Unlike my New Year’s Eve post, challenging you to ditch the sequin number for another equally festive trend, I am a whole-hearted advocate for the typical outfits that surround one holiday:

Valentine’s Day!

It’s an entire day dedicated to my favorite color combination: pink + red!

Below I’ve picked out three outfits for three types of V-Day plans: a Hot Date, Galentine’s Day, and a night at home practicing some serious #SelfCare.

I understand a lot of people are a little more subdued when it comes to this holiday (or their wardrobe in general), so in addition to my favorite pink + red picks, I’ve also detailed three outfits for the above V-Day plans that are subtle but still allow you to celebrate in a mix of polka dots and red rose floral.

Tag me in your Valentine’s Day outfits on Instagram! I want to see what you come up with.

Outfit Details

Dress: ASOS. Boots: Isabel Marant via The Real Real (previously styled here, here and here). Trench: Shopbop (previously styled here and here). Brooch: ASOS. Pink Stripe Shirt: Thrifted. Sunnies: Elizabeth and James via Rent the Runway.


The Romantic

White + black polka dot and red rose details to show a hint of romance without being a billboard of love.



Hot Date

Polka Dot Dress | Polka Dot Slingback Heels | Rose Beaded Clutch | Rose Drop Earrings | Trench Coat | Rose Pink Nail Polish

Subtle romantic hints with double the polka dot + rose accessories. This look is still celebratory without being too over the top. If you have a fancier date planned, try this embroidered lace rose midi-dress or this sheer polka dot top!




Galentine’s Day

Polka Dot Blazer | Rose Print Lace Cami | Black Skinny Jeans | Polka Dot Crossbody | Red Ankle Strap Heel | Watch with Rose Face

A fun and flirty look to celebrate with your Galentine’s! Feel free to play with these two patterns even more—like with these polka dot cigarette pants or this rose floral jacquard mini-skirt!





Polka Dot Robe | Rose Print Nightie | Rose Print Headphones | Red Nail Polish (my favorite red!) | Polka Dot Warm Socks | Coconut Rose Kit

All that’s missing is takeout, this song, and a bottle of champagne!



The Purist

With a holiday dedicated to my favorite color combination, how can I not celebrate to the fullest?!



Hot Date

Red/Pink Colorblock Strapless Dress | Red Teddy Coat | Pink/Red Stripe Heels | Red Beaded Heart Drop Earrings | Pink Gingham Cherry Crossbody | Red Lipstick (my favorite red!)

Honestly, there were so many great options for this look—it was hard to narrow it down! This look is a whole lotta love, but the defined color blocking makes it easier on the eyes. If you have a fancier evening planned, try this red and pink lace embroidered midi dress, or this color blocked pink chiffon number!




Galentine’s Day

Red Leopard Midi Dress | Pink Feather Heels (previously styled here) | Red Leather Jacket | “BITE ME” Box Clutch | Pink Heart Stud Earrings | “Love Bites” Candy Box

Celebrating femininity for a night out with your girls means red leopard, pink feathers, and a cheeky statement clutch. For those heartbroken comrades, treat them to a bento box of gummy candy filled with “plenty of fish in the sea”!





Red/Pink Stripe Rugby Dress | Pink Slippers | Red/Pink Heart Socks | Red Stripe “LOVE” Eye Mask | Pink Fuzzy Robe (I wear this everyday, my husband can attest!) | Conversation Heart Bath Bombs

Binge You on Netflix, light a few candles, and #treatyoself!
