Valentine’s Day Outfit
Nordstrom black blazer / White blouse / Target red skirt / ASOS black tights / Black patent heels / Red heart necklace / Revlon lipstick in “Really Red” Matte
I have a confession to make. I bought this skirt in the Target girls section. So yes, your 8-year old niece or cousin is probably running around their house right now wearing this same skirt, and I have no shame. I originally bought this skirt around Christmastime, figuring that I’d wear it over leggings for a fun ugly sweater party or maybe even for Santacon, but plans fell through.
So instead, I thought that the red would be cute for Valentine’s Day. By wearing black tights it makes the skirt seem less risque (it’s pretty short- after all it’s meant for people half my age) and a crisp blouse and blazer make it more appropriate. I added a fun heart necklace and a red lip to finish off the date night look.
Wow Rachel, this is such a stunning Valentine’s ensemble. Chic, flirty yet playful. Also love your red lips and your beautiful curly hair. Your man can be super proud to have such a super sweet darlin’ 🙂
aw thank you so much- I will tell him that!
I love that tulle skirt are coming back! I personally loved a longer white version at anthropologie!
Oh my gosh I LOVE your skirt! You look so pretty!
thank you Olivia!
I’ve always wanted to go to a Santacon!!! I was supposed to go the year before last but I think we ended up having family in town or something. Oh well. I love that skirt! The way you styled it is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
haha let’s go this year (so far away!)
Look at you fitting in the little girls section! Talk about a money saver! This skirt is so cute. I love that you chose to keep the outfit simple with just a nice pop of red.
haha thanks! i think it was like 15 dollars, which is not bad for a skirt, right!?
Ok, you look ADORABLE! Such a great outfit, and I seriously love that you shop in the girls section!
thanks so much Julie!
Yay! I love that you shop in the girls section too! I’ve seen this outfit before 😉 but it keeps getting cuter.
aw thanks Ash! I figured I had to post it regardless
Love your outfit!
That skirt is awesome! I would have never guessed it was from the girls department!
The skirt is so cute and flirty! No worries, I’m always shopping in the kids department 🙂
Glad I’m not alone!
I shop in the kids department sometimes too, don’t worry! Sometimes you can find cute things but other things fit so awkwardly (they are not built for women haha). This looks good, I like how you paired it with more sophisticated pieces since its short. It reminds me a little bit of Allison’s post today!
So true- I’ve tried on pants before that were just weird in the butt area (I guess mine is differently shaped than a 10-yr-old girl) Thanks!
love the skirt and red lips! so fab!
Such a cute date night look! And I would have never guessed it was from the girls section! Who cares?! It looks amazing on you 🙂 The blazer definitely gives it a polished look. I hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day/date night tomorrow!
haha thanks Rachel! We’re celebrating this weekend so I’ll have a nice dinner then 🙂
Cute! I think I’m going to wear red/black/white tomorrow night too 🙂 And how funny that you bought that skirt in the girl’s section – I would never have guessed!
Oh my goodness, too cute, I love this skirt!
Such a cute valentine’s day outfit! I LOVE the red skirt. You look beautiful!
thank you Yi-chia!
Just out of curiosity, what is the size equivalent when shopping in the girls section? Like a ladies size 2 = girls size “?”…
I never would have thought to do that, but when I see outfits this cute, it’s tempting!
I’m a size 0 and I got an XL in this. Truthfully, every store/ item is different. If you’re a size 0-2, you can usually fit into a girl’s XL OR XXL (also known as 14/16 size), I’d say anything over a 4 won’t fit in a girl’s size. ALWAYS try it on before buying- that’s what I do!
umm love that is a girls skirt. so cute! and happy belated birthday!!
thank you Ashley!
So cute! I love your festive holiday garb.
Love that your skirt is from the girls section! Super cute.
You are SO cute! I love the red on you, and love the ruffles! Perfect for Valentine’s Day.
aw thank you Emily!
Such a cute skirt Rachel, be proud that you are tiny enough to shop in the girls department! Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
haha thanks again Dina 🙂
No you did NOT get this in the kids section? Holy cuteness! Perfect for Valentine’s Day! You are adorable!!
yes- but only in the XL or XXLs 🙂 thanks!
This is too cute, I would have never guessed it was from the girls! I like it!
Happy belated bday too!
Good- I’m glad I didn’t come across as a 12-year old 🙂
Shopping in the kids section just gives you double the options when shopping! Love that this look is festive, but not over the top!
exactly! Thanks Alyssa
Such a cute look! Love your skirt! Love when I find things in the kids section that fit and are super cute! Perfect V-day look!
That skirt is so fun and girly! Perfect for Valentines Day!
So beautiful! Really, Rachel I don’t think you could make any outfit look bad. You are just like my sister, and I can’t stand people that are like that. I envy you both. hehe. Happy Birthday yesterday. I am sorry I did not get to tell you then.
Aw thank you- you are to sweet! Thanks for the birthday wishes, too! <3
You look beautiful. Such a pretty skirt!

Beautiful sassy outfit! LOVE that skirt!

YOu look stunning! Such a pretty outfit, I can’t believe that skirt is from the girls section! That’s the second time this week I’ve come across a blogger who shopped there. Might have to take a look myself now.
