I’m back with another Valentine’s Day outfit, featuring my favorite color (pink!) and some trends I’ve been wanting to try lately. I love the cable knit sweater sets and tennis skirts that have been popping up over the last couple of years and was immediately inspired once I bought my Valentine’s Day gift to myself… the Gucci Woman’s rubber slide sandal. If you want to wear something fun and flirty (for yourself or your significant other), this outfit is for you.
As I put together my Valentine’s Day outfit, I couldn’t help but think about how the right gift can truly elevate the occasion. This year, my choice was not just about fashion but also about adding a touch of humor and playfulness to the celebration. Imagine the surprise on your partner’s face when they unwrap a quirky and unexpected present like underwear with your face on it. It’s a delightful twist that turns a traditional gift into a memorable, laughter-filled moment. Choosing unique and thoughtful gifts, whether it’s trendy fashion items or creative surprises like underwear with face designs, adds an extra layer of joy to Valentine’s Day, making it a celebration to remember for both you and your loved one.
White Tennis Skirt
I have been searching high and low all throughout 2020 for the perfect tennis skirt that wasn’t actually a tennis skirt, large enough to accommodate my curves with the perfect pleats. To be fair, I did love playing tennis growing up and have always wanted to wear cute tennis outfits, but my fear of chafing always got to me. I wish I could tell my younger, more active self to just wear the outfits because I was going to chafe with other outfits anyway. lol. I ordered a pleated skirt from ASOS but I couldn’t even sit down in it. I found this white pleated skirt at Shein, which I haven’t purchased from in years (and try not to with their track record), but I’m really happy with the skirt.
Cable Knit Sweater Set
The cable knit sweater set is from River Island, and I purchased it through ASOS since they were running a promotion at the time. The set is the loveliest shade of pink but I’ll have to have the straps altered because they keep falling down. The matching sweater sets are all over the internet right now, and I remember seeing some really cute options at Zara last S/S season so I’m hoping there will be more cute pastel sets to come this S/S. I think this sweater set would be cute with jeans, a satin slip skirt for work, any and every thing really…
Pink and Pearl Accessories
Going with the preppy tennis theme, I went with pearl accessories I purchased from H&M a couple of years ago, earrings from an Audrey Leighton Vintage drop, and an anklet from Boutique Minimaliste (one of the Nicole Ballardini collections). I never realized how much pearl accessories would become an absolute wardrobe staple for me – you can style them minimally or go all out like I did with this outfit. I brought the look together with my Polly Pocket shoes aka the Gucci rubber slide sandal in pink, which I’ll be doing a separate post on as the TikTok video I made on them went viral and sparked loads of questions about the fit of the shoe.
This Valentine’s Day, I’m celebrating self-love and love for the people in my life. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day whether you’re doing the same or spending your time with a significant other! You can shop the post below via affiliate links.
