Pretty in Pink for Valentine's Day

Today Rachelle (of XOXO, Rachelle) and I are going to be sharing two ways to incorporate a little (or in my case, a lot of) pink into Valentine's Day date outfits!

Here's my look:

I love dressing up for holidays. I also love wearing overtly feminine tulle skirts. Fortunately, Valentine’s Day provides me with an opportunity to do both of these things. I’m also lucky to have a hubby who isn’t bothered by me wearing a gigantic, attention grabbing skirt like this. And it definitely grabs attention. At church yesterday, it was complimented about six times. So I’d call it a winner! Whether you’ll be going all out with an outfit like this one, or keeping things more low key, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to wear a little more pink than you otherwise would. Don’t own/don’t care to wear pink? A pretty pink lip would definitely do the trick!


Now onto Rachelle's look:

Valentine’s Day tends to sneak up on me EVERY year!


Not this time.


Since January, I have been brainstorming potential date night outfits for the upcoming holiday. I’ve mentioned in former posts that my husband is really fond of surprising me- but I hate surprises. One of my “gifts” on Valentine’s Day is that I actually let him surprise me. He rather enjoys it because I’m not allowed to complain-- or at least I do my best not to. :)
