Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea

It’s been a while since I have had the chance to do studio photos. ^_^


Ah Valentine’s Day! Whether you are single or taken, this is a day to dress up in something that makes you look and feel amazing. So this Valentine’s Day, make it special. Whether this means you are staying in the night or going out to your favorite restaurant, make an effort to have a good time.  You deserve it! 

The dress I am wearing is Karen Kane’s scalloped lace sheath dress. This dress will hug the curves of your body without feeling heavy. I love the V-neck and the sheer sleeves. The sleeves are quarter lengthened which makes this Karen Kane dress perfect for a winter date night.

The moment I put this on, my boyfriend insisted that I purchase it. So take it from me ladies, if you want to turn heads, this is the dress to rock. Petite ladies don’t need to fret because this is a dress that also come in petite sizes. Keep in mind that this dress also comes in two other colors (in case black is not something you want to wear on Valentine’s Day). When it comes time to wash this piece, be sure to hand wash it under cold water. You don’t want to mess with the exquisite lace on the dress!

I went with a nude pink lipstick (‘Baci‘ by Stila) for this look. But feel free to glide on some red lipstick (I love ‘Beso‘ by Stila and ‘American Doll‘ by Anastasia Beverly Hills). A special night out calls for a unique handbag like this darling cork clutch. Slip into your favorite suede pumps and your Valentine’s Day outfit is complete!

Take my advice and make sure to enjoy your Valentine’s Day. We all deserve  day to spend with the people we love most. After all, it is our friends and family that brings out our best selves. I have also linked some additional Valentine’s Day dress ideas below.
