Introduction to Happy Valentine’s Day Outfits:

In this post, I will show you 3 different Happy Valentine’s Day

Outfit Number One (of the Happy Valetine’s Day Outfits):

Red pants and puffer vest

In this casual Valentine’s Day look, I paired Talbots red jeans with gray suede booties and a black puffer vest. My doctor’s bag is black pebbled leather and my red foulard scarf adds a little accent around my neck inside the white cotton shirt. Red jeans can be worn in quite a few ways. They are cute for all the red, white, and blue holidays, but they can also be worn in the cooler months by pairing them with tan, brown, gray, black booties.

We all know a puffer vest is a great piece in the fall, but I also wear them much of the winter indoors as a cozy layer. Out in California, vests of all kinds are popular, especially in the cool evenings.

Outfit Number Two

This second outfit is a layered one where I took a darling tea-cup print shirt that I got from one of my daughters this past Christmas. I belted it with a long mustard brown belt. I used the long belt so that I could draw the excess length over the back of the belt and then tuck the tail in the loop I had created. The belt serves as a nice waist definition without being as tricky as tucking the shirt.

Many of my readers are reluctant to wear belts as they think it will draw too much attention to their waistline. I believe the opposite is true. If you belt the top loosely, it creates a nice accent and much of the waist area is covered by the third piece which is the cardigan.

I added a long gray cardigan over the gray trousers. I pulled out the burgundy cuffs as a styling trick as this makes the sweater look less overwhelming, and it helps hold the sweater cuffs up. My shoes are a nude D’orsay pump. Nude shoes really look interesting against the gray trousers, don’t you think? I also added a tan Coach doctor’s bag.

Above I am wearing a small burgundy beaded choker with a silver heart charm. This fills in my neckline just a bit and the heart works for the Valentine’s Day theme.

Outfit Number Three: A Fuchsia Sweater, Gray Trousers and Pearls

Isn’t this a cute combination? This pink v-neck sweater has lovely bows at the wrists and I had to wear my favorite pearl choker to add to the festive attire. My necklace is many years old, but I have managed to find a very similar TWO stranded necklace with very similar chunky pearls. I would purchase two sets of the two strands to accomplish this fun look.

Again I wore the same gray trousers and nude pumps. This look could go to a workplace, lunch with a friend, and to a date night dinner as it’s so versatile.
