Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, I was a third-grade teacher. I think being a teacher brought out the holiday-dressing-love inside me! haha! What I mean is...as a teacher I'd for sure be sporting black/orange the whole week of Halloween. The kiddos loved it and it was just fun! So, even though I'm not teaching anymore, I still find myself planning the red, white, and blue outfits a couple weeks before the 4th! Or in this case, I start thinking about what me OR my kiddos will be wearing the week of Valentine's Day. (I know it sounds ridiculous, but just go with it...please. :) Haha!) I love searching Pinterest for some great holiday inspirations!! Here are my Top Three casual Valentine's Day looks...
Love this understated heart scarf with the chambray shirt, leggings, and white tee. Super casual...but oh so cute!!
I found a couple options for this...
Chambray Shirt: Loft here.
White Tee: I've said this before, but I'm super long-waisted. Any shirt that is "long" on an average size person is probably too short on me. So, I've discovered buying plain tees or tanks (to wear under things) in the maternity section here. They aren't bigger around the stomach. They don't have ruching. (The gathering on the sides.) If you're long-waisted, try one!
Leggings: Nordstrom here.
Boots: SALE ALERT!!! I bought these boots in the fall and they are now 60% off!!! Under $60 for a GREAT pair of boots! If you're needing some, check these out!
Scarf: I searched and searched for a heart scarf and only found one. Super cute for $165! What? So...here are a couple floral, pink, or red options.
This one is a little more..."Happy Valentine's Day", but I think it'd be adorable!
Coat: Super cute purple one here and it's 50% off! Red toggled option and on sale. And...dark red option here and on sale too!!
Valentine Shirt: Red option. Black option. These are shirts from Target. Super fun for a couple days to celebrate, but I wouldn't spend a lot of money on a shirt like this...Target for the win!
Skinny Jeans: Nordstrom here.
Love the pants/grey combo!! The heart earrings would be a little much for me, but the pants/shirt combo I LOVE!
Grey Shirt: Gap option here.
Outfit #4 (One dressy option)
I wish I had some where fancy to go to wear this outfit! Love the peplum top with the trouser pants!
Trouser Pants: Loft here.
Hope you guys were a little inspired today! Happy Tuesday!
