Valentine’s Day Outfit Part I

Gift? Check.

Daytime activity? Check

Dinner reservation? Check.

Outfit? Ummmmmmmmm…

Valentine’s Day is such a special time. How fun it is to be with someone you care about enjoying an activity you both love doing or even trying something new.

But, as a gal who LOVES fashion and dressing up, Valentine’s Day is a perfect reason to have some fun in my closet.

In honor of Valentine’s day, each week I’ll post an outfit idea to inspire you. Whether you’re dining at a high-end seafood restaurant or casual pizzeria, I’ve got you covered.

When I get dressed, I pinpoint the one item-a skirt, blouse, necklace, shoes, etc.- I want the rest of my outfit to work around. The skirt was definitely that item.

Since it’s so cold here in Chicago, I opted for the geo-print ICB blazer, which can be worn under a winter jacket when in transit to your dinner. Since the blazer is very colorful, I knew I wanted to keep my accessories-bag, shoes, and scarf-a single color. If I had a pair of maroon shoes, I definitely would’ve worn those over the nude. But, my nude heels have a pink hue, so they went nicely with the skirt and scarf. This outfit is perfect for a night at a high-end steakhouse.
