Valentines, and How to Wear DIY: Perfect hot pink!

It's almost Valentine's Day! I guess I'm more excited about the build-up to Valentine's Day than the holiday itself; I'm not "a Valentine's Day person," as some people say... but, I love the wave of creativity that comes over so many of us in the face of a creatively interesting holiday like one involving pink, red, and hearts. So I've really enjoyed seeing some cute Valentine's-ey DIYs lately!

Just pinned this collection of ideas from Apartment Therapy.



That said, um, I don't have any plans to DO any holiday projects, really... (except for this super easy trick we did at a girls' night Valentine's Day party we had this weekend!), and I don't have any big plans for celebrating. Probably just go out to dinner or make a special dinner at home with the husband, which will be nice!, but nothing super holiday crazy.

I do like to dress festively, but I don't have much red or hot pink. But when going out to dinner over the weekend, to get into the February mood, I pulled out my brightest, Valentine's-ey-est, cheeriest, most festive piece of clothing: the vintage skirt I made over into a cute a-line. Perfect for the Valentine's season!

Shirt: Marshall's. Sweater: Gap/Goodwill. Shoes: JC Penney.
Skirt: DIY, from a vintage one!

HOT pink!! Super cool fabric, too, it's a wool knit. I felt very bold in the pink/black/white combo!

What are you doing to celebrate this cute and potentially craft-inspiring holiday? Any great easy projects or festive outfits? ;)

  2. For some reason, my Valentine's Day dress is going to be blue! It just happens to be the prettiest dress I cut fabric for. Hopefully I can finish my cape instead which would be a cute pink houndstooth, and would be perfect! I'll share if I do finish.

  5. Those outfits look great on you. :)

    As for our celebrations we'll probably get little caesars or something.
