Black & White

What’s black, white, and red all over?“. Anybody else remember those classic jokes from middle school? I sure do. The answer was usually ‘a newspaper‘, but some kids really liked to get creative and make up something new. So like every normal twenty-something year old college student, I decided to pull some inspiration.

Around the beloved (or dreaded) v-day, outfits adorned with splashes of reds and pinks fill our Pinterest feeds. Don’t get me wrong, friends, I love a good, classic Valentine’s Day Outfit. I really do! But sometimes you just want to opt for something easy, simple, and neutral. Something that works for date nights and gal-pal parties alike.

For this kind of anti-Valentine’s Day look (if we wanna call it that), I decided to opt for a black turtleneck top, a white skirt, and black over the knee boots. Simple and clean. For a pop of red, you could totally rock a red clutch or some bold red lips (my newest favorite shade is “Little Weapon” from Colourpop. It’s everything.).

Who says you can’t wear white in February? I adore this flouncy skater skirt from Privacy Please. It will be perfect for spring with a printed top and little lace up sandals, but I love it this time of year as a transition piece. I love that it feels so high quality and that it is lined (there’s nothing worse than a see through skirt. Who’s with me on that one?). I picked it up on sale in white a few months ago on Revolve, but it’s available in so many great prints.

Whether you decide to opt for a classic red, girly pink, or classic neutral outfit for Valentine’s Day, I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow and that you spend the holiday with your loved ones! Regardless of whatever plans you may have, I think Vday is the perfect day to really celebrate those you care about. On that note, I just wanted to say that I love and appreciate you! Thank you for your constant support and for making me feel loved.
