Valentine’s Day Outfit: Be My 80’s Valentine.

Need a super retro Valentine’s Day outfit? Sure.

This blush sweater is right up my alley: statement sleeves and a cool knit in the color I cannot seem to get enough of. I wore it with a pair of super faded 501’s and these white boots from Forever21. My goal was to put together something sassy + casual for a Valentine’s Day outfit, but I ended up looking like a member of the Brat Pack.

Shop the look:

Sometimes you put on an outfit, feel really good about it, and then shoot it– only to find it doesn’t photograph well. It looks good in person but somehow doesn’t translate to photos. (Blogger pals, you feel me?) Other times, you put on an outfit, feel really good about it, and then shoot it– only to find it is so ridiculously 80’s it almost looks like a costume. For some people, they scrap the look. For me, I lean into it. You want 80’s? I’ll give you 80’s.

White boots are making a huge comeback; you’ve seen me in these and now that I’ve got these heeled + pointed-toe version, I’m set. Toss that old no white after Labor Day rule out the window, because white boots in the winter are seriously statement-making. White helps lighten a look and hint at spring, while still staying pretty firmly in winter territory via jeans and a sweater.

  1. This is so my kind of outfit!! I need that jumper in my life, it looks so cosy!! I love how you’ve paired it with the light wash jeans and white boots 🙂 xx

  2. 80’s never looked so good, girl! Your pink sweater looks so comfy and I love that you styled it with white booties. I’m all over the white bootie trend!

  3. I think I know what you mean about outfits coming out different when you photograph them! For me the issue is looking fatter in the picture and hating it! I love the wash of the jeans and the color of the pink, it is very 80s and very cute!
