Valentine's Day Three Ways

Valentine
Dress: Modcloth Earrings: Betsey Johnson Clutch: Lulu Guinness Shoes: Robert Clergerie Polish: Deborah Lippmann
I must admit, I always do get caught up in the fun of holidays throughout the year, and Valentine's day is no exception. Since it's coming up so soon, I thought I'd put together three Valentine-inspired ensembles to suit a few different possible Valentine's day outings. First up? Formal evening. If you're going to a fancy dinner, party or dance, a long red dress with gold accents would be my pick. And to embrace the holiday to the fullest? You can't go wrong with a selection of love-themed accessories - I especially love the Betsey Johnson earrings that make some adorably cheeky suggestions.

V-Day Coffee Date
Scarf: Comptoir des Cotonniers Dress: Modcloth Earrings: Jennifer Meyer Bag: Coach
Tights: Gerbe Glasses: Derek Cardigan Booties: Seychelles Polish: Essie Sand Tropez
If your ideal Valentine's day involves an afternoon spent sharing a favourite book and a warm cup of coffee with a loved one, I for one love this cozy burgundy turtleneck dress from Modcloth. Paired with tights, booties, a cozy scarf and a touch of Valentine-appropriate heart shaped earrings, it makes for the perfect casual-chic look for a romantic afternoon out.

Or, perhaps you're in the same boat I am for Valentine's day:  spending it solo (or at least, sans beau).  I personally don't plan to moon about wishing for a handsome gentleman to come a-calling. Instead, I plan to hang out with some fellow single ladies for an evening of good chats and definitely a little ice cream. I picked a cat-printed tee, a heart sweater and a pop of festive red for a bag. Best accessory in this ensemble? The aptly named "Single Ladies" polish from Deborah Lippmann.

Will you be celebrating Valentine's day? And what do you plan to wear? Let me know in the comments!

Definitely also in the single boat. Loving all these looks but the last one is my favourite!

Valentine's Day is such a funny holiday - I always get caught up in the excitement {and chocolate!} and all of the pretty things I see leading up to it, but when it comes to the actual day, it usually passes without me really noticing :) My husband works in a restaurant, so he'll be cooking dinner for other people on their dates while I stay home with my favourite blogs and my usual evening glass of sparkling water - maybe I'll put it in a champagne glass for the occasion?
xox,

haha I was planning on having a single drunken valentines day... but then I got asked out. LOL. so unexpected. I think from now on I'm just not going to expect anything anymore.

and yeah online dating is really weird. it's almost like a clearance bin where it attracts you because you think there are so many options, then you pick up each item and carefully examine it and relize it's still marked up way too high :S

We aren't going to be celebrating until the weekend but I am not sure what we are doing. But I am sure my outfit will involve something red!
