Happy Valentine's week, my little cherubs!

This outfit completely goes against my (alleged) style shift- you know, the one where I'm trying to dress like a professional adult- but if there's one day where you should be allowed to dress a little kitschy, it's Valentine's Day, right?

Truth be told, I’ve been rotating through all the red, pink, and heart printed (or shaped!) items in my closet for the last week or so (that’s when I wore this outfit, peep yesterday's actual Valentine office outfit here) because, why not? I really love thematic dressing, and this has to be my favorite holiday to dress for.

This sweater was a very recent hand-me-down from Carina, who wistfully gave it to me and said “I used to wear this every year on Valentine’s Day!” Done and done. Otherwise, I tried to keep the look as neutral as possible, what with the heart-print tights and sparkly flats. For my ultimate Valentine lip, I started with MAC lipstick in St. Germain and added NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream over top. The layering made the look less Cyndi Lauper and more Barbie (though I’ve been crushing Time After Time lately!)

If you’re wondering how I spent my atypical Valentine’s Day (atypical for me, I suppose, in recent years anyway): I went to the Ariana Grande concert with a couple girlfriends (and one girlfriend’s boyfriend who I also love!) I was a huge fan of her last album, and she did not disappoint! I sang and danced my little heart out, sequin-clad and with another pink lip.

I sure hope you experienced some Valentine magic yesterday, too!
