Loving Him is Red

Happy February, Beachesssss!

2017 is already off to a speedy start, and guess what’s right around the corner.. Galentine’s Day! A day for you and all your Gals/Gays. Lol, justkidding.

VALENTINE‘S DAY, SILLY!!

We’re just short of 2 weeks from the most romantic day of the year, and I bet you don’t even have an outfit planned. That’s okay, me either. BUT – Don’t fear, I’m here!

So as a fashion consultant (i’m not really a consultant), I thought to myself. How can I help these beaches plan an outfit if I don’t know what they’re doing.. SOO I picked what I thought were the Top 3 most popular dates, kinda, maybe. Haha, plz let me know if I’m wrong. I don’t really date.

DATE NUMERO UNO

Ice Skating! Omg, how cute?! So obviously, you want to go with something a bit more on the warmer side. Ooo like a sweater! These dates are casual dressy, so a sweater -optional button down underneath, paired with a nice pair of denim or chinos would be a great idea for this kind of setting!

Perhaps something like this:

pima-cotton-cashmere-birdseye-stripe-crew

Paired with a dark denim (for a dressier/date night look), black denim, or even a khaki colored chino. Don’t forget the button down for dimension! A white or chambray shirt would go great with either 3 of the bottoms.

fisherman-cable-crewneck-sweater

A red or pink button down will make this outfit festive! Opt for red pants, if you decide to stick with a tee shirt underneath.

Don’t forget your scarf to stay warm!

DATE NUMERO DOS

Are you looking to keep it more casual? Thinking maybe picnic, favorite museum, stroll through the park? Okay, I totally got you.

A henley would be perfect for these types of situations. I would pair with a fitted medium wash denim. If it’s warmer in your neck of the woods, go with a khaki colored shorts! But remember my rule: See here!

You can even choose to wear a polo shirt! Just NO t-shirts.

DATE NUMERO TRES

Your typical fine dining at the fave restaurant. Probably the most popular date idea. Who doesn’t like to eat though, am I right? Ha!

We’re bringing out the dress shirts (and quite possibly a blazer)

We’re keeping it festive with the pinks and reds. The first shirt is pink and white gingham. Keep it simple with black slacks, for a clean look, and complement with a black dress shoe. Cannot go wrong here. Opt for a black tie, if you’re feeling keen. Shirt two and three have navy color blocks in them. I’m not a fan of blavy (navy + black), so I’m going to tell you that’s a no no. I would stick with navy slacks for these shirts or possibly a light or dark gray pant for the second shirt. If you like color, LIKE MEEEE, you’d throw a red blazer on with the second shirt-gray pant combo. Whew, I swoon thinking about it.

A darker shade of red, or burgundy, could be worn over the pink gingham shirt. Add a black tie with this look to tone down the color palette, or go with a white tie to brighten things up. I mean it is Valentine’s Day. 🙂

Now that you have a few ideas for outfit choices, hopefully I have made your day a little easier. OH NO… wait.. you don’t have a gift!? No worries, my frugal friend Jessica can hook you up with something special over on her blog! Go check out her post for gift inspiration!
