for a staying-in kind of Valentine's
Casual Valentine's is my favorite way to spend the night. I love eating at home whether it be takeout or cooked by Andrew himself, which by the way, he makes a pretty mean braised beef and then relaxing after dinner with a movie and some snacks. It's by far the most comfortable and the most fun way to spend the night. But choosing to stay in on Valentine's doesn't mean you have to wear "at-home" clothes. This casual festive look is my favorite because it's so girly, full of hearts, but lounges just as well, if not better, than your pajamas.
Start with your favorite heart sweater there are a lot of great ones out there this season, like this one or festively colored sweater. If your humble abode is on the chillier side like mine, there's nothing wrong with tangling yourself in a soft, fluffy scarf.
Pull on a pair of sheer black tights and finish off with a loose pink skirt. Now trust me, I'm definitely a leggings or sweats type of girl when it comes to lounging but I've recently discovered the comfort that is a loose skirt and sheer tights I'm emphasizing sheer here, opaque tights just don't cut the comfort factor. It's amazing, it seriously feels like you're wearing nothing. I've gotten so comfortable in the skirt/sheer tights getup that I've been living in those two items for the past week as soon as I get home from work that is. Try it, you might find that you'll never go back to leggings, or sweats - it's that good.
If you're going out earlier in the day, add some girly rings and a light pink or cream bag.
Floral oxfords, of course.
Cozy, cute, and comfortable. My kind of Valentine's.
Now all I have to do is wait for my Valentine to show up.
