I am not much of a Valentine’s Day person (mostly because Matt and I’s anniversary is 10 days later) but when you have the right outfit for the occasion, it’s hard not to get excited about the big day. I’m teaming up with Express this year to style a look that feels just as at home when you’re cozied up at a cocktail bar with your love as it is strutting down the street. Click through to read more!

First of all, while I know red is so typical Valentine’s Day, it’s also a classic and it’s hard to argue with timeless style. This lace-up dress is equal parts femme and sexy and I love the delicate ruffle details on it! I’m all for a strong monochromatic look so add in some heels from their amazing women’s shoes line and a red lip and I am Valentine’s-ready!
But of course, to feel totally me while walking to and from my date, I love the addition of a street-chic classic hat and this amazing cross-body bag that feels like it was made for walking the streets of Paris. All of a sudden, the look’s not only femme and romantic, but strong too.
