Yes, yes, I know Valentine’s Day was yesterday but tonight is when my husband and I are actually going out on the town so I wanted to keep the vibe going.  Plus, pink and red is the theme of this week’s Friday’s Fancies with Long Distance Loving.  Who am I to argue?

But just in case pink and red together isn’t your thing, I also paired this outfit with a neutral shoe.

Black shoes would also work.  As would heels in black, red or nude if that’s your preference. Or riding boots. Don’t want to wear skinny jeans?  Boyfriend or straight leg jeans would work just as well. Remember, the idea here is to inspire you not tell you that this is the only look that works!  It’s just another monochromatic top paired with a dark bottom.

But, tell me. Red shoes?  Nude shoes?  Should I have gone with black?  Did you do anything for Valentine’s Day?

P.S.  I’ve gotten some requests via my reader survey (which is still open for another few days!) to post more casual outfits.  Does this count?
