The Essential Valentine’s Day Outfit

Valentine's Day outfit Thrifted floral dress, beige cardigan, bowler hat, dark lipstick, maroon tights, beige t-strap style high heels

If you’re in search of a Valentine’s Day outfit idea, here’s one to make your heart flutter!

This may sound ridiculous but I’ve been saving this floral dress specifically for Valentine’s Day. I thrifted it last fall and insisted on waiting for it’s inaugural wear.

Maybe it’s a superstition thing but I think the first time you wear an item of clothing kind of sets it up for life. Like, I have certain t-shirts that I can’t imagine as anything but sleepwear, because that’s what I first wore them for. (Even though they’re definitely street clothes)

It’s weird but I just wanted to make sure this dress was connected with good vibes so I saved it until now!

What’s even weirder is I planned out this entire outfit last fall in my head. Everything about it is exactly what I wanted and looks so perfect to me!

Rather than default to all black accessories, I wanted to accent the light colored floral with dark red colors like these maroon tights and retro style bowler hat. Then I continued the sweet color story with neutral t-strap high heels and a matching cardigan.

I would also encourage you to reach outside your normal color comfort zone. Instead of sticking with your tried & true color palette, try something new. You never know what you might come up with!

This outfit is also special because I’m adding it to a link up hosted by Diversity Chic. DC is a group of fashion bloggers from Texas that I admire very much. Every month they tackle new trends and social issues, and this month they’re opening up their group to anyone with a blog!

    I love that you’ve had this outfit planned out since last fall and am so honored that its apart of our first Diversity Chic link up! I love the light and airy look that this entire outfit has. It’s so ethereal in the best way.

    Thank you so much for linking up with us!

    • Thank you, Sevi! Thanks for hosting the link-up. 🙂

  • Eeek Hannah I’m SO happy you linked up with us! Now you just need to come to Dallas and shoot with us one month 🙂 You look amazing, per usual. I love that this outfit is perfect for V Day but 100% fits your personal style too. Matching your tights with the bowler hat is PERFECT and somehow makes the gorgeous floral stand out even more. <3

    • That would be a blast! I’ll be nearby for a wedding in May but not close enough (Buda/Austin area). I’m so glad you like the outfit. Thank you so much for the comment & hosting the link-up! 🙂

  • Ahhh this outfit is so adorable!! Those t-strap shoes— I feel like you’re starring in a mid-century romantic comedy musical. Perfection.
