Valentine’s Outfit Idea That’s Not A Dress

Valentine's Outfit That's Not A Dress

Valentine’s Outfit That’s Not A Dress

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday.  So if you have plans on the actual day, then most likely you’ll be going to work first, so a date night dress probably isn’t the best option on a cold February day.  For a Valentine’s Day outfit that’s not a dress, try a pair of statement pants!  I’m personally loving the Avon Ashley Wide Leg Pant.

These wide leg pinstripe pants are kinda perfect for a date night.  They’re a little take notice, flatter the figure and a lot of comfortable.  You can easily style them for work with a simple white turtleneck (Avon Sloan Turtleneck in White).  If you wanted something a little more for date night try a black lace blouse or put a corset over your turtleneck which is really trendy right now.  Even pairing a slinky cami with a cardigan would be great for a day to night look.

Dress up your look for Valentine’s Day with some date night jewelry!  This ravishing red collection from Avon looks way more spendy than it is!  I like how classy it looks but yet sparkly and fun for a date.  I’m wearing the drop earrings, necklace, tennis bracelet also layered with this super cute XOXO pave bracelet.  I just LOVE the jewelry offerings this year from Avon.  They did the cutest pieces that add just the right amount of fun.

I love a good work tote and this reversible one from Coach fits my work needs perfectly.  I also like it for a Valentine’s Day work look because its my 3rd wedding anniversary present, the year of leather.

When is Valentine’s Day this year?

When even is Valentine’s day!?  What day of the week is it on?  What am supposed to get this year… ugh!  No fear, word of alicia has it covered.  This year Valentine’s Day, February 14th, falls on a Tuesday… so that means Taco Tuesday and $5 movie Tuesday!  It’s a precious week night so maybe you make the taco’s at home for Netflix and chill.  But what about the gift?  I have a few ideas for you straight from our Valentine’s Day Boutique on everything on what to wear to what to gift:

What to Wear:  Regardless if you have a date or not you can still wear something to theme out your day even if all you’re doing is going to work.  I personally lean toward red but pinks and purples are also festive!  I love the look above for sultry date night look, the red wrap dress with high low hem works perfectly with a black lace up bootie and statement necklace all from Avon.

I’m loving this girly purple look from mark. for Valentine’s day too!  It would be perfect for a day date, or for tacos!  Paired with fun flats and a mini bag makes if functional while still being romantic.  Also the kind of outfit you could wear to work just to theme out your day 🙂

Fragrance is always a little personal which also why it makes a great gift for yourself.  The nice thing about gifting it at Valentine’s Day is you can gift what you want your Valentine to smell like.  For women’s fragrance I love Avon Femme and the Ultra Sexy Line, like the new trio of body spray’s for $15.  Little Red Dress was just released and perfect for Valentine’s Day.  For men my husband loves Avon Luck and I have to say I do too!  It’s clean and casual so perfect for every day.
