Blue Valentine's Day Outfits + DIY Wreath

When most people think about an outfit for Valentine's Day, they'll instantly gravitate towards something pink or red. Recently, I mentioned some of my favorite picks for Valentine's Day in pink including some fabulous dresses under $50. But I also like wearing other colors for Valentine's Day. Navy blue offers an unexpected twist to a traditional day and will keep you in style whether your plans include watching movies at home or having dinner in at your favorite casual restaurant.

As much as I love to get dressed up for a night out, the reality is that this Valentine's Day, I'll be enjoying it with my favorite valentines in a casual atmosphere.

Pair red jeanswith the navy and white Heart-Print Nantucket Shirt. I love the crisp look of the red, white, and blue. It's perfection; casual and chic.

Another fabulous option in navy and white is this adorable striped cardigan. The Heart Elbow Patch Cardigan Sweater would be perfect for a classroom teacher to wear. It's on super sale, too, at only $28!

Pair this adorable Pleated Heart Top with your favorite cardigan for a perfect look no matter what your plans include. It's another great buy at less than $25.

Be comfortable and warm on Valentine's Day in a soft Heart Terry Sweatshirt. It's incredibly versatile and can look casual or elegant depending on how you wear it.

For Valentine's Day, I bought a pre-made burlap wreath at Michael's with a coupon that I found in the newspaper. I simply attached some wooden conversation hearts that I found in the $1 section of the store with a hot glue gun and voila...an easy DIY Valentine's Day wreath.

Are your Valentine's Day plans a casual or more formal event? I'd love to know what you plan to wear.



  1. Because my anniversary is in February and it is Valentine's day this month, I am hoping for a gift from Spartina. I wanted to share the company with you. I highly recommend the jewelry. I was at a shop at the beach last year and I purchased a station necklace with green and blue gems. I bought the matching emerald cut green earrings. I ended up wearing them for my son's high school graduation with an ivory lace top and navy skirt. It was perfect because he loves the beach. The colors reminded me of the ocean. I have since discovered that they have a lot of beach charms that are perfect to wear with Lilly. I also find the jewelry holds up wonderfully. Here is their website: http://www.spartina449.com/jewelry-watches.html.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing! I'll check out Spartina. Hope you get something sparkly for Valentine's Day.

  2. I really like the first one! But since you did not include a price or say great deal I bet it is much more than the rest :-) Still I love it and it may need to be an option in my wardrobe. All great pics, the last looks super comfy too. A little casual but would be great for hanging out with the kids or running around.

    1. Although the first shirt is not on sale, the price is relatively reasonable! Hope you have a great day!
