Whether you are a hopeless romantic or a cynical “Valentine’s Day is a made up Hallmark holiday” kind of girl, one thing we can all agree on is that this “love day” is the perfect excuse to get dressed up! (Not to mention the candy!!) I ran across this flirty little ruffled number by After Market when I was recently checking out Pomp & Circumstance Boutique’s precious new Rice Village location. I’m a sucker for seersucker, and the flattering ruffled double v-neck on this dress sealed the deal for me. These ombre BaubleBar drop earrings gave this outfit the perfect Valentine’s vibe, and a hot pink lippie by NYX was just the right finishing touch for a romantic look. Although my real V-Day evening plans include ballet class, tae kwon do, guitar lessons, and the final pee wee basketball game of the season, at least I have an outfit ready should another Hallmark holiday appear on my calendar in the near future!
