OOTD: Valentine Date Night

While my small wardrobe is centered around mix and match neutrals, every once in a while I crave a bit more color, pattern or BOTH! It can be just the thing to pull you out of the doldrums caused by a cold, grey winter. The red-pink-black palette of this leopard top seemed like a perfect fit for a Valentine Date Night look.

Valentine Date Night Look

You may recognize the top I’m wearing from this Valentine Shop post. I ended up ordering it as I was really drawn to both the color combination and the leopard pattern. The top is a much thicker fabric than you would initially suspect! Almost like a ponte knit with a thin poly lining on the interior. Initially I thought this piece would transition nicely into Spring/Summer by pairing it with a walking short, but after getting it, I’ve realized it’s probably too heavy for hotter days.

The top pictured is a size small. Because I have a small chest, I think I could have gone down into an XS and may have had fewer issues with the v-neckline peeking open. The trousers are one of my favorite basics – the Banana Republic Sloan Ankle pant. A black or medium-blue jean would also work great with this top. The shoes are staple from my special occasion capsule. The suede gives them a dressier appearance and I typically turn toward this shoe for nicer events when it’s too cold to wear a sandal.
