What To Wear: Valentines Day Night Out

Valentines day is coming up fast, it's in just a little over two weeks. If you haven't done your shopping yet, I have a gift guide for girls here and one for guys here.

Whether or not you have a sweetie, or will be painting the town red with your girls, it is the perfect opportunity to get dressed up. So I've put together my perfect going out valentines outfit to hopefully help inspire you if you're at a loss as to what to wear.

I started with this gorgeous lace black dress from awear.com. It comes with a red belt, but you can easily switch that out for one of your own, since the belts that come with clothing can be a little shoddy. I like this one from The Limited.

For shoes I picked these completely impractical but lovely Chiffon Booties from Chinese Laundry. I adore these and even though I'm terrible in heels I think these shoes need to find a new home in my closet.

For your Mani, I would go with this bubble gum pink Groove Is In The Heart by Deborah Lippmann. Pink looks so good with red and it will definitely pop on your nails. Plus who doesn't love that song?

For Jewelry I'd start with this Be Mine Necklace by Kate Spade (which would also make a super cute present), Love Edge Studs by Marc By Marc Jacobs and a cute cuff bracelet, the one pictured is by Mango but it's out of stock. This one from Brahmin is similar and just as cute.

What are your Valentines plans, are you going out or staying in?
