The Fashion Magpie Valentines Day

The Valentine’s Day Edit.

I know Valentine’s Day can be polarizing — I’ve heard the “Hallmark holiday” accusation many times — but I love any occasion to dress up and drink champagne. Below, a few fun ideas for the holiday…

TOP // PANTS (LOOK FOR LESS) // SIGNET RING // GARLAND // VAMPIRE’S WIFE DRESS // STRIPED FURLANES // BEADED HEART EARRINGS // RATTAN HEART BON BON EARRINGS // VALENTINE’S KIT // BOW SWEATER // BOW BUTTON CARDI // HEART CLUTCH // CONTRAST TRIM CARDIGAN // SOUR LIPS // BEAD BRACELET // STRIPED TURTLENECK // PINK DRESS

Not seen above, but additional notes…

+This jumpsuit is WOW!

+Dondolo always has fun finds for occasions, like this dress. Last year, I bought one of their smocked tops in a blue heart print and paired with these earrings.

+I don’t know what it is about blue hearts (ha!), but this year, I am contemplating adding another Julia Amory dress to my collection in this fun D. Portahult-esque print. I love this dress so much. It is in a super-soft, almost brushed (?) cotton, skims the body, and nips in slightly around the waist. My only gripe is that the buttons at the bottom come unfastened easily while walking around. I’ve had other friends report back with the same issue!

+A few other appropriate knits: this La Ligne, this chunky duster, this sweater skirt.

+These $120 flats in the pink!

+Lots of heart necklaces here.

+More hot pink finds here. So love this color ATM.

I’ve had a few inquiries about Galantine’s Day ideas. Aside from a sweet friendship note on a card like this, this, or this, a few ideas…

+Have girlfriends over for a cocktail (may I suggest this cocktail recipe or this one for the occasion? both are perfectly pink!) and throw in these fun stirrers, or these.

+More ideas (including recipes/menu ideas) on entertaining girlfriends here.

+Over the top but how insanely cool and fabulous are these oversized paper peonies?! Like do I need this as “an art installation” in my office?! SO good.

+I love the creative occasion cards at Amy Heitman if you want to send a note to a good girlfriend.

+If you’re after a little gift…

  1. Thank you SO much Jen for this Valentine’s round up! You nailed it as always and again, loving new brands/stores that you find along with unique items. I love to find cute little gifts for girlfriends, I’m thinking of getting my girlfriends a ❤ necklace and of course I want to purchase a cute top/dress for myself to wear.
