What to Wear: Valentine’s Day

What to Wear: Valentine’s Day

Whether you love Valentine’s Day or hate it, you can still dress up on February 14th in something fun. I’ve put together two outfits: one for the classic romantic and the other for someone with a rebellious edge. Which outfit is more your style?

Outfit No. 1: The Romantic

Dress – A pretty dress in soft petal pink with a classic pleat in the front. On sale from Club Monaco for $140. 
Coat – A Calvin Klein wrap coat in dark red, on sale for $170. 
Earrings – Tiny rose gold hearts from Etsy for $30. 
BeltLeather and metal belt with a modern twist from Club Monaco for $70. 
ShoesGold pumps with a lady-like heel for $50. 
Outfit No. 2: The Rebel
Coat – I love this pink boucle coat from Zara for $190.
Shirt – Forever 21 lists this $15  “Je T’aime” shirt as sleepware…which seems somehow appropriate for our rebel outfit. 
PantsEaton trousers from J. Crew in black, on sale for $118.
Earrings – $4 black heart studs from Forever 21. 
PurseStudded cross-body bag for $125 from Bloomingdales. 
ShoesKitten heels in gunmetal silver for $97 from Kenneth Cole.

    How about – what to wear to host a Valentine's dinner at home with friends? As a seasoned hostess, I'm sure you have some go-to items!

    Also happy to help with this, Sarah. What kind of guy are you looking for?

    Well he needs to have a job, likes to have fun, has some fun friends, active, likes wine, and is ok with my qwirkiness. Handy around the house, maybe I'd run into him at Home Depot picking up something for the backyard or something. What a great question for me to think about.

    Small dinner on the 14th, with one other couple, and dogs. Nothing too fancy, but fun. Dinner will be comfort-esque and followed by many rounds of Cards Against Humanity. 🙂

    Love the rebellious outfit, how about one for a V-day concert at the SF jazz center? Show will probably end late and we will end up getting Thai food around the corner as all of Hayes Valley will be booked up. Would love your suggestions!

    Happy to help, Anne! You might also catch a bite to eat after at the Arlequin Cafe (next to Absinth). It's got a cute garden in the back.
