After Work Valentine's Day Outfit

Valentine's Day is on a weekday this year. As if the day weren't already complicated enough.
Wondering what to get your significant other, figuring out what to do with yourself if you're single, waiting an hour and a half in line at that restaurant because you forgot to make reservations. It takes all the fun out of this wonderful, commercialized day of friendship and romance.

So to speed things up a bit, why not add a pair of cute heels and a chunky statement necklace to your work outfit, and hit the town with your lover right out of work? No need to go home and waste more time. I'll actually be in school all night this Thursday, so Nestor and I are opting for a V-day breakfast. I'll be wearing something more comfy that day, which I will share with you soon.

My formula here is easy: 
1. Neutral top + V-day colored pants (or the reverse)
2. Chunky necklace + cute heels

Channeling my inner Adele with this hairdo and makeup.
See the "Di" bracelet? Fun fact: Every time you go on a Carnival cruise from Miami, you get one of these for free from Diamonds International. Between my mom and I, we had up to 10 at one point. This is the only one that's survived.

Nestor got me this Coach for our 3rd Christmas together, in 2009. 

Hope you liked my easy to recreate look! I'm excited to see all the blogger V-day creations out there. Ok, not all the blogger V-day creations. That would take months. But certainly lots of them. 

Side note: I have a Firmoo giveaway going on that needs entries! Enter here.

  4. Wow...you got some great bargains. Your necklace is so pretty! And your pants...they fit you perfectly. This is definitely one of the most practical Valentine's Day looks. Not everyone has the day off from work, so it's nice to see something other than short little dresses. Nothing against teeny tiny dresses. It's just not work appropriate. Anyway, love this look! It's perfect for breakfast :)

      I agree. Short dresses are great, but I wanted to do something more weekday appropriate. Or practical. :)
