While I’m not a huge fan or devoted celebrator of Valentine’s Day – I am a HUGE fan of dressing up. And I’ll take any excuse I can get.

Since I have no pink in my wardrobe, which I realized when getting ready for the Bay Area Women’s March, I went a splash of red when I put together my Valentine’s Day look.

I was drawn to the idea of adding some edge to my look to keep it from being too saccharine. I know Valentine’s Day can call to mind hearts and ruffles and ultra feminine pieces, but I decided to juxtapose the red tunic against black faux leather.

You could easily make this more casual by switching out the killer patent leather pumps for booties or a cute pair of red flats.

And, truth be told, this doesn’t have to be a date night look. I for one have spent a few of my most memorable Valentine’s Days with my girlfriends. 🙂

So, whether you’re aiming for date night slink or girls night out glam – Have a blast!

What are YOU wearing for Valentine’s Day? Do you have a favorite nighttime look this time of year?
