The Coziest Casual Valentine's Day Outfit

Someone show me a rule book that says you have to dress up for all the holidays. Gimme a totally cozy and casual Valentine’s Day outfit and I’m a happy gal.

I mean, really – where did we get the idea that all holidays mean fancy ensembles with glitter and matching colors? I broke the mold on Christmas by wearing leopard print with black, and I’m going to switch things up for Valentine’s Day by taking the casual approach. I’m also choosing a sister color of red and pink and wearing burgundy instead. #REBEL. Okay, not really a rebel – I did add in some pink accessories – but I’m just trying to make a point here. Here’s to throwing away the “fashion manual” and just keeping things practical and cute for everyday wear.

Speaking of “everyday” – Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year, which means it’s just another day. You heard me. Most likely, you’ll be spending it like me – working and then maybe going out to dinner (if you’re lucky/that’s what you want to do). This outfit is a way to keep it slightly festive, without going too overboard. It’s also incredibly simple to switch out a few pieces to dress it up, given the opportunity.

Here’s some exciting news: this outfit is incredibly practical.

Maybe that doesn’t seem exciting to you, but to me – that sells me on the look entirely. I love that this v-neck blouse is sleeveless so I can wear it with either a cardigan, leather moto, or denim jacket. I could also wear it alone if the wonky winter weather decides to be a not-so-surprising 65°. If you’re not a heels person, don’t fret: sneakers or flats could work just as well. However, something you must know about this particular pair of heels is that they are delightfully comfortable. Truly, the block heel makes a world of difference, and I love them so much I own them in two different colors! Lastly, I reached for denim pants – sans holes or major distressing. So if you work at an office that’s even slightly more casual than the usual, you’re business-ready in this look.

This outfit is also 100% significant other-approved. My husband loves this blouse and the skinny jeans + heels combo. It’s a winner no matter what your plans entail. If you celebrate Galentine’s Day rather than Valentine’s Day – you could wear this for brunch or drinks with your besties. It’s basically the most practical outfit for any occasion – and super easy to throw together for the upcoming holidays!

    I LOVE casual V-Day outfits! Unless my husband says that I need to dress up and where something fancy, I usually opt for a dressy top and jeans. Love this look!

    I have that same cardi and totally forgot about it! Omg! Time to whip it out before it gets too hot to wear it LOL. I am totally a burgundy girl and would wear this color for Valentine’s Day! I personally think it’s better than a bright red. You look amazing girl, love the entire look! xx

    I personally think Valentine’s Day is the PERFECT holiday to go casual for! After all, you’re celebrating LOVE, and love is not only skin deep! You’re celebrating the fact that you have people in your life who love you for you, not what you wear. My partner and I love having really relaxing Valentine’s Day dates that usually involve a home cooked meal (or take out!) and a movie night on the couch. Perfection!

    I’m surprising my hubby with a cooking class for V-Day so I’ll probably be wearing something similar- cute but casual… minus the heels!

    If I were going out for valentines, I’d totally dress up, but since I’m single and it’s just another day, I’m sure I wont do anything! Your cozy sweater looks perfect to me!
