Be My Valentine

by Jessica Sturdy on February 8, 2013

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! If you haven’t already planned your outfit, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re going on a date with your guy or you’re headed out on the town with your girls, you’ll want to dress to impress!

I always have the urge to be cliché and wear pink and/or red on Valentine’s Day. When I saw this Sophie Theallet for The Limited dress, I knew it would be the perfect little number for February 14th. Since the day of love falls on a Thursday this year, I knew I needed a dress that would transition easily from my desk to dinner and beyond. Check back tomorrow to see how I styled this dress for the work day!

Very cute! The lace is so girly but I can see this dress being work appropriate too. Can’t wait to see how you style it for the office. Love the sequin jacket!

So classy and gorgeous! My outfit won’t take a lot of thought… Just a leotard and tights (I teach dance). Vday always falls on one of my teaching nights somehow…

LOVE!! I can’t believe this dress is from The Limited! It looks much more expensive than $118! I love when that happens!

What does it say about me that I immediately knew that was a Sophie Theallet dress from The Limited?

Maybe that I spend WAY too much time on The Limited’s website and in their store…
