Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so that means it’s time to feel the love by prepping your outfits for date night, Galentine’s Day + more! From chic mini dresses to red heels to heart shaped bags, I rounded up the cutest Valentine’s Day essentials that you’ll love to wear on this special day!
This week has been gloomy in LA, causing me to stay cuddled up in doors and in my comfy clothes while packing up my entire apartment to move this weekend. Moving is beyond stressful, why?Because now I have begun actually sifting through my closet and separating pieces I want to bring, pieces I am going to list on Poshmark (follow my closet + sign up with code ‘MISSYONMADISON‘ for a $5 credit towards your first purchase), + pieces I am going to donate…kinda reminds me of the Sex and The City movie where Carrie is giving up her apartment to move in with Big and her and the girls dance around to Aerosmith while making their Take or Toss piles haha. Basically was me today, minus the girls BUT I am going from my own place to a new place with my boo so I feel Carrie’s struggle with attempting to downsize her wardrobe although I now have my own office with TWO walk in closets :p Every bloggers DREAM ♥
Anyways…after we are all moved in to our new place, I am looking forward to a much needed date night + with LA’s gloomy weather to kick off spring, I wanted to share one of my signature go-to looks for a night out! Whether you are heading to happy hour with friends, dinner with your boo or a late night movie, I LIVE for these Hue Leatherette Leggings because they suck you in, accentuate your curves + match with any top for any occasion.
I seriously LOVE these leggings, I have been posting about them for years (#notsponsored lol) + I never get sick of them, not to mention the quality makes them durable to last for years of wear. I have been wanting to try the whole patent liquid pants trend from this past season, but I always go back to my trustee Hue ones (what can I say, I am a creature of habit hehe :p)
For a night out I pair them with a sheer top like this one + I wear a bralette or bandeau under it to avoid showing too much skin (definitely not risque enough to do the whole ‘free the nipple‘ trend haha). It’s a great way to dress sexy but also look classy and put together if it’s a dinner date etc.
I always wanted a pair of rockstud pumps however I still can’t get myself to splurge on expensive shoes (just bags haha) so these are a look a like version and I found a similar version from Sole Society here.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…once again it’ll be another romantic evening spent with my gal pals…but that doesn’t mean I can’t certainly share some ‘Date Night‘ style (or rather anytime style) here! I’ve been kinda obsessed with ‘retro’ vibes lately, so that means bell bottoms, bell sleeves + a little fringe…
Nothing is quite as effortlessly chic as this white chiffon bell sleeve dress! Dress it up for a night out, or layer a vest + wear ankle boots for a casual ‘anytime‘ look!
Here are a few of my favorites:
Since this is the first of a few Valentine’s Day outfit posts, only suiting my shoes + bag are red…RED h o t! These red fringe sandals (via AMI Clubwear) are perfect for any occasion (work, play, date night, girls night out, etc.) My bag is from Vera Bradley and it is now my go-to bag for all of February<3
