Happy Friday! This week in Chicago has been the coldest it’s been since the 60’s… is that crazy or what!? The whole city seems to just shut down as no one wants to (or should!) leave their house. With all these cold temps, it’s hard to even start thinking about Valentine’s day… but if you’re looking for a last minute outfit, Woodfield Mall has you covered!
I love Woodfield Mall because it’s only about a 30-minute drive outside of Chicago and has over 200 retail stores (and some really good restaurants!) Whenever I feel like getting out the hustle and bustle of city life, I love to venture out there and spend the day. I was in need of some outfit inspo for Valentine’s day this year and found some really great options- so make sure to check out Woodfield Mall if you’re on the lookout as well!
Fancy Night Out
I love this cute little sequin dress I found at Express! It’s perfect for a date night and because it has long sleeves, it’s perfect for any climate. If it’s still freezing cold where you are (ahem, the Midwest) you could even throw on a pair of tights. The color is super vibrant and the perfect Valentine’s Day shade of pink!
Casual Night Out
Maybe you’re going to a movie, bowling, or a casual dinner… this sweater just screams Valentine’s Day. It features flared sleeves and an oversized fit, so it’s a fun take on a boring ‘ol sweater. This one also comes in a fun green/black and cream color and is very affordable!
Valentine’s Day Work Party
I also love this red dress option from White House/ Black Market! It fits like an absolute glove and the material is stretchy, so if the party involves lots of good food & drinks – you’ll still have room to breathe! This one is also such a great option to have on hand outside of Valentine’s day, for Wedding’s, Birthdays, etc.
Okay, so maybe you just want to have a fun night out with the girls! I love, love this hot pink tie dress from Nordstrom, and it would be the perfect choice for a date night with your gal pals. This dress also comes in SEVEN colors and is super affordable which makes it a win-win!
Cozy Night In
If your date involves staying in, ordering food and watching Netflix… I’m jealous. This fuzzy & warm pullover from Nordstrom is the ultimate shade for Valentine’s day and has the cutest little heart embroidery… could it be any more perfect!?
I love this dress because it’s really perfect for any type of Valentine’s event you have planned. I have this dress in a few other colors (it comes in a ton- long sleeve & sleeveless!), and it’s one of the most comfortable and well-fitting dresses I own. This dress can be dressed up or down (leather jacket, heels, boots) and would be a great choice for a date night, girls night, or even work party (it’s long enough!)
