I don’t know how the “Couples” holiday is already upon us again, but, here we are. I told myself the Super Bowl was my last weekend to snack and take part in eating an excess of “junk” but I forgot this precious little day was around the corner! So am I taking part in eating heart-shaped Reese’s? You bet. What is portion control again?
Do I hate Valentine’s Day because I have no sense of self-control with sweets? No- a little,maybe. I hate Valentine’s Day because every clothing store EVERYWHERE is whipping out their red or pink clothes for you to buy for your hot date. COME ON. I know I’m biased because I don’t wear these colors but I reaally don’t like it. I sound like the Grinch when he’s turning Cindy Lou down for Holiday Cheermeister but AHH. (I’ll stop being aggressive in a minute.) There’s nothing original about Valentine’s Day at all but can ya not carry that over to your outfits?! Pretty please? Ok, really though I’m not here to tell you what to do or wear, I’m just being me so sorry to those offended. I’m with you though, you wanna look good, be cute, and or sexy (I like to call it feminine). When I want to feel extra feminine I have a few go-tos. There are a few fabrics of choice and also what you’re showing off that makes something sexy to me. You know how it goes, I’ll show you my Pinterest examples and find something similar and throw the link at you.
One fabric that should be considered for your cute little date night is definitely Silk or Satin. I’m just going to show you what I mean rather than tell you. It says enough on its own, no crazy accessories needed IMO.
This top from Forever 21 is stunning. For those not ok with the open slit I would slide a lace bandeau bra underneath and call it a day. You can find it here.
If that’s not your style these tops from H&M are so classy and so so so gorgeous and definitely feminine.
Another fabric to think about is Lace. We already know lace is hot so I’ll just leave it at that.
When does Zara ever do you wrong? Well, never. The zipper going all the way up the back of this top…uhmm HEY GIRL!
You’d think I work for H&M given how much I praise them but they make it too easy for you. This black top is a simple T-shirt with lace sleeves and oh hey $13! We can deal with that.
If you’re not feeling those fabrics, I love showing off shoulders or just one for that matter. It’s flirty and shows a hint of skin but doesn’t go overboard. Subtle is sexy, again just another opinion of mine.
H&M making life easy AGAIN, they kind of always have what you need. Just throwing it out there, this fine knit sweater is perfection. Super cute, super simple.
As is this fitted off-the-shoulder jersey top. It wouldn’t be as heavy as that sweater and easy to throw together. Just realizing I’m finding a lot of mostly black tops, not intentional sorry ladies!
Going to leave you on a high note because I’m CRAZY about this white woven top from Forever 21. It’s very feminine. Since I’m also on a denim kick right now, what looks better with denim than white? A high-waisted pair like in the photo is perfect to complete your date night outfit. Throw on some heels and you’re ready to text him that you’re ready to go knowing full well you need another 30 minutes. Just me?!
Hopefully this gave you some outfit inspo, No I don’t really hate Valentine’s Day, just not a fan girl of only having two color options, uhh no thanks. 🙂
See you next time
