Valentine’s Day is a week away so of course I am thinking what am I going to wear?! Although I would love to buy something new, I decided to go to my closet instead of the store. Turns out I have quite a few things I can wear! V-day is on a Tuesday this year so I will need something to be festive at work, yet still office appropriate. From the selection I found in my closet, it turns out I have a thing for pastels which is totally great because I just LOVE blush in all shades. If you are looking to buy a top for Valentine’s Day I highly recommend a pastel shade of pink or purple, so a blush, lavender, or lilac. The reason for this recommendation is that these colors are much easier to wear again and mix and match than a hard pink/fuchsia, red, or purple. Those will stand out more and if you’re like me you avoid outfit repeating so these colors will end up in your closet not worn quite often.
These four tops may all be simple in terms of color, they are all solids however, they each have their own unique details. The far left has the pockets and buttons, the second has flutter sleeves, the third has ruffle sleeves, and the fourth on the far right has cold shoulder cutouts (not to mention- its sparkly!). All four can be worn to the office with various slacks, skirts, and/or blazers. All four can also be worn out afterwards. Trade out the slacks for jeans (dark blue denim or black) and add heels or boots/booties and you are set for a low key Valentine’s date. Of course you can dress them up more tucked into a skirt with heels for a nicer dinner. Whichever way, there are so many options!
