Happy Valentine’s Day! This is one of my favorite days of the year because I just love showing the people I care about most how much I love them! Daniel and I are celebrating tonight by making a dinner together at home and just having a relaxing night, but we are planning on going out this weekend (I’m going to wear this!). But I’ve had it planned to share this red striped top today since I got in the mail a few weeks ago because I thought it was the perfectly festive for the occasion!
If you’ve been following along for no time at all, I’m sure you are already aware that I’m a huge closet basics girl. Classic cuts and denim are my go-to’s, so when I saw this shirt I knew that I had to have it. The fit is just the right amount of oversized for a classic shirt, and the fact that it can be worn casually with a pair of skinny jeans like I did here or dressed up for work makes it extremely versatile. And for under $50, you better just grab it in a few different colors/patterns…haha! I love wearing a button-up like this over my bathing suit with cutoff shorts in the Summer, so I know I will get a ton of use out of them. And it’s called the “perfect shirt” for a reason you guys…I could gush and gush, but it really is perfect!
To make it super Valentine’s Day appropriate, I wore my red tassel earrings and a red lip for an extra pop of color! This is my all-time favorite red lipstick. It is the perfect shade to make your teeth appear whiter and stays put all day (ps: I line my lips with this lipliner first in the shade “cherry”). And I showed you guys this phone case on Instagram a few weeks ago when I got it. I’ve loved having it because it’s just so cheery, and I don’t see myself taking it off just because Valentine’s Day is over!
Lastly, these white loafers are my current favorite pair of shoes. I refer to them as “chic grandma” because that’s totally the description they fit. They are going to be perfect to wear all Spring and Summer long! And they’re like 1/7 of the price of the Gucci pair they look identical to!
Hope you have a super fun Valentine’s Day! If you need any last-minute ideas of what to do (no matter what your relationship status is!), check out this post. And if you need some outfit inspiration, be sure to check out this post!
