Casual Valentine’s Day Look! ♥

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m writing about the ever-so-popular holiday: Valentine’s Day! It’s a special holiday for loved ones, so it’s nice to dress up. But, what about casual dates? Well, I have just the outfit and beauty tips for you! They’re romantic and casual at the same time! Let’s get started:

This crochet dress is perfect paired with a denim jacket, laceless oxfords, and a pop of red (bag)! It’s romantic enough to set the vibe of the look. Nude shoes go very well with this type of look, because they don’t detract from the outfit. A pop of color creates a uniqueness that can’t be beat!

Here is the outfit:






OUTFIT DETAILS: Dress: American Eagle, Jacket: American Eagle, Bag: Juicy Couture, Flats: Levity

Beauty tips:

Curly/curled hair is great on an occation like this! It adds to the romantic vibe that this look has. Shimmery eye makeup and blush are also good factors to add. A pink blush will give your face a flushed effect which is super cute! Pink lipstick or gloss and sky-high mascara will finish off your look beautifully!

Here are the photos:





Face: Revlon ColorStay Foundation, Lancôme Dual Finish powder, GloMinerals blush, Urban Decay De-slick Setting Spray

Eyes: Stila eyeshadow pallet, YSL mascara

Lips: Lancôme Color Design Lipstick

Thank you for reading, fashionistas! I hope you enjoyed my post and have a very happy and romantic Valentine’s Day! 🙂

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
