Red Dress over a Black Mock Turtleneck Sweater, Polka Dot Tights, & a Bow Necklace

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all have a nice day doing romantic things or just stuffing your face with treats! Here's an outfit I wore a couple weeks back but saved for today since it features this red dress I thrifted. I just really liked how this outfit turned out with the turtleneck sweater layered underneath my sleeveless dress. Plus polka dot tights look good with pretty much anything. 

I'll post what I actually wore today sometime soon! I went with non-traditional blue lace dress for Valentine's day last year. (Though we celebrated a day early. I wore a heart sweater outfit on the actual holiday.) I still love the more common red and pink color scheme of the holiday though. For Valentine's Day 2012 I went with the red and black color scheme with a red wool skirt and striped tights. Red dresses are always a good idea though - so here's a red dress outfit! 

dress: thrifted | sweater: thrifted | tights: kmart | boots: hand-me-down | necklace: forever 21 | belt: thrifted





Do you guys have any plans for tonight? Or non-plans? Sometimes staying at home and eating lots of chocolate is just as fun as going out, I think. Matt and I are going to make an Irish cream bread pudding. We decided to do an inexpensive dinner and maybe a movie or bowling too. (This is assuming the ice from this week is melted and places are actually open.)



Here's a good outtake. Wind: the style blogger's enemy.



I hope you guys have a good day and a great weekend! Happy Valentine's Day!

Oh wowie, you sure planned this one out! Buwahaha, I have a few outfits that have been taken a month or so ago, too... it's nice to have a few ready when things get busy. But ah, those boots, those tights, and that dress together are all just so cute. I'd wear this in an instant!

Hope you've been stayin' safe through your ice storms and such! I think GA got hit a lot more than where I am in Alabama.

Such an adorable outfit! Wow that dress is so wonderful, such a vibrant colour. But your best accessory is your beautiful smile.
Have fun dear.

Red and black always go so great together.
we're not bog Valentines day celebrators here so Kris and I spent the evening watching something new on the TV and eating our favourite jacket potatoes because they are just too awesome.

Also, the outtake photo is great! You should do some more... hehe. I think it's the peril of outdoor shooting!

This dress is so cute on you and perfect for valentine's day. I have never had bread pudding, but that sounds so good right about now. Also I am over here dying to see your new haircut!

You look totally darling! I can't wait to show my mom your blog (she is 4'11' also - I'm actually the tallest girl in my family at 5'3' lol)
