grey.” Yes, I know…I’m an English teacher, but we all need some mindless reading now and then, right? So, if you’re in the same crowd as I am and you’re ditching gifts to spend time with the one you love, why not rock a killer ensemble. Here, I’m going to show you my favorite VDay Fashion must-haves (and you can shop my closet if you like them). 


If we’re going out, I’m all about the sweater dress with leggings and boots, OR a cute sweater with dark skinnies and boots. Note, these black boots work with either outfit. Double duty? Love it! I also love adding a little splash of red since it’s Valentine’s Day. Either of these outfits move nicely from night to day, and add an elegant flair. Pair them with a cute purse or wristlet (Rebecca Minkoff has an adorable lust-worthy heart-shaped one), and your outfit is done! Of course, being the nail junkie I am, I’m obsessed with ORLY’s nail lacquer in “After Party.” I love this shade for its cruelty free status, but the color matches either outfit and adds some vampy character to your wardrobe. 

Once we’re home, I’m looking forward to snuggling into some cozy slippers and baggy PJ’s. Preferably something from Keith’s closet (Carhartt hoodies anyone), and relaxing. To be honest, I’m looking forward to the good old-fashioned dinner and a movie. We’re usually so busy that having a true date night is something that passes through our mind, but never really happens. Who cares if a holiday gets us out and gives me a chance to doll up? 

Happy heart day to all! What are you doing this Valentine’s Day? Do you love it? Hate it? Already shopped and planned for it? Let me know!

    This sounds like a pretty cuddly plan for valentines day! I hope you enjoy every second of it, and congrats on 12 years. :O

    I’m not doing anything in particular. It’s just another day for me. But since it IS on a weekend, I can treat myself with a rest day from all forms of work [schoolwork and otherwise]. Self-love is the way to go!
