10 Feb Valentine’s Day The Casual Way
Love Valentine’s Day, but prefer to spend it at home with the one/s you love? Don’t need to get into date night attire? Here is a casual look for V-day that is still fun!
Now you can’t exactly have that Italian night out in this top, as it may just get stuck in the sauce, but if you are making a meal at home, and aren’t fussing about what might get on your sleeves, just go for it!
These dramatic sleeves were quite trendy last year, and I have a few tops similar to this. They make a statement and are fun to wear. I have another top from a Canadian designer, Joseph Ribkoff I was gifted a few years ago with even more dramatic sleeves.
I wanted to share a look that was romantic, yet casual, and this blouse in a red floral, fit the bill for Valentine’s Day. Since the sleeves are wide, I like to style this blouse with a skinnier jean- my grey jeans from Old Navy. These soft, skinny jeans get a fair amount of wear and are a nice change from blue denim. The top has a smattering of grey in the pattern, and since it is a neutral, works quite well.
I have been wearing my Dolce Vita wedge sneakers often and it adds a bit of spunkiness to this look.
My red Prada bag added more Valentine;s Day love to this outfit as well.
I’m in the process of looking for a pair of prescription sunglasses. There is a Prada pair I am oohing and awwing for! I am wearing some sunnies in the last picture, in a grey tortoise. I am looking for a warm brown tortoise or similar shade, so presently, “just looking.” You may be wondering why I am wearing sunnies, when it is Winter and we just had enough rain to need an Ark!
Any favorite tunes out there when you think of Valentine’s Day? I love the song by Eric Clapton, “Wonderful Tonight.” and of course, the jazz tune , “My Funny Valentine.”
