10 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas + Style inspo

navy blazer // similar skirt // strappy heels // circle crossbody // white tee

We’re fourteen days away from the loveliest day of the year: Valentine’s Day! Do you typically get all dressed up for date night to celebrate the occasion? While I love dresses & skirts this time of year, I can’t stand being cold even for a second. Even when it’s only 65 degrees out – I guess that’s the Texan in me!? Which is why I love the idea of dressing up a sweet-as-can-be skirt or sundress with a stylish blazer this time of year. British designer Charlotte London’s┬ácollections of swoon-worthy blazers are the perfect pieces to top any look and I’m thrilled to be styling this navy tweed one today!

Sharing more of this look and a few fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day below!

This pretty pink skirt of mine was an Anthropologie find several years ago and I haven’t stopped loving it! I have so much fun bringing it out this time of year to celebrate the season. I love the way my tweed Charlotte London Biker Box style blazer looks paired with such a feminine and flowy skirt. My favorite way to style edgier pieces is to pair them with anything flowy and feminine. It makes for a fun juxtaposition that some would call both sassy & sweet. ­čśë

As my skirt is sold out, I’ve rounded up a few similar styles from across the web that are just as cute! Dress them up with a blazer, a tee, a blouse, or even a fitted sweatshirt this season. The possibilities are endless!

Swoon-worthy Skirts for Valentine’s Day

And speaking of Valentine’s Day, do you have exciting plans this year? Some years we go out, some we stay in & whip up a fabulous dinner. A few of my favorite ways to celebrate are below:

  • Catch the Latest Flick
  • Head Out for a Romantic Dinner
  • Or Stay in and Whip Up Your Own
  • Ice Skating or Roller Skating (seriously how fun!!)
  • See some Live┬áMusic – a local band or even the symphony!
  • Spoil Each Other at the Spa (Vida & Health Day Spa in HTX offers a CHOCOLATE wrap & massage)
  • Go Bowling
  • Star Wars Movie Marathon at Home (Honestly this will probably be us this year ha)
  • Spend the Day Outside – Go Hiking, Walk Through the Park or Bike
  • Catch a Play – Bonus points if it’s a romantic one!

What’s your ideal way to spend Valentine’s day? And thank you to Charlotte London for sponsoring this blog post. As always, all opinions are my own. Thanks to you guys for supporting the brands that make Lone Star Looking Glass possible.
