Last year Adam and I were traveling on Valentine’s Day, so we had to celebrate a few days later. We quickly realized that’s the way to celebrate Valentine’s Day because you get great deals on all the flowers, candy, cards, and gifts! Plus, restaurants aren’t nearly as crowded since all the happy couples tend to go out the day of. So, this past weekend we had our Valentine’s date night. I was so excited because I’ve been saving this outfit for our dinner date. Naturally as soon as I bought this skirt I thought of Valentine’s day because of its beautiful berry color. I wore it for Christmas Eve too with a black top and it looked just as beautiful! I’ve been wanting a fluffy tulle skirt for soooo long now. They’re so girly and fun! I’ve seen quite a few girls dress them down with a graphic tee and some sneakers, but I’m not quite sure I could pull that off. When I wear it I feel so fancy, though, so I tend to gravitate toward a pair of heels anyway. Funny enough, I felt pretty “extra” because I ended up wearing it to a sports bar at one point. I was joking with Mandi that if wearing a glorified tutu to a sports bar didn’t describe me perfectly, I don’t know what would. I like to keep it casually classy and chic. 😉

How was your Valentine’s day? Or did you celebrate Galentine’s with your girlfriends? Either way, I hope it was great!

Layered Dress

Dress: H&M (similar); Denim Jacket: Banana Republic (similar); Booties: Old Navy (similar); Necklace: Charming Charlie (similar); Purse: Lauren Ralph LaurenBracelets: Wet Seal (similar) and Alex + Ani; Sunglasses: Target

Even though I love the look of booties with dresses, this was actually the first time I tried my hand at this trend. I received quite a few compliments on it, so you can bet I’ll be pairing them with dresses more often. You probably recognize this dress from this post. I told you I’d be transitioning it into the fall! This outfit would be great for a day out with the girls or brunch with your man. Heck, I even ran a couple errands in this outfit when I wore it. These booties are comfortable enough for some walking, and who doesn’t love a comfy dress to just throw on and go? The dress I linked above is the same exact dress, but it’s not available in the olive color anymore. I’d recommend it anyway because it is so, so, so comfortable! Anyway, hope you have a great weekend. Happy Friday!

This outfit is actually a bit of a throwback. I posted a picture of it on my Instagram a few months ago, but I never did a blog post on it. I wore this casual outfit to a fun dinner with my parents at a sports grill. You guys know I love my Converse sneakers, so naturally I paired them with this laid back outfit. I also paired this outfit with one of my favorite up-do’s from this post. You may recognize this shirt from an outfit I wore three (what the heck?!) years ago. Hope you all have a great weekend!
