What To Wear: Casual Valentine’s Day

Looking for a more casual idea for what to wear on Valentine’s day?  Stick with the basics then add a pop of color in your statement accessories and be done!  I already showed you a full on Valentine’s day look and an idea for your themed out mani (check it here and here) so how about something a little more casual.

Casual Valentine’s Day Look:

Start with some dark denim then add a black top, some black booties and accessories featuring shades of pink and red.  Get this look with the mark. Get All The Looks Top ($34) then add on the mark. Weave It To Me Necklace ($34), Weave It To Me Earrings ($20), Ringmaster Rings ($18) and finish it off with a cool clutch like this mark. Push The Envelope Bag (was $30 NOW only $19.99) and some super comfy black peeptoe booties, the Avon Modern Peep-Toe Bootie ($44.99).

This is the kind of look that keeps you casual and approachable for whatever your Valentine’s Day brings you, even if that is just running errands and buying yourself a sweet dessert.  Just a little something to theme out your V-day!  You can shop the items to get the look at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  PLUS GET 20% OFF with promo code NYFW offer only valid for a limited time so jump on it!

I showed you an all out red, pink and white look to theme out your Valentine’s Day but today is 2 Valentine’s Day Mani’s styled around 1 mark. Ring Me Up Double Ring!  If going all out for Valentine’s isn’t your gig then try just doing a themed mani and pair it with one killer ring!  Go sweet and spicy all in one look!  Jackie from Living After Midnight went all sparkly with her XO mani while I went floral!

To create my abstract floral nails for Valentine’s Day I used the mark. Nail This Look It Kit ($28).  It contains two mini bottles of lacquer, one light pink (used as my base) and one dark pink (used for details).  The kit also contains one killer black and gold enamel buckle bracelet, which actually latches by the buckles so its adjustable.  Pretty much all you need to create the perfect Valentine’s Day look.

The fun ring and bracelet are the perfect pairing to my super girly mani.  The Ring Me Up Double Ring ($20) is actually more wearable than I initially thought.  Especially for a night out, like Valentine’s Date Night!

To create the floral design on my nails I used the tutorial from LaurenConrad.com for a floral mani.  I only put “leaves” on my left hand because I kinda liked them better without it.  What’s great about the mark. Nailed It mini polishes is the mini brush is perfect for small detailing like triangles and rose blobs.  I did use an old eyeliner brush to do the the swirls in the roses and the heart on my pointer (left hand only).  I think my first attempt at a floral mani was the perfect look for a Valentine’s Day mani to accompany the Ring Me Up Double Ring.  You can get both the ring and the mark.
