Do you do anything for Valentine’s Day? I know a lot of people write it off as a “Hallmark holiday,” but I’ll take any occasion I can to get dolled up and spend solo time with Mr. Magpie. We hardly ever get out just the two of us anymore — in fact, I can’t remember the last time we did something on our own, without minimagpie or friends in tow! (Yikes.) I find that we’re far more likely to get a babysitter and spend evenings out when we have friends around, which — in retrospect — doesn’t seem quite right. So this Valentine’s Day, I’ve already asked our nanny to stay a few hours late and I’m determined to meet up with Mr. Magpie for an old-fashioned date — lipstick, heels, and all. I’d love to wear something pink or red. The chic pea above is just SLAYING it. (I believe she’s wearing Paula Raia.) I’m inclined to wear this dress, but we’ll see if the weather plays along. (The best laid plans…)
Some other Valentine’s-appropriate pieces I’m loving:
+The cutest heart-print skirt, on super sale! You can score an EXTRA 50% off with code SHOPTOIT. OMG.
+Absolutely dying over this well-priced blush dress with its trendy balloon-sleeve. So versatile! I could just as easily doll it up with funky statement shoes for date night as I could pair it with smart flats for work.
+If pink isn’t your palette, how chic is this statement blouse in black and white heart print?!
+I DIE over this Valentino number. Stunning.
+Super pretty winter-appropriate dress in a fetching bubblegum pink.
+Very of-the-moment, but I love this frilly, off-the-shoulder dress with its sporty grosgrain trim. (Bonus: on sale!) Would also be fun for a bachelorette at the beach!
+A fun statement blouse to wear with your best jeans and your favorite heels.
Finally, a few accessories…
+These pommed heels are on serious sale!
+My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BRA is on sale for $23 in a lovely Valentine’s Day hue!
+Oscar earrings on SUPER sale. (Love!)
