Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it’s certainly a holiday I never cared for much (well, and Halloween…. I know I know, I’m no fun). However, after I got married, Valentine’s Day became more fun. It is a scheduled day to make sure you’re letting your loved one know you care since so often, we’re running a thousand miles an hour and can forget (especially during the dreary winter months) to show our affection. If you’re looking for something to wear for your upcoming Valentine’s Day plans, I’ve got you covered with this off the shoulder date night look.
Top: Topshop; sold out in light pink, but currently available in black and burgundy. Similar in pink here and here. | Jeans: Lauren Ralph Lauren | Heels: Aldo (currently unavailable); similar here | Clutch: BP, four colors available
Getting the off the shoulder date night look
I happened to be scrolling through Nordstrom a few weeks ago after returning some Christmas gifts and took a total chance on this top. It wasn’t sure it would be flattering on me, but it’s SO cute! It was on major sale when I scooped it up for $25, but I’m glad they still have it in black and burgundy and I linked two extremely similar options if you want a more exact look. I am wearing size 4.
These black skinnies were purchased when visiting friends in Philadelphia last March. I totally packed wrong for the weather (brought a dress) and was freezing my ass off, so we popped into Macy’s on Chestnut St. and I tried on every single pair of black skinny jeans on sale. I believe I got these babies for less than $30 because the sales associate gave me a little extra discount (so sweet)! They’re INSANELY stretchy and I wear them constantly. I have them in a size 4.
For some reason, the Aldo nude heels aren’t on their website anymore, but any nude heel will work. If you live in a colder climate, the black skinnies would also work well with a black bootie in its place.
Shout out to my LUXY HAIR EXTENSIONS for making another appearance in my new style posts! I can’t rave about these enough. They’re holding up so well and definitely make me feel extra sassy. I’m wearing the Ash Blonde set in 260g, and you can get your own set for $5 off using code BRIGHTERDARLING5 at checkout.
