What to Wear: Valentine’s Day


what to wear

It’s time for another round of What to Wear and this week we’re getting a head start on the ol’ Valentine’s Day looks. We don’t celebrate it around here, but don’t go thinking I’m a scrooge about love or holidays. I think any excuse to celebrate something can be pretty fun, and when I was a server it was a great day to make money off of date nights :)

Even though I don’t get into this holiday, I do love thematic dressing occasions so here you have it, what I would wear on Valentine’s Day. I actually wore this a few weeks ago and since my tights have hearts and I’m wearing pink, figured it was the perfect time to share.

You know what else I love? Airplanes and vintage. Yup, in case you didn’t know, I have my pilot’s license and am a sucker for anything with airplanes on it. When we were in Austin over New Year’s, Brian found this amazing tooled leather bag in a vintage store. On one side is a horse (pretty cool), but on the other side is an airplane (SUPER COOL!). It even looks like the Piper Warrior I trained in. But wait, this gets crazier… it even has ALL 3 of my initials in the right order, so it was meant to be. This bag was sitting in Austin, TX just waiting for me to find it one day.

I also love winning giveaways, which rarely happens, and this collar came from one I won on Amanda’s blog sometime last year. Cute, eh??

dress: thrifted
boots & bag: vintage
tights: old F21 (and worn for What to Wear: St. Patrick’s Day last year, haha!)
collar & belt: giveaway and gift- both from Amanda :)

    You look super cute :) That collar is adorable with the little fox on it. And you have your pilot’s license?? That is so badass. Your purse seems like such a cool and coincidental find too.

    p.s. I’m not big on celebrating Valentine’s Day either.

    This would be an adorable outfit for Valentines! That bag! What a lucky stroke of faith that was, it’s amazing.

  6. Amanda says:

    Love this outfit! That dress color is so wonderful and that little peter pan collar looks so adorable. It makes me happy to know there are others out there who don’t do much for Valentine’s Day but still loves to create a themed outfit for it :)

    Ooh, this dress is just lovely! And this bag is awesome, as well. Did I know you have your pilot’s license? I can’t remember, but that is seriously cool. Geez, Lisa. Graphic design, jewelry making, flying planes, and who knows what else? Is there anything that you’re NOT talented at?

    Thrifitng fate is the best!

  12. Marisa says:

    Gah!!! You ALWAYS put together some of my favorite outfits I’ve seen around. I need a little fox collar like that in my life fo sho! I totally forgot that you have your pilot’s license…that is just plain awesome.

  13. Laura says:

    I absolutely love this outfit! The color is so gorgeous and that bag is perfection!


  14. the collar really makes it on that dress, so cute, Amanda is the best! and wow, that is too crazy it has all of your initials on it!! totally meant to be. is your middle name Marie by chance?

  15. Justine says:

    OMG that bag was meant for you. Thats crazy that your initials are on it in order. I think that is a serious case of fate when thrifting. I probably would have cried tears of joy for the thrifting gods if I found something so perfect AND it had my initials on it. Literally marked for you. Also I didnt know you had your pilots license! Do you fly still?
