Valentine's Day Fashion

Blame it on Pinterest, but I'm already in the Valentine's Day mood.  Whether you're single, crushing, or involved... there's no excuse for not taking some cues from Cupid when it comes to dressing up in the lovey-dovey spirit.  The above fashion board is all about pink.  I threw out the bold, garish shade of pink you often see throughout February and replaced it with the perfect blushing hue.
The pale mauve dress with its long lace sleeves, slight A-line skirt, and waist-cinching brown belt would look darling with a pair of over-the-knee boots and pocket-watch necklace  A flirty, ruffly pink blouse would look oh-so-flirty with a pair of dark, slimming bootcut jeans---especially with crimson accessories thrown in.  Lastly, I couldn't get over this romantic dress, especially with glitzy-toed heels and a classic bag.  With blush, go big or go home.  Give your face a glowing radiance with natural pink blush.  Paint your nails to match ballerina slippers.  A light rosy lipstick completes your lovely look.
The color I want to focus on for Valentine's Day is a neutral hue you'll want to eat up: chocolate brown!  For a cozy couple hours at the coffee shop, get inspired by chocolate-covered cherries... put on a casual ensemble of skinny jeans, a brown long-sleeved tee, red scarf, and brown leather biker boots, accessorized with a bold ring and cute cross-body bag.  The second outfit is reminiscent of the fluffy, delicious nougat center of beloved candy bars.  Take the light brown lace dress to class by dressing it down with darker oxfords and a handsome bag.  Lastly, we dive into caramel-filled chocolate.  This deep brown tunic is sinfully sweet for a night out on the town when paired with milk chocolate pumps and a caramelly clutch.  Warm up winter with a golden glow on your face: bronzer, neutral eye shadow, and gold-flecked lips.   Cappuccino-hued nail polish will look delicious on your fingertips, might I add.
You know I wouldn't write a Valentine's Day fashion post without getting some red in there.  And who doesn't feel sexy in a little red dress?  For this board, I found a little red dress for every occasion.  The first is a flowy, pleated, cherry-hued frock.  It looks perfectly ladylike with peach, vintagey pumps, a coral clutch, and pearls---perhaps for a candlelit dinner?  Strapless, formfitting, and red hot, the second dress is ideal for dressing up with glittery chandelier earrings, a satin clutch, and lavender heels for a more fancy affair.  Finally, this short-sleeve dress is ready for the office.  Keep it professional and chic with a classic watch, classy purse, and spectator-pump-inspired flats.  Since you're wearing a bold color, go easy on the makeup and skip the red lipstick.  Instead, go au natural with the cosmetics---putting on a little nude lipstick and a lot of thickening mascara for some sultry eyes.  Paint your nails a pale, shimmery metallic.

Ok, tell me! What is your ideal Valentine's Day date?  And which of these ensembles is your favorite?
