Casual in Pink for Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day in years past, I've worn red for the occasion, but typically I like to adorn myself in pink if I can. Last year, I wore this light pink ribbed choker sweater, and the year before I wore this super cute bows and stripes pink dress. Today I put together a look featuring one of my favorite color combinations: pink and gray!

I must say that when I got this dress from Chicwish, I thought it was going to still feel like winter here in the Bay Area. But it was like 70 degrees and sunny when I did this shoot, so thanks, pretty knit sleeves. It was really the sweetheart bust that made me think this dress would be great as a Valentine's Day look. I actually don't have anything big planned for the occasion, which is why I've kept the look quite casual. And comfortable, too! Seriously, the ribbing is awesome. To continue the casual vibe, I paired the dress with these gray sneakers that I bought while in L.A. last month.

Are you guys doing anything fun on Valentine's Day, or are you cuddling up with Netflix or a good book? I'm not really into rom-coms, but these are a few of my favorites that I'd recommend you watch this V-Day:
  • 10 Things I Hate About You
  • How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
  • Crazy, Stupid Love
  • 500 Days of Summer
  • Amélie
  • The Longest Ride

What's your favorite rom-com?
