With Valentine's Day only a week away I thought I would spend this week's fashion posts show-casing two different Valentine Day Outfits. Today's fashion post is a Valentine Outfit for a Casual Date. On Friday I will show you a Valentine Outfit for a dressy date. Then I'll let you try and figure out which outfit I actually wore on Valentine's Day.
This whimsical heart top I purchased for Valentine's Day two seasons ago. The first time I wore it HERE, it was one of the coldest days of the year. I paired it with a jacket and thick scarf. It's a lightweight short sleeve top that I usually wear in summer. If you'd like to see a summer look, see this post HERE.
Because it's both light weight and has short sleeves, if I want to wear it in the winter I have to wear a shirt or cardigan over it. I decided to try it this year with a chambray shirt, dark blue denim, dark brown boots, a blue neck tie, and my burgundy bag for a bit of color.
I'm so happy thin neck ties are in style this year, aren't you? I love scarves for they hide my aging neck and keep me warm, but I really don't like them if they are overly thick and bulky....I feel like I'm suffocating! Don't even get me started on what I think of those crazy, bulky blanket scarves. 😄
Even though this top is no longer available, you could create a similar look with any heart print top or Valentine graphic tee (see my options below)!
I was torn between wearing sneakers with this look or boots. I know sneakers would have looked better, but it's still too cold here in Wisconsin for sneakers and bare ankles.
And if you're wondering what the big smile is about in this next picture it's because I'm looking at my sweet kitten Jackson. I was posing right in front of our back door so I could run in and out of the house quickly as it was freezing as usual. Jackson was staring at me through the door watching me pose. He wanted to come out with us so badly, but I love him too much to let him out. We have way too many feral cats and other wild animals in our yard. I don't want him to get hurt.
This is a cute, casual Valentine outfit if you have a very laid back date. And if it's warm enough where you live already, you could probably skip the chambray shirt!
Here are some other fun heart shirts I found on the web!
And if extra warmth is what you crave, I love this heart sweater from Macy's!

I love the little hearts. They are so flirty and fun!ReplyDelete
The t-shirt looks so cute paired with the chambray shirt. I think the boots look perfect with the outfit!ReplyDelete
Sorry poor Jackson cannot go out much, but it's understandable. We caved in and started letting our cats out when they were a little older (they kept meowing non-stop at the back door), they are mostly in the backyard and neighbor's yard but sometimes wander off too and it drives me crazy when they aren't home when it's getting dark. Luckily I only have to deal with it occasionally in the warmer months and not during winter.
Thanks Elli! I blame my husband for Jackson wanting to go outside, because he had no interest in the outside world till my husband introduced him to it. I'm just so scared I'll lose him!Delete
So easy and so pretty! Thanks for linking up, xoReplyDelete
Thanks Patti! You're Welcome!Delete
I love V-Day shirts in non-traditional colors. This blue version is so pretty and I love the neck-tie! I can't wait to see your dressy version now. We are going out for V-Day this weekend and I need to figure out what I'm going to wear... I could probably go either way with the restaurant we are going to.ReplyDelete
Thanks Carrie! Yes, I love that the heart print is in blue. I don't think I'd like it if it were red. Happy Valentine's Day!Delete
Loving the super cute T Amy. You look like you're ready for Valentine's Day!!!ReplyDelete
What an unexpected shirt, Amy!! I love that it's in the blue scheme and not the red & pink that you always see!!ReplyDelete
That wonderful smile shows how much you love your kitty! Aren't they the greatest??
Thanks Jodie! I thought the same about my smile....it really shows how much I love my kitty!Delete
So cute, Amy, and you never look cold! I must admit I am wearing scarves each day, but not as restrained as your lovely light scarf even though we don't have the cold you have, mine are thick and fleecy and sometimes furry! I'm a bit of a wuss!ReplyDelete
We're going out for a belated Valentine meal on 16th as we feel a bit uncomfortable with the rows of candle-lit, single-rosed tables for two on Valentine's Day. Hubby's booked a posh restaurant so I'm eager to check out your next outfit, for ideas.
Thanks so much!Delete
