I hope you had an absolutely lovely Valentine’s Day, I definitely did. I actually wrote about it on my other blog if you are interested, where I talk about why I love Valentine’s so much, even though I’ve been boyfriendless on V-Day for the past 8 years. One of the reasons I do is because Valentine’s gives me a great excuse to dress up a little more than I normally do, and that is the outfit I am bringing you!
Fuchsia lace dress: Daisy Exchange, $8.50
Black leggings: Target, $3
Boot socks: Kohl’s, Christmas gift ($6)
Caramel braided belt: local thrift store, $1.80
Cognac boots: Kohl’s, Christmas gift
Gold heart necklace: Christmas gift
Outfit total: $19.30*
*Again, I did terrible, and I forgot to take a picture with my alternative cheap boots, but here’s a picture of them by themselves, they really are very similar to the ones I have on in the picture:
Tall cognac boots: local thrift store, $4
Combined with rest of outfit: $23.30
I wish I hadn’t had to wear the leggings, but it was pretty cold on Valentine’s Day in Oklahoma, so sometimes one must be more sensible than fashionable. I adore this dress though, it fit me perfectly and I loved the lace because I thought it made it a little more dressy. I also don’t really have any other clothes in that color so it was nice to add such a bright, pretty color to my wardrobe. My trusty belt and necklace make their return in this outfit, and the boots and boot socks helped keep my feet warm on a chilly day.
I got up extra early before class on Valentine’s so I could curl my hair with a curling iron (a never before tried feat, so be impressed). I was amazed at how well it came out, it looked kind of 20s and I loved it. Unfortunately, by the time this picture was taken in the evening, the curls had mostly fallen out. My hair hates curls, much to my intense frustration. So anyway, this was my Valentine’s outfit, I felt lovely in it and I hope you like it as well! And I promise, my next outfit won’t have boots, boot socks, or leggings in it!
PS On a great suggestion from one of my readers, I’m hoping you will reply to my outfit post with whatever you wore on Valentine’s Day, or just any outfit you really love, that you think is a great bargain! I would appreciate it so much, and I’d love to hear from you guys in the comments!
