Hi friends! Today I wanted to share The Perfect Casual Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea! I feel like I never do content for the random holidays we have throughout the year, but I wanted to share this love inspired outfit I styled with you guys! LOFT was kind enough to send me some items from their Valentine’s Day collection and this sweater was my absolute favorite thing on the list!
If you’ve been trying to decide what to wear this year, I felt that a casual route would be best since it’s likely most people will be staying in. I love styling looks with straight jeans and fun accessories and this was the perfect combination for everything I was looking for! If you want to hear more about how I chose what items to pair with my sweater, as well as where to buy them yourself, be sure to keep reading!
Heart Patterned Sweater
I have FALLEN IN LOVE with this heart patterned sweater from LOFT! It’s so cozy which I always look for out of sweaters. I’m allergic to wool and some other animal fibers, so I always look for warm items that don’t have those OR have minimal amounts of those fibers. Aside from this sweater being massively comfy, I love the fact that it also has the hr cutest design.
I feel like some Valentine’s Day items go a bit over the top when it comes to design, so this gives you the perfect combination! You get the casual style of a cream colored knit, but you also get the chic hearts on the right side of the sweater! I love that there’s one on the sleeve because continued designs make my heart happy. If you need a top for Vday, I highly suggest purchasing this cute little sweater!

High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans
I also LOVE a straight leg jean. This is a pair I grabbed from Old Navy a few month back and everyone is surprised that this is where I purchased them from! I used to hate straight leg jeans because a lot of them were not made for anyone with hips, but I feel like designs in the past couple of years have made the style more accessible to a larger variety of body types which makes me so happy!
This particular pair is one of my favorite pairs of jeans in my closet for a few reasons. They’re the PERFECT length to pair with booties like the ones I’ve styled in this look. I love jeans that can work with various styles of shoes, so that’s one reason these are the best! I also love the subtle distressed texture this pair has. Sometimes I don’t want my jeans to have an aggressive ripped pattern on them, so this subtle distressing is another great feature of these jeans!

White Faux Snakeskin Boots
Y’all know I gotta have a section dedicated to my shoes! Shoes are something I will always love to collect. My closet shelf broke and when maintenance came to fix it the guy legit remarked “Wow, you have a lot of shoes!” I just feel like they’re the one thing I’ll never grow out of as an adult, so why not splurge on something that will last for years! I’ll show my privilege with this next statement, but I actually forgot about these shoes under my bed for a few months.
I switched out my bed frame to an older one I had and realized the box had just ended up underneath! I was so excited to re-discover this pair because I feel like they can work in literally every single season. They’re from Amazon and are under $60 so not only are they the perfect accessory, they’re also really affordable too! I also love the faux snakeskin pattern on them. It elevates the design just a bit!

Red Hoop Statement Earrings
The last item I wanted to share in my post were these red, double hoop earrings! I am a strong proponent of shopping sales and clearance. After Christmas I ALWAYS go to Target! They generally have all of their Christmas items 50-75% off and that included holiday gifting items! This pair of earrings came in a set with another pair and they ended up being only $10 total. I try to have unique statement earrings that can work for various looks, so I was excited to find some red ones!
When styling this outfit before my shoot, I saw these on my organizer (shop my earring organizer here) and KNEW they were perfect. I love that they have a double hoop because it just gives that extra detail which makes them even cuter. They also ended up matching the red heart in my sweater TO A TEE and I couldn’t have planned that better. If you’re trying to find a way to tie back colors in your outfit to match, always find an accessory that works!
