The Perfect Blush Dress to Wear for Valentine’s Day

As we mentioned, this week we are focusing on the holiday of love. All our outfits and treats are inspired entirely by Valentine’s Day (think: red, pink, and hearts galore). And what screams Valentine’s Day more so than this feminine, flirty, flouncy blush dress? And the midi hemline I absolutely love. Sadly, the dress just sold out, quite literally, as I’m typing this post, so until it comes back in stock, I’ve found other blush dresses I absolutely adore here, here, here, and here.

Because it can be a bit chillier in the evenings, I paired the dress with a cozy grey cardigan, which also adds a casual element to the look. That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with this dress actually – it’s casual feel. Did you notice the pockets?

And my handbag of choice for this outfit is one of my very favorites from this season, the Sophie Hulme rainbow stripe leather tote (also available in a smaller size, shoulder bag, and wallet, along with glittering rainbow options, too).
