Happy Sunday lovely ladies! Hope all of you are having a relaxing weekend. Valentine’s day is approaching, and today I’ll show you how to dress for day or night on February 14th for however way you may be spending the day. It could be a movie date during the day, fancy dinner and dancing with your significant other at night, or perhaps you’ll be at a girls get together with your besties. I have a casual chic outfit, and an all glammed up look for you.

I am also super excited as I have a HUGE giveaway for you in partnership with Palm Beach Tan  for 6 (yes you’ve heard it right 🙂 ) prizes including one GRAND PRIZE which includes a three-month Diamond Premier membership, with unlimited sunbed and spray tanning use to the PBT salon of your choice, a $150 gift card to Nordstrom for the perfect date night outfit AND a CHI styling kit for beautifully styled hair.  Pretty impressive right? <3 Don’t forget to enter via Rafflecopter at the end of the post for a chance to win these fab prizes.


On Valentine’s Day we usually either go to a movie, and lunch or to a full on fancy date night with a dinner, drinks and maybe even a bit of dancing depending on the childcare we could arrange. ( For instance if my parents are here, it’s likely night out.)



However obvious they may be, I can’t stop myself from wearing pink, and red tones on the 14th haha. I try to put my spin on these classic Valentine’s Day colors. I also like to mix them up in the same outfit.

Style Tip: For a day look you can’t go wrong with jeans. I usually pair mine with a pink top just like this one with soft, feminine lines. I like to mix in red with an accessory such as my shoulder bag, and of course love to add a bit of a fun pattern similar to my leopard pumps.


As Valentine’s Day is in the middle of the cold, dry winter, I LOVE to get a bit of warm tone on my skin (which I believe makes everything look ten times better) with sunless tanning using self-tanners or spray tanning.  ( If you prefer sunbed tanning, don’t forget to follow these rules for tanning safely.)


Style Tip: I accessorize my day look with an arm party that is as timeless as jeans. A large gold rose watch, and elegant bracelets keep the look clean while providing a bit of a sparkle.





Top: Fitted Chiffon Top T-Shirt | Jeans: Stitch Fix (Reviews here) | Shoes: Leopard Pumps on Sale  | Bag: Kate Spade (other option I like same brand) | Jewelry: Rocksbox (Get Your Free month Here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo ) Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs  Watch: Michael Kors 



Style Tip: If we are going out at night, I like to go all out. For me a long coat is a must to keep warm over a mini. This one is similar to mine, and I think the off- white balances out the super glamorous dress inside.


Style Tip: Once again, I wanted to mix red and light pink in the same outfit. I am in love with these shoes, they are that pair  that I can just display and look at. 🙂 I also chose the very feminine, delicate style to contrast with the bold, statement dress with sparkles, and sequins.




Face: BB Cream (In Light) | EyesEye Shadow Palette | Eyelids: Black Eye Pencil from this set (Used to line the top & bottom lids) | Eyelashes: Mascara | For Bronzed Glow: Bronzing Powder  | Lips: Lipstick (I mixed Say My Name & Private Selfie)



Coat: Zara- sold out (Similar On Sale , Love this J.Crew Option On Sale) | Dress: Sequin Mini Dress ( other sequin option on sale- $19) | Shoes: Badgley Mischka Open-Toe Pump | Jewelry: Wantable (reviews here)

    This is truly such a loving generous giveaway ?! I love your blog and your outfit is darling! This stay at home mommy of 4 boys sure could use some R&R with my amazing and very loving & supportive husband!
    We don’t have any plans yet for Valentine’s Day. But I would love to be able to buy a new dress and be able to surprise him with dinner with just the two of us, and maybe even a movie. It’s been 3 years since our last date night. And it would truly mean so much to both of us to get some alone time ?

    • Theboxqueen

      So happy to hear you like the blog and the outfit Holly. <3 I hear you on everything. As a mom of three, especially me being very picky about babysitters haha, date nights are few, and far between. They become much more special, when they happen 🙂 Hope you have a fab Valentine's Day with your husband, and best of luck with the giveaway. XOXO, Elif

      • Holly Guski

        They certainly do become that much more special

  • PrettyLittleLiar412

    well hubby just got a new job which is pretty good, so we are hoping to go out to eat. it will be with our toddler but it will be the first time we have gone out to eat to a real restaurant in a couple years! and I plan to wear either a little simple black dress and maroon drapey cardi, or my maroon blouse with black skinny jeans, wedges, and my leather jacket… nothing too special. 🙂 ty for this chance! I honestly have not done anything for valentines day in years. we have either been too broke, or he is just not that kind of guy— which stinks 🙁 I pretty much have to treat myself if I want to get treated lol. but hopefully with this new job of his he will have more money to treat with even if it’s just taking me out to eat- it would be a nice change 🙂
