What to Wear for a Casual Valentine's Day

Does anyone prepare their outfits a month in advance?? Me neither. :) I do like to wear pink and red leading up to Valentine's Day. Maybe that's a teacher thing. My students always liked to wear their Valentine's Day clothes leading up to Valentine's Day (AKA the most insane day of the school year), and they loved it when I wore festive outfits too.

So today, I'm sharing an outfit that could actually be worn any day, but the rose color of the sweater makes it the perfect option for a casual Valentine's Day. And I wanted to go ahead and post about this sweater now because it has sold out at several retailers. It already sold out at Nordstrom and Revolve. However, I found it in stock at Dillard's and Free People. It also comes in gray and red (which is actually more like a burnt orange), if rose is not your thing.


My mom gave me this sweater for Christmas. She also gave it to my mother in law for Christmas. It looks so cute on her! It is a sweater that is perfect for all ages. My mother in law mentioned that she loves the cowl neck because it is so comfortable. It's not one of those necklines that chokes you. It lays so nicely! My favorite part is the length. It's perfect to wear with skinny jeans or leggings, which is always a win in my book!


I paired it with some Spanx faux leather leggings because 1. I love them 2. They are so comfortable while also flattering and 3. They seemed to dress up this look a little more than a regular pair of leggings.


I also threw on these wedges because they seemed to make this look a little dressier too. However, if the snow and frigid temps stick around, I will most definitely be in closed toe shoes. I actually wore it with these Rockstar jeggings and boots while I was in Dothan over Christmas, so here is another way to style this sweater. Thanks to Peyton Marie and Ann Clay for the photo!


I have a dressy Valentine's Day outfit post coming soon and a gift guide too! Parker and I usually don't go too crazy for this holiday, but we always like to do something little to celebrate!

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
