Why are the V-day style sections all lingerie and evening gowns? I’m not going to a ball any time soon (boo) and I don’t take lingerie pics, although I love to follow Georgina Horne (FullerFigureFullerBust) and the like and read reviews! Here is a collection of my casual to low key glam romantic Valentine’s looks! No matter what your plans, I promise you’ll find something to easily adapt, probably with pieces you already own!
Keepin it Casual
Not feeling red, pink and frilly today? Opt for a fun vintage piece with a pop of ruby red.
Or channel an iconic female siren who makes just makes you feel sexy! Its all about the silhouette… an off-shoulder top and flared skirt are instantly coy!
You can never go wrong in playful overalls with a polished top underneath. I adore the tiny heart print on this Lindy Bop top!
Pin Up Pretty
I’m forever inspired by the figure-flattering styles of the 1950’s… what better time of year to throw it back to a time of crinolines and cinched waists?
Check out Kate Hooray Osmond’s magic exhibit and lots more at the Myrtle Beach Art Museum. (above)
Gone with the Glam
Pull out the cocktail clutch, and slap on some red lipstick.
The quickest way to get glam is to change up your usual make-up routine. Add more liner, use different colors (the ones in your pallette that look brand new) and blend blend blend.
As I’ve said before, black tights are a super easy way to up the glam factor, and to hide winter white legs!
Keep it super simple in an LBD – go for a kitschy twist on the basic like this Eiffel Tower print!
Then accessorize with a red lip, statement necklace or earrings (or hair if you’re feeling extra spicy!) and super high heels
No matter what you wear, or where you go with whom, I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re single, dating, in a relationship, married, or married with kids; each time in your life will be memorable in its own way so don’t waste it fretting that you’re not at a different stage in life. Just enjoy that YOU ARE LOVED.
