9 Dresses for Valentine's Day

dress, clothing

We are a little more than two weeks away from Valentine's Day and I decided to see what special dresses are available (and can be shipped) in time for the holiday.

RED: Flutter | Sleeves | Neckline
PINK: Bright | Blush | Floral
BLUE: Graphic | Bow | Pattern

Searching online and while shopping this weekend, it really made me think that picking a dress for Valentine's Day really depends on two things. Do you actually celebrate Valentine's and if you buy a dress can you wear it again?

In selecting the dresses above I wanted to pick dresses that would look appropriate for the day but also for other holidays like Easter, upcoming weddings or any other special occasion. Whenever I buy a new item of clothing it has to pass my one item, two ways test (I also created this column showing how I do just that!) and dresses are no exception. The price point on dresses varies widely with your better quality items hovering in the $100-300 price range. That can be a large chunk out of your monthly/yearly clothing budget so it's best to make sure you can wear that dress a few times! 

Which is why I didn't select anything too traditionally Valentine's. No hearts or lovey-dovey patterns. I tried to keep to prints that you could throw a cardigan or blazer on top of and still wear to work (well, except for that hot pink number. That really is just a fun party gown!) 

My plans for Valentine's Day this year are pretty spectacular. I'm headed to the Bahamas for the week and on the morning of Valentine's Day, AMH and I are going horseback riding along the beach. We don't have any big plans for the afternoon but we will get all dolled up for dinner at our resort. I just bought a lovely blue dress that I think I'll wear on the special day. Sometimes it's a little fun to break out of the tradition of wearing red on Valentine's, that's why I included a whole line of blue dresses! 

No matter what you decide to wear on February 14th, I hope you get to spend it with someone special. xx, R
