What to Wear: Three Looks for Valentine's Day

{I was going to title this post "What to Wear: Valentine's Day Three Ways," but that's a story for another day.}

Let's be real here. After all of the love and romance and pomp and circumstance, Valentine's Day is all about the outfit. What you wear on the most romantic day of the year really communicates how you feel about it. In love? Wrap yourself in shades of red and layers of silk, satin, and tulle (or a black-and-white floral print in this case). Not sure about your date? Get edgy and show him who's boss. Flying solo? Keep it low-key and semi-casual to kick it with your girls. 

During a recent shopping spree I came across a cream colored asymmetrical peplum top with gold studded sleeves from H&M. I usually shy away from peplum hems due to my long torso and wider hips, but this one lied flat against my body and whittled my waist. Check out how I styled it to achieve the three distinct looks that I mentioned above. What will you be wearing tomorrow night?

    1. I love that floral print (I'm wearing the tank to work today!) and bought every piece with it, including the dress. It fit so great. PJs and a glass of wine sounds perfect!

    1. Believe it! I think about a month ago...I don't think they're online anymore, but I bought them from the Topanga store.

  3. I would absolutely be outfit number 1. I actually have several skirts similar to that one. Can't believe it can be found at Target!
