Spring transitional outfit Or Valentine’s?
What do you think of this outfit? Do you think this is a Spring transitional outfit or Valentine’s Day Outfit? What comes to mind first? I bet Valentine’s Day outfit came first, probably because it is only a couple days away. Honestly, when I created this outfit, I had Spring transitional outfit in mind. With my “I’m so over Winter” attitude, I just wanted to create an outfit that was vibrant, happy, and screams Spring without freezing my legs.
One of my favorite color combos to create is pink and red. I love that they’re somewhat in the same hue color range, yet they look quite opposite at the same time. Overall, I just enjoyed that it has a very feminine feel to it.
Pleated Wide Leg Pants
I knew creating a transitional look would be the perfect opportunity to bust out any wide-leg pants. You all know, I’m a sucker for wide-leg pants, especially pleated ones! The wider the better. These pants cover your legs (layer with tights for extra warmth), but they also can be cool enough for Spring temperatures. I personally think sweaters will be worn until mid-June. That’s Chicago for ya!
If you are interested in these pleated wide-leg pants, I’d say they fit slightly large. I’m wearing a size small, and it’s loose, but not loose enough to fall off. It’s supposed to be high-waisted, but it’s sitting higher than the hip area. I guess they call that mid-rise fit? I think if I ordered an XS, it would be high-waisted. So I was a little disappointed in that.
However, the length did not need any hemming at all. Usually, wide-legs are very long. I either need to hem it or wear heels. I’m wearing slingback flats. These pants were a lucky find!
Also, how cute are my Lisi Lerch earrings? I’ve been eyeing a similar pair at Anthropologie, but they immediately sold out. So when I had the opportunity to get a pair from Lisi Lerch, you bet I immediately said YESS! The floral design is so cute and unique!
My Valentine’s Day Outfit
The timing of this post could not have been more perfect because pink and red scream Valentine’s Day as well. And you are correct, I will wear it for Valentine’s Day! Every Valentine’s Day outfit I have been coming across was made for warmer weather. Snow is currently falling as I type this so wearing a dress is a big no right now. Plus, I like how this outfit doesn’t look overdressed.
We aren’t going anywhere fancy. We are still right around the neighborhood. There’s a new Indian restaurant that just opened, and I figured why not use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to try it out? It’s only a few blocks away! What are your plans?
