I love pink. Love it, love it, love it. Pink was my favorite color growing up and then I went through a few years where I wouldn’t be caught dead saying I liked it. But now I love it again. I consider bright pink to be my signature lip color, light pink to be my go-to nail polish color, and I love sneaking any kind of pink into my black and gray winter wardrobe. Needless to say, Valentine’s Day fashion is super easy for me.
I have a handful of pink dresses in my closet but I was initially a little wary of this one. Something about the fit just seemed a little off. I had taken G shopping with me and when I expressed my concerns he said, “just get it. Wear it with a cardigan, tights, and a belt.” What? That outfit actually sounded really cute! I ended up getting the dress and now 90% of the time I wear it, it’s with a cardigan, tights, and a belt. Sometimes an outfit just works, no matter how many times you’ve worn it the same way.
I love to play up the girliness of this dress with pearls, my charm bracelet, and pink lipstick and nail polish. It is a bright pink fit-and-flare dress with a bow on it after all, why not go all out?
When I was younger, I loved braids. We had a hair stylist who would do our hair after every cut and I always wanted a braided half-up style with lots of curls. I’m so happy that braids are back in a big way and I loved adding braids and curls to this look.
For me, Valentine’s Day fashion is all about pink! I love adding little romantic details like bows, pleats, pearls, braids, and curls. I like to have fun with my outfits and really go along with all of the holiday details. It is a pretty cheesy holiday after all, why not have fun with it?
