What to Wear for Valentine's Day - Casual and Dressy Looks

Valentine's Day can be a polarizing holiday, yet I fall somewhere in the middle. I don't want any over-the-top romantic gestures, and yet I have fun with all the Hallmark card elements, like the candy and heart-shaped everything. Maybe it's my current life season, but I have more fun making Valentine's Day special for my kids than anything else.

Although my plans for Valentine's Day involve feeding the kids heart-shaped pizza and then dinner in with Aaron after they go to bed, I still have fun thinking about what to wear. A recent shopping trip to Loft proved that I can't resist a heart print and I came home with it on both a top and a skirt.

Even if you don't have any heart-printed clothing in your closet, I think both of these looks are still Valentine's Day friendly, and of course can go beyond that.

What are you wearing for Valentine's Day?

This is what I plan to wear to work on Valentine's Day. To me it's casual, yet festive with the hearts and pink. I love that the print is black and white--despite the Valentine's Day feels it has right now, I know that I'll still be wearing this all spring.

I wore this to a work event a couple of weeks ago, but I also think it would be a great date night look. I was on the fence about midi-length skirts, but I love this one, especially with boots.
