Can you believe it’s Valentine’s Day? Holy smokes! Where has the time gone? It literally feels like Christmas was a week ago.
Our New Year has been pretty amazing so far (but busy, for sure!). Work’s been a bit crazy (hence the two week hiatus! sorry guys!) plus I’ve been on two trips already – one to McCall, ID for a fun weekend trip then San Francisco for a work trip. On top of all of this, my bestie had her baby – Nixon James – you can find pics on my Instagram @lauren_husum 😉 Plus, my other bestie got ENGAGED! And btw – this all happened in the same weekend. Talk about happiness overload for sure. It’s safe to say that 2017 is starting off on the right foot!
It feels like Valentine’s Day just snuck right up on us. But I have to be honest, I’m kind of excited that its on a Tuesday this year. I love middle of the week date nights – it breaks up the week! We’re planning on grilling some steaks and veggies and having a fun date night in.
Whether you’re having a girls night with your girls or a date night with your man or gal, and have no idea what to wear – I’ve got you covered. You don’t even need to buy a new outfit. Since it’s tonight, it can be hard to run home and pull of a full outfit change before your V-Day dinner. So I’ve put together an outfit that can easily transition from a work day to your fun date night/girls night out.
Here is how I’ve paired everything together – first, I started with pink. I mean, it’s Valentine’s Day. Your either wearing pink or red (at least, I hope!). Grab a hot pink or red sweater you have in your closet. Second, I grab a pair of my skinnies and pair my sweater with them. Then I grab my favorite flats – Valentino’s (dupes here!). This way, you’re comfortable walking around the office and out for the evening. If you have time to run home, there are two items I’d exchange from your work day outfit (that you may not take to work!) – a fun handbag and coat.
My Saint Laurent goes with everything so grab a bag that isn’t too big or too small but can be worn to the office and then out for dinner. Now, if you’re in the market for a new handbag – here is a list of bags under $200 that may come in handy in case you go shopping with your Valentine tonight. Lastly, I pick my favorite jacket – the Burberry (here is a dupe!). This coat has seriously been my all time favorite purchase of 2017 so far. I have worn it almost every single day since I bought it. It’s comfortable, easy to layer in, warm, and dressy – perfect for work and perfect for a date night! Now, I’m date night ready!
I hope this outfit is simple, cute, and easy for you to put together for your Valentine’s Day evening tonight!
Let me know what you end of wearing!
