Valentine’s Day Outfits (casual & dressy!) + Gift Ideas!

It’s almost that day that you either love or hate – Valentine’s Day! I personally LOVE Valentine’s Day, always have, even when I was miserable in life or not doing so hot in the relationship category. šŸ˜ Valentine’s Day can get a bad rap sometimes, I guess because it can be a little mushy gushy (<3) or because people think it’s a holiday made up by retail companies, but I think it’s great. I mean, who doesn’t love LOVE?

What a great excuse for a fun date night in, and you get to wear ALL the pink and red and really focus on what matters in life – the love for those around you. I typically prefer staying in and cooking or getting takeout for Valentine’s Day rather than going out since restaurants are always so crazy and the food was never that good. But I do love to get dressed up too, so I’m not totally sure what we’ll do this year.

I’m really excited to do cute Valentine’s Day things with Thomas too. And we’ll for sure introduce him to the Valentine Man tradition when he’s a little older. (More on that below!)

I’ve got a few ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for her (and him!), plus some cute outfit ideas whether you’re going fancy or more casual. Even if it’s a date by the fire at your house, a cute outfit could be really special.

First up, a fancy Valentine’s night out

If you’re venturing to a restaurant, this is a beautiful outfit. I love this combo because the black is classic and great for any occasion, but the pink earrings add a Valentine’s Day pop that completes the whole look. Ā Another great thing about this outfit is that the pieces can be worn anytime, with different shoes or accessories. You know I prefer timeless pieces that will stay in my wardrobe for a long time! These all fit that bill. And if you need the perfect pink lipstick, First Date or Garden Party are both AMAZING.


Next up: day-date or more casual Valentine’s date

I like this outfit a lot because it’s something I would wear on a normal day if I had fun plans. I love these booties for a little height, and I love the black turtleneck. You likely have something similar in your closet that you could use to complete this outfit. If you want to dress it up even more, swap the turtleneck for a silk camisole.

Lastly: Cozy Valentine’s Day Outfit

No plans but still want to wear something festive? Throw on a colorful sherpa pullover and pink Vejas. I love this look for any winter day.

A few more Valentine’s Day looks

I made all of these Valentine’s day outfit ideas out of things I already had in my closet. If splurging on an outfit isn’t part of the plan this year, I hope these outfits give you some inspiration for looks you may already have at home! The only thing I purchased for these was this 3-pack of heart earrings from Amazon (only $20). They’re perfect for sharing since they come in a set of three, and would make great gifts for daughters or friends.

Valentine’s Day gifts for her

Another thing I love about Valentine’s Day is gift giving! While my love language isn’t gifts (it’s Acts of Service, tied with Quality Time), I DO love finding the perfect gift for someone, where it’s something they really need but wouldn’t buy themselves, or something they don’t need but would really love to have. I shared gift ideas for the guys in your life here!

And here are a few fun gifts for the gals in your life (or you could send this to your SO ;))
