Here it is, the obligatory Valentine's day look. I'm a week early, but I wanted to get this out there in case anyone needs an outfit idea. The great thing about this one though is that it can be worn year-round. It's only a slight nod to the holiday. In the past I've gone all out with the pink and red, but now that I'm getting older, I think subtlety is better, don't you? Instead of bright red, how about burgundy? And in place of a vibrant pink, how about lilac or blush?

I am incredibly lucky to have so much love in my life. Not because they love me, but because I love them. On days where I feel like I'm spinning out, I try to pause and remember something about each of the special people I know. It could be a song that reminds me of that person, or a memory we created together. I've never been afraid of telling people how much they mean to me. Life is too short for that! So whether you're celebrating V-Day with your significant other, friends, or even alone, don't forget to reflect on the good in your life.


  1. This is such a pretty and girly look, love this color combo for Valentine's day.


  2. This is such a pretty, classic date night look! And burgundy and blush are one of my fave combos. I think we need to work on making burgundy more accepted as a a year-round color. Those nude pumps are great too...that's a piece I still don't own but wish I did!

  3. your outfit is classic and beautiful, on point like always.
    If it wasn't for blogs I would forget about Valentine's Day, hehe. We have our dating anniversary and then my birthdar right around the same time so we get overloaded with dates to remember

  4. Your obligatory outfit is better than my non-existent outfit that I have right now! That skirt is super chic and ultra flattering on you so rock this "obligatory" outfit.
