Happy February! With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day-inspired look for date night today. I love blush for any time of year and I fell in love with this super soft blush funnel-neck sweater. I love the neckline and the sleeve detail. It looks great tucked in and untucked.

Navy is one of my favorite neutrals, and I was inspired by this velvet fold-over clutch to pair blush and navy for this outfit. I pulled out my blush slides to complete the look.

Mathew and I love a good date night, but we’re not typically big Valentine’s Day people. Most years we just make dinner at home and exchange cards or we’ll go out to dinner. We don’t exchange gifts or make a huge deal of it.

This time last year we were starting to plan for growing our family. We were hoping that it would be our last Valentine’s Day just the two of us (and we were right!) so to celebrate we planned on going out to dinner to celebrate. I wrote about our super special Valentine’s Day date that Mathew surprised me with last year in this post (hint: it involves dinner in New York City!!).

Anyway, last year was sort of an anomaly.

What I like about this date night outfit is that the blush gives a nod to the traditional pink and red Valentine’s Day theme without being over the top, so it can be worn for other occasions as well. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’m all about versatility. Even last year, I wore a red dress I bought in December for Christmas again for Valentine’s Day.

The blush and navy combination feels classic and this is an outfit I could see myself wearing for a date night any time of year.
