Hi friends! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and instead of wearing the typical red or pink outfit, I decided to go with an all black look (surprise, surprise!). To me, the color black is so timeless and flattering, which is why it takes up most of my wardrobe. Plus, I hate sticking to whatever everyone else is wearing on any given holiday : )
Valentine’s Day is actually one of my favorite holidays (Fourth of July is my #1 favorite holiday, by the way ; )). I loved it as a kid and continued to love it through my adulthood. I think I just love the idea of spreading love and giving sweet gifts to friends and family. And if you were like me, you grew up bringing Valentine’s Day cards to your whole class in Elementary school (how fun was that?!). If only we could go back to those days… *sigh*
Anyways, I paired this black sequin dress with a great “dress-up” type jacket and a pair of strappy heels. I feel like the jacket almost makes the outfit, you know what I mean? I actually got the jacket a few years back from The Rage, and I’m so glad I did because I can wear it with so many different types of outfits.
Now, lets talk about the dress… I actually purchased this dress a few years back so I do not have a direct link for it but I will find some similar dresses and include them at the end of this post. I feel like sequin anything looks great, don’t you? BUT.. I will admit that wearing sequin is not the most comfortable item of clothing… Plus it is such a challenge when putting it on and taking it off, but as long as it looks good, right?? : )
The shoes I got from Forever 21 and are actually black velvet. I think they look great with this outfit and can go with so many other outfits.
I also paired this outfit with my favorite BaubleBar choker. I love this choker so much, I wear it with so many other outfits. I feel like it almost goes with anything!
Lastly, if you’re also like me and have a birthday coming up in February (yay!), I think this outfit is perfect for wearing to various birthday celebrations! I can almost guarantee that you’ll have the perfect “Birthday Girl Attitude” while wearing it, and everyone will compliment you ; )
Thanks so much for reading and I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day! xoxo
